commercialization of innovations, the mechanism of tech­ nology commercialization, foreign experience of commercialization.


The commercialization of the scientific research results and innova­ tions is very important for the economy of Kazakhstan at the present time. Strengthening links between science, production and business is required for the formation of an innovative economy, which in turn will contribute to the development of domestic science. Formation of the objects of in­ novation infrastructure began just a decade ago in our country. Therefore, it is necessary to study foreign experience in the commercialization of in­ novation, analyzing the advantages and disadvantages, as well as studying the possibility of their application in our country. The article considers the definition and classification of commercialization of innovations according to international scientific journals, as mechanisms for the distribution of profits from the commercialization of the invention practiced in European countries. The experience of developed countries in the organization of providing commercialization of technologies was analyzed. By analyzing these problems, a number of measures was identified which are necessary for the development in the field of commercialization of innovations in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
