$110 million allocated to stimulate productive innovations
Project to stimulate productive innovations launched in Kazakhstan this year. It is planned to allocate $110 million for its implementation. The funds will be directed for research work, staff training and promotion of the know-how of domestic scientists. The Ministry of Education and Science announced a competition for grants to start using ready-made ideas of developers. Anyone can submit application to the contest by the end of August.
Alau AKHMETZHANOV, DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT:
A scientist can’t know everything. He can’t be a scientist, an entrepreneur, a marketer and a financier. Technology commercialization office provides such assistance for him. In addition, we plan to create within the project an Institute of technology brokers. They are, in fact, companions, which will help scientists to bring their product to the market.
