SLMS investment in research equipment

SLMS holds annual calls for matched funding towards research equipment. Awards are made through a competitive process led by the SLMS Research Board. The funding is provided from UCL strategic reserves and is for capital equipment purchases only. 

As new equipment is purchased, it will be entered into the UCL Research Equipment Catalogue.
