As the situation with COVID-19 has shown, mistakes associated with insufficiently developed policy measures in medicine, science, education and other socially significant sectors of the economy are very costly for society.

Within the first two months of the lockdown, COVID-19 had crippled almost all key production aspects of Russian industry.

The key outcomes and results are available in 'Theses' on IQ.HSE.

HSE ISSEK researcher Alena Nefedova and her colleague at HSE Marina Chernysheva looked at where in Russia innovators are most likely to be found, who they are, what kind of innovations they come up with, and whether these get implemented.
