I am putting together a faculty application for a university in Russia. The University has asked for an "Innovation Statement", along with other documents.

This is the first time I have heard of any such statement. I have googled the term and did not found much information, except one interesting article about "innovation mission statement" which does not fit well with a faculty application.

Any idea what an "innovation statement" is?

    A mis-translation of 'research statement', perhaps?

    Did they ask in English, in Russian, or both? If they asked in Russian, what was the Russian term they used? Some of our Russian-speaking members may be able to help.

  • No, they ask in English only. @avid, no I don't think it is a mistranslation. They have separately asked for a research statement. Besides, their English website is very professional :D

1 Answer 1


What makes your research novel, exciting, ground-breaking or significant should be delineated in a innovative statement. How you are advancing your field by eventually accomplishing your aims.
