CAMBRIDGE, U.K.-- On Monday, Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown announced that the British government would invest more than $100 million over the next 5 years to help jump-start a broad new research and education alliance between the University of Cambridge here and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The institute will make use of existing infrastructures and will focus on staff and student exchanges, joint research and education projects, and adapting MIT's business programs to the United Kingdom.
