The government has set a goal for seven years to increase the production of chips, machine tools and drones
Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced the approval of the concept of technological development of the Russian Federation until 2030. First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov thinksthat in Russia for the first time in 25 years, since the 2000s, "an independent subject of technological policy appears." Among other things, the document.pdf) involves the creation of a production base for high-tech products, including microelectronics, high-precision machine tools, robotics, aerospace technology, drones, software, accelerators and charged particle detectors.
The main objective of the concept is the achievement of "technological sovereignty" with the introduction of "the results of domestic research and development." How explained Prime Minister, the concept involves the creation of an innovative model of economic growth, work on end-to-end technologies, and the launch of industrial megaprojects.
10 megaprojects have already been approved. They are associated with the localization of the production of medicines, medical devices, equipment, the production of machine tool, electronic and radio-electronic products, ships and ship equipment, as well as the development of unmanned aerial systems. The total investment is expected to exceed RUB 100 billion. The list can be expanded in the near future with platforms for industrial poultry farming, as well as for construction and road complexes.
Mr. Mishustin expects that the implementation of the set goals will double the share of domestic solutions, increasing it to almost 75%. According to the government's forecast, the number of specialized organizations in the innovation sector will more than double, to 20,000. At the same time, the authorities want to form a support system for companies "from the stage of inception to the sale to a strategic investor, which will help strengthen technological sovereignty."
In early May, the government submitted a bill to the State Duma aimed at involving small companies in the work to achieve technological sovereignty for the Russian Federation. Establishing criteria for classifying organizations as small technology companies will allow them to use state support measures, the content of which will later be determined by the government.
