Norway updates research budget

The Norwegian government has presented its revised 2015 budget, which includes extra money to increase participation in Horizon 2020 and funding for university mergers.

In the budget, present on 12 May, the government proposed that 24,000 million Norwegian kroner (€2.9m) be used to support the preparation of Horizon 2020 proposals. This is a kr344m increase from the original 2015 budget proposal, published in October. 

The government will spend kr5m on a campus for the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, which is planning a merger with the Sør-Trøndelag University College, the Gjøvik University College and Aalesund University College, according to the budget figures.
