Until the end of the year, Russia will form a national rating of scientific and technological development of regions, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko said during a meeting of the commission on scientific and technological development. One of the meeting participants told RBC about this, the information was confirmed in Chernyshenko's office.

The Ministry of Education and Science is working on the rating methodology together with the commission of the State Council in the direction of “Science”, the Ministry of Economic Development, Rosstat, Rospatent and other interested departments. The methodology will be presented by mid-October.

According to the preliminary plan, the regions will be evaluated according to 54 indicators, divided into 7 blocks. Among them— blocks “Human resources”, “Financing of research and development”, “Material and technical base of science”, “Instruments of scientific, technical and innovation policy”, “Demand for the results of scientific research in the economy of the subject”, “Efficiency of scientific -technological activity» and «Innovation Activity».

The best regions will be determined based on the summation of the places of the subject for each of the indicators of all seven blocks, the level of potential and effectiveness of each of the regions will also be determined— high, medium or low. The criteria are also planned to include the presence in the subject of an approved regional program of scientific and technological development, a scientific and educational center, a world-class campus, the number of supported start-ups, including NTI projects, youth projects, and so on.

The purpose of creating the rating is to improve the research and development management system, as well as to increase the investment attractiveness of the scientific industry at the regional level, Chernyshenko said.

Vladimir Putin instructed to create a rating of scientific and technological development of regions in February. This task was included in the list of instructions following the joint meeting of the State Council and the Presidential Council for Science and Education.

At the forum “Technoprom-2022” in Novosibirsk last week, Chenyshenko proposed to the authorities of all regions to create “scientific special forces”— institute of deputies for scientific and technological development, who will manage sectoral competence centers in ministries. “This will happen now, inevitably, by order of the president in the federal executive bodies, and it will descend to the level of subjects and all organizations, as happened with digitalization,” — he said.

Among other ratings by which Russian regions are already being evaluated, there is a national investment climate rating compiled by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI). When creating it, 67 indicators in four areas are taken into account. The compilers of the rating evaluate the effectiveness of the provision of public services to business, the institutions created to support and protect it, the availability of infrastructure and other indicators. In June, the president congratulated the regions that had improved their positions in the ranking.

In April 2021, Vladimir Putin instructed the ASI, together with the State Council Commission on Public Administration, to also launch a rating of regions in terms of quality of life. Its first results were also presented at SPIEF.
