В«Although in 2012 planned to 4,3 billion rubles, I am convinced that the amount will be reviewed," - he said and noted that the maximum money fund received in 2009, it was little more than 7 billion rubles.
Commenting on the message that in 2010 the funding of science has been reduced by 30%, Fursenko said that displeased with that. Foundation for Basic Research, RFH and the Foundation for Promotion of Small Enterprises in Science and technology - are very effective tools, and they must be maintained in the first place "- said the minister.
He added that before the 2008 crisis could withstand a ratio that was specified in the documents: 6% of the cost of civil science stands for Basic Research, 1% - at RFH, 1,5% - on the Assistance Fund Development of Small Enterprises. "It was spelled out, but hung in the air, because since 2004 the graph on the financing of science was lost from the budget, it was disbanded for a number of articles" - said Fursenko.
В«Starting in 2005, since when it was created a new ministry, this relation persisted. In 2008, it was broken downwards, because the sharp increase in funding of science through applications targeted programs ", - added the Minister of Education and Science.
