Indri J. Asmara, Elmi Achelia, Nani G. Simamora, and Bagus Sartono
Abstract—Research institutions play a role in creating science and innovation. Public Research Institution (PRI) as government-funded research institutes has been recognized as a strategic actor which has responsibility for encouraging researchers in producing efficient qualified research. An Indonesian PRI conducts research activities in basic, applied and experimental research with various fields of science such as life science, earth science, engineering science, and social and humanities science. This paper aims to provide an overview of PRI's R&D performance by measuring efficiency in R&D performance using the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method in 35 research units that were used as objects in a government R&D institution in Indonesia. DEA calculates input and output in the R&D unit which has 1,735 researchers and output in each field of science. The result shows that R&D performance was very different between the field of science and age group of researchers. The conclusion is that most of the efficiency created by young researchers. And the field of science that has near efficiency compared to other fields of science is engineering.

Index Terms—R&D performance, efficiency, DEA, researcher.
