Research allocations unclear in government plan

The French government has unveiled a major investment plan worth €57 billion over the next four years, but it is not clear how higher education and research will benefit.

Prime minister Édouard Philippe presented the plan at a press conference on 25 September, saying it would fulfil president Emmanuel Macron’s election promise to balance public sector cuts with a programme to reinvigorate the economy.

Philippe said that the Grand Investment Plan, which includes €20bn for the government’s green economy transition programme, would “accelerate France’s adaptation to the demands of the 21st century, supporting our transition to a new growth model and preparing future generations”.
