Кадры для инновационной экономики: как в действительности обстоит дело с их подготовкой?
The role of higher education in shifting the economy to an innovative development path is considered. It is shown that innovations in the sphere of material production and in other sectors of the economy are carried out at low rates, and the higher school of Russia makes a very modest contribution to their implementation. The reasons for the current situation are analyzed, among which are insuffi cient funding for universities, deregulation of the labor market, curtailing scientifi c research. The ways of mobilization of the innovative potential of higher education are proposed, among them are the updating of the content of education and the strengthening of the relationship of universities with science and production through the development of targeted training. The management issues of higher education and science are touched upon.
