Letter: Post-92 pain

March 15, 2002

Your coverage of the funding allocations ( THES , March 8) showed little appreciation of the harm they will inflict on many new universities.

Removing £17 million of collaboration research funding every year will be extremely painful. Average research income for new universities is set to fall by £457,000 a year to £1.55 million. The average income of old universities will rise by almost £1 million a year to £22.1 million. It is clear that the government intends to rebuild the binary divide.
