RIPKA s overall aim is to address the INCO objective D2. Adjusting the System of Industrial Production and Communications by researching and benchmarking the innovation capacities and policies of Kazakhstan and Armenia using methodologies and indicators from the European TrendChart on Innovation.
By introducing TrendChart to Kazakhstan and Armenia, RIPKA will expose Kazakh and Armenian innovation policy institutions and policy-makers to European, as well as world wide, best management practice in innovation policy. It will also establish a means for closer ties between their national innovation policies and those of the European Commission and EU Member States. RIPKA will be carried out by ASSYSTEMUK, who have many years experience of TrendChart, and four renowned Armenian and Kazakh innovation policy research institutes - CIT, ASA, ENU and NIF.
In order to achieve RIPKA s overall aim, four key operational objectives have been identified
- Training. The four Kazakh and Armenian innovation policy research institutes will be trained to use the innovation benchmarking tools and methodologies from TrendChart
- Data Collection and Quality Control The Kazakh and Armenian innovation policy research institutes will systematically research and gather data on the innovation capacities and policies of Kazakhstan and Armenia to enable compilation of benchmark indicators and reports for TrendChart
- Policy Reporting and Benchmarking Analysis The Kazakh and Armenian innovation policy research institutes will report and benchmark the innovation capacities and policies of Kazakhstan and Armenia, using TrendChart indicators and methodologies
- Dissemination. The information compiled on innovation benchmarking in Kazakhstan and Armenia will be made publicly available via a RIPKA project website and the TrendChart website. Final dissemination conferences will be organised involving Kazakh and Armenian innovation policy makers and representatives of the Commission.
