Image of university fund and estimation

An expert of the Cabinet Office Working Group estimates that a large investment profit of 300 billion yen will be required every year over the 10 trillion yen “university fund” that the government will leverage domestic research institutes that compete with universities around the world. It was summarized by the 19th. In order to provide long-term subsidies to six universities, it is necessary to have a high yield of 3% on the rate of increase in consumer prices, which produces a profit of about 300 billion yen a year. Compared to the US university fund, which is mainly funded by graduates’ donations, the risk is higher, and government officials have said that “careful discussion is needed.”

The fund is scheduled to start operation within this year and is expected to be in the top 50 in the world. The working group will show the basic policy by the end of July, using the estimation as a starting point.
