Budgetary Mechanisms for Implementing the Priorities of Scientific and Technological Development of the Russian Federation

Soldatova S.E., Maslennikova E.V., Grachev A.I.


The need to determine the priorities of the scientific and technological development of the country and the effective financing of research and development dictates the application in practice of the ideas of the scientific budget. Based on the conducted research, the authors proposed the principles of the scientific budget, of which the most significant are: the priority of financing the most significant areas of research and development; ensuring a single targeted approach to managing the costs of R&D at all stages of the life cycle of scientific research and experimental development. The procedure for developing a scientific budget, from the point of view of the authors, consists of a number of stages. In particular, it is envisaged to assign additional functionality to the Unified State Accounting Information System of R&D related to the evaluation and selection of scientific topics (R&D projects), as well as determining the amount of funding for work from the federal budget. The algorithm for implementing the additional functionality of the system includes a procedure for determining the compliance of the R&D project with the priorities of scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation, evaluating the scientific and scientific and technical results of the project according to the criteria of the technology readiness level, as well as conducting a comparative analysis of the project under consideration with the average indicators of a sample of analog projects generated in the system automatically. The application of a methodological approach to assessing the effectiveness of the tools of the state program “Scientific and Technological Development of the Russian Federation” in the formation of the scientific budget allows us to draw conclusions about the need to optimize, expand or reduce the list of program tools. Evaluation of the effectiveness of the program tools is carried out according to the criteria: 1) necessity; 2) sufficiency; 3) the degree of contribution to the achievement of the goal.

Image of the USSR: The Results of Contemporary Education

Shults E.E.


Changes in the ideas of Russian society about the USSR are of significant interest. These changes are due to transformations of the external and internal environment, changes in the educational and media environment. The problem of the formation of modern images of the USSR in Russian society acquires high relevance in the context of the so-called “wars of memory”. Shifts in favor of a positive assessment of the Soviet period and a negative about the collapse of the country are obvious in Russian society. Moreover, this approach is also characteristic of the youngest age groups, despite differences in ideas with older generations.

The Problem of the «Sovereign Internet» in Russia

Stepanov S.A., Ivanova E.A.


The article is devoted to the problem of sovereignty of the Russian segment of the global Internet. The hypothesis of the study is that the Russian government intends to take control of the dissemination of information via the Internet, but this intention runs counter to the economic interests and objectives of the modernization of the country based on modern technologies. In this regard, the actions of the Russian authorities in this area are contradictory and half-hearted. Attempts to control the information space, social networks and video blogs are increasingly on the agenda in many states. At the dawn of its existence, the Russian segment of the Internet was practically free from censorship and from any interference from the state in general. Each user was free to express his personal opinion without fear of censorship. It should be recognized that complete freedom has not always been for the good. There were websites on the Runet that freely spread neo-Nazi, chauvinistic, xenophobic views. As the confl with the West deepened, the idea of protecting the Runet from hostile ideological infl following the example of China, was increasingly discussed in Russian government circles. Currently, the Runet, despite increased censorship, is still an integral part of the Internet. The fi part of the article is devoted to the analysis and comparison of the degree of control of social networks in diff countries and come to logical conclusions.

Toward an Integrated Model for Public Technology Policy Analysis - a Taxonomy Useful for Determining Scope and Type of Analysis

Njalsson G.K.


How might the analysis of public technology policy be further systematised and made more objective so that important factors such as conscious subjects, interests, infl and prioritisation could better be taken into account by policy analysts and decision-makers? An integrated model designed to guide and structure the analysis process might comprise a solution to this problem. An adequately sophisticated yet concise and systematic framework of this sort would necessarily take into account the referential point of departure and alternative types of policy analysis as well as the nature, interests and priorities of those entities actually shaping public technology policy. The segment of the proposed integrated model and which is concerned with built-in assumptions about the nature of technological development has been covered in a previous article [1]. The purpose of the current article is to develop and present one further part or segment of an integrated model for public technology policy analysis (IMTPA) and to demonstrate its methodological and analytical utility with central policy analysis documents from Canada during the period 1990-2005. This article shall limit itself to a part of the IMTPA concerned with the type and scope of public technology policy analysis to be undertaken - a methodology which might better guide and make more transparent both the policies being examined as well as the policy analysis process itself.
