The project 'Monitoring of Knowledge-Intensive Business Services (KIBS) in Russia' is conducted by the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge on a regular basis since 2006. The longitudinal design of the project allowed to collect a unique database that has no analogues in Russia. The database of the project includes the results of qualitative research in the format of in-depth expert interviews, as well as a base of quantitative data obtained through mass surveys of Russian KIBS producers and users.
The current research under the project includes the following areas:
|Further expansion of project database, including the collection of statistical data from open sources|
|Development of new methodological approaches to the exploration of KIBS producers and their role in the innovation process|
Improvement of statistical indicators for better understanding of KIBS features
|Analysis of current trends in the most dynamic KIBS segments (IT, engineering and financial intermediation)|
