The PI will also apply the research findings to novel applications such as to enable a more stable LINK network of banks by providing a fair cost sharing mechanism to the LINK members on their shared ATM network. The EPSRC provides funding to cover the 90% of the PI time for the period of 5 years to solely focus on research (value: £523,037).
