Slovenia‘s parliament is expected to approve a 10-year strategy next week to give the country’s research and innovation sectors a major facelift. The plan aims to boost government funding for science, attract more scientific talent from abroad, and make the nation of 2 million the science and innovation hub of the western Balkans.
The proposal for the new strategy was accepted by the parliament at the first reading in early March, together with a complementary strategy for higher education. On 5 May, both plans were approved by the parliamentary committee on higher education, science and technology.
