The Center for Institutional Studies (CInSt) was established in 2010 on the basis of the first research laboratory of HSE University—now International Research Laboratory for Institutional Analysis of Economic Reforms—with the goal of creation of a scientific center in the field of institutional economics as a part of an international cooperation network, and promoting international standards of research. We provide conditions and incentives for young and talented university graduates to participate in both scientific and teaching activities at the HSE. Our professional interests are focused on institutional analysis of different markets and sectors of the economy, among them are education, procurement, banking, non-profit organizations.
The conference took place at University of Kassel, Germany, and gathered 146 papers by researchers from over 30 countries. CInSt researchers addressed 5 different topics on higher education from bibliometrics to policy implications and economics of education.
In this issue of Higher Education in Russia and Beyond (HERB) contributors from universities in Russia and beyond share case studies about making good use of international mobility programs to enhance research collaboration, about the successes and challenges of hiring faculty members and postdocs internationally, and about the best practices and pitfalls of integrating internationally recruited faculty into the university community. Celebrate the last day of Summer learning about some of the most interesting practices of international recruitment in post-Soviet countries.
Read the recently published Russian report on Academic Profession in Knowledge-based Society (APIKS) study
One of the main research paths CInSt has been exploring for decades is studying pecularities of academic profession. In order to be able to look at the development of Russian higher education system from a different perspective, the center has long actively participated in comparative cross-country projects. This is why CInSt ventured into Academic Profession in Knowledge-based Society (APIKS).
We can hardly believe it, but the 2019 session of RSSIA has already come to an end! We received more than 100 applications, but only 24 of the strongest research proposals were accepted. Participants came from a wide range of countries: China, Belgium, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Philippines, and Russia.
For the last month, Victor Rudakov, Research fellow of Centre for Institutional Studies and Laboratory for Labour Market Studies, worked as a visiting researcher in the Center for Research in Higher Education Policies, Porto, Portugal.
