In line with recent global trends, Science, Technology and
Innovation (STI) Policy gained momentum towards attaining
economic development in Turkey. Turkish STI policy makers
channelled their efforts to gain power in the global arena
through activities to enhance the national STI base and boost
international STI cooperation. European integration process
and cooperation with Europe in the field of STI via
participation to EU Framework Programmes are observed to
influence policy making and programming trends in Turkey. In
this respect, Turkish STI Policy is analysed within the
context of European integration in order to shed light on the
main motives of policy formulation and implementation
processes. Resting on ambitious objectives, investments and
initiatives, Turkish STI Policy stimulates an analysis to
better elaborate its basic credentials and set a reliable
policy framework. This study presents a combined analysis of
Turkish STI Policy within the perspective of economic
development theories, pressures of globalization and the
process of Europeanization.
