Bu çalışma, Türkiye'de 1980 - 2015 döneminde bilim, teknoloji ve ekonomik büyüme arasındaki ilişkileri analiz etmektedir. Bilimsel yayınlar ve patent verileri sırasıyla bilimsel ve teknolojik çıktıları temsil etmektedir. Çalışmada doğrusal regresyon ve ARDL modelleri kullanılmıştır. Uygulanan modellerden elde edilen sonuçlar, bilim, teknoloji ve ekonomik büyüme arasında güçlü bir ilişki olduğunu gösteren önemli bir istatistiksel kanıt olmadığını ortaya koymaktadır. Çalışmanın sonuçlarına bağlı olarak, iki temel çıkarıma ulaşmak mümkün olabilmektedir. Birincisi, Türkiye'de üniversite ile sanayi arasında bulunan bağlar zayıftır. İkincisi ise, bilimsel makaleler, Türkiye ekonomisinin üretken sektörlerini doğrudan etkilememektedir.
In this study, we analyze the relationships among science, technology, and economic growth in Turkey for the period 1980 - 2015. We fitted linear regression and ARDL models by using scientific articles and patents as representatives for the scientific and technological outputs, respectively. The results obtained from the fitted models reveal that there is no significant statistical evidence showing a strong relation between science, technology, and economic growth. There are two possible interpretations of the results. First, the ties between university and industry are weak in Turkey. Second scientific papers of Turkey do not impact the productive sectors of Turkish economy directly.
