In April 2021, the Russian Science Foundation announced that they were accepting entries for a number of new contests created during the optimization of development institutions. Over RUB 3 billion has been set aside in the Foundation's 2022 budget for the implementation of these projects. Grants will be awarded to basic and exploratory scientific research projects and contests to engage and harness the regions’ scientific potential. The new line of grants will address two objectives: (1) creating and developing new topics for research teams and forming those teams; and (2) supporting topics related to regional socioeconomic development. What are the specifics of these new contests? How will the basic and exploratory research topics be determined? How will the turn towards solving regional issues occur? Can joint efforts towards a common agenda help identify the basic scientific objectives that will prove useful for the country and its regions over the next 5 to 10 years? What demands do businesses have for researchers? What should a young scientist do to appeal to companies in the high-tech economic sector? What research must be done and how must its results be presented to find industrial partners for projects?
