Research Excellence Grant Award rise for UofG

Research grant funding from the Scottish Funding Council for the University of Glasgow is to increase over the next three years.

The Indicative Research Excellence Grant (REG), which was calculated using information from the Research Excellence Framework (REF), will see Glasgow’s income from this source rise from £44,793,000 in 2014/15 to £45,793,000 in 2017/18. 

Other Scottish Ancients will see a reduction in their REG awards.

Professor Neal Juster, Senior Vice Principal at the University of Glasgow said, ‘The announcement of the Research Excellence Grant is good news for the University of Glasgow. It recognises the strength of research that is carried out here, and the growth in world leading and world-class activity noted in the recent UK-wide Research Excellence Framework exercise.

The total grant funding for the University of Glasgow from the Scottish Funding Council also notes the significant work undertaken by us to provide access for students with talent and ambition regardless of their background or economic circumstances.’

More details on the REG are available from the Scottish Government website.
