— The article discusses the first steps towards implementing the Development Program for the Novosibirsk Scientific Center of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences as a territory with a high concentration of research and development projects (megaproject Akademgorodok 2.0). The author analyzes the results of substantiating the prospects for developing the Novosibirsk Scientific Center in the area called the science polis zone of the Novosibirsk agglomeration. Approaches to constructing scenarios for developing this zone in the unity of socioeconomic, scientific, technological, infrastructural, and urban planning solutions are considered. The layouts of the future Akademgorodok 2.0 for the three considered scenarios are presented. The approaches to establishing the management system in the science polis zone are analyzed (including the one focusing on the Federal Law On innovative scientific and technological centers and on amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation). As an alternative management model, a proposal is formulated to organize the National Science and Technology Corporation for the Development of Siberia as a joint-stock company. It is not only to ensure the effective use of funds allocated for Akademgorodok 2.0 projects but also to address the issues of earning and reproducing the financial resources for these purposes. It is concluded that Akademgorodok 2.0 is among the successful experiences of setting up a regional scientific and innovation ecosystem in Russia. It is shown that integrating the regional strategic planning, territorial planning with modern urban planning solutions, and the planning and management of the scientific and technological development of the territory are fundamentally important for innovation ecosystem’s management system.
