Czech Republic focuses on higher quality research through modified research support

Andrej Babiš's government (ANO) approved the draft amendment to the Act on Support of Research, Experimental Development and Innovation from Public Funds on its session on May 6, 2019. The norm is designed to change the evaluation of research organisations so that quality of results is accentuated, not quantity. The other major change is taking into account the new concept for support for large research infrastructure. The existing wording of the law does not allow support for large research infrastructure.
