Founded in 1987, VTsIOM is to­day one of the lead­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions in the Rus­sian mar­ket for so­ci­o­log­i­cal reasearch and mar­ket­ing ser­vices. The pri­or­ity area is to con­duct so­ci­o­log­i­cal re­search of a po­lit­i­cal, so­cial and elec­toral na­ture, work com­mis­sioned by fed­eral and re­gional gov­ern­ment bod­ies.

Natalia Se­dova, As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of VTsIOM for Sci­ence, Head of Ba­sic Re­search, told Uzbek col­leagues about the main trends in so­ci­ety and the re­search in­dus­try, changes in ap­proaches, meth­ods and tech­nolo­gies, and the sub­ject field for study­ing pub­lic opin­ion.

What in­flu­ences the re­searcher and his work, how to track these changes and use them in their work, how com­pa­nies and so­ci­ol­o­gists change to meet the main­stream? How to take into ac­count the fac­tor of de­vel­op­ment of civil so­ci­ety, civic ac­tiv­ity in re­search? All these ques­tions were cov­ered by the speaker.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Uzbek­istan, in par­tic­u­lar, spe­cial­ists from the Ij­ti­moiy Fikr sci­en­tific and an­a­lyt­i­cal cen­ter, shared the re­sults of the cen­ter’s re­search in a re­port en­ti­tled “Di­a­logue be­tween the State and Civil So­ci­ety: New Mech­a­nisms for Ef­fec­tive In­ter­ac­tion.”

Dis­cus­sion of prob­lems and so­lu­tions in the study of pub­lic opin­ion con­tin­ued in the for­mat of a com­pre­hen­sive ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion, as well as in an in­for­mal set­ting.

Fol­low­ing the meet­ing, within the frame­work of a re­newed agree­ment on co­op­er­a­tion be­tween or­ga­ni­za­tions, an ex­hi­bi­tion called “Rus­sia is sur­prised” is sched­uled as part of a spe­cial project of VTsIOM in Uzbek­istan based on Ij­ti­moiy Fikr and a pop­u­lar sci­ence project for Uzbek­istan is be­ing held in the spring of 2019 in a spe­cial exit ses­sion of the so­ci­o­log­i­cal school for VTsIOM Ij­ti­moiy Fikr em­ploy­ees and young re­searchers from other or­ga­ni­za­tions and uni­ver­si­ties of Uzbek­istan, im­ple­ment­ing joint re­search projects.
