A coherent portfolio of competitive calls was implemented by the NRDI Office to facilitate the regulated, predictable and purpose-oriented use of RDI funds coming from EU sources and the National Research, Development and Innovation Fund (NRDI Fund). The calls of the portfolio developed from RDI sources in view of strategic considerations provide funding only to proposals that meet strict assessment criteria. The calls promote research excellence, corporate development and innovation, researcher-industry cooperation as well as the implementation of innovative ideas.

The timing and the budget of the RDI funding schemes of the EU-financed operational programme (Economic Development and Innovation Operational Programme Plus - EDIOP Plus) has been approved by the Government within the Annual Development Plan (ADP), upon the proposal of the NRDI Office.

The 2021 calls for domestic RDI proposals financed from the NRDI Fund are set out in the annual Programme Strategy adopted by the Government.
