Financing of innovative projects in industry

Galachieva S.V.


A distinctive feature of innovation-oriented enterprises is a higher demand for external sources of financing, while innovative activities are characterized by a sufficiently high degree of uncertainty and risk, therefore, the important principles of financing innovative projects are the multiplicity of financing sources, flexibility and adaptability to a rapidly changing external environment. Using in-house funds in the development and implementation of an innovative project provides maximum scale of actions in making management decisions. At the same time, international experience in the innovative projects implementation proves the effectiveness of debt and equity instruments use for project financing. The article discusses the main instruments for financing innovative projects in the Russian Federation, highlights the main stages of finding and attracting financial resources. In addition, within the framework of this study, the costs of technological innovations and the sources of their financing, the patent activity of enterprises in the Russian Federation were analyzed. The main economic reasons that impede the development of innovations project management are listed. The necessity of developing measures to expand the access of innovative enterprises to loaned sources of financing has been substantiated.

Element composition of the innovation potential of industrial enterprises

Goman K.I.


At the present stage of the development of innovative activity of industrial enterprises, it is necessary to implement measures, the implementation of which is, first of all, the creation of an innovative reserve characterized by innovative potential. The approaches presented by the author to the structure of the elements of the innovation potential, firstly, allow us to identify the missing elements in its composition, secondly, to determine the level of development of these elements, and thirdly, to formulate proposals to eliminate the shortcomings. Currently, the state has initiated a number of federal programs that are aimed at forming and supporting the development of innovative potential both at the level of enterprises, regions, and the state as a whole. The key direction that determines the possibility of achieving the goals in these sectors is the development of personnel component of the innovative potential of domestic enterprises. The analysis of the conditions for the formation of the innovative potential of domestic industrial enterprises allows us to judge the unsatisfactory form of its innovative development, in which there is a significant gap between the requirements of innovative activity, as well as the requirements of the external and internal environment, the ability to adequately respond to the factors of influence. In this regard, in order to develop the innovation potential, the author proposes the structure of its elements and the analysis of the factors influencing the innovation activity of industrial enterprises, as well as bringing it into a balanced state of its external and internal environment. As the main tool for the development of innovative potential and bringing it into a balanced state, organizational and managerial factors are used to increase the efficiency of innovation activities and ensure the activation of the innovative potential of industrial enterprises.

Managing the digital transformation of the industrial sector

Zhityaeva O.I.


The article examines the issues of managing the digital transformation of the Russian industrial sector. The author notes that a new content of the industrial development strategy is currently on the agenda – a digital strategy, for the development of which there are a number of prerequisites: the availability of the Internet, the use of digital services, mobile devices, and other digital technologies. The article deals with the issues of digital transformation management and the directions of its development. The author reveals the advantages of implementing digital transformation, suggests directions for implementing the roadmap for digital transformation of the industrial sector, and identifies trends in the digital transformation of the industrial sector. It is noted that digital transformation begins with the creation of a digital platform where the interests of industry, the state and science are united. Digital platforms are proposed to be organized by type of economic activity (FEA), using digital ecosystems. Digital platforms are proposed to be created in the areas of digital transformation, such as: uber-ization, the Internet of things, neural technologies, Big Data, network interaction with partners, blockchain, crowdfunding. The article reflects that one of the types of digitalization is uber-the transformation of the economy, which represents a digital service for the provision of services, the rejection of hierarchical multi-level organizational structures, to production and management structures based on the blockchain. Uber-ization of the economy is a digital management service that includes a whole range of other digital services. In this article, the author proposes a model of digital transformation of the industrial sector of the Russian Federation based on the creation of «digital doubles» that allow using such advantages as reducing the time of business processes, increasing the accuracy of calculations, and improving the quality of work performed. Digital transformation forms new forms of organizational, innovation and management activities, takes a leading position in the development of domestic industrial potential, new competitive advantages by improving business processes for knowledge and information management, increasing the number of technological innovations, and filling them with professional competencies.

Rates regulation of the sphere of solid municipal waste management

Kuznetsova O.V.


In Russia, the problem of garbage is very acute, but only in recent years attempts have been made to solve it. One of the directions is the systematization of the industry and the transfer of responsibility for the removal, sorting and disposal of garbage to regional operators. The compensation mechanism for the costs of such companies involves the establishment of a tariff for municipal services for the treatment of MSW. Setting a tariff that would cover all the costs of regional operators and at the same time be accessible to the public is not an easy task, especially since it should also provide for investment costs for the development of the industry. One of the ways to reduce the tariff is digitalization. The experience of using modern digital solutions shows that they can not only improve the quality of services provided, but also reduce costs, which will have a positive impact on the amount of the tariff for municipal services for the treatment of MSW. The article deals with the problems of tariff regulation of the sphere of solid municipal waste management, for which the method of tariff formation is given, the factors that determine the amount of payment for utility services for solid municipal waste management, as well as the problems of the industry that affect the tariff. The problem of garbage is the most urgent, and the issue of competent financing, including through the establishment of a tariff, will help to overcome the main barriers to its solution.

Cluster entity development challenges and possible solutions

Makarenya T.A.


