‘Cooperation with R&D Organisations and Universities Is Significantly Distinctive for Advanced Innovators’

The innovation performance of firms depends on their ability to innovate in cooperation with external partners. In their study, HSE researchers found that most of innovation in Russian manufacturing happens in a sort of open processes, but extensive cooperation networks are barely detectable. The study was published in the December issue of Foresight and STI Governance.

Pandemic Bolstered Ties between Science and Society

Сфера науки, технологий и инноваций устроена еще более нелинейно и сложно, чем кэрролловское Зазеркалье. Странам и компаниям, претендующим или закрепляющим лидерский статус, мало бежать со всех ног, чтобы только оставаться на своих местах в глобальных цепочках, или как минимум вдвое быстрее, чтобы занять новые. Какие стратегии приводят к успеху, какой багаж знаний необходим для эффективного управления в сфере НТИ, на какие тренды и метрики важно ориентироваться, обсудили участники Х Форсайт-конференции НИУ ВШЭ на широком спектре страновых кейсов и отраслей и с оглядкой на главный джокер года — COVID-19.

(Sources: Monitoring of Education Markets and Organizations (MEMO), Monitoring Survey of Innovative Behavior of the Population (MSIBP), additional materials of the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge (ISSEK), as well as results of a survey by the HSE Centre for Institutional Research (CIR).

Facts about Science in Russia from HSE Research Studies

Science — a large branch of economics in which, the resources are consolidated, transactions are carried out, and significant units of scales are created — requires a consistent, and systemic description. For the past 15 years, the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge (ISSEK) of the Higher School of Economics has been studying the state of science in Russia using a system of statistical indicators. ISSEK provides long-term foresight on scientific development based on foresight tools. On the occasion of the Day of science in Russia, HSE ISSEK issued two program publications — the infographic report "Russian Science and Technology in Figures" and data book "Science and Technology Indicators".
