Medvedev Rewards Strategy 2020 Experts

In January 2011, following a decree from Vladimir Putin, expert groups for preparing recommendations on topical issues for Russian socio-economic strategy up to 2020 were created. These groups have brought together over 1000 experts, and in addition to this, another 400 experts from Russian regions are participating in this work. Such a scale of expert participation in a governmental programme is unprecedented in global economic policy.  All the leading Russian experts declined to accept remuneration for their participation in this work, regarding it as their civil duty.

In recognition of this work, The Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, has awarded honours to some researchers from the Higher School of Economics for their work on these expert groups, including organization of the groups, the preparation of suggestions on topical issues for Russian socio-economic strategy up to 2020 and their personal input into the expert and analytical work:
