Government Introduces New Science Support System

The government introduces control over the effectiveness and size of state support for scientific projects. “The federal budget for this year provides over 350 billion rubles for applied research,” Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said at an operational meeting with the Deputy Prime Ministers.

“The performance” of those who receive “subsidies and grants from the budget for scientific research and experimental scientific development for civil purposes will now be assessed.”

The results of the work in this case “must be of practical importance and be protected by legislation on intellectual property.” The government directs money to various applied developments in healthcare, education, industry, space.

But scientists and laboratory staff should not rely only on state support, but also attract private investment – “at least half of the funds” from the cost of development and research.

All projects that have received state support will be included in the unified state information system. “This will make it possible to more effectively control how budget funds are spent, to support the most promising projects,” Mishustin said.
