That said, the jobs of R&D within universities are probably been filled long ago, many older people. Same issue here where the universities R&D faculties are held all by rather older people with some students.
Industrial base was seriously undermined in the last 30 years. Article mentions Moscow, as example where there are no prospects for employment. Aside from some designer bureaus, I'm afraid that it will stay like that. Moscow turned itself into a capital of service industries. Starting any production in the city doesn't make sense, as cost are too high when compared to other places.
In any case, government shouldn't even think of subsidizing manufacturing in Moscow (not Moscow oblast), as every ruble will go much further in other parts of Russia.
That's every major city at this point in the world.
Smaller cities like Krasnoyarsk will end up booming eventually, Novosibirsk as well. Vladivostok, etc. And rightly so, capital needs to flow that way away from Moscow. Moscow will always now be administrative, service and banking for Russia. St.Pete will stay as remote jobs, art, and major industrial.
Small and medium companies will move to smaller. It's only natural. Universities will have to adjust to this.
