HEFCE confirms 2012-13 research spending

The Higher Education Funding Council for England has released the final figures for its recurrent funding for 2012-13, which show little deviation from its estimated research spending.

HEFCE’s total research spending in 2012-13 comprised about £1.02 billion on mainstream quality-related research, £241 million on research degree programme supervision, £197m on QR charity support, £63m on QR business research, £32m on the London weighting for mainstream QR, and £6m on QR funding for national research libraries. 

The funding council spent about £9m more on teaching than it had estimated for that period—£3.222bn rather than £3.213bn. It says that the difference was largely due to recalculations to reflect changes in student numbers.
