ULYANOVSK, April 19 (Itar-Tass) — The first interregional venture fair of nuclear projects will open in Ulyanovsk, western Russia, on Thursday.
The fair will exhibit projects from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tomsk, Chelyabinsk and other Russian cities, the press service of the Ulyanovsk information centre for nuclear power said.
Projects focus on isotope technologies, products for companies of Russia’s state-run nuclear power corporation Rosatom, radiopharmaceutical medicines and application of isotope technologies in medicine. The fair is targeted at potential consumers and investors.
After projects’ presentations the most promising project will be chosen to be implemented together with the Ulyanovsk technologies transfer centre. The Ulyanovsk region is creating a nuclear innovation cluster that will comprise the scientific research institute of nuclear reactors, a federal high-tech centre of medical radiology, a radiopharmaceutical medicines plant, an innovative technopark and the applied nuclear research centre.
In 2011 the Ulyanovsk region signed an agreement on partnership with the innovative hub Skolkovo. The agreement envisages encouragement of the region’s innovative development and economic modernization and the development of a nuclear innovation cluster.
