image of Innovation Performance Review of Tajikistan
The Innovation Performance Review of Tajikistan contains the outcomes of a policy advisory exercise that drew on the experience accumulated by the UNECE in the identification of good practices and policy lessons in the area of knowledge-based development, with particular reference to the problems of countries with economies in transition. It provides a set of recommendations and policy options to stimulate innovation activity in the country, enhance its innovation capacity and improve the overall efficiency of the national innovation system.



Economy-Science linkages and collaboration in the innovation proces

Tajikistan is at an early stage of developing industry-science linkages (ISLs), and it can be more relevant to speak about “economy-science” linkages (ESLs). Agriculture, for example, accounts for 23% of GDP and 67% of employment, with industry accounting for only around 29% of GDP. This chapter examines the role of Government in facilitating ESLs, with a particular focus on the legal and policy framework, HEIs and specific examples from the industrial and agricultural sectors. Based on this assessment, the chapter makes a number of policy recommendations to improve the functioning of ESLs in Tajikistan.
