Issues of financing scientific, scientific-technical and innovation activities considered at SCST

The issues of financing of scientific, scientific-technical and innovation activities from the means of the National Centralized Innovation Fund in the first quarter of 2018 were considered at the meeting of the board of the State Committee on Science and Technology. It stands to mention that the expenses of the National budget for science are 252.1 million rubles in 2018, including 48.5 million rubles or 19.2% of the annual plan. However, the actual disbursement of means made up less than planned volumes, according to Alexander Shumilin, Chairman of the SCST.  The state governing bodies and other interested departments have to take comprehensive measures for the implementation of the established indicators in the first half-year of 2018 in this relation. 

The issues of the implementation of state, branch and regional scientific-technical programs, including the problematic aspects during the implementation of the state scientific-technical expertise, were also discussed at the meeting of the board. Thus, all the state expert boards are supposed to be connected to the automated information system “Single Expertise” for the shortening of the period for its implementation and exception of the “human factor”. The works are supposed to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2018.
