Efficiency of money allocation in scientific grants
- Currently working on the evaluation of grant proposals

Disertační téma:
Efficiency of money allocation in publicly financed projects

Disertační teze:
The dissertation aims to examine the efficiency of public financing and to propose efficiency improvement mechanism of the money distribution. The focus will be on two particular areas - scientific funding, and European funds allocation.
Fist part will deal with the efficiency of scientific funding. The Grant Agency of the Czech Republic distributes yearly about CZK 1,500 million to scientists. Successful is only circa one third out of the 2,200 applications. The literature deals with the problem of how to effectively select the projects for financial support and no study explores the efficiency of the public money allocation. The problem of trade-off off between effectiveness in terms of low transaction costs and possibilities of control over the quality of the project’s result needs to be solved by all public funds redistribution. The grant agencies commonly use peer reviews or scoring.
The main aim of the dissertation is the evaluation of the choosing procedure effectiveness in terms of low transaction costs. The second part will deal with the efficiency of European funds allocation. European Union operates with large amounts of public financial resources. In 2016 EU redistributed only to the Czech Republic CZK 128.3 billion into areas such as regional development, employment, and research and innovation. The mechanism of the redistribution is complex; besides large structural funds, EU provides also direct grants for specific projects that are chosen based on submitted proposal similarly as the scientific projects. Recently Toolsema & Allers (2014) compared the block and matching grants in the Netherlands and found block grants more efficient than matching grants and more equitable than fixed block grants. The dissertation will in a similar way more generally examine the efficiency of European funds allocation in terms of goal setting and achievement.
The third part will test the proposed mechanism of money allocation improvement in laboratory or field experiment to assess whether the new approach outperforms current system.
