This poster expresses central ideas of the paper ‘The Territorial Dimension of The Russian Innovation Paradox’. The post stamp in the upper right hand corner symbolizes the Soviet Union’s relative strength in science. In the lower left hand corner, the oil pump behind the Russian flag refers to Russia’s dependence on natural resources. The map of Russia takes centre stage. It emphasizes the country’s territorial size, in line with the paper’s message that geography as a factor influencing Russia’s innovative performance should not be overlooked. The partially overlapping red rings represent ‘knowledge spillovers’: In the paper we examine to what extent Russian regions benefit from neighbouring regions’ investments in research and development. The red rings – i.e. interregional knowledge flows – are thick near innovation hubs such as Moscow, but become thinner as you move away from innovation centres.
