RTF participates in XIII Krasnoyarsk Forum on February 19-20, 2016
On February 19, RTF General Director Vadim Kulikov participated in the plenary sessions of the XIII Krasnoyarsk Forum. He noted that one of the most interesting presentations came from Skoltech Rector Alexander Kuleshov, who spoke about the colossal growth in the development of artificial intelligence, which will allow for many tasks currently performed by people to be transferred to machine in the near future.
During the forum, Vadim Kulikov, as well as SME Corporation General Director Alexander Braverman, other key managers of the corporation, Head of Opora Russia Alexander Kalinin, and heads of regional development Ministry of the Krasnoyarsk Krai and major companies visited an exhibition where developers presented unique Russian technological solutions.
On February 20, Vadim Kulikov participated in the panel discussion “SMALL BUSINESS – HOW TO EARN TWO TRILLION?” which was moderated by Alexander Braverman and Oleg Fomichev, Russian Federation state secretary/deputy minister of economic development.
The discussion was dedicated to actual problems in integrating small and medium-sized businesses into the supply chains of companies with government participation. Particular interest was paid to the results of the work and planning of the SME Corporation to ensure that SMEs have access to the procurement infrastructure of monopolies and companies with government participation.
As a result of the discussion, Vadim Kulikov in particular noted potential opportunities for RTF and the corporation to work together. The focus “would be directed toward helping new technologies from SMEs become integrated across all parts of major companies’ supply chains.” According to RTF, “in a given supply chain, both small enterprises and large companies – the consumers of technology – should invest. A significant indicator and result of growth of small and medium-sized enterprises will be the export of their products – not just to other, nearby countries, but to Europe and countries on the American continent.”
