«National Technology Initiative (NTI) and Nanotechnologies: Nano in Nets?

The new global markets of autonomous cars and automated flying vehicles, marine intellectual systems, personalized medicine, intellectual energy are now only taking shapes but will come out surely in true colors and scale in 10-15 years. Establishing new areas of growth in Russian economy within the frameworks of the National technology initiative (NTI) is the step toward creating the opportunity areas for Russian companies and fostering leaders of the markets of the future. By developing the so-called pass-through technologies that can be applied to any market (Net) that is in NTI’s focus, NTI gives a real opportunity to fight for the global leadership. One of these technologies might be the one of creating smart materials with customized properties – which is applicable to any material-based industry. How new materials can reshape the world markets chessboard and leadership, what role do nanotechnologies play in this game?

Professionals of the Future

In our VUCA and technology revolution world the appearance of the new professions is not an extraordinary thing but a routine one. At least 10 of today’s most demanded and highly paid professions did not exist 10 years ago – such as big data specialist, mobile applications developer, etc.

90% of the information that we have today have been generated during the last 2 years. Under such circumstances the meta-skills like soft skills start prevailing over practical knowledge in certain areas of occupation. The meta-skills mean cognitive flexibility, ability to study fast in today’s changing world, manage correctly the information flows and develop memory, be creative, be a leader, be communicative. The upcoming decades will make the trend stronger, therefore the questions arise: are people ready for the changing education paradigm, what technologies of tomorrow determine the competences to be studied today?

Awards, Ratings and Competitions’ role in innovation products and companies promotion

The Silver Archer award, the competition and rating “Tehuspekh”, other competitions such as GenerationS Tech-In-Media, StartUp Village, National Rating of the Technoparks in Russia, corporate competitions such as VIK.Nano, Green Chip, Science Slam – the key speakers – invited experts from Russian Venture Company, Skolkovo, Moscow Government, companies – competitors will talk about the role of these events.

No doubt, the companies submit applications for the competitions to promote their products as well, but at the same the competitions still determine the best practices in different industrial areas and innovations product consumers. But does it all help to stimulate the R&D, the demand, does it attracts the venture funds, private investors, how it contributes to the synergy of entrepreneurship and science?

Topics for discussion

· What and whom do the ratings and awards established for? For the organizers, competitors, consumers.

· Does the winning influence the company’s capitalization fir reputation?

· Does demand grow – on the prdoucts that have been highly rated by the award committee?

· Do the companies need to arrange their own competitions and tale part in the ratings and awards? If yes – who, when and how to do that?

· What is the best way to “pack” the products for the award participation?
