Technology corridors are regarded as a promising new tool for the management of technological development and economic modernization of the economy. The introduction of defined technological corridors can have a significant impact on consumption and lifestyle of a society, so far there is a risk of rejecting the reforms and social tensions.

The authors studied the experience of the introduction of the first Russian technology corridor for motor fuel manufacturers. They considered disadvantages related to domestic practice of technical regulations that constrain the implementation of technological corridors. Thorugh analysis of this case it becomes clear that the only governmental mandatory requirements and restrictions addressed to the manufactures will not result in the necessary changes. Mandatory requirements should be supplemented by a list of measures establishing conditions for enterprises that allow them to follow-up the established standards. In addition, a complete roadmap is required for the successful establishment and moving within a technology corridor. The paper lists the measures that must accompany the successful promotion of technological corridor.

The paper presents the results of a sociological survey that demonstrated the general readiness of the Russian actors to introducing more stringent standards, regulations and quality requirements close to European ones, and would be prepared to deal with possible negative consequences of these steps. The priority introduction of a tighter regulation in agriculture, food processing, pharmaceutical and construction would be welcomed by the Russians.

In general, it can be concluded that the estimate of the prospects of introducing technological corridors is variable. It depends on an aspect of life which will be influenced by introducing technology corridors. The revealed clear priorities are: security of personal consumption, environment, public safety, and energy as well as resource conservation. Such a ranking provides a basis for the establishing the optimal sequence in introducing technological corridors.

The study’s respondent’s attitude towards the prospects of introducing technological rodmaps, and interviews with experts allowed identifying possible future designs of the roadmaps for some sectors.
