Abstract

Innovations, science and technology, and innovation policies represent the limited range of fields where, as believed by a majority of eminent contemporary economists and analysts, it can be possible and even reasonable for the government to interfere. The only arguable aspects are, in the main, the scale, forms and limits of government interference and the experts also discuss and explore the world's best practices and the principles underlying each specific policy . The necessity of government interference in order to promote innovations is pro-claimed (explicitly or implicitly) by two basic concepts of economic development – the neo-classical and evolution theories.

Keywords: Russian economy, innovation policy, R&D
