RUSNANO at the Open Innovations Forum 2015
Speech by Anatoly Chubais at the strategy session on Open Innovations Model in Russia
The program of the Forum includes speeches of the representatives of RUSNANO portfolio companies. Igor Shakhray (Hevel) will be speaking about the role of solar energy generation in the energy revolution. Valeriy Gurinovich (Galen) and Andrey Berkov (Department for Programs to Stimulate Demand, FIEP) will make reports on principles of effective technical regulation in construction industry.
Visitors of the Forum and Technology Show will get acquainted with the healthcare activities of the Group in sections dedicated to personalized medicine, infrastructure for medical standards and Big Pharma ecosystem.
RUSNANO Group’s stand at the Open Innovations Forum and Technology Show
At the RUSNANO’s stand (in hall 75) the products of 16 portfolio companies and 10 startups of the FIEP nanocenters will be presented: thin film electroluminescent displays, healthcare and military products made of nanostructured ceramics, composite materials for construction and aviation industry, multicore semantic microprocessors, coating for high diameter pipes and 3D printers.
RUSNANO’s portfolio company Monocrystal (Stavropol) will demonstrate a unique 300 kg synthetic sapphire crystal grown by the Kyropoulos method modified according to the company’s own technology. The company established the production of large diameter sapphire wafers (over 300 mm) and achieved a significant reduction of the end product costs. Analytical company Yole Developpement recognized Monocrystal as the world’s leading manufacturer of synthetic sapphire at 2014 year-end.
Hevel, a common project of RUSNANO and Renova Group, will introduce solar modules created in the company’s research and development center at the Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute. This unique domestic product combines the best of thin film and crystalline silicon technologies. The efficiency coefficient of the new generation solar panels is up to 24.7% while world average coefficient is about 16%.
In the Robot Zone RUSNANO will demonstrate robot-assisted logistics system RONAVI which allows managing a warehouse without human interference. The system allows increasing the capacity of a warehouse up to 50%, saving money on its lighting and heating, as well as reducing the payroll to 80%. Load capacity of the system is up to 1500 kg; its battery life is 6 hours. The system is designed for large logistics centers, retail chains warehouses and production lines management.
The RUSNANO’s stand will traditionally be a platform for interactive activities: this year young researchers will visit Nano Laboratory and for inquisitive high school students NANOpig in a Poke Program will be organized. DNA purification experiments, genome analysis and blood group determination will be available for them at BioLogica workshop sessions. The proponents of projects of the FIEP nanocenters will be giving presentations in the startup bar zone. They will be talking about the latest nanotechnology solutions.
RUSNANO was founded as an open joint stock company in March 2011, through reorganization of state corporation Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies. RUSNANO is instrumental in realizing government policies for nanoindustry growth, investing in financially effective high-technology projects that guarantee the development of new manufacturing within the Russian Federation. The company invests in nanotechnology companies directly and through investment funds. Its primary investment focus is in electronics, optoelectronics and telecommunications, healthcare and biotechnology, metallurgy and metalwork, energy, mechanical engineering and instrument making, construction and industrial materials, and chemicals and petrochemicals. The Government of the Russian Federation owns 100 percent of the shares in RUSNANO.
Work to establish nanotechnology infrastructure and carry out educational programs is fulfilled by RUSNANO’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs, which was also established during the reorganization of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies.
Management of the investment assets of RUSNANO are carried out by a limited liability company established in December 2013, RUSNANO Asset Management. Anatoly Chubais is chairman of its Executive Board.
