Government Funds for Italian State Universities

More than a month ago the Italian magazine L’Espresso published a report about government funds to state Universities (which are almost all the Italian Universities). It resulted the same government rules aren’t followed and money are actually given arbitrarily. Those rules include number of students, passed exams e research quality.

The most disadvantaged Regioni are Trentino-Alto Adige (with its only University of Trent around 18% lesser than how much due), Abruzzo and Piedmont (both at -16%); the most favored are Sicily (+20%) and Sardinia (+19%).

Among single Universities, the least funded are Bergamo in Lombardy (at -44%) and Chieti in Abruzzo (-25%), while the most funded are the University Institute of Motor Sciences in Rome (+66%) followed by Messina in Sicily (+35%) and Sassari in Sardinia (+27%).

You can find that report with a table of data at this page from L’Espresso site (in Italian).
