Research budget clears first legislative hurdle

The French government’s proposed 2017 higher education and research budget has been approved by the National Assembly on its first reading, and will now proceed to the Senate.

On 7 November, National Assembly members approved the proposed higher education and research budget, which contains a €850 million increase in spending for 2017.

The approval puts French universities on course to receive a budget boost of €480m compared with 2016, including an extra €100m for dealing with increases in student numbers. Meanwhile, France’s public research institutions and funders will receive an extra €280m.
