State and Problems of Innovation Policy in Bulgaria


  • Lilia Damianova


The reasons for the low innovation activity of Bulgarian enterprises have been examined. The need to develop a long-term national innovation policy and to increase considerably the R&D expenditure has been justified. The main priorities of such policy have been pointed out and specific measures for stimulating innovations in Bulgaria have been proposed. Emphasis is put on the necessity to apply a systematic approach in developing and implementing the innovation policy and its co-ordination with policies of the EU member states.
