“Knowledge Economy” in Russia: Skolkovo Case

“Knowledge Economy” in Russia: Skolkovo Case

Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 10 (no. 1),

The article analyzes the experience of Skolkovo in the scope of the knowledge economy using an interdisciplinary research method. The Skolkovo project was planned as a driver for overcoming the Dutch disease. The Skolkovo experience combines positive and negative aspects, but it showed that public-private partnership in the field of science and education should be continued. Russian business and state corporations do not finance R & D, and as a result, the problem of financing is decided primarily by the state. It is necessary to create institutional conditions that unite universities, science cities and business, this will allow scientists to have a correct understanding of the problems facing the industry. Other major problems are the low level of qualification of the Power and Rule in the Russian Society, and also the fragmentation of the scientific community, which is not able to protect its interests. It is necessary to increase the requirements for the level of education and the quality of management training, as well as create conditions for improving their skills in Russia. The positive trends in the emergence of young governor-technocrats should be continued. It is also necessary to reform the institutes of patent law and certification for legal support of innovations created in Russia.
