Vitaliy Roud

Deputy Head, Laboratory for Economics of Innovation, Associate Professor

National Research University Higher School of Economics

I have about 15 years of research, teaching and policy advice experience in the field of Science, Technology and Innovation Studies (STI), and skills in quantitative and qualitative research to address complex socio-economic phenomena using both traditional and novel data sources.

I am always open to discussing the complexity of STI and the comprehensive context of innovation and development.

My foci:

  • Business innovation studies — innovation strategies, organizational culture for innovation, open innovation, ecological innovation and transformative innovation.
  • Governance of innovation systems, technological upgrading and catch-up, transformative dynamics, path dependence and bounded change, efficiency of institutions and linkages; industry-science cooperation; patterns of innovation behavior, taxonomies of innovation; evidence for systemic and diagnosis-based innovation policy.
  • Measurement of innovation, innovation surveys, composite indexes and scoreboards. Micro, macro- and meso-level indicators to capture firm strategies, development, change, technological upgrading, dissemination of advanced production technologies and organizational practices, impact of R&D and research evaluation.
  • (Micro-)econometrics of innovation and technology, machine learning-enabled studies of innovation and digital trace of innovation.
