€500m boost for science budget

The French government has proposed a budget for 2020 that would increase the research and higher education ministry’s allocation by €500 million.

The ministry would have its spending limit set at €25.48 billion in 2020, compared with €24.98bn in 2019, according to a spending plan published by the government on 11 July.

No breakdown was given of how the extra money would be spent, but the plan says that the increased allocation would allow the ministry to finance its scheme to improve conditions for students and its share of the national artificial intelligence strategy, which will run until 2022.
