Lviv Regional Innovation Development Policy: "Duration: November 2010—February 2012
According to the World Economic Forum rating in 2009, Ukraine occupied the 52nd place in the area of forming factors for innovative development; 65th place in the area of new technologies; and 114th out of 134 countries in intellectual property rights production. In Ukraine the number of innovatively active businesses is decreasing, along with lower performance of high technology industries. These circumstances have a major negative impact on the competiveness of the national economy. The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine admits that the basic foundations of national public policy in the area of national innovation system have not yet been laid."
