The aim of the Peer Review of Malta’s R&I system is to feed into the preparation of Malta’s national strategy for R&D and innovation post-2020.
The focus of the analysis is on the current National R&I Strategy 2020 and the policy mix, i.e. policies, measures and instruments supporting the public science base, public-private cooperation and business innovation dynamics. The Peer Review aims at supporting Malta’s efforts: 1) to continue R&I capacity building; 2) to improve the dynamics of the R&I system and 3) to improve the efficiency of current public investments in R&I.
