Innovation is key to the progress of economies that aim at being successful players in the global market. In this context, the encouragement and protection of intellectual property and a forward looking science and technology policy are essential. The various facets of intellectual property and of the science and technology policies necessary for its generation and utilization are studied by a group of experts both from NATO countries and CIS countries. A series of country-specific discussions of the problems confronting the transition from a centralized to a market economy is followed by a broad overview of outlooks, mechanisms and experiences in market economies, and by recommendations of necessary policies for participation in the global market.
