Horizon 2020 Commission Expert Group for the evaluation of the Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility
The Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility (PSF) was established in 2015 to support European Union (EU) Member States and countries associated to Horizon 2020 (Associated Countries) in raising the quality and impact of their research and development (R&D) and innovation systems. This report evaluates the appropriateness and effectiveness of the PSF and provides recommendations on further improvement of its services to Member States and Associated Countries.
In summary, overall perceptions of PSF are positive and participants feel it adds significant value at EU and national level, though there are points that require attention. Our specific findings against the criteria set for this review are summarised below.
