The methodology for the formation of a new economy of industrial systems based on the principles of ecosystem and circularity was developed:
- the conceptual provisions and principles of functioning of multi-level ecosystems as a form of sustainable innovative development of the industry and the territory were formed;
- the analysis and classification of scientific approaches to the category of “circular economy” and its main elements were carried out;
- a mechanism for analyzing and evaluating actors from the perspective of ecosystem interaction based on the hierarchy method was developed;
- the system of criteria for evaluating industrial ecosystem projects was set up, with reference to the stages of housing and communal services;
- a methodological approach to assessing the sustainability of ecosystem development based on an integrated assessment of the potentials of all components of the ecosystem structure was proposed;
- an entropy model of sustainable development of the territorial ecosystem was developed;
- a mechanism for implementing innovative development of industrial complexes based on ecosystem and circular approaches was proposed;
- assessment of applicants for the role of actors of the industrial ecosystem “Technologies for improving the quality of life” based on the method of hierarchies with reference to the stages of housing projects and the ecosystem was performed; assessment of the circular and integration potentials of the industrial ecosystems “Kalundborg Symbiosis” and “Baltic Industrial Symbiosis” was carried out;
- assessment of the stability of the territorial ecosystems of the Penza and Vladimir regions was performed.
The developed provisions of a scientific and practical nature should be applied in economic systems of various scales, levels, spheres of action, forms of ownership: national, sectoral, regional, and individual enterprises, complexes, symbioses.
The proposed theoretical provisions are relevant in substantiating the conceptual foundations of industrial development management in the context of technological and social transformation aimed at obtaining new theoretical and practical knowledge based on the conventional laws of development and characterized by a set of proposed principles, theoretical aspects, mechanisms, and efficiency assessments.
The research results will allow to formalize the existing system of knowledge on ensuring innovative development of industrial actors under the conditions of open innovations and to suggest priority directions and strategy of sectoral and territorial innovative development of ecosystems under the conditions of digital economy formation.
The proposed solutions may be in demand in the areas of development of cross-sectoral projects, networks and services, intelligent dynamic systems and management technologies, service-oriented systems, intelligent Internet technologies, which corresponds to the worldwide level of research.
The provisions of the studies addressed to the management of ecosystem participants may be used to improve the processes, methods, and models for developing and implementing strategies, development programs for technological transformation, and the introduction of digital platforms, which will increase the efficiency of their development.
A mechanism for the integration of technology transfer centers as an element of the international innovation network of technology transfer was created:
- modern concepts of innovative development were analyzed;
- the place and role of technology transfer centers in the implementation of state strategic initiatives of scientific and technological development of Russia were determined;
- the main functions, tools, and models of Russian network technology transfer centers were classified;
- benchmarking of the most famous Russian networks of technology transfer centers (TTC) was performed; and
- recommendations on the mechanism for integrating technology transfer centers at Russian universities in the meso- and macro-level networks were proposed.
