Written answers (Question to Further and Higher Education)

The attached table sets out the total capital funding for infrastructure and equipment by institution over the period requested by the Deputy. The Department has undertaken a reverification process and the following parameters have been applied to the table:

- The table covers capital funding for infrastructure and equipment provided via the Department of Education and Skills over the period 2008-2019.

- The table does not cover funding for research programmes provided via either the Department of Education and Skills or the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation over the period. 

- The table does not cover funding for infrastructure and equipment that may have been provided via other Government Departments. 

The total, using these parameters amounts to €848 million.  We are in the process of compiling the total research programme expenditure over this period and I will forward this to the Deputy when available.
