Announcing the recipients of the Innovation Fund 2017


Thank you to all of our donors and well done to recipients!

Every year, Warwick receives donations from alumni, friends, trusts and foundations. Most of these are given towards specific projects, like the new Mathematical Sciences building, or our scholarship programme which helps hundreds of students.

Other gifts are given to the areas of greatest need at Warwick, and shared out between important projects by our committee, led by Provost Chris Ennew.

This year we opened up funding bids under the newly named Warwick Innovation Fund, and we're now delighted to announce that the projects listed below will be funded or partly funded by donations.

To everyone who donates to these funds, thank you for making so many amazing things possible at Warwick.
You're ensuring an incredible student experience for those who study here, and ground-breaking research by those who work on a daily basis to make new exciting discoveries.
