Fiyaksel E., Mikhail Nazarov.

This paper presents the results of an empirical study of the problems of regional innovation projects in the early stages of development. The study is based on a series of interviews with investors, experts, and representatives of technology transfer centers in a Russian region (Nizhny Novgorod), carried out in March 2012. The main identified challenges are the following: poor quality of the commercial vision of projects submitted to investors, an inability of the innovation teams to use the services of professionals to assess the market, and the lack of necessary competencies of technology transfer centers in the commercialization of projects.
