£46 million has been earmarked for instrument development at ISIS

£46 million has been earmarked for instrument development at ISIS through to 2016.

The UK government (Department of Universities, Innovation and Skills) has announced that £25 million has been earmarked for investment in instrument development at ISIS through the Large Facilities Capital Fund

This investment will cover the period 2012-2016 and is in addition to the £21 million already earmarked for Target Station 2 Phase 2 for the period 2009-2013. The sustained investment programme will allow ISIS to keep its instrument suite at the forefront for the next decade, enabling cutting edge research by its many hundreds of UK and international users. The Target Station 2 Phase 2 project is planned to go through the Gateway process this autumn to enable the release of the £21 million funding so that instrument design and construction can start in 2009.
