The article analyzes the influence of international projects in the development of such knowledge-intensive industries as space and nuclear energy on the Indian economy and its position in international relations. India has intensive cooperation with Russia in space projects. The article studies the stages of development of Russian-Indian cooperation in space and the most important projects (the development of navigation technologies, the creation of a radio telescope, the study of solar activity). The author studies Russian-Indian cooperation in the nuclear energy development, distinguishing two interconnected aspects: from one side - Russia’s support of the Indian nuclear programs, from another side - Russian participation in the real projects of the building of nuclear power plants in India. It is mentioned that the partnership has the suitable legal base, long history, strategic character and is addressed to the development of the knowledge-intensive industries, contributing to economic growth. It is the reason why the perspectives of russian-indian projects can be appreciated as as favorable for both countries.
