MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Chief of the RUSNANO state-run corporation Anatoly Chubais asked President Dmitry Medvedev to give a legal support to the launch of complex innovative solutions. “It is high time to turn from separate projects in high technologies to complex solutions,” he said at a meeting of the Presidential Commission for Modernization and Technological Development of Russian Economy.
Chubais gave as an example of the transition to such complex solutions the NanoDom project, which is a project of a ‘smart’ house, in which right several solutions, which are based on nanotechnologies and in which the nano-materials are used, are put into practice. This house model was put on display at the exhibition, which is held at the International Forum of Nanotechnologies. “We hope to build the first innovative house next year,” Chubais said.
Meanwhile, there are some more projects, for instance, an innovative highway, a shop of the future, a modern school and others, he went on to say. “The implementation of these projects requires the support from the authorities,” Chubais said. Meanwhile, the RUSNANO chief noted that it is not a matter of money, but it is a matter of “regulatory documents to launch pilot projects.”
