Measuring Science: a New Look from Vienna

Is big data going to replace conventional statistical observations of the science, technology, and innovation sphere? Participants of workshops hosted by the ISSEK and a number of partner research centres in Austria and Germany in Vienna on 6–7 March agreed that the role of statistics is only going to increase. The experts outlined the potential for cooperation in the scope of S&T research projects and educational programmes.

The World of Innovation: from Indicators to Policies

One of the round table discussions at the VII Open Innovation Forum (15-17 October, Skolkovo) focused on using various indices and rankings to adjust  goals and objectives, and assess effectiveness of innovation policies. HSE ISSEK members Vitaly Roud and Evgeny Kutsenko took part in the debates, speaking about applying the Global Innovation Index and the ISSEK-maintained Russian Regional Innovation Development Ranking in management practices on the regional and city levels.

The Transition to the New Indicators in Measuring Science, Technology, Innovation

Researchers at the ISSEK HSE Laboratory for Economics of Innovation Vitaliy Roud and Ekaterina Dyachenko share with some observations from fields of three science conference where were discussed current trends and new measurement tools of science, technology and innovation.

108 Tools for Measuring and Managing Innovation

'National Report on Innovation in Russia' is published, for the third year in a row prepared by the Russian Venture Company (RVC), the RF Ministry of Economic Development, and the RF Government’s Expert Council. Experts from the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge also contributed to producing the report. They suggested a number of advanced research methodologies and new indicators for measuring innovation development in the country. The indicator panel applied in the new report comprises 108 positions.

Advanced Model of State Statistics in the Digital Era

On April 10, Leonid Gokhberg, First Vice Rector of HSE and Director of the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge, presented a report — ‘Advanced Model of State Statistics in the Digital Era’ during panel session 'National System of Data Management: Interaction between Society, Business and State' at the XIX April International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development.

Vitaliy Roud: “Innovations Mean Multiple Communications. It Is a Difficult and Risky Strategy”

In the Bloomberg's ranking of the world's 50 most innovative countries, Russia is on the 26th place, and it lost ground heavily (by 14 points) in comparison with other countries. Vitaliy Roud (research fellow, Laboratory for Economics of Innovation, HSE ISSEK) commented the Bloomberg Innovation Index which includes a small proportion of indicators Global Innovation Index (GII) on RBC TV.

Cooperation Strategies of Enterprises: the Duration of Collaboration

Research fellows of the HSE ISSEK Laboratory for Economics of Innovation studied the duration of cooperation in innovation activities. The results are reported in HSE ISSEK information bulletin series “Science, Technology, Innovation”.
