Thirty Years of Innovation Policy in Russia: Lessons and Prospects in Relation to Creating Tech Champions
Now, high-tech companies in the SME segment can receive preferential loans, this is a huge help. But post-SME companies can receive grants for further growth. They need to become suppliers for large businesses. A reorientation is happening now. There are technological company maps that can make it easy to see which stage in the company’s development is not complete. If the company is not far behind its foreign competitor, we can help it grow. The consolidated demand of the players can provide us with this seamlessness. Do we need supra-ministerial support? It would be significant for high-tech companies, so that they do not fall into interdepartmental wells. Such support would be very needed

Thirty Years of Innovation Policy in Russia: Lessons and Prospects in Relation to Creating Tech Champions
In my opinion, neither the Chinese nor the US experience can be applied to Russia. Seventy percent of innovations in Russia are introduced at the expense of the state. The state is the actual actor in innovation policy. The state acts both as an investor and as a regulator. We need to work on this. We need a seamless bond between the idea and the supplier. Now we see that huge incentives are created for small businesses; small businesses are growing well. What happens next? Companies grow out of SMEs, they grow out of the support that small and medium businesses can count on. And then, when they need a boost, they need to build their own technological process, they lose their preferences. And companies start either splitting up their business or refusing orders

International Business and Global Values: Risks and Opportunities for Creative Industries in the Next Stage of Development
The UN named 2021 the Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. Since we find ourselves at an economic forum, let me give you some statistics. This segment is rapidly growing. It gains 15% annually, while as of now its total global capitalization exceeds USD 2 trillion. Naturally, creative industries are bigger than just film industry, music, and theatre, as people normally think. They cover all digital formats, such as design, media, advertising, and all social platforms. Actually, COVID had a fairly positive impact on digital solutions. This segment is showing even greater growth rates. However, it is clear that its influence on people’s mindsets, tempers, and behaviours is proportionate to the economic growth

We are already working on this. At a more systematic level, with the support and on the initiative of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Roscongress and Innopraktika, an expert group was created that brings together all those decisions and initiatives taken at different levels at different platforms, and based on this incoming flow of information, we can generate an overall picture of the situation. Now we have a more extensive vision of our education and training system

How to Cheat Time: New Approaches in Preventive and Anti-ageing Medicine
Russia has the objective of reaching 80+, so we want to join the longevity club that will help people in Russia reach 80 and more. Moreover, this objective enjoys financial support: the healthcare project in Russia has 1.7 billion roubles of expenditures. Today’s life expectancy in Russia is 73 years – it has room for improvement. Its growth was predominantly driven by lower death rate, but now we are reaching life expectancy increase. We can basically say that by the end of 2020s we will join the 80+ longevity club

Innovative Science and Technology Centres: What Should They Look Like?
ISTCs need to have four things: investors, innovators, industry, and researchers. If you have all of these components, they cross pollinate and you see a growing, synergetic effect
