The Interstate Program on Innovative Cooperation among CIS Member States is being implemented in the post-Soviet space. Countries are training specialists in the professions of the future, introducing new educational and research technologies, creating intergovernmental networks of skills and the joint application of high-precision equipment, and contributing to building an economy in sync with the new wave of innovation. What are the opportunities for international cooperation within the framework of the digital agenda today? How is the labour market transforming in the realities specific to the CIS? What are the priorities for funding intergovernmental projects that aim to prepare for the economy of future? What role can industrial subcontracting, cooperation, and technology transfer play within the CIS? Is there a future for interstate high-tech clusters?
