The total budget to deliver the Eureka! Mersey project is £11.75m.
Significant support has already been achieved for this project, with £3m secured from the Inspiring Science Fund funded by the Wellcome Trust and BEIS, and £1.368m secured from 3 major private Foundations and contributions from Wirral Council.
£6.642m, in the form of a grant from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Strategic Investment Fund, will be confirmed on 26 July 2019.
This leaves a funding gap of £800k.
Eureka! will be working with a variety of industry partners and further trusts and foundations to secure this funding over the next 24 months.
