Complex Management of Promising Technologies: A Case Study of Russian Nano-Industry
Volume 12, Issue 2

Daniil P. Frolov, Elena G. Popkova, Irina V. Stratulat, and Anna A. Shulimova

This article addresses the debatable issues of the complex management of nanotechnological industry in the developed and developing countries. The authors discuss the substantial expansionism of the “nanotechnology” term and the metaphor of the notion of “nano-industry.” The authors further explain the necessity of the creation of detailed nanotechnologies classification and distinguishing of at least three sub-industries of nano-industry. There is a deficit of convergent orientation of the policy of Russian high-tech industries regulation. A conceptual inconsistency of the Russian nano-industrial policy, which is combining the elements of the traditional policy of import substitution and new industrial policy, is shown in detail. The functionality of the transition from the universal policy of nano-industry regulation to the development of the cluster of segment-oriented development strategies of various types of nanotechnologies and nanotechnological branches is reasoned. The authors pay special attention to the issue of security control (and submit the suggestion of a combination of compulsory certification and voluntary marking of nano products), strengthening of the role of nano-industry self-regulation, and the integration of its stakeholders into the system of strategic planning.
