Vital EU uni funds


SCOTTISH colleges and universiti­es have received more than £140 million of EU funding, new figures have revealed.

The SNP unearthed the data as part of a bid to ensure Scottish higher education institutio­ns did not lose out on vital funding in the aftermath of Brexit.

SNP MSP Jenny Gilruth said: “These figures show how vital EU funding is to our universiti­es and the lack of certainty provided by the Tories puts this reputation on the line – risking the cream of our research talent walking away.”
