GUIDE TO THE GRANT PROGRAM "PRODUCTIVE SECTOR CONSORTIA"

 

The grant program will focus on solution of systemic problems, such as:

  • weak linkages and horizontal coordination in the National Innovation System (NIS); and;
  • low demand and supply of innovation.  The lack of a structure linking the three major NIS stakeholders – productive sector enterprises, research institutes, and universities – hampers consolidation and synergy between these organizations.

The Productive Sector Consortia will contribute to improving of Kazakhstan’s WEF GCI indicators. The Consortia Grant Program will stimulate improvement of industry, research, and education organizations’ collaboration, quality of scientific research institutions, cluster development, value-chain breadth, firm-level technology absorption, and FDI and technology transfer factors. 

The Productive Sector Consortia are expected to:

  • Build and strengthen systemic partnerships between productive sector enterprises, research institutes, and universities;
  • Stimulate supply and demand for innovation: the private sector investment in R&D and research organizations’ generation of quality R&D;
  • Support industry-research coordination infrastructure, industrial innovation, and technology development and transfer to solve systemic problems in productive sectors;
  • Promote collective efforts to develop critical technologies in the areas of national importance;
  • Facilitate collaboration with leading international research centers and companies.

 

The grants will be awarded to Consortia addressing strategic challenges in priority science and technology directions, as defined by the Higher Scientific and Technical Council and in the Address of the President of Kazakhstan as of January 31, 2017:

  • Rational use of natural resources, including water resources, geology, processing, new materials and technologies, nanotechnology, safe products and structures;
  • ICT and space technologies and scientific research in natural sciences;
  • Energy and machine-building;
  • Sustainable development of agro-industrial complex and safety of agricultural products;
  • Life and health sciences; and;
  • National security and defense (unclassified);
