One of the major functions of bodies directing research activities is to define and pursue a scientific and technological policy which involves:
  • multiaspect analysis of the current state-of-the-art and trends in science and technology development;

  • ormulation of a system of long-range and short-term goals facing science and technology, to meet the needs of society and development of science per se;

  • selection and all-round evaluation of the research areas contributing to the accomplishment of the goals set, and determination of priority areas;

  • analysis and estimation of scientific and technological potential, its consistency with the problems solved, determination of the required resources and their allocation to contributors;

  • R&D coordination with regard to the cross-impact of different disciplines, their contribution to solution of scientific and practical problems;

  • advancement of research activities, promotion of the formulated policy implementation;

  • monitoring the scientific policy implementation, evaluation of progress in the goals accomplishment, exercising necessary adjustments.
