Key International Series and Editions

'Science, Technology and Innovation Studies' (Springer & HSE Joint Series)

Science, technology and innovation (STI) studies are interrelated, as are STI policies and policy studies. This series of books aims to contribute to improved understanding of these interrelations. Their importance has become more widely recognised, as the role of innovation in driving economic development and fostering societal welfare has become almost conventional wisdom. Interdisciplinary in coverage, the series focuses on the links between STI, business, and the broader economy and society. The series includes conceptual and empirical contributions, which aim to extend our theoretical grasp while offering practical relevance. Relevant topics include the economic and social impacts of STI, STI policy design and implementation, technology and innovation management, entrepreneurship (and related policies), foresight studies, and analysis of emerging technologies. The series is addressed to professionals in research and teaching, consultancies and industry, government and international organisations.

The Global Innovation Index

The Global Innovation Index (GII) is compiled by Cornell University (USA), INSEAD Business School (France), and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO, a United Nations agency) since 2007. Leonid Gokhberg, HSE First Vice Rector and Director of the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge (HSE ISSEK), is a member of the GII Advisory Board and provides advice on the research underlying the index. Leading HSE ISSEK researchers contributed to GII reports by providing chapters on Russia's innovation system development in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017 years.

'BRICS National Systems of Innovation' (Routledge Series)

The BRICS Project was launched by Globelics expert community, and for eight years was implemented by the consortium comprising, apart from ISSEK, the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the Centre for Development Studies (India), the Tsinghua University (China), the Tshwane University of Technology (South Africa), etc. During the project’s first years, the expert groups concentrated on developing a comprehensive vision of structural features, factors, and challenges relevant to the five countries’ innovation systems; sharing their experience in various innovation policy fields; and structuring international comparisons. The results of this work were presented in 2013—2014 in a series of collective monographs BRICS National Systems of Innovation published by Routledge international publishers.
