Abstract: The process of establishing the system theories contributing to creation and operation of the formal theory for management of science and technology sphere in the modern time is analyzed. Emphasis is made on relations between theories associated with the R&D management field and predictions about the system origin of R&D fields, and on historical barriers for effective use of these theories in building up the system for management of science and technology sphere in the Ukrainian context. The areas for further studies are highlighted on the basis of conclusions about absence of a formal theory for management of science and technology sphere.

Keywords: science and technology sphere, theory of R&D management, general history of systems theory, system approach, science and technology policy.
