The annual budget reduction of PARTNERSHIP and IDEI Programs, which started in 2013, continue to have a negative impact on excellence in research. Five kinds of reactions are noticed: National Council of Scientific Research resignation; protests of a group of researchers in front of the building of Ministry; open letter of a project director to the prime minister; Ad Astra protest against cancellation of UEFISCDI; sue of Education Ministry. As a next step of individual evaluation process we recommend to take into account the citation number, Hirsch factor, G factor and the SPIRES classification scheme.
