FIRST AND FOREMOST IT MEANS THAT THE LOCAL EXPERTISE IS ADDRESSING LOCAL PROBLEMS. THE GROWTH IN RESEARCH FUNDING COMING INTO THE UNIVERSITY IS EVIDENCE OF THE HARD WORK AND SOUND PLANNING WHICH HAS GONE INTO DEVELOPING THE UNIVERSITY'S RESEARCH PROFILE. FOR EXAMPLE, MR SPEAKER, IN 1995, RESEARCHERS AT NTU ATTRACTED $2.9 MILLION DOLLARS IN RESEARCH GRANTS FROM EXTERNAL AGENCIES ALONE, AND SIMILARLY IMPRESSIVE FIGURES ARE INDICATED FOR 1996. IN ADDITION THE UNIVERSITY ATTRACTS FUNDING FOR POSTGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS IN VICINITY OF $700,000 PER YEAR. MR SPEAKER, WHEN THE TOTAL ALLOCATION OF RESEARCH FUNDING FOR 1996 IS CALCULATED, THE NTU WILL HAVE ATTRACTED IN EXCESS OF $5.8 MILLION DOLLARS IN RESEARCH FUNDING. THIS REPRESENTS A TREMENDOUS GROWTH AREA FOR THE NTU. 20
