17 SCIENCE AND TECHOLOGY POLICY IN REPUBLIC SERBIA SCIENCE AND TECHOLOGY POLICY IN REPUBLIC SERBIA New S&T policy Science Law was change to enable formation of new programs devoted at economic and technologic development of the country These programs are: program of fundamental researches program of technologic development national program for biotechnology national program on energy efficiency New regulations and criteria are adopted for research funding from public source, as well as new system of financial support. External evaluation of proposed research program was introduced.

18 SCIENCE AND TECHOLOGY POLICY IN REPUBLIC SERBIA The new S&T policy has the following basic components: 1.Scientific basic research that generates new knowledge and develop new scientists and knowledge workers. 2.Applied research and development that generates new technology and prototypes of innovative products and develops innovators and inventors. 3.Transfer of knowledge and technology into market. 4.Innovative products supported by efficient and productive production processes or services. 5.A global business and product development collaboration, as well as the competitiveness of global collaboration.

20 Technology Development Program: This programs aims to support local companies to develop or implement new technologies in order to improve their competitiveness on the global market. This program provides grants and loans to companies to engage experts from universities and institutes in their development projects. The areas covered are: information technology, electronics and electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, construction industry and civil engineering, biotechnology etc. Priority topics are specified, but one of the most relevant selection criteria is the financial participation of companies in their projects.

25 International Research Collaboration Program International cooperation in R&D: International R&D collaboration is one of priorities of our RTD policy. Serbia participates in the FP5, FP6 and FP7 programs of the EU as a West Balkan (INCO) country. Serbian researchers are also included in COST and EUREKA! activities. These programs allow Serbian researchers to have direct access to other research centers and their research standards, which has a positive feedback to the quality of research in Serbia.
