CRDF Global has implemented science and innovation initiatives in Kazakhstan since 1996. Our activities include supporting basic, applied and industrial research through collaborative grant opportunities; establishing a Virtual Science Library to improve access for Kazakhstani scientists to electronic journals; participation in the first U.S.-Kazakhstan Joint Committee Meeting on Science and Technology in 2013; and several collaborations with the U.S. Department of State and the Kazakhstan Ministry of Education and Science to strengthen the country’s technology commercialization capacity. CRDF Global partnered with the government of Kazakhstan and the World Bank to establish the Technology Commercialization Center (TCC), which started operations in November 2013 in Astana. The TCC was designed to build direct and indirect links with industry, academia, investors, startups, government agencies, service providers, media partners and other influencers and decision-makers. Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, CRDF Global has a strong connection with local partners through our office in Almaty.
