Around 400 delegates from Russia, France and Germany have signed up to participate in the event including a number of academicians from the Russian Academy of Sciences, 24 professors as well as future and present Ph.D.’s.
For two days, the NPO Saturn training center, RSATU and the Rybinsk public cultural center will become global discussion fields for the forum participants.
The key items on the forum agenda that will be treated in the frame of the forum’s 9 topic sections will be the technological and tooling preparation with relation to mechanical engineering (the “Parts, tools and tooling coating technology” section), design and machining of new materials (the “New materials based on polymer, intermetallic and ceramic matrix” section), production management (the “Gas turbine engines repair development technology” section), production process automation (the “Innovative production processes. High-speed machining of complex-profile parts”. Welding. Improvement of surface treatment precision and quality” section), modern business development directions (the “Engineering and reengineering of the modern, high-tech production set-up’s” section), collaboration with small and medium businesses (the “Outsourcing. From business to business” section), human resources training (the “Education for a technological leader” section); the forum participants will also study the principals of interaction between the industrial and public-economic mass media and the companies (the “Hyperlinked world of technology” section).

In the frame of the forum, a ceremony of bestowing the awards upon the winners of a dedicated “The youth in science” contest, which was administered extramurally between the students of technological higher learning institutions, will take place. The contest winners will receive memorable prizes while the content of their reports will be published in a scientific magazine included in the HCC (Highest certification commission) list.
Also, as part of the forum-related events, there will be an open project session conducted by the Agency for strategic initiatives dedicated to the development of dual education programs in the territory of the Yaroslavl region. The international technological forum “Innovations. Technologies. Manufacturing” held for the first time in Rybinsk as a foundation for discussions and practical use of breakthrough technologies, modern knowledge and generation of new ideas facilitating dynamic development of the “Gas turbine machinery and power engineering” territorial cluster promises to become traditional, which will ultimately help organize a new industrial infrastructure of the Yaroslavl region and its contacts on the global market.
