NOVOSIBIRSK, August 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has proposed to include businessmen in the management of higher educational establishments. He made the proposal at a meeting of the Open Government on the promotion of business at institutes and universities on Tuesday.
“Speaking of innovative management, we may enhance the favorable influence of businessmen in the management of higher educational establishment,” Medvedev said.
“Some say that business should not have an access to education management, but I think that the symbiosis of business and the academic community is necessary not only for commercializing research and development but also for improving management,” he said.
He suggested electing businessmen to academic, trustee and supervisory councils. “That won’t require legislative acts. Just a decision,” he said.
Medvedev also proposed to discuss the attraction of investments in research and development. “A shortage of investments is a key problem. We need venture investments and money from state funds,” he said.
“We should also analyze IPO options of new innovative companies at special international exchange floors. That may be a way out,” Medvedev said.
He promised the experts to continue the formation of a favorable regime for innovative companies, such as better customs and tax regulation and copyright protection.
“In this country the founders – higher educational establishments – hold the rights to intellectual products of innovative plants, while foreign universities transfer such rights (patents) to the developers. We may issue Russian innovators with an exclusive license to the result of their intellectual work,” Medvedev said.
