As a state, we allocate too little funds for education. The percentage per capita in Europe shows that we are at the bottom, President Stevo Pendarovski said on Friday, addressing the presentation of the projects implemented within the student program Innovations in Smart Anything Everywhere INNO SAE at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies in Skopje.

He noted that there’s a small allocation of funds for research and development.

There is no state with satisfactory economic growth to allocate so little, as we as a state have unfortunately been allocating for decades in this area, the President said.

In terms of the projects prepared by the students, he said they were “a pioneering endeavor” that other Universities should look up to.
