The Ministry of Science, Education and Sports (MSES) is the central government institution responsible for implementing, coordinating and overseeing implementation of the science, innovation and technology. It is in charge of the allocation of budgetary funds for R&D activities in both public institutes and higher education institutions, as well as for the allocation of budgetary funds for the technology program and related activities. Financial assistance extended directly through MSES includes research grants, IT grants, scientific equipment grants, fellowships for young researchers, (international) mobility grants and grants for publishing activity, scientific conferences and awareness raising activities.
The two of the Ministry’s directorates cover the policy area in the field of science, technology and innovation: the Science Directorate and the Directorate for
International Cooperation.

The Directorate for Science consists of: Programmes and Projects Department, Action Plans and EU Funds Management Department and the Science System Development. The Science Directorate cooperates closely with the International Cooperation Directorate which administers EU-financed projects.

The MSES and Science Directorate allocates the majority of budget resources for research and development through the four main channels:
• Institutional funding including salaries of researchers (30% of the Science budget of the MSES);
• Competitive research grants (10%);
• Junior researchers programme (30%);
• The remaining budget resources are spent on the different supporting programmes such as scientific publishing, conferences etc.

The main advisory bodies that assist MSES in budget allocation and strategic development of science and higher education are the National Science Council (NSC) and the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE), appointed by the Croatian Parliament.
