Three days of plenary session in a row, then summer break. At the end there is another full program in the state parliament.
Munich (dpa / lby) - The state parliament meets on Thursday (9:00 a.m.) for its last session before the summer break in Munich. Among other things, the major higher education reform that the cabinet initiated in May is to be passed. In addition - before the traditional closing words from the state government, opposition and state parliament president Ilse Aigner - there is a debate about the expected explosion in costs for the planned second S-Bahn tube in Munich.
According to the state government, the Higher Education Innovation Act is intended to help future-proof the scientific landscape in Bavaria for the next 20 to 30 years and raise it to a top international level. Among other things, the reform relies on extensive organizational autonomy for the universities - also in the use of their funds and the construction of new buildings.
The university apparatus is to be debureaucratized and, for example, the appointment of professors should be made possible more quickly. In addition, professors and their employees should be able to invest more easily in companies or better support spin-offs.
