The article highlights the importance of personnel training for digital economy. A list of the most demanded soft skills necessary for future jobs in industrial sector has been formed according to the results of foreign and Russian research. The list includes complex problem-solving, social, process and systems skills, and cognitive abilities. The research conducted by the authors is focused on the soft skills formation and development, which is relevant both for employers and universities which train specialists. For training of the skills mentioned above such interactive forms of learning as case study, round table and computer business simulator are suggested. The article studies the experience of practical usage of each of these forms in the discipline of "Business Informatics" in bachelor's and master's degrees programs, gives some examples and specifics of application. By modeling the processes of interactive classes, the link has been established between the activities performed by students and certain skills formation. The specification of interactive activities has made it possible to work out a differentiated approach for formation of soft skills of the future and recommend such interactive forms of training students for their further development. In this case soft skills are formed in line with acquisition by students of competences stipulated by the educational standards of higher professional education

We strongly believe that materials presented will contribute to further advances in Business Informatics and will foster intensive scientific cooperation between researchers.
Computer systems have become an integral part of the modern business environment, ensuring a dominant role for Information Communication technologies (ICT) in enterprise activities. The way the global information infrastructure facilitates competition in business has created a new corporate culture for which information systems have become vital managerial components. Business Informatics is an interdisciplinary area, integrating computer science technology and business administration.

The paper provides a number of proposed draft operational guidelines for technology measurement and includes a number of tentative technology definitions to be used for statistical purposes, principles for identification and classification of potentially growing technology areas, suggestions on the survey strategies and indicators. These are the key components of an internationally harmonized framework for collecting and interpreting technology data that would need to be further developed through a broader consultation process. A summary of definitions of technology already available in OECD manuals and the stocktaking results are provided in the Annex section.
Over the last two decades national policy makers drew special attention to the implementation of policy tools which foster international cooperation in the fields of science, technology, and innovation. In this paper, we look at cases of Russian-German collaboration to examine the initiatives of the Russian government aimed at stimulating the innovation activity of domestic corporations and small and medium enterprises. The data derived from the interviews with companies’ leaders show positive effects of bilateral innovative projects on the overall business performance alongside with major barriers hindering international cooperation. To overcome these barriers we provide specific suggestions relevant to the recently developed Russian Innovation Strategy 2020.
