Slovakia 2018 Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility

In this report, the team of experts presents the changes made to the Slovak start-up ecosystem since the presentation of their recommendations in their first report at the end of 2016. As most of the measures are still ‘in the making’, their final materialisation remains somewhat open. Nonetheless, the planned moves suggest substantial efforts on the part of the Slovak government to implement the recommendations.

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.

EU-28 2018 Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility

A growing number of countries are using performance-based research funding systems (PRFS) as part of their research policy mix. The European Commission as well as other international entities such as the OECD and the UNESCO often promote PRFS as a solution for research governance issues. Their comparative novelty as policy instruments, however, means that often, the complexity in their design is underestimated, their value as policy instruments misunderstood, or the risks and negative (undesired) effects that they may have on the research system not sufficiently accounted for.
