Cardiff universities to merge

The development of higher education and the knowledge based economy in Wales has received a massive boost with the announcement that the merger of the University of Wales College of Medicine and Cardiff University is to go ahead, backed by an investment package totalling more than 60Million.

Merger has won across-the-board backing among stakeholders of both institutions because of the overwhelming educational, economic and social benefits it will deliver. These include the further development of world-class teaching and research, the strengthening of the health service in Wales and the potential creation of 3,000 new jobs and a range of new high technology companies.

Rigorous business planning and analysis culminated in the Governing Councils' endorsement of the unification plan, which with substantial financial backing now secured, means that the Universities will forge ahead with merger in August 2004.

"This merger is based on strong foundations and ambitious but realistic aspirations," said Dr David Grant, Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff University.

"We are very excited at the enormous benefits that the merger will yield not only for the University and its students and staff, but also for future healthcare provision and economic vitality in Wales."

Professor Stephen Tomlinson, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales College of Medicine endorsed these comments, adding "There is huge potential for interdisciplinary research and education with investment in innovative collaborations, bringing together the Humanities, the Physical Sciences and the Biomedical and Health Sciences."
