Besides panel discussions and round-table conferences, presentations will make an important part of the Gaidar Forum 2017. Books by foreign scientists, various reports and ratings will be presented in the three days of the Forum.

In particular, the two ratings prepared by the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, which co-arranged the Forum this year, will be presented as part of the Conference. Innovative Business in Russia’s Regions and Rating of Innovation Development of the Regions of Russia are two different studies for planning and regional development.

The ratings of conditions and results of development of high-technology businesses show, in which Russian regions it is profitable to run an innovative business, and reflect the actual situation following the innovative activities in the RF constituents. The ratings are based not on expert assessments, but on quantitative indicators, which makes them objective and well-founded. The studies involve evaluation of regions by individual components of the condition block and result block. This makes it possible to identify leaders in each component, to show strengths and weaknesses in the development of each region.
