The role of engineering services in the boost of technological innovation efficiency (using federal subject of the Russian Federation as a case study)

In the article on the example of Moscow (federal subject of the Russian Federation) was reviewed the contribution of engineering companies in the overall process of innovation activity and identified potential demand of Moscow industrial companies for engineering services. Selected approach to the source of initial data is polling Moscow industrial companies with the largest number of employees. The evaluation of the engineering services market is based on the results of the poll. As the result in the article were: defined branches with maximum demand for engineering services and the most popular types of services; identified key issues having negative impact on the development of cooperation among sector of industry and Russian industrial engineering companies; formed set of recommendations in order to improve support system of the innovation in federal subject.

Keywords: innovative economy, technological innovation, scientific and technological development, engineering companies, the market of engineering services
