The V international innovational forum starts in Saint-Petersburg on September 26 and the contest for the title of the best innovational Russian region will be held within its frames by the Agency for regional innovational development.

“The teams will demonstrate innovational potential of their regions in the format of interactive talk-show. All projects will be examined by experts at the level of Russian Ministry for regional development and various development institutes. The most successful projects will be laid in the base of federal programs for regional development and the Challenge Cup will be the main prize for winners” – press secretary of the Academy of Sciences RB Svetlana Sedeleva reported.

Bashkir team consists of the heads of the territorial center of innovations RB, the Cluster Development Center and the Venture Fund RB.

Bashkir team will introduce the project of a multi-functional scientific-innovational center of the Republic. The idea was initiated by the Academy of Sciences RB. Later it was supported by the Ministry of industry and innovational policy RB and by the Fund for support and development of science RB.

“New structure will help to unite all innovational resources of the Republic. It will be a “healthy” variant of centralization and optimization, called to let the “innovational machine” start working at full strength. The authors of the idea intend to receive quite workable transparent system for support of regional innovational projects in “one window” format. If the experts approve it, the project will be recommended for usage by other regions” – Svetlana Sedeleva explained.

Besides, the conference “Regional policy in sphere of intellectual property in WTO conditions” is also scheduled within the frames of the forum and Bashkir team will take an active part in its work.
