The difficulties of a transition period, worsening of the economic situation, destruction of previous economic, scientific and other connections, sharp decrease of a demand for a traditional Armenian production (including intellectual) have unavoidably led to the sufficient reduction in the activities of many scientific and technical subdivisions and relevant S&T capacious productions/industries. The reduced budget allocations to R&D, mainly used for salaries and covering growing operating costs, a sharp reduction of total number of research staff and slowdown of inflow of young specialists to science and technology resulted in deficiency of practicing scientists and emigration of qualified Armenian specialists to the developed foreign countries or other sectors of the economy. Figure 1 demonstrates percentage shifts of GERD/GDP through 1990-2002 (by new data in 2003 the level of 2002 is maintained).
