Youth and the innovational economics of tomorrow
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.
