FOUNDERS OF THE JOURNAL
Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences
Currently the Siberian Branch of the RAS occupies the overall territory of 10 million square kilometers from Tyumen in the west to Yakutsk and Chita in the east, from Kyzyl in the south to Tiksi in the north. Its business contacts, trips and expeditions cover even larger area.
The Siberian Branch of the RAS includes 74 scientific research institutions and 13 engineering bureaus. Over the last few years there were created 18 international scientific centers classified as open institutes or laboratories that work on issues of physics, engineering, mathematics, chemistry, biology, humanities, economics and Earth sciences.
Territorial centers of the Siberian Branch were originally designed according to the new principles that went much ahead of their time, elaborated by M.A. Lavrentiev, founder of the Siberian Branch and Member of the RAS:
Ě priority development of basic research;
Ě integration of science and education.
Academic science has played a big role in the development of the eastern regions of Russia, serving as an important integrating factor for all scientific, technical and educational potential of Siberia. This experience has received worldwide attention. In the fashion of Novosibirsk Akademgorodok, there have been created complex scientific centers and Ĺtechnopolisesĺ in other countries: France, Japan, and Korea.
Institute of Economics and Industrial Engineering, Siberian Branch of the RAS (IEIE SB RAS)
The Institute of Economics and Industrial Engineering SB RAS was founded in 1957 and became the first academic research institution of economics in the Russian Federation to the east of the Ural Mountains.
When the economic institute appeared as part of the Siberian Branch in the east of the country, it marked a milestone in the development of economic science in Siberia and the Far East. The Institute manages the formulation, implementation and organization of economic and social studies which are meant to have a large, diverse and direct impact on all aspects of socioeconomic development of the CIS, Russia and its regions.
The Institute carries out extensive research on fundamental problems of economics and develops a large number of applications, always taking care to ensure that they are introduced to the national economy.
Over the years of its operation, the Institute has made major advances in the development of such scientific fields as mathematical modeling of socioeconomic processes, regional economics, economic sociology, and the theory of economic governance at the level of national economy, industries, interindustrial complexes, territorial production complexes and individual businesses.
The Institute continues analyzing the changes taking place due to the transition from mixed to market economy and their consequences.
Interregional Association ôSiberian Accordö (IASA)
The Interregional Association ôSiberian Accordö was formed in October, 1990 as a voluntary interregional coalition for economic cooperation. It brings together the nineteen subjects of the Russian Federation in the Siberian Federal District and Tyumen Oblast. IASAĺs main goals are as follows:
Ě to assist at mitigating the negative impact of deformations in economic sector accumulated during the transition to market economy and reducing social tensions;
Ě to exercise new methods of economic governance at the regional and interregional levels under the conditions of decentralized economy and emerging market relations;
Ě to achieve stability in the development of territorial economies under the new conditions and, as a consequence, to improve the standards of living of Siberian population.
IASAĺs supreme body is the Council composed of the heads of legislative and executive authorities of the territories. The implementation of socioeconomic programs adopted by the Council is organized and coordinated by the Executive Committee.
