PSF publishes comprehensive toolkit for performance-based research funding systems
The Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility (PSF) has published a summary article of the Mutual Learning Exercise (MLE) on Performance-based Research Funding Systems. The summary article provides a comprehensive toolkit for performance-based research funding systems. The case for Performance-based Research Funding Systems (PRFS) is building as more countries adopt them to increase the performance of their research system. To date, few comparative studies have been conducted bringing together practices and experiences with this relatively new policy instrument. The PSF MLE provided the platform for an extensive discussion on the challenges related to the design of PRFS and their position, role and value within the broader policy mix. The outcome is a comprehensive report providing insights on the advantages and drawbacks of the different options, and recommendations for an optimal PRFS design.
