Russian science spend in 2016 to reach $1.3bn

Russia's Federal Agency of Scientific Organisations (Fano) has said that its budget is likely to reach 100 billion rubles ($1.3bn) in 2016, a similar level to the previous year.

In a statement, Fano said that the year’s budget will start at around 83bn rubles and is likely to receive top-ups amounting to a further 17bn rubles during the rest of the year. This mirrors the situation in 2015, when a decrease in initial funding was made up with additional funding made available later in the year.

Priorities for 2016 include an allocation of 700 million rubles for the country’s research vessels, as well as 350m rubles to set up a centre for ICT and digitisation research.
