About the Project
The project “Monitoring Survey of Innovative Behavior of the Population” is implemented within the Basic Research Program at the National Research University Higher School of Economics. The aim of this survey is the analysis of data related to the public perception of science, technology and innovation, distribution of innovative practices in the households, skills for innovation, attitudes and other factors of innovative behavior of the Russian population. This survey is the only information source for international comparisons with the use of data issued by the OECD, European Commission (Eurobarometer and Innobarometer) and US National Science Foundation.
The monitoring started in 2009 as a three-year cycle and covers a broad range of indicators. Therefore a series of core questions were repeated cyclically. However, each year survey had its own specific topic as follows:
2018-2019 – Public engagement in science, technology, and innovation
2016-2017 – Social demand for new and emerging technologies
2015 – Public attitudes to science and technology
2014 – Understanding innovations
2013 – Innovative practices in Russian households
2012 – Dynamics of public perception of innovations
2011 – Skills for innovative activities
2010 – Discovering key innovative practices in Russian households
2009 – Public perception of innovations and distribution of innovative practices in Russian households
Empirical base of the Research includes the data set containing the results of a standard representative survey of the Russian population, conducted yearly since 2009. Sample for each year includes no less than 1500 people aged 16+.
The indicators calculated with the use of the survey data published in statistical data books and analytical reports of international organisations. The latest results of the conducted surveys are presented in a series of academic papers:
