Strathclyde University will be home to the new renewable energy facility.
The final funding pledge for an £95.7m centre for renewable energy research has been secured.
Strathclyde University will host the facility that aims to help develop a world leading centre for the development of renewable energy technologies.
Capital funding of £89m had already been secured from Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Funding Council among others, with the final contribution being £6.7m from ERDF announced on Monday.
The project aims to create up to 500 new research, technology and engineering jobs.
Alex Neil, Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, said: "It is a substantial boost for our renewables industry that we have secured the final £6.7m that will enable this world class project to go ahead.
"I am sure this project can prove a real boost for our economy, securing massive research investment and hundreds of new jobs."
