Abstract: The Public Research Funding (PREF) study is to collect information on and analyse national public research funding, providing an overview of its evolution and current state in European and selected non-European countries, particularly as concerns funding themes, fields and the types of allocation (competitive project based versus institutional funding). More specifically, the study aims: — For the countries considered, to collect quantitative and qualitative data (financial data and descriptors) on the evolution of public R&D funding for the period 2000-2014, including robust and reliable estimations of the shares allocated on project basis and as institutional funding; — To break down and provide a detailed analysis public R&D funding in terms of competitive and non-competitive funding, and of the weight placed on scientific-technological (S&T) fields, Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) and Societal Grand Challenges (SGCs); — To describe the funding allocation mechanisms, including flows to and from funding agencies and the criteria used as the basis for allocation decisions. — Using the above-described data, to analyse specific issues in public research policy, particularly concerning the characteristics of national funding profiles and the funding devoted to specific research objectives. The study contributes to the Research and Innovation Observatory (RIO), and provides support for development and implementation of evidence-based policies in allocation of public research funding.
