Youth and the innovational economics of tomorrow

July 5, 2012, 11:00 forum


On June 5, the Association of Managers, with the support of the state corporation Rosatom and the company General Electric, held the Second All-Russian Business Forum on Problems of Development of Innovations — Youth and the Innovational Economics of Tomorrow — at the Digital October center.

The forum was the key event of the National Competition of Innovational Projects, a unique platform for communication and cooperation between young innovators and innovational managers, experts, and potential investors. The forum took place in the format of a public discussion of mechanisms for effectively implementing out the innovational projects of young people as a factor of modernization and a shift to a “knowledge economy” in contemporary Russia.

In the course of the Second All-Russian Business Forum, it was planned to discuss questions of commercialization of innovational ideas and the problems of training programs in this area. As a result of the discussion, forum participants obtained recommendations on how to overcome administrative and infrastructural barriers that hinder large-scale adoption of innovations by young people.

The forum ended with an awards ceremony for the winners of the competition — laureates of the 100 Innovational Leaders of Russia ranking.

This year, the forum received more than 1000 submissions. All in all, more than 500 people — representatives of executive and legislative government departments and venture funds, business angels, representatives of the expert and academic communities, and young innovators and competition participants — took part.