For the modern economy of Russia, the problem of the development of the country's industrial complex is acute. An analysis of industrial development trends shows that despite the implementation of import substitution programs, industry has not become the dominant sector in the country's GDP structure, development trends are slowing down, new innovative enterprises and jobs appear in a single quantity. The country's industry is characterized by new institutional formations – clusters. Cluster entities can be innovative-territorial, industrial and other. Cluster education is an association of industrial enterprises, scientific and educational structures, as well as other actors whose results participate in the formation of the finished product. Thus, the study of the problems of the development of cluster formations is one of the important tasks in determining the weaknesses, strengths, and directions for the development of the country's industry.

Main aspects of interaction of government and the entrepreneurial sector in project management

Sedykh I.O., Yashin S.N., Lapshina E.N.


The interaction of state and entrepreneurs in a modern economy is a necessary measure for the effective implementation of the activities of both parties. This article explores some of the mechanisms of interaction between government bodies and the business sector of the economy in terms of project activities and project management. Public-private partnership issues are increasingly being discussed in the world political arena as an effective mechanism for interaction between the state and business. The need for effective communications in the chain «power-business-society» is emphasized by many authors. Communication between the public and commercial sectors is a process that reflects the levers and methods they use to mutually influence and promote their interests. The partnership between government, business and society is closely correlated with the successful functioning of the commercial sector and public administration, which is expressed in the successful establishment of the processes of socio-economic development of the state. The successful functioning of public-private partnership is one of the indicators of the correct implementation of the mechanism for supporting entrepreneurship by public authorities, and also reflects the level of development of the state in general and its subjects, in particular. The development of public-private partnerships plays an important role in building a long-term development strategy for the regions of the Russian Federation.

Kliment’yeva S.V., Ilina A.M.


The basis of world socio-economic development in recent years is information and communication technologies (ICT), which continue to rapidly develop and create new products and services. On their basis, innovative development takes place, there is an increase in the productivity and efficiency of organizations. Digitalization is becoming a necessary and leading component of maintaining and increasing the competitiveness of states and individual territorial entities, the most important prerequisite for improving the standard of living of the population. The development of digital technologies and their successful implementation are facilitated by the adopted state programs, such as the national program «Digital Economy of the Russian Federation». The authors determined that the population of the Russian Federation and the Samara region is increasingly mastering digital competencies, using advanced digital technologies, and using services provided by state and municipal organizations. Regional authorities, acting within the framework of the national program «Digital Economy of the Russian Federation», develop local programs in accordance with the tasks to be solved on the basis of the previously achieved economic state. At the same time, the Samara Region is a dynamically developing territory that has good prerequisites for the active and multidimensional implementation of ICT achievements in the economic life of the region, and its authorities are consistently introducing digital technologies into the regional economy. Nevertheless, in the region there are problems with the staffing of this process, the population is not fully covered by the opportunity to access the Internet and receive a number of state and municipal services using specialized digital services. In these conditions, in the Samara Region, it is necessary to make greater use of the mechanisms of public-private partnership in the implementation of projects for the digitalization of the economy, to increase the innovative component of the development of enterprises in the region, to expand and improve the opportunities for the population to acquire digital competencies.

Equations of nonlinear dynamics of development of industrial enterprises, taking into account the amount of its maximum profit

Saraev A.L., Saraev L.A.


In the published article, new modifications of economic and mathematical models of the dynamic development of enterprises are proposed, the production of which is being restored due to the introduction of their own investments. The developed models are presented in the form of systems of differential equations for an arbitrary number of production factors. Stationary solutions of these systems of equations correspond to the equilibrium states of the operation of enterprises and represent the limiting values of the factors of production. Two versions of systems of differential balance equations for enterprises, describing the growth of factors of production and output, have been established. In the first case, the growth of resources and output is limited by the limiting values of the factors of production. In the second case, the growth of resources and output is limited by the pre-calculated values of the factors of production that correspond to the value of the maximum profit of the enterprise. It is shown that the growth of production factors of the enterprise should not exceed the values corresponding to the value of the maximum profit. Otherwise, the company starts to operate at a loss. In the presented models, proportional, progressive and digressive depreciation deductions are considered. The constructed models make it possible to describe various modes of operation of enterprises. Such regimes include a stable output of products by enterprises, a temporary suspension of the work of enterprises during its technical re-equipment, and a temporary partial curtailment of production.

Simulation modeling of the dynamics of competitive interaction between manufacturers of light-engine aircraft equipment in the conditions of volumetric competition

Grishanov G.M., Kolychev S.A., Ivanov D.Y.


Enterprises of the domestic light-engine aircraft industry are in tough competition both in the domestic and foreign markets. To minimize the risks associated with strategic interaction with participants in these markets, enterprises should form their production programs based on a comprehensive analysis of the competitive environment. Determination of the optimal equilibrium values of the output volumes for each participant does not provide information on the dynamics of the interaction of competitors. In this regard, in order to describe the dynamics of market relations, it becomes necessary to develop a dynamic simulation model for the development of the light aircraft market. The paper considers a dynamic model of the problem of choosing a production program by enterprises producing light aircraft equipment in the duopole market, using a discrete simulation computer model. This model is represented by several algorithms generated in the Simulink software package (Matlab), using the library of standard operators of this package. This model allows to determine the trajectories of changes in the equilibrium values of quantities, prices and gross income. Also, using this model, it is possible to assess the influence of the costs incurred by enterprises on the implementation of the production program, on the results of market interaction, to determine the most significant parameters and, on this basis, to form a decision on the choice of a competitive strategy.
