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.

This report summarises the  main learnings drawn from the exercise and makes  a number of  policy  recommendations about how and when to design and use PRFS for policymakers and PRFS designers. A longer report is published in parallel with this one, which presents the evidence and analysis underlying this one, together with the lessons and recommendations.

A growing number of countries are using performance-based research funding systems (PRFS) as part of their research policy mix. This article brings together evidence and experience about when and how PRFS can fruitfully be used to support policy development based on a number of studies conducted under DG RTD’s Policy Support Facility (PSF), in particular the Mutual Learning Exercise (MLE) on performance-based research funding systems in universities, but also in the MLE on Open Science and in the Specific Support actions for Latvia, Slovenia, Georgia and Bulgaria.

Small fixes are not enough to reach Open Science’s full potential. Systemic and comprehensive change in science governance and evaluation is needed across the EU and beyond. This article summarises the work and the key lessons learned during a Mutual Learning Excersise on Open Science, carried out under the Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility (PSF).

The report reflects the results achieved in a workshop organised under the Mutual Learning Exercise (MLE) devoted to widening participation to FP and enhancing synergies between FP and ESIF. The focus of this report is on strategies, innovative mechanisms and schemes developed at national or regional level and aiming at improving networking through participation in a wide variety of EU-level initiatives, in order to reinforce capacities to participate in the EU FP.

EU-28 2018 EU Report or Publication

This report is drafted by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission’s science and knowledge service. It aims to provide evidence-based insights into the performance of successful applicants in the Marie Sklodowska Curie Action (MSCA) fellowship scheme in order to support policymaking in the European Research Area. The scientific output expressed does not imply a policy position of the European Commission.

The main purpose of evaluation is to deliver policy intelligence, providing accountability, learning, and guidance. Evaluating public policies is a necessary step because any government intervention can only be justified if it has a complementary and positive effect, which would not have taken place without the policy. Even if there is evidence from some countries having started to monitor and assess their innovation-related procurement activities, we are still far from a common strategic framework for the practice of innovation-related procurement.
