The Ministry of Finance released almost 17 million for universities to fight the crisis – Domestic – News

On Friday, the Ministry of Finance (MF) of the Slovak Republic released almost 17 million euros for public universities. The funds are intended to compensate for increased energy prices. TASR was informed about this by the press department of the Ministry of Finance.

After evaluating the available documents and data, the Department of Finance approved the request of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sports of the Slovak Republic to release funds beyond the budget for public universities. The total amount is 16,864,182 euros. “This is one of the support measures to ensure the proper functioning of education in Slovakia during the energy crisis,” said the Slovak Ministry of Finance.

Last week, the Slovak Ministry of Finance released 30 million euros for regional education. Subsequently, the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sports (MŠVVaŠ) of the Slovak Republic provided this sum to school founders to supplement operating costs due to the increase in energy prices. An overview of the financial resources that individual founders will receive was published on the website of the Ministry of Education. “We thus provided a total of 47 million euros, which are used to ensure that the teaching process at the level of primary, secondary and higher education is not endangered during the crisis,” states the Ministry of Finance.

The Department of Finance added that compensation for higher energy prices will be dealt with comprehensively by the Government of the Slovak Republic at the level of residents, entrepreneurs and public administration. “We are currently waiting for the conclusions of the negotiations with the European Commission so that the Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic can evaluate the overall scope of the problem and its subsequent impact on the budget of the public administration,” concluded the Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic.
