Social and Cultural Factors in the Innovative Development of Russian Regions
Technology policy has been implemented in Russia for a long period of time, but it has rarely taken into account peculiarities of the social base. In 2016, MER initiated a large-scale case study of innovative behavior and the attitude towards technological innovations in the population of different regions of Russia. The results of this study will be presented for the first time at the Gaidar Forum.
Issues for Discussion
- Is the Russian Federation “techno-optimisitic or techno-pessimistic”?
- What is the actual level of support for innovation policy on the part of the population in Russia?
- How does socio-cultural specificity determine the differences in the innovative development of regions?
