PSF provides recommendations for overhaul of Georgia's innovation system
The European Commission's Policy Support Facility (PSF) has published a summary article with recommendations for an overhaul of Georgia's innovation system. The article is published on the Research and Innovation Observatory (RIO) website.
Despite solid economic development and a strong report card from the World Bank, Georgia faces a serious challenge as it looks for ways to improve its research and innovation performance. The Georgian Government turned to the PSF to draw up a list of recommendations for revamping its science, technology and innovation system. International experts set out recommendations in particular regarding the following "overarching problems" in the system:
- the low level of research and innovation (R&I) funding, and general uncertainty surrounding funding streams
- how research is organised (fragmentation) and the need for better integration
- the need to improve the national R&I system’s governance
