A snapshot of the national research system in Turkey

This study aims to summarize the basic stylized facts regarding the Turkish national research system. Although it seems to be a descriptive study, it takes a generally analytical approach to official documents and statistics at both national and supranational level. It identifies areas that need to be addressed more effectively by the existing policy actions, including policy measures designed to foster innovation in services, non-technological innovation, innovation in the public sector, innovative public procurement, technology transfer between firms, and monitoring and evaluation of policies and programs. In this regard, BTYK has recently approved strategies and taken decisions to design and implement new measures aimed at promoting the enrichment of the policy mix, and addressing many of these highlighted issues.
