David Willetts backs the Research Complex

David Willetts, Minister of State for Universities and Science, backed RCaH in his science policy speech at the Royal Institution of Great Britain on 9 July 2010. He said: "First, it makes sense for government to back shared facilities - research platforms if you like - which private companies could not develop on their own. So I'm delighted that a state-of-the-art laboratory is opening today at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire. The new £26million lab is next to the Diamond Light Source, the ISIS neutron source and the Central Laser Facility. It will allow researchers to work side-by-side with beam line experts in fields ranging from drug development to novel materials."
