Strategic Dialogue: Technological Development
The events taking place around the world right now have underscored just how important and acute it is for Russia to be competitive and independent in providing critical services for the public. The challenges and threats are largely systemic and multifaceted and are dictating new demands for the content and quality of planning the country’s science and technology policy. One of the most important needs is to develop an approach to systemic forecasting and to identify key factors that contribute to the development of new breakthrough technologies. How can we avoid miscalculations in an era when the situation is rapidly changing in Russia and around the world? What should be the key attributes of a scientific and technological forecasting system? What datasets, sources, and collection methods are crucial for forecasting?
