The HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge conducted a study of best management practices in the science and technology area. The results, and a proposal to set up an online platform for monitoring such practices, were presented at a round table discussion hosted by HSE.
The HSE ISSEK released its fifth Russian Regional Innovation Ranking at a press conference hosted by TASS. Almost half Russia’s regions are relatively stable in terms of innovative development: their positions in the ranking have not changed significantly. The Republic of Tatarstan, followed by Moscow and St. Petersburg, tops the Ranking.
An important area being researched today is the relationship between universities and the government in the formation of socioeconomic policy, and this discussion was raised at the international seminar “Universities, Inclusive Development, and Social Innovation” that took place as part of HSE’s XVIII April International Academic Conference.
On 8 December ISSEK hosted a discussion of best R&D and/or S&T management practices applied by academic organisations. Leading science, technology and education experts discussed conceptual models of R&D management, analysed various aspects of measuring academic organisations’ performance, and debated whether it would be at all possible to develop any universal success recipes.
Discussions at the “Foresight and STI Policy” conference the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge is hosting for the sixth year in a row, highlight the changes in approaches to studying the current state and expected development trends in the S&T sphere. Major trends of Russian and international Foresight studies include deep integration of their results into science, technology and innovation (STI) policies at all levels, growing number (and complexity) of analytical techniques, and involvement of new actors.
The fifth International Academic Conference on Foresight and STI Policy took place at the Russian National Research University – Higher School of Economics (HSE, Moscow) on 18-20 November 2015. The conference was organized under the auspices of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. Among the speakers of the conference were officials and experts from Russia and other countries.
National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) and Brazilian Center for Strategic Studies and Management in Science, Technology and Innovation (CGEE) founded an International Foresight Centers Network. The Letter of Intent was signed on November 20, 2015, on the concluding day of HSE V Annual International Academic Conference on Foresight and STI Policy.
What should Russia’s policy be on Science and Technology? What do Russian and international foresight research results show? How is international cooperation in science developing? These are among the questions which will be discussed at the 5th annual international research conference on Foresight and STI Policy at HSE on the 18th — 20th of November.
