The Newton Fund is a £375 million fund operated by the UK’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. It provides £75 million a year for five years, starting from 2014/15, and the intention is that UK funding is matched by partner countries. Through the Newton Fund, the UK will use its strength in research and innovation to promote the economic development and social welfare of partner countries. By working together on bi-lateral and multi-lateral programmes with a research and innovation focus, the UK will build strong, sustainable, systemic relationships with partner countries.
The Newton Fund is part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitment. The first years of the Fund will cover 15 countries: China, India, Brazil, South Africa, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Egypt and Kazakhstan.
