To manage complex processes like the digitalization of the economy, a special kind of organization is required. One method is to form consortia made up of suppliers of technological solutions, consumers of these solutions, and a state regulator. A key task of these project-oriented consortia is to reduce the current lag between research and development, incorporating technological innovations into finished products, and launching products globally. What potential is there for setting up strategic consortia in Russia today? How can they be integrated into international research networks, international digital economy regulatory systems, and the Internet? How can we balance the participation of business and the state in shaping the priorities of investment policy in the technological sector?
