Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the correlation between the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) and certain leading economic indicators. We follow a different path than the existing literature follows. In particular, using a multi-linear regression method and defining the BDI index as a dependent variable, we seek to determine the multiple relations of the independent variables regarding the BDI value. We are looking at whether the BDI is a representative indicator not only for the shipping industry itself, but also for the whole economic and financial environment in which the shipping industry operates.

Abstract

The article analyzes the influence of various factors of the regional scientific environment on the performance of scientific organizations. 541 research institutions located on the territory of 65 Russian Federation’ subjects were selected as the study’s object. The study used the statistical data of the Federal Monitoring System of Scientific Organizations (FMSSO), Federal State Statistics Service, the Ministry of Justice and other open sources. The indicators proposed in the methodology of the FMSSO were used as indexes of scientific organizations performance. According the methodology three types of scientific organizations were distinguished – scientific organizations-leaders; stable scientific organizations that demonstrate satisfactory performance; and scientific organizations that have lost their scientific profile and development prospects. Data analysis showed that performance of scientific organizations is greatly influenced by such factors as a set of material, technical and financial conditions of the development of scientific activity.

Abstract

The subject of the research is improvement of methodological tools for modeling economic development based on the formation of innovative clusters of environmental management within the region economic space. The aim of the work is to develop an economic-mathematical model for the formation of innovative clusters, expanding the methodological potential of forecasting and planning territorial development. Special attention is paid to the peculiarities of innovative cluster development process, which determine the initial conditions of the problem of finding the optimal spatial location and long-term development of industrial production in the cluster. The problems of optimization of spatial distribution of new and development of existing industries in the process of implementation of the cluster initiative are considered, approaches to mathematical modeling of formation and development of innovative clusters are generalized. The features of the economic-mathematical model of the formation of innovative cluster of environmental management are identified. The problem of optimizing economic development for territory on the basis of innovation cluster are formulated.

Keywords: economic clustering, innovation clusters, environmental management, optimization of economic development, economic-mathematical model, territorial development, industrial policy, regional economy, old-industrial regions, resource-producing industries, inter-sectoral interaction.
