Title EFIL

EFIL - European dataset of public R&D funding instruments aims at enabling users to investigate public R&D funding in Europe at the level of project funding instruments and Research Funding Organizations (RFO), addressing questions related to policy design and policy implementation. Objectives of EFIL are: (i) re-composing and characterizing the portfolios of funding instruments of relevant RFOs from selected European countries (AT; CH; CZ; DE; DK; EE; FR; IT; NO; UK); (ii) producing evidence of the structural and allocational aspects of funding instruments. The dataset provides a set of descriptors with an emphasis on a general characterization of the instrument (aim, mode of funding, composition of the decision-making body, etc.); funding allocation criteria and eligible beneficiaries; and funding amounts allocated. Following a first wave of data collection that assumed 2017 and 2018 as reference years for the re-composition of portfolios (release 1.0), a second wave has been completed, updating data up to 2021 (release 2.0). Budgetary data are covered for the period 2021-backwards to 2010. A peculiar feature of the facility is the possibility to characterize the instruments through key words and vocabularies. Indeed, the facility is complemented by a repository of official documents hosted on a cloud - composed of instrument calls, guidelines for participants, descriptions on official webpages, etc. - that is accessible to the database user. EFIL is integrated with other RISIS registers and datasets: OrgREG through the ID of the RFOs managing the funding instruments; and with NATPRO (a module of the EUPRO database) and SIPER, using the ID of the funding instruments.
