Plans are far advanced to set up the National Research Fund early next year to solve the problem of inadequate funding of research in the country, the Vice-President, Mr Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, has said.

He explained that the government would invite proposals early in the New Year, for limited funding for research from the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE).

The Vice-President made this known at the 15th graduation ceremony of the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Wa last Saturday.

?The government is committed to solving the problem of inadequate funding of research in the country,? he said.

Vice-President Amissah-Arthur outlined the government?s three-pronged approach in ensuring quality and equitable access to tertiary education in the country.

These are the framework and governance structure for the establishment of a university in the Eastern Region, a draft bill and guidelines for the conversion of polytechnics to technical universities and the migration of colleges of education to full tertiary status.
