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.



Opportunities and challenges of Kazakhstan's intellectual property system for different user groups

This chapter analyses the needs and challenges of four groups of potential and actual users of Kazakhstan’s intellectual property system: universities and public research institutes, innovators in traditional and informal sectors, “catching up” businesses such as small and medium-sized enterprises, and the most advanced “frontier” firms, including Kazakhstan’s state-owned enterprises as well as multinational companies. The analysis identifies ways that national users can take greater advantage of the intellectual property system and, in so doing, strengthen innovation performance in Kazakhstan.
