Principles for a New-generation Innovation Policy
Today the Russian economy is facing long-term challenges, connected with the global rivalry and exhaustion of sources for growth of raw materials exports. These challenges have led to activation of S&T and innovation policies during the last decade. The shift towards innovation-based growth has been declared in Russia as the key objective of the state policy and the only possible development model. During recent years a number of strategic documents was adopted, which were aiming at public support to S&T, integration between science and universities, creation of organizational, legal and economic incentives for innovation, improvement of the IPR regulation, etc. Further policy agenda for innovation is being intensively discussed.
