Research Groups and Laboratories
The Public-Private Interactions Center (PPI-Centre) focuses on various forms and mechanisms of economic interactions between the state (the public sector) and the business (the private sector). The main emphasis is on the procurement of goods and services by the public sector from the private one, provision of public goods through a partnership between the public and the private sector (public-private partnership, PPP) and the role of non-commercial (non-profit) organisations and social entrepreneurship in the relationship between the state and the private sector.
The International Laboratory of Intangible-driven Economy traces its origins to a research group that has been working in the field of intellectual capital and empirical finance at the HSE-Perm for the last four years. By carrying out comparative empirical research that develops awareness of intellectual resources as key drivers in the new economy, the Laboratory aims to become an international research centre that focuses on the role of intangibles in creating sustainable competitive advantages. The research team includes both leading scholars and young fellows from the HSE and partner universities in Europe and the United States.
The Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Empirical Studies (LINES) was established in September 2013 to replace the Laboratory for Investment Analysis. The basic idea of LINES is to create a single unit for research performed at the HSE-Perm, while promoting interdisciplinarity and maintaining project synergy. In addition to merging current projects, the Laboratory serves as a research incubator that recruits research assistants and research fellows for new research projects at the Perm campus. This makes it possible to attract experienced researchers to work on ongoing projects as laboratory research fellows and also students as laboratory research assistants, solidifying the mutual obligations of the staff and the university.
