Russia and China signed seven agreements on cooperation in innovation - Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation

At the Seventh International Innovation Forum "Pujiang" in Shanghai, seven agreements on cooperation in the innovation sphere between Russia and China were signed. According to the press service of the Ministry of Education and Science, among them is the contract of the Research Institute "GEOTECH" for the supply of geophysical equipment to the PRC and a number of agreements between the Central Research Institute "Prometheus" with Chinese partners on joint research and creation of structural materials and alloys.

The Russian delegation at the forum, which was held on October 25-26, headed by Aide to the President of the Russian Federation Andrei Fursenko. It included more than 130 people: heads of ministries and departments, rectors and vice-rectors of leading universities, scientists, heads of state research centers. The delegation also included representatives of development institutions - RVC OJSC, Skolkovo Foundation and Technopark, VEB-Innovation Foundation, as well as heads of the most successful Russian innovative companies.

According to Andrei Fursenko, Russia and China should now assess the possibility of jointly launching global projects in the field of fundamental science similar in scale to the European International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor or the Large Hadron Collider. "It would be interesting to consider the possibility of this type of projects, which at this stage are costly for Russia and for China, but in the course of working on which many interesting innovative solutions arise," he said. The presidential aide also noted that an example of such cooperation could be the "Nika" project implemented in Dubna, which envisages the construction of a unique particle accelerator for 2016.

According to the participants of the Pujiang Forum, thermonuclear power engineering, high-temperature superconductivity, projects in the field of sea physics and biology, and the joint creation of floating nuclear power plants, the first of which should be launched in the near future, can also become promising areas for cooperation between the two countries.

As the Minister of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China, Wan Gang, noted, Chinese research institutions are now seeking to create a full cycle of implementation of developments - from scientific ideas to practical implementation. “Together with Russia, such projects could be implemented through the creation of advanced development areas, where participants are provided with special conditions for the development of innovation,” said Wan Gang.
