KNOWLEDGE-BASED ECONOMY – A STRATEGY FOR GETTING AHEAD OF THE CURVE

16:00-17:15 Pavilion 3, Amphitheatre
Russia is weighing a strategy to develop a long-term economic model that shifts emphasis to value-added, knowledge based production, potentially changing the way the economy functions. Can Russia transform its economic model to support more innovation, knowledge-intensive production? How can the economy get there while avoiding major disruptions? What sectors stand to benefit most from such an approach?

Highlights

IT is everywhere today. It has become the same kind of platform for the modern economy as engineering was for the industrial economy.

Igor Agamirzyan
Chief Executive Officer, RVC

The most important factor for global integration in taking its proper place in the world economy is to be able to gather brains together, to accumulate intellect and to build up innovative potential… The winner is the one that can export brains rather than lose them; exporting brains by creating new products and know-how.

Oleg Goshchansky
Chairman, Managing Partner, KPMG in Russia and the CIS

A knowledge-based economy is not an abstract concept – it is concrete money. A knowledge-based economy is the catalyst for everything, not just the economy and the social sphere, but also for the life of society in general.

Abel Aganbegyan
Academician, Russian Academy of Sciences

Given that the main bearer of competence is a person with knowledge, abilities and skills, we consequently need a highly educated person focussed on achieving excellence in cutting edge developments. Creating the conditions for the developing such a person is the primary objective of the government and business.
