Education Ministry to propose changes in universities' financing

The Education Ministry plans to submit another amendment to the Universities Act designed to change the way public universities and colleges are financed, Education Minister Eugen Jurzyca said after the government session on January 12, as reported by the TASR newswire. "We'd like to increase the amount of subsidies in 2011 paid to individual schools based on the number of publications published in internationally recognised publications," said Jurzyca, adding that the amount of money allocated for this purpose will increase year-on-year by 3.5 times.

"We want the money to follow quality." Also, the ministry plans to use the results of an analysis aimed at how universities inform students about their quality and announce a new system for accrediting professors.
