The Higher School of Economics has offered its own concept for technopark creation in Archangelsk Region. Experts believe that the creation of a state-run technopark, which could have recourse to federal support, would have the greatest chances of success in the region. The more diverse the industry specialisation of the participants, the more interesting the projects that may be generated. What is more, believe the developers of the concept, the future technopark should have the Arctic as its main focal point. Deputy Minister for Economic Development of the Archangelsk Region Alexey BUSIN spoke with BC about development of the project.

Work should begin on creation of a technopark in Archangelsk Region without waiting for federal funds to arrive
This is the opinion of Ilya Akishin, project manager at IPAG NRU HSE.

Upon completion of the project, Ilya Akishin answered questions from the correspondent of the press office of the Archangelsk Region Development Corporation.
“A lack of regulation in public procurement and a lack of consistency in application of legislative norms on the contract system make the public procurement process opaque”, is the finding of a report by the Russian Finance Ministry on the key aspects for enhancing effectiveness of budget resources in Russian constituent entities. Experts from the Regional Programmes Centre of IPAG NRU HSE have played an active role in studies, analysing the materials submitted by regional authorities on enhancing the effectiveness of public procurement and sending the corresponding section of the report to the Finance Ministry.
Andrey Klimenko appeared as an expert at two working sessions during the forum: in the discussion of “Legal basis and the practice of determining, planning and assessing results in public management” and the round table “Strategic planning as the basis for effective governance”.
