As globalization continues to force economic change around the world, countries that are investing in the quality of human capital and developing their investment climate are emerging as leaders.
Given the pace of Russia’s integration into the system of the global division of labor and the low competitive ability of traditional labor-intensive industries, access to leading positions in the new technologies is one of the core challenges for the country today.
The first International Forum for Technological Development, “Technoprom-2013,” will be held in Novosibirsk for two days starting November 14, and will address four thematic areas: “Critical technologies and technological breakthroughs,” “Demand for technology: policy incentives,” “Technological leadership and new management,” and “Transforming technology: the infrastructure of development.” The forum will include an exhibition of industrial enterprises and innovative companies.
The forum is sponsored by the Russian government, the State Duma, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Fund for Advanced Research, the Agency of Strategic Initiatives for the Promotion of New Projects, the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, the Association of Technical Universities, and the Russian Academy of Sciences and its Siberian Division.
