First decade of innovation policy in Russia: failures and successes

ATRIUM STAGE, October 16 10:00 — 11:00

Modern Russia actually had to build a system of innovation support from scratch in a market economy. The “first generation” of development institutions - RUSNANO, RVK, Skolkovo, the Bortnik Foundation - became the basic element of the new infrastructure aimed at supporting high-tech projects. The experience of these organizations was taken into account when creating the “second wave” of development institutions - IIDF, ASI, etc.
Today, the state-owned ecosystem of technological development has an ambitious task - to dramatically increase the share of industrial enterprises that innovate.

It is interesting to know the opinion of representatives of different generations of Russian innovators on the following issues:

  • How effective was the Russian innovation support system and how did it evolve?
  • What will be the new generation of innovators?
  • What should be the optimal innovation infrastructure of the "third generation"?
  • Where are the new growth points - in digital and material based industries?
  • Foreign experience in the development of the innovation environment: what was in demand, and what is not applicable?
  • The huge scientific potential of Russia is a myth or do we just not know how to commercialize innovative developments?
  • Is innovation breakthrough possible in Russia?
