Higher Education Innovation Fund. Funding Proposals. Consultation. Report.
Higher Education Funding Council for England, Bristol.
This document outlines proposals for higher education institutions in England to apply for special funding for activities that will increase their capability to respond to the needs of business (including companies of all sizes and a range of bodies within the wider community) for cases in which this will lead to identifiable economic benefits. It asks interested institutions to respond about strategic priorities and funding proposals for this initiative. The new Higher Education Innovation Fund builds on previous findings and is designed to sit alongside institutions' teaching and research activities, enabling them to secure the maximum economic benefit from these activities. The fund will continue to provide a platform of core funding to help institutions enhance organizational and structural arrangements to implement their strategic aims in responding to the needs of business. It is proposed that higher education institutions will be invited to apply for these funds by May 2001. Two appendixes contain guidance notes about funding and the application guidelines. (SLD)
