The Technological Breakthrough and Spatial Development of the Country

24 May , 11:00–12:15
Harnessing Russia’s Growth Potential
Panel Session
Congress Centre, Conference Hall D2

The depletion of traditional models of economic growth based on the extensive exploitation of resources, makes it vital to identify new sources of development rooted in science and technology. For Russia, one of the main challenges is the need to protect, preserve, and develop infrastructure for its vast territory. At the same time, effective and sustainable use of the country’s land is one of the main resources for innovative development. How can this challenge be addressed so that Russia’s territory becomes one of the factors of economic growth and technological development? What may science offer in this regard, and how may we ensure the necessary mobilization of the country’s intellectual resources, taking into consideration the diversity and specialization of individual regions? What place does Russia occupy both in the world and on the global intellectual (scientific) map?
