Deputies of the Parliamentary Assembly, representatives of Standing Committee of the Union State, national parliaments, ministries, departments, scientific academies, scientific and educational organizations, as well as leading Russian and Belarus mass media, have discussed a broad spectrum of questions concerning the development of common information space of the Union State.

Sokolov M., Deev A. - Crowdsourcing as an instrument of modernization of public administration system in the Russian Federation pp. 45-54


Abstract: In the modern and rapidly developing world, under the conditions of advancement of the information and communication technologies (ICT), crowdsourcing gradually encompasses one sphere after another. Increasingly frequently, such instrument is applied not only in business and social projects, but also the public administration system. Thus, in terms of social and political transformations, crowdsourcing takes over a sizeable place among the well-known methods, technologies, and instruments of control, conducing the integration of efforts of the state, business, and society in resolving the socioeconomic issues, which defines the reasonableness of examining the possibilities and forms of development of the aforementioned technology in the work of government bodies of all levels. Methodological foundation of this research leans on the analysis of the Russian practice of realization of the crowdsourcing projects, which allowed identifying the critical spots in theory and practice of their implementation into the system of public administration. Relevance of the topic at hand is substantiated by the insufficient methodological elaboration regarding the introduction of crowdsourcing into the work of government bodies on the background of rapid development of ICT and growing number of the Russian crowdsourcing projects, which possess great potential for development of the system of relations between society, business, and government agencies.

Sokolov M., Abramov R. - Institutional Aspects in Transnational Integration of the Union State Members in the Innovation Sphere pp. 113-127


Abstract: CIS countries typically demonstrate a rather low level of R&D/GDP intensity and low share of expenditures for science, low development of hightech economic sector and negative saldo of the trade balance in relation to innovative products. At the same time, problems of transnational integration in the sphere of innovation within the Union State started to attract interest of researchers at the turn of the 2011 - 2012. One of research aspects is the need to develop efficient instruments that would ensure efficient transnational integration of Russia and Belarus in the innovation sphere. The object of the present research is the integration of Russia and Belarus within the Union State. The subject of the research is the combination of institutions that provide for the integration of the Union States in the innovation sphere. The authors of the article pay special attention to institutional issues and integration prospects of the Union State members in the innovation sphere including the need to develop a single strategy that would guarantee productivity and efficiency of all institutions under research. The methodological basis of the research involves analysis of fundamental researches and modern theoretical researches in the sphere of institution development, innovation activity and transnational integration including that within the Union State. Based on the analysis carried out, the authors have defined the key problems and development prospects for Russia's and Belarus' institutions that ensure the development of integration processes in the innovation sphere. In conclusion, the authors agree with experts and researchers, both Russian and Belorussian, and come to the conclusion that despite numerous institutional and political issues, the authorities, business entities and social communities of the Union State members understand the need to activate the innovation cooperation. In 2012 during the Union State Programs Forum held in Minsk it was underlined that innovation activity is the guarantee of stability both of an individual entity and state in general, that being true for the Union State, too. Thus, it is important to develop transnational information research data base of fundamental and applied problems that would ensure active information exchange between specialists from different countries and strengthen legal basis in the sphere of protection of rights to intellectual activity products as well as to activate process of creating and developing regional and national innovation networks. Implementation of the above described transformations will require to create new institutions as well as to develop institutions that already exist in the innovation sphere which makes the rationale of the present research.
