'National Report on Innovation in Russia' is published, for the third year in a row prepared by the Russian Venture Company (RVC), the RF Ministry of Economic Development, and the RF Government’s Expert Council. Experts from the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge also contributed to producing the report. They suggested a number of advanced research methodologies and new indicators for measuring innovation development in the country. The indicator panel applied in the new report comprises 108 positions.
The proportion of innovative products from the Russian manufacturing industry on the global market is not more than 1%. Most of the products are either "breakthrough" for organisations, but already common in the industry (65%), or are an improvement based on previous products (about 23%), according to the HSE ISSEK information bulletin series “Science, Technology, Innovation”.
The new issue of the Foresight and STI Governance journal is devoted to the various aspects of innovative development and the creation of strategies at the regional, sectoral and network levels.
Professor Jonathan Linton, head of the HSE ISSEK Laboratory for Economics of Innovation, and Konstantin Fursov, senior researcher at the laboratory, analysed emergence and dissemination of innovations in various economic conditions. Results of their joint study were presented by Konstantin at the XV International Open and User Innovation Conference at the Innsbruck University (Austria)
