Publication date: 3 February 2022 | Report language: EN
This is the Final Report of the Evaluation of the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (HFRI). Technopolis Group, supported by a panel of four experts, carried out this evaluation in the period September – December 2021. The study was commissioned by the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH) of the European Investment Bank (EIB), upon request by the HFRI.
The overall objective of the evaluation was to carry out an assessment and evaluation of HFRI’s activities, operational processes, and impacts during its first period of operation, in relation to the funding received. The aim was to produce recommendations for further development of the Foundation.
The findings are based on a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods, encompassing desk research, data review (HFRI portfolio and proposal/project data analysis), bibliometric data analysis, a stakeholder survey (successful and non-successful applicants), an expert panel site visit, stakeholder interviews, and an HFRI self-assessment exercise.
