PBRF - Performance Based Research Fund

What is PBRF?

The Performance-Based Research Fund was established by the Ministry of Education and the Tertiary Education Commission in 2003.

The purpose of the PBRF is to ensure that excellent research in the tertiary education sector is encouraged and rewarded.  This means assessing the research performance of tertiary education organizations (TEOs) and then funding them on the basis of their performance.

In order to meet these aims, the prime focus of the PBRF is on rewarding and encouraging excellence.
