CAPE Research Funding

The CAPE research portfolio so far amounted to £7.5 million in the first five and a half year CAPE phase, and as of February 2016 it amounts to about £5.4 million in the second phase which started on 1 April 2014, with several new projects on the horizon.

In the past, CAPE has been instrumental in helping the University to attract a further £6.9 million funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) through a successful bid for the Cambridge Integrated Knowledge Centre (CIKC). Additionally CAPE was supported by an EPSRC Platform Grant in “Liquid Crystal Photonics” totalling £1.4 million over ten years from April 2003.
