European Investment Bank Provides GBP 200 Million for Oxford University's Programme of Improvement and Expansion of Research and Teaching Facilities
Sep 17 15
The European Investment Bank (EIB) has agreed to provide GBP 200 million for Oxford University's programme of improvement and expansion of research and teaching facilities. This represents the large ever single loan for university investment by Europe's long-term lending institution. The 30 year loan from the internationally owned public bank will be used alongside other sources of financing, including grants and philanthropic donations, towards the University's plans to replace and upgrade existing buildings across Oxford including the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter and to expand the Old Road Campus on the former Park Hospital site. The money has been allocated both to planned buildings and projects that have already been completed. The new investment programme backed by the European Investment Bank loan will strengthen specialised scientific research at the university. New laboratories for interdisciplinary bioscience will be built at the heart of the South Parks Road Science Area, building on the legacy of Oxford Nobel Prize winners such as Howard Florey, Hans Krebs, Dorothy Hodgkin and Paul Nurse. Research and teaching at the Department of Physics will benefit from new facilities with very low vibration levels and excellent temperature control linked on three levels to the existing Clarendon Laboratory. This new building, called the Beecroft Building, is currently under construction.
