Το Υπουργείο Παιδείας ανέλαβε το συντονισμό, τη προτεραιοποίηση, την εκπόνηση της Στρατηγικής για την Ανώτατη Εκπαίδευση, τη συμμόρφωση με τους κανόνες της Ε.Ε. για την ενεργειακή απόδοση των κτηρίων, τις ρήτρες για την καταπολέμηση της απάτης στα δημόσια έργα και την εξασφάλιση του χαμηλότερου επενδυτικού επιτοκίου.

Τα έργα θα ξεκινήσουν μέσα στο 2017. Υπολογίζεται πως θα δημιουργηθούν 3.000 θέσεις εργασίας σε όλη την Ελλάδα. Είναι για τα περισσότερα ιδρύματα η πρώτη φορά μετά από δέκα χρόνια που θα δουν ανάγκες για υποδομές να χρηματοδοτούνται από το Ελληνικό Δημόσιο. Ολοκληρώνεται έτσι και ουσιαστικά πλέον μια διαπραγμάτευση με τη τράπεζα και ξεκινούν τα έργα για χάρη της δημόσιας ανώτατης εκπαίδευσης.

Το έργο “Hellenic Universities 1” καλύπτει τη νέα κατασκευή και αποκατάσταση πανεπιστημίων που δεν αναφέρονται ρητά στην οδηγία 2011/92 / ΕΕ για την εκτίμηση περιβαλλοντικών επιπτώσεων (ΕΠΕ), όπως τροποποιήθηκε από την οδηγία 2014/52 / ΕΕ, αν και το έργο καλύπτεται από το παράρτημα ΙΙ της οδηγίας σε σχέση με την αστική ανάπτυξη.

Κατά τη διάρκεια της αξιολόγησης, οι υπηρεσίες της EΤΕπ θα επαληθεύσουν εάν και σε ποια υποπρογράμματα απαιτείται εκπόνηση ΕΠΕ από την αρμόδια αρχή, καθώς και την αξιολόγηση των πλήρων περιβαλλοντικών λεπτομερειών. Τα δημόσια κτίρια θα πρέπει να πληρούν τουλάχιστον τους αντίστοιχους εθνικούς στόχους σχετικά με την ενεργειακή απόδοση. Οι σχεδιασμοί ενεργειακής απόδοσης των νέων και ανακαινισμένων κτιρίων θα επαληθευθούν κατά την αξιολόγηση.

Στο προγραμματισμό του Υπουργείου Παιδείας αυτή τη στιγμή βρίσκεται η έγκριση των μελετών, προκήρυξη συμβάσεων και εκκίνηση έργων μέσα στο 2018.
