£9.5M Boost For Yorkshire`s Education BusinessPublished: 18/05/06
Innovative schemes by the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield that will give Yorkshire firms a chance to share in a £150 billion global health market, or develop new processes for manufacturers, are among projects that will share in over £52 million for higher education institutions, Trade and Industry Secretary Alistair Darling announced today.
The awards are made under the competitive part of the third round of the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) to help build closer ties between business and higher education and turn ideas into enterprise.
In Yorkshire and Humber funding of £4,731,000 has been awarded to the University of Leeds which is leading the White Rose Health Innovation Partnership, and funding of £4,792,054 has gone to the University of Sheffield and its Centre of Excellence in Customised Assembly (CECA).
