Abstract

The transition has not brought about the integration of previously separated R&D institutes into industry, which would have been the best option from an economic point of view. Instead several other processes seem to dominate of which conversion of R&D institutes into production or service enterprises is very common. The processes involved in the transformation of R&D have generated several quite peculiar phenomena (diversification of R&D institutes, spontaneous privatisation, quasi-spin-offs) which we consider to be temporary before the systems settle within the basic features of R&D similar to those in market economies. While from the institutional side the ultimate states may appear similar, the actual transformation processes are very much nationally specific and their outcomes will have qualitatively different effects on the role of R&D in the growth of individual economies
