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:

- 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
