Deal cut over university billions

Parties reach agreement on DKK 39 billion from the 'globalisation' fund

The ‘globalisation fund’ which includes billions for university funding is now to be divided out. This is after talks between government and the centre-left opposition have been successful.

»You got all the money you wanted. Almost«.

This is what the Minister of Science Helge Sander of the Liberal Party let slip in a speech to universities at a prize-giving in the University of Copenhagen’s Geological Museum, before going into more detail.

The globalisation-fund negotiations had been pulled from the rocks earlier this week after a politically dramatic shipwreck.

To broker the new deal, the government put DKK 429 million aside for education, and in return the opposition dropped its ultimatum on child benefits.
