The article investigates how Russian companies cooperate with research organizations to conduct research and development in order to implement technological innovation. In order to assess behavioral changes, an analysis was carried out at the micro level on the basis of empirical data gathered from a survey of the leaders of more than 600 Russian manufacturing companies (2011–12) and about 350 research institutions and universities (2012). It identifies the key factors determining company demand for cooperation with research organizations, the main barriers to the development of scientific and industrial cooperation, and the specific nature of these barriers for different partners. The article considers the tools and features that are available under Russian innovation policy for stimulating partnerships, and also assesses the effect of this policy on the cooperative behavior of companies.
