At section “Novosibirsk. Digital Economy of a ‘smart city’”, the mayor of Novosibirsk, Anatoly Lokot, said that solving the problem associated with the accessibility of city center, Tolmachevo airport and Novosibirsk railway station for those who lived in Akademgorodok and municipalities, which would be included into the project for development of Novosibirsk research center “Akademgorodok 2.0”, was a high-priority task.

At the round table “Ecological Trends of Technological Breakthrough in Nanotech Industry and High-Tech Sectors”, the Deputy Director of the Standardization Department of the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs Rosnano, Olga Makarova, reported that a group of four fundamental standards, which made up the basis for standardization in the field of “green” products and technologies, would be established until the end of 2018. She also added that until the end of this year the Fund was planning to complete the certification of three houses in Krasnoyarsk, Bataysk and Yekaterinburg, which were built with the use of “green” technologies.

At the round table “Development of NTI Circle Activities in Neurotechnology: Best Regional Practices”, the head of laboratory of the Informatics Department of NSU, Inzhevika, the candidate of biological sciences,Ivan Polikarpov,  told about their intention to apply the experience of scientists and professors from Novosibirsk in teaching engineering science to students to the neighboring Siberian regions withing a year. “We’ve got an idea to focus on three areas: neurotechnology, engineering biology and programming. We have to develop teaching packages in these areas, which we can bring to other Siberian regions and work with them to create a platform where local organizers and tutors may appear”, he said. The visiting sessions of Inzhevika laboratory will take place in Omsk, Novokuznetsk, Ulan-Ude and other Siberian cities.

During her presentation at panel discussion “New Production Technologies as an Incentive for Building and Preparation of the Country’s Workforce Capacity in the Logic of NTI”, the General Director of JSC Innovation Medical Technology Center (Medical Technopark), Yekaterina Mamonova, announced the plans of Novosibirsk Medical Technopark to build the center for engineering and manufacturing of new products within the project of development of Novosibirsk research center, “Akademgorodok 2.0”. According to her, this expansion will require from RUB 800 mn to RUB 1 bn. “We are specializing in engineering, improvement, adjustment and release of medical devices to healthcare. We have created a complex that will continue developing in testing facilities. There are also issues related to the creation of special production centers, primarily, to manufacture cellular, biomedical products, and additive technologies”, Yekaterina Mamonova explained.

During the third day of Technoprom-2018, JSC Innovation Medical Technology Center (Medical Technopark) have concluded the agreement for cooperation with the All-Russia Research And Testing Institute For Medical Equipment of the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare. Mamonova said that this agreement would allow for more effective implementation of products in the healthcare system.

In agreement with the government of Novosibirsk Region, which was on Wednesday, at Technoprom-2018, IDGC of Siberia together with Regional Electricity Mains is planning to implement the project for digitalization of power grid of Novosibirsk Region. This agreement will help to bring together the efforts of the regional government and energy workers to ensure reliable and uninterruptible power supply to the regional residents.

Tsyvyan Novosibirsk Research Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics (Tsyvyan NNIITO) and Novosibirsk Institute of Organic Chemistry of SB of RAS have signed the agreement for cooperation, which provides for testing and further manufacturing of biodegradable materials used in traumatology.  “Now, the priority plans include the production of such materials and their testing on animals to verify their mechanical characteristics and safety. By the end of this year, we are going to make a Time Schedule of Tests, which will be started next year”, the director of Novosibirsk Institute of Organic Chemistry of Siberian Branch of RAS, Elena Bagryanskaya commented. She specified that within the framework of cooperation it was also planned to create new antibiotics, which could accelerate the healing process after the injection of biodegradable constructions, and to improve the radiopaque contrast agents used to enhance the visualization of inner organs and anatomical structures when using radiological methods.
