Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): The Kursk state technical university in the spring of 2009 will celebrate 45-th anniversary. The university carries out preparation of experts, bachelors, masters and post-graduate students more than in 60 directions. In 1991 the first set of students on economic specialities took place.
Chair of Economy and management was at the beginnings of creation of economic faculty. Now the department carries out preparation of economists-managers for different kinds of economic activities. The department carries out scientific researches in following directions:
  • improvement of methods of indicative forecasting and planning;
  • social forecasting and planning;
  • a complex estimation of level of social and economic development of territories.
In these directions under a scientific management of professor E.N.Kuzbozhev and the senior lecturer of department A.V. Evchenko master's theses of 28 post-graduate students and competitors have defended. In the chosen direction eight teachers of the department work.
Expertise offered As the contribution to the chosen project it is offered to develop and scientifically to prove techniques of overcoming of a social inequality of territories by criteria of intraregional economic and social symmetry. On this basis formation of the project of new "grid" of administrative-territorial division of region and a substantiation of its social and economic efficiency in comparison with operating is supposed. Proceeding growth of social and economic differentiation of territories of the world staticizes creation of technologies of integration and overcoming of an inequality of territories. Novelty of research consists in development of theoretical positions and methodical recommendations about regulation of social asymmetry, including we suppose:
  • specification of the contents of categories «social and economic asymmetry» and «regional social and economic system»;
  • a substantiation of representation of "region" as asymmetric social and economic system, definition of its contents and structural elements; adaptation of theories of economic division into districts and the polarised development; feature of our approach will imply in change of territorially-administrative structure with a view of decrease in social asymmetry and programming of an economic kernel as the defining factor of a sustainable development of a region;
  • formation (in addition to known) of private indicators systems is the fullest displaying social and an economic situation of administrative areas; on the basis of conformity of economic and social development of the areas estimated on these indicators, the technology of measurement of territorial asymmetry will be developed;
  • creation of techniques of grouping of the areas, allowing to differentiate their sets on groups depending on specificity of an economic and social situation; the given techniques will differ the specificity account at definition of perspective directions and necessary rates of social and economic development of areas;
  • working out procedure of an estimation of influence on the areas adjoining on adjacent regions, internal vectors of social and economic influence (starting with the regional centre) and external vectors (from outside adjoining regions) which, on a plan, will allow to establish, whether make peripheral areas of region homogeneous social and economic groups, and on the basis of similarity parametres to diagnose degree of influence of adjacent regions on their development;
  • working out offers on formation of development of administrative areas on prospect; by criteria of social and economic symmetry new "grid" of areas on an example of Kursk area will be generated. As research toolkit general scientific receptions of the analysis and synthesis will be used; specific methods of research: monographic, is abstract-logic, methods of economic-mathematical modelling and statistical researches; The system approach to the decision difficult, semistructured problems; methods of forecasting and programmno-target planning.
