The economic growth and innovativeness are strongly dependent on national culture and education levels. As education is recognized as an important factor for increasing the innovativeness of university, investments in intellectual capital are essential. Education level plays a significant role and the links between industry and universities (I2U and U2I) and universities (U2U), allow scientists to move between academia and companies more easily. Effective cooperation with universities and companies, application of innovative methods and teaching styles based on contemporary information technologies provide students with the opportunity to be better prepared to step confidently into their future career in science or business.
The article is devoted to the basic problems of the development of innovative and effective use of human capital in Russian enterprises. This work highlights such problems as inadequate system of professional training, the difficulty of getting the necessary skills and knowledge that young specialists face in the period of their study, non-optimal conditions of the organizational environment. The author offers several ways of solution at the macro and micro level: improving the contract system; creating the additional tax and other incentives for hiring young professionals and staff development; improving information links between employers, educational institutions and directly to students; the development of organizational culture in enterprises.

In a series of landmark rulings on the Services Directive, the Court of Justice of the EU has established that Member Countries may not restrict for-profit franchised or validated study programs being offered on their territory by higher education institutions from other Member countries. This article summarizes the results of a 2012 research project funded by the European Commission (Brandenburg et al. Delivering education across borders in the European Union. European Union, 2013). This research has mapped the cross-border delivery of higher education services within the then-27 EU Member States (being offered by both EU and non-EU based institutions) and provided an analysis of the regulatory frameworks regarding cross-border higher education activities at the Member State level.
The article deals with fertility in the Republic of Dagestan, which markedly differs from the Russian average in fertility timing: the mean age of mother at the first childbirth in Dagestan is not rising and remains at a relatively low level. And there are significant differences between the ethnic groups in the republic that from the point of the demographic theory seems quite unexpected against the background of the ongoing modernization changes in the republic. Based on the analysis of the data from the AllRussian population census — 2010 and from the survey conducted by the authors in Dagestan, the article shows that the ethnic differences in the age of mothers at the first childbirth are remaining, even among women with high education level and younger age cohorts. Lack of neutralization of the ethnic differences by the character of childbearing in the educated groups of population is quite a rare phenomenon that needs a special explanation. Its possible social and cultural origins are the subject of discussion.

Providing a range of research-based insights from case studies in key countries, this resource offers higher education scholars and administrators a comparative perspective, helping to explain the impact that international faculty have on the local university, as well as issues of retention, promotion, salaries, and the challenges faced by these internationally mobile academics.
