Science Gets Outside Management

Abstract:
The government has approved a program for fundamental scientific research by the state academies of sciences through 2012, with budgeting of 253 billion rubles. The academies will be able to define their own research priorities, but they will have a financial controller in the form of a coordinating council made up of both academic leaders and government officials that will manage financial flows.
The Russian Academy of Sciences will receive about 160 billion rubes of the budgeted funds. Nanotechnology research, which was expected to dominate the list of priority areas in the government program, is placed on par with other aspects of scientific research. Nanotechnology research will receive additional funding from the budget of the Rosnanotekh state corporation.

Budgeting will now be by project and will be granted on a competitive basis. Criteria for a project's budgeting will include number of citations in the scientific literature, ability to attract extra-budgetary funding and expert assessment. Academies will be required to make agreements with banks to financial management.
