The purpose of this study is to conduct an up-to-date review and international comparison of the structure, organization, management, and performance of the Soviet research and development sector, subsequently deducing the potential and form of its remnants in Russia’s transition to a market economy and bid to rejoin the global mainstream scientific and economic communities. This is a substantial task by any means, but a rewarding one. Rewarding in that the results reveal the ominous size and significant devotion of Soviet planners to promote R&D, despite their inefficient use of it. Russia, the largest successor republic of the former Union, is heir to most of these voluminous resources accumulated over the decades, though also to the administrative burdens. The potential for a progressive future looks positive if accompanied by appropriate management reforms.
