In the next year the Public Universities in Portugal will receive less 15 millions euros than they received from the State this year. At least this is the proposal presented by the government. Since 2005 this means a cut of almost one forth. Of course the President of the Portuguese Universities Deans Council (CRUP), said this could imply a “net sustainability” problem.

In addition the proposed cut in the budget of polytechnic Institutes can amount to 30% in six years. Anyway we all know that this is untenable.
