Targeting the Financing of Science in the Context of Strategic Planning

Abstract :

This study is devoted to assessing the possibilities of financial support for achieving strategic guidelines in the development of science and technology. The article analyzes the dynamics and structure of one of the most common indicators that make it possible to assess the country's scientific and technological development - an indicator of research and development domestic expenditure. The transformation of the goal-setting that has been carried out in relation to the development of science within the framework of strategic planning has been revealed - a shift in emphasis from the quantitative determination of established absolute values to relative values, which allows us to evaluate not only the dynamics, but also the structural changes in the observed phenomenon. The impossibility of achieving the established values of one of the main strategic indicators of the development of science in the conditions of preserving the existing trends of its financing is shown.
