Doctor of Science, Economics (1981), Corresponding Member, the Russian Academy of Sciences (1987), Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1997)

A leading Russian scientist in the field of planning and forecasting social and economic processes and functions of Russian, Siberian and regional economies.

On graduation in 1965 from the National Economy Institute n.a. Plekhanov, V.V. Kuleshov was personally invited by A.G. Aganbegyan to join the Institute. In 1969, he successfully defended his Candidate’s and in 1980 – his Doctor’s thesis. Elected a Corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1987 and a full Member – in 1997. Director of the Institute since 1992. He is the author and co-author of 330 scientific papers, 26 of which are monographies.

Primary areas and results of scientific research of V.V. Kuleshov in the initial period of his work (approximately to the mid 1990-s) relate to forecasting development of multi-sector complexes including methodology, range of tools and technology of their use; creation of economic mathematical models aimed at coordinating decisions in economic systems of various levels; problems of cost-effective use of resources – development of organizational economic mechanism for radical reduction of resource intensity of the national economy and its separate sectors.

When he headed the IEIE SB RAS, V.V. Kuleshov directed his scientific and organizational efforts at Siberian problems. This work focused on shaping and developing methods of research into modern evolution processes of a large regional economic system , study of social economic problems and prospects of Siberian development within the national economy of Russia, creation of effective economic mechanism in Siberian regions and formation of favorable social economic environment in Siberia for the residents of the region. His major attention shifts to monitoring the social economic situation in Russia, modeling and scenario analysis of spatial development of Russian economy.

Under guidance and with direct participation of V.V. Kuleshov a number of major international projects are underway as well as research projects in the priority framework of fundamental research of RAS including special-order and interdisciplinary research of SB RAS. Important research efforts were made for Federal and regional authorities as part of preparation of programs for development of Siberia and its various regions. Those include ‘The strategy of social and economic development of Siberia until 2020’ approved by the RF government.

V.V. Kuleshov is actively involved in raising top-qualification scientific staff: for many years he has chaired the dissertation council of the IEIE SB RAS that oversees the defense of candidates’ and doctors’ theses. Among his pupils there are 16 candidates of science. For 25 years he had taught at the Novosibirsk State University.
