“Just few regions in Russia may figure on development of innovational economics. Bashkortostan has all prerequisites for that: powerful technological base and high educational level. It is quite evident the Republic is able to become a real participant of the project on making the innovational economics. At present time only 24-25% Russian regions compete for the right to start developing innovational economics, including Bashkortostan” – the President of JSC “ROSNANO” Anatoly Chubais has stated at today’s meeting redevelopment of nanotechnologies and nanoindustry.

“We are ready to meet you with any investments but the main thing is that your projects have to be real” – Chubais underscored.

He has mentioned that his impression of what he watched in Bashkortostan is rather dubious. Many promising projects were introduced to him but at the same time he expected the number and the quality of these projects would be higher. In this connection the President of JSC “ROSNANO” thinks the potential in the region is still higher than the real projects and gave concrete recommendations on development of innovations in Bashkortostan. In particular, the matter is the promotion of “ECM” project to the international level. In opinion of M-r Chubais this is a global product, which should be introduced on the highest level.

As M-r Chubais underscored, JSC “ROSNANO” is deeply interested in development of the colossal potential RB.
