Ministry of Science promises to simplify the regulations, as a result of which scientific units will be able to afford long-term plans instead of - as it happens now - focus on too detailed annual settlements. Deputy Minister of Science Teresa Czerwińska told PAP about the ministry's plans.
Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education Dr. Teresa Czerwińska reminded that in October 2016 an amendment entered into force, the purpose of which was to reduce bureaucracy at universities. But the Ministry of Science plans further steps to simplify the regulations. "Now we are reviewing provisions in order to reduce reporting burden of research units" - said the deputy minister.
She added that her ministry was working on the simplification of procedures for calculating and accounting for the subsidies to maintain the research capacity of research units. Work on the new regulation is already underway, Deputy Minister expects that it will come into force in the second quarter.
