Institutions of higher education spent more than Euro 46 billion in 2013

As reported by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), that was 2.9% more than in 2012 (Euro 45.0 billion).

The rise in expenditure is due to a large number of factors, for instance the greater number of study places under the higher education pact, the foundation of new institutions of higher education, additional funds from the economic stimulus package, more externally funded research, and restructuring measures in university medicine.
