Finance shock for universities
The Canary Government says it is not in a position to confirm future funding for projects at the archipelago’s two universities.
La Laguna (ULL) and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) are seeking a commitment but the government does not envisage having sufficient resources because of the economic recession.
Both universities point out they have suffered a series of cuts and will not be able to improve infrastructures.
The ULL and ULPGC want to tie up a firm agreement so they can meet objectives and implement works. Director General of Universities, Carlos Guitián said this is looking “unfeasible”.
