Funding allocations bring more misery for French universities

Universities in France are set to receive a below-inflation rise in government funding for 2014.

In the allocations, announced by the ministry of higher education and research on 13 December, universities have been given €9.92 billion, an increase of 0.66 per cent overall compared with 2013. The projected inflation rate is at least 1 per cent.

The total includes €9bn for salaries, a figure 0.68 per cent higher than in 2013, and about €900 million for operations, an increase of 0.34 per cent in real terms, according to the Educpros blog. Allocations are calculated for each university separately, and the increases for particular institutions vary from 0.5 to 3 per cent.
