Subject The article considers the current status and prospects for improving the regulatory framework for innovation in the Russian Federation.
Objectives The study aims to identify the comparability of and overlapping in regulations on innovation in modern Russia and to find ways to improve the existing regulatory framework.
Methods We apply a formal legal method to review certain statutory documents and a comparative legal analysis to compare them.
Results We considered five by-laws regulating the innovation in the Russian Federation, compared them, studied their key goals and methods to achieve the goals. This enabled us to reveal common features and contradictions in the modern statutory regulation of the innovation segment of the Russian economy and the entire innovation ecosystem. The paper defines a number of problems in the subordinate legislation that require further elaboration to enhance the efficiency of regulation.
Conclusions The existing regulatory framework for innovation is somewhat fragmented. There are many regulations in force, but almost all of them are autonomous and have no reference to related rules. Furthermore, statutory regulation considers the innovation ecosystem financing in a superficial manner, though this issue is often a key one, as public and private investment shortfall hampers the development of science and technology and innovation processes.
