National intellectual property (IP) systems can play a pivotal role in fostering innovation and knowledge diffusion. This report analyses Kazakhstan’s IP system with regards to its support of the country’s innovation performance. In particular, it assesses the organisation and governance of Kazakhstan's IP system as well as the needs and challenges faced by different groups of actual and potential IP users – ranging from universities and public research institutions to state-owned enterprises and small businesses. The review provides a comprehensive set of statistics describing the use of IP in Kazakhstan in recent years, identifies the system’s strengths and weaknesses, and presents a range of specific policy recommendations to address existing challenges.


Foreword and acknowledgements

National intellectual property (IP) systems provide a critical policy toolkit for fostering innovation performance and knowledge diffusion. This report is part of a series of country reviews aimed at identifying how national IP systems can better serve these objectives (http://oe.cd/ip-studies). The publication National Intellectual Property Systems, Innovation and Economic Development presents the analytical framework used for these country reviews. The framework is used to analyse the key mechanisms that enable IP systems to support countries’ innovation and development objectives. This allows strengths and weaknesses in the intellectual property system’s contributions to national innovation performance to be identified.
