In this paper, the research subjects’ priority setting and budgeting problem of economic activities has been investigated. Economic activity is named to an activity in which a person or a group of people produces goods or provides services using requisite information, raw materials, equipments and space. A scientific method has been presented for prioritization and budgeting of research subjects based on economic activities’ scores and priorities. The proposed priority setting method is a process of two phases. In the first phase, the scores of research subjects are individually determined for each economic activity. In the second phase, the final scores and priorities of research subjects are calculated based on scores of economic activities as well as the derived results from the first phase. In addition, a hierarchical approach has been employed for budgeting of research subjects. At the end, in a case study, the proposed method has been applied to prioritization and budgeting of 21 research subjects related to three economic activities of the agriculture section and the results have been illustrated.
