The research project examines the connection between RDI activities and various incentives offered to companies by the state in connection with the implementation of RDI activities, as well as the connection with state incentives for supported RDI expenditures of companies and the performance of companies. The objectives of the project are to establish a comprehensive and coherent monitoring and evaluation of the Smart Specialization Strategy and cohesion policy measures in the field of research, development and promotion of innovation. To this end, we will first establish appropriate databases for monitoring and evaluating measures and identify measures to evaluate the effects. We will then identify the relevant characteristics of each of these measures and, based on them, select and implement appropriate econometric methods to assess the causal effect of the measure. To compare the operation and growth of indicators between recipients and non-recipients of the program, it is necessary to implement statistical methods that correct biases due to non-random selection, weak overlap in distributions of control variables and selection based on unobtrusive factors. The next goal of the project is to derive econometric methods for assessing the causal effects of programs, which are suitable for each measure separately according to parameters such as sample size, method and criteria for allocating funds, objectives of the measure, mechanisms of the measure and availability of quantitative data. Based on the findings of the evaluation of the Smart Specialization Strategy in the period 2014-2020, we will formulate an evaluation proposal and propose an appropriate methodology for changing Policy Objective 1 in the MFF 2021-2027: Smarter Europe by promoting innovative and smart economic transformation, and specific objectives in other European Cohesion Policy objectives. periods 2021-2027, which are the enabling condition of the renewal of the Smart Specialization Strategy.
