New publication

IIMS Leading Research Fellow Ksenia Gonchar contributed a chapter titled «Lessons for a Policy Maker from Real-Life Self-Discovery in Economies with Weak Institutions» to a new book by Elsevier Academic Press «Advances in the Theory and Practice of Smart Specialization». 

The chapter was co-authored with Evgeny Kuznetsov and Imogen Wade, and was prepared within the framework of the HSE Basic Research Program-2016 in cooperation with a team of European researchers led by Slavo Radosevic.

Regional growth in the European Union hinges to a large extent on smart specialization, a new and exciting theme in economic innovation studies. Advances in the Theory and Practice of Smart Specialization illuminates problems that have stifled the implementation of smart specialization policies, such as unique regional constraints and the inter-dependent demands of economic growth and commercial development. Forward-looking and pragmatic, it provides guidance for developing smart specialization strategies both to those involved in European affairs and others grappling with regional innovation and economic development worldwide.
