University Funding

Posted on 23 September 2010


France, in the midst of its own austerity programme, is spending an extra €1.8bn a year on research and higher education in 2010 and 2011, with Germany increasing investment by €18bn on science alone from 2010 to 2015, the US doubling basic science spend between 2006 and 2016 and huge investments by China and India. Reductions in direct support for science coupled with catastrophic proposals for university funding will relegate the UK to non-league status in the aggressive international competition to develop and profit from new technologies.
