This is largely through our support for the Textiles and Colour Science activities, where we regularly make grants for student bursaries and equipment.  The Company also provides funding for early stage technological innovations developed in the two departments through the Clothworkers’ Innovation Fund.

The University campus includes a number of buildings funded by the Company, including most recently the Clothworkers’ Centenary Concert Hall, which received a £1.4m grant towards its upgrade.
