Abstract

This article discusses the challenges arising from international R&D projects in Russia. Specific problems are identified and discussed, namely: integration management; geographic factors; international networks; and virtual innovation teams. Meanwhile, market and customer perspectives, and knowledge and technology transfer, as well as the challenges arising from transnational processes and ICT are also going to be considered. Furthermore, inter-firm R&D partnerships are reviewed, with potential solutions suggested and general guidelines for Russian enterprises examined. In addition, cultural and historical aspects, as well as economic and political constraints, are taken into account. Ultimately, it could be concluded that even relatively small Russian enterprises should be able to benefit from the proposed solutions due to networking effects. This should have a positive impact on the Russian economy and contribute towards a significant reduction in its dependence on natural resources.
