PSF publishes final report on Specific Support to Bulgaria

The Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility (PSF) has published the final report on "Specific Support to Bulgaria: The research evaluation and performance-based funding system in Bulgaria". The report summarises the work of the PSF panel of four independent experts, from January to December 2017, including a mission to Sofia to consult stakeholders and discuss potential recommendations, to support the Bulgarian government.

The panel’s recommendations focus on:

  • The need to implement a structural reform of the R&I system as a precondition for any PRFS to be effective
  • How to refine the current PRFS design to ensure the introduction of a fair, transparent, simple and low-cost PRFS
  • The options for designing an integrated evaluation and research funding framework

The report can be downloaded from the European Commission's Research and Innovation Observatory (RIO) website.
