HE accommodation budget receives an extra €70 million

The National Plan for Higher Education Accommodation in Portugal will receive an investment of €70 million (US$75 million), with the primary goal of reinforcing support for higher education institutions in response to the rising construction expenses experienced over the past year, Portugal’s government has revealed, reports SchengenVisainfo.com.

According to the government, adjustments in the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) have made it possible to increase the budget for building and renovating student residences from the original amount of €447 million to a new total of €517.4 million, reports SchengenVisaInfo.com.

Furthermore, due to the RRP’s reconfiguration, the ‘Impulso Mais Digital’ initiative is set to debut with a total budget of €105 million. This investment is dedicated to enhancing various areas of education.
