author: Marina Chepikova, Lubov Kolokolova

The meeting re development of the energy-machine-building cluster in Bashkiria has taken place in the Ministry of industry and innovational policy RB with participation of heads of local enterprises, institutes, ministries and departments. The meeting was held by the Minister of industry and innovational policy RB Robert Vagapov.

Less than one year has passed from the moment of establishment of the energy-machine-building cluster, which activity has to be coordinated by “BASHTECHINFORM”. The head of the cluster center Vyacheslaw Kruzkov has reported the results of its activity and told about the plans for the future. “The clusters are necessary first of all for solution of innovational problems. Small enterprises aren’t yet able to solve so serious problems because of their not enough competence. Besides, the co-operational relations are still weak and one is able to achieve really substantial results only through the clusters with the help of joint efforts” – he said.

The participants of the meeting decided to work up the plan for development of the energy-machine-building cluster in 2011 till the end of March. It is expected about two billion rubles will be allocated for financing of the promising and economically expedient projects in 2011. Similar sum will be allocated for support of innovators in 2012 too.
