About the project
'Monitoring of Knowledge-Intensive Business Services (KIBS) in Russia' is the only research project in Russia devoted to the complex research of this sector and its key markets. The project started in 2006 by the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge under the supervision of M. Doroshenko. Since 2016, the head of the project is V. Belousova.
Since the start of the Monitoring, the original methodology and appropriate tools for conducting qualitative and quantitative research of KIBS have been developing and updating. The empirical base is collected on the basis of continuity and international comparability. Mass surveys of KIBS producers and users were conducted in 2007-2013, 2015 and in 2007, 2010, 2011, 2013 respectively. In addition, in 2007 and 2013 organizations that use the procedure of the government procurement of KIBS were surveyed.
The main stages of the project are as the following:
In 2006, the project 'Monitoring of KIBS in Russia' started
In 2007, the first set of mass surveys were carried out
In 2009-2010, the main research focus of the project shifted to the exploration of the effects caused on KIBS by the economic crisis
In 2011, the new part of the monitoring devoted to the problems of spatial distribution of KIBS started
In 2013-2014, the research of factors contributed to the success of KIBS producers' client strategies contributed to the development of the theoretical model of perception asymmetry between KIBS producers and users
In 2015, a special attention was drawn to the research of 2014–2015 crisis, making a comparison with the previous crisis of 2007–2009 and identification of the most optimal ways for the development of KIBS in the post-crisis period.
In 2016, analytical tools was updated based on the recent findings in KIBS as well as innovation studies. The research focus shifted to the research of the most dynamic KIBS segments (IT, engineering, financial intermediation).
In 2017, the Monitoring was carried out within the framework of the project 'Development of theoretical and methodological approaches to studying activities of innovation process participants'. New methodological approaches to the analysis of the demand for KIBS during innovative projects were implemented. In addition the introduction of new methods of data analysis helped to improve the existing dataset.
In 2018 the Monitoring was carried out within the framework of the project 'Study of the activity of innovation process actors: development of the theoretical framework and methodological approaches'. The structure and dynamics of employment in the Knowledge-Intensive Business Services (KIBS), shifts in the gender composition of workers, their sectoral and occupational distribution using international statistical sources were studied.
In 2019 the Monitoring included the survey of KIBS companies aiming at exploring the features of technological and organisational innovations of such companies and the assessment of the impact caused by modern information technologies of their business processes.
