I am delighted to report that The Alan Turing Institute has secured £10 million new funding from EPSRC (The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council), on behalf of UKRI (UK Research and Innovation), for the period of 2021/22.
This funding will kickstart strategic investment in a number of activities which support the UK’s wider AI ecosystem and enable us to scale up our ambitions as a national institute. The funding has been awarded as part of a shared vision for growth and investment with EPSRC and our partners. It comes at a time when the Institute is seeking a more sustainable funding model which will help it to determine its long-term organisational vision and strategy, six years since its inception and following a period of considerable growth.
We are grateful to the EPSRC and UKRI for this investment. For more information on our funding model, visit turing.ac.uk/about-us.
