VIENNA, March 05, /ITAR-TASS/. A centre for support of Russian innovations was opened under the Russian trade mission in Vienna on Wednesday. Its mission is to help Russian companies and enterprises establish contacts with foreign partners. The centre will coordinate the activities of all Russian trade missions in Europe in the area of promoting Russian advanced technologies.
Such centres will make it possible to find partners to implement Russian developments from the initial stages, Russian Deputy Minister of Economic Development Oleg Fomichev said at the opening ceremony. It is expected that the centre’s partners will include not only research organizations but also companies of the innovation cluster.
“It is a missing link in our cooperation and it will make it possible to focus efforts of research centres, universities, academies of sciences and companies on the establishment of international contacts already at the stage of the elaboration of technical solutions,” he said.
According to Vladimir Artyakov, first deputy director general of Russia’s state corporation Rostech and co-chairman of the Russian-Austrian Business Council, his corporation, which has a number of innovation companies and sectoral institutions, is also ready to join the activities of the innovation support centre. “Transfer of technologies should proceed in both directions,” he noted.
