Specific Support to Bulgaria - Final Report: The research evaluation and performance-based funding system in Bulgaria

This 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
