The purpose of the first stage (2018 y.) – to research the existing theories of development of digital infrastructures and models of digital social research, to develop the concept of a digital portal for evaluating the effectiveness of scientific potential and a model of the architecture of the information system of IE.
The main results of the first stage of research (2018 y.):
– on the basis of studying and generalization of the evolution stages of development and transformation IT identifies the main technological trends on which to build a modern digital platform of global importance in the run-up to “Industry 4.0;
– the main elements of the digital infrastructure of social research are identified, consisting of a set of unifying concepts, axioms and relations in the field of social research;
– The significance of the development of the concept of scientometric indicators and methods for assessing scientific research is substantiated; the classification of prevailing approaches to assessing scientific potential is given; Scopus and Web of Science, the leading digital publishing process management platform, were reviewed;
– stages and tasks of the information model of the Institute of Economics system have been developed; The adaptive design of the multifunctional WEB-model of the Institute of Economics information system was developed.

Scientific results are reflected in the following foreign rating publications of the RSCI and SCOPUS bases:

The purpose at the second stage (2019 y.) – to analyze the level of digital readiness of Kazakhstan, models of digital social research, assess the scientific potential and effectiveness of scientific research, develop a prototype of the information system architecture of IE.

The main results of the second stage of research (2019 y.):
– a methodology for assessing the level of scientific and technological development, a digital environment and infrastructure was developed, and its testing was carried out;
– the analysis of modern models of social research in the development of digital infrastructure was carried out and the choice of the most acceptable digital social research models for Kazakhstan was substantiated;
– an assessment of the level of scientific potential and the effectiveness of scientific research by bibliometric criteria;
– algorithms and standards were developed for the model of the information system, transitions (actions) of the user of the WEB model of the information system of the Institute of Economics, and its testing was carried out.
