Economic Growth Through the Prism of Patent Activity

  • S. A. NekrasovEmail author


Analysis of the dynamics of the number of patent applications allows us to identify the most general patterns of economic transformation. By creating varying conditions for research in different technological areas, it is possible to adjust the vector of social growth. The article shows that both before the emergence of the term “digital economy” and now, concentrating efforts of national investment systems in the field of computer technology is a necessary condition for ensuring technological sovereignty and achieving leading positions in the global economy in the foreseeable future and in the long run.



The work was based on the results of a study supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (project no. 17-06-00304 “Determining the vector of the scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation based on the new econometric toolkit.”
