Full article 

The research is aimed at establishing links between the structural policy of the state and innovation activities of economic entities. The goal of the research is to identify points of contact between structural and innovative policies, to determine degree of interdependence and mutual influence between them. Based on the purpose of the study, authors assessed the place and role of innovations in modern structural policy based on the synthesis method, and within the framework of the system method, the existing shortcomings of Kazakhstani structural policy in the innovative aspect were identified. Authors on the example of the Republic of Kazakhstan show the content of its modern structural policy through the prism of the hierarchy of program and strategic documents. Innovative programs illustrate the impact of structural policies on economic processes in the country. On the example of the implementation of the State Program of Industrial and Innovative Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan for 2016—2020, it is shown that the results of its implementation do not meet the goals and objectives of the program. This is due to the relatively low technological level of innovative projects implemented, as well as the difficulty of assigning these projects to a particular program. On the example of a number of specific indicators characterizing trends in the scientific-innovative sphere of Kazakhstan, it was confirmed that the implementation of structural policy in general and innovation policy in particular remains insufficiently effective. It is assumed that state bodies prefer not the development of the country's scientific-innovative potential, but the transfer of technologies to accelerate the process of intensification of economic growth. The results are aimed at improving the system of state regulation of economic processes in terms of intensifying innovation activities in the economy of Kazakhstan and adjusting existing program documents, which in subsequent studies will be expressed in the formation of a set of practical recommendations for improving the program documents of the EAEU countries.

Keywords: innovations, structural policy, innovative policy, innovative process, national innovative system's development strategy.
