Domestic and foreign policies of leading countries reveal an ever more outstanding science and technology agenda. The participants of the XI International Academic Conference ‘Foresight and Science, Technology and Innovation Policy’, conducted on October 15–25, 2021, reviewed new aspects of doing joint R&D projects that the countries have considered and ways of securing competitive advantages of national science through strengthening ties with both businesses and authorities and engaging a wider audience.
Gadgets have been gaining strong, and different, influence over the daily tasks of Russians: on the one hand, they reinforce our connectedness to the world during the harshest lockdown, on the other — the contact between real individuals or even generations is getting weaker. Robots help automate routine tasks, as well as learn how to make rather autonomous decisions, and yet it is unclear, who should be responsible for those decisions. The XI International Academic Conference ‘Foresight and Science, Technology and Innovation Policy’, conducted online on October 15–25, 2021, started with a comprehensive analysis studying the social effects of digitalisation.

UNESCO has released its seventh official Science Report. The document is published every five years*. This Science Report’s title, ‘The Race Against Time for Smarter Development’, reflects the trajectory of global transformation stipulated by the United Nations in its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030, from ending poverty to protecting the planet’s natural resources. The authors of the Report describe how science contributes to these goals, analyze global scientific trends, and present 23 detailed regional and national cases. Below, IQ.HSE examines the objectives Russian science is pursuing in the context of the SDGs and what efforts it is taking to achieve them. This article is based on the Russian chapter of the Report prepared by Leonid Gokhberg, First Vice Rector, Director of the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge (ISSEK) of HSE University, and Tatiana Kuznetsova, Academic Supervisor of the Centre for Science, Technology, Innovation and Information Policy at ISSEK, HSE University.
