Research collaboration with the EU
RESEARCH COLLABORATION IN THE SOCIAL AND HUMAN SCIENCES BETWEEN EUROPE, RUSSIA, THE CIS COUNTRIES AND CHINA – Global SSH (FP6 – EU 6th Framework Programme), 2006–2009
In March 2008, ISS RAS joined the international consortium of the EU project “Research Collaboration in the Social and Human Sciences between Europe, Russia, the CIS countries and China” (Global SSH). ISS RAS team leader in the project is Dr. Liudmila Pipiya, Deputy Director for Research.
GlobalSSH Action promotes international collaboration between Europe, Russia, other CIS countries and China. The project also identifies prerequisites for transnational research networks as well as common agendas for research in the future structuring of the enlarged European Research Area (ERA). Responding to current processes of socio-political transition and internationalisation, the project addresses the transformations of SSH research and its new role in the three regions. The project provides an opportunity to reflect on – and possibly re-think – key concepts in European research policy in the light of the internationalisation of the social sciences and humanities.
The project is implemented through conferences, workshops, and expert group discussions.

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMERCIALISATION (EU EuropeAid Programme), 2004–2006
The project was aimed at Russian innovation policy improvement recommendations. It also worked on creation of an innovation infrastructure (Commercialisation Centres). The consortium was headed by INNO Company (Germany). Other partners were Russian Academy of Sciences, AEA Technology (UK), TNO (The Netherlands).
The project’s results were summarised in a series of 5 books “Innovations and Technology Commercialisation in Russia and EU Countries: Experience, Problems, and Perspectives” edited by Vladimir Ivanov (Russia), Svetlana Klessova (France), Peter Lindholm (Germany), and Oleg Luksha (Russia). The series was published by CSDS RAS in 2006. The books are accessible in ISS RAS e-library.
MAPPING THE NANOTECHNOLOGY INNOVATION SYSTEM OF RUSSIA FOR PREPARING FUTURE COOPERATIONS BETWEEN THE EU AND RUSSIA – NANORUCER (FP7 – EU 7th Framework Programme), 2009–2011
The overall aim of the NANORUCER support activity is to pave the way for future cooperation between the EU and the Russian Federation in the field of nanotechnology and nanostructured materials as formulated in the description of the NMP work programme topic addressed. The following three objectives will deliver this overall aim: 1) mapping of nanotechnology and nanostructured materials activities in Russia; 2) assessing the capacities of Russian NN R&D activities in order to identify strengths and weaknesses; 3) identifying opportunities for cooperation and developing recommendations and a specific action plan. ISS RAS team leader in the project is Dr. Nadezhda Gaponenko, Head of Department.

Collaboration with the Millennium Project
During last years ISS RAS has established constructive contacts with the Millennium Project which is a member of the World Federation of UN Associations. Dr. Nadezhda Gaponenko, Head of the Department for Science, Innovation and Foresight, represents the Millennium Project in Russia.
The Millennium Project is a global participatory futures research think tank of futurists, scholars, business planners, and policy makers who work for international organizations, governments, corporations, NGOs, and universities. The purpose of the Millennium Project is to be an international utility to assist in organizing futures research by continuously updating and improving humanity's thinking about the future and making that thinking available for feedback as a geographically and institutionally dispersed think tank.
