Bridging the Innovation Gap in Russia

Опубликовано на портале: 23-01-2003
Europe: OECD, 1998
This publication contains a summary report of the presentations and discussions held at the Seminar. It has been prepared by the Rapporteurs, Jack Martens, a consultant based in the United States, and Alexander Dynkin, Deputy Director of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO) in Moscow. It also includes a background document prepared by the Russian Ministry of Industry, Science and Technologies on the role of the state in creating a favourable environment for innovation. The reports show that, in spite of considerable achievements in the recent past in building the groundwork for Russias innovation system, the innovation climate still needs drastic improvements. Comprehensive institutional reforms are required, including in areas outside the remit of policy makers in technology and innovation. A lot can be learned, in that respect, from the experience of other countries.
