The partners of the forum are UEC, RVC, the Club of science and innovation directors, Siemens PLM Software, Russian Gas Turbines, the AB Universal engineering company, the Skolkovo robotics engineering center and UEC-Gas turbines. The forum will be attended by the representatives of the Russian academy of sciences, the Department for promotion of the economy of Saxony and the Fraunhofer Institute (Germany), the Safran Group (France), General Electric and other leading companies.
Among the forum participants are the heads of the state executive authorities, representatives of the growth institutes, Russian and international business, scientific and research-and-development centers.
For a three-day period, the Rybinsk P.A. Solovev State Aviation Technical University (RGATU), the NPO Saturn training center and the Rybinsk sociocultural center will be transformed into discussion venues for the event participants.
One of the highlights of the Second international technological forum is the research and technology conference dedicated to the 100 years since the birth of the chief designer P.A. Kolesov, which will inaugurate the forum. Professors, scientific associates, undergraduate and postgraduate students of technical higher learning institutions and research organizations from Moscow, Kazan, Samara, Perm, Ufa, scientists and specialists representing the organizations and companies integrated in the Rostec State Corporation, active and potential contractors for R&D activities in the interests of the gas turbine engine manufacturing industry have been invited to take part in the forum.
The second day of the ITF-2015 will start with a plenary session under the theme “The vision of the future. Foresight of the science and technology development. Open innovations”. The event will be attended by the representatives of the Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Russian Federation, the governor of the Yaroslavl Region Sergey Yasterbov, NPO Saturn chief executive officer, head of the Yaroslavl branch of the Russian mechanical engineers union, chairman of the Gas turbine machinery and power engineering innovation territorial cluster Ilya Fedorov, RGATU president Valeriy Poletaev, acting mayor of Rybinsk Leonid Mozheiko, a delegation representing the Land of Saxony (Germany), executives and technical experts representing the companies of UEC including its Commercial Engines Division as well as subsidiaries and partners of NPO Saturn.
During the plenary session a lecture on the open innovations as the main trend in modern development of the corporate sector will be delivered by the deputy chairman of the Rostec research and technology council Alexander Kashirin. Olga Ospennikova, deputy general director of the all-Russian research-and-development institute for aviation materials (VIAM) will speak about the materials and production processes of the new generation in engine manufacturing. In the meantime, Victor Bespalov, general manager of Siemens PLM Software will present innovative solutions in the field of mechanical engineering while Albert Efimov, head of the Skolkovo robotics engineering center, will share with the attendees about the prospects of development of the robotics in Russia and elsewhere in the world.
The governor of the Yaroslavl Region Sergey Yastrebov, speaking about the interaction of the regional government with the industrial companies noted: “The necessary condition for the cluster to grow stronger is the availability of a well-established discussion venue, which the International technological forum serves to be. It holds all the opportunities for discussing the topical issues related to the development of the mechanical engineering industry and modeling of collaboration patterns between the companies seeking to create innovative products and services.”
The forum, in a way the epicenter of breakthrough technologies, state-of-the-art knowledge and emergence of new industrial ideas, is now entering into a good tradition. The results of the first forum hosted by Rybinsk in 2014 have confirmed the topicality of the chosen format and problems posed to the research and technology community. According to Ilya Fedorov, NPO Saturn CEO: “NPO Saturn has been conducting organizational transformations for several years now to be able to pass over to a new business paradigm based on open innovations, and we expect the 2015 forum to be a venue for open innovations for the companies in the Gas turbine machinery and power engineering cluster as it applies to the production and technologies.”
The key items which will be treated in the frame of the forum themed sections are the development of additive manufacturing, the use of polymer composite materials, high-temperature materials, innovative technological solutions in the production of gas turbine engines, the modern organization of the industrialization process, outsourcing and collaboration with small- and medium-sized companies and training of personnel. The Eighth production system transformation workshop will be held as part of the forum activities under the sponsorship of United Engine Corporation.
The main source of innovation and new technological solutions for the industry are the scientific organizations whose representatives, in turn, will be the keynote speakers at the forum and designers of joint projects with the industrial companies.
The forum participants will have an opportunity to get familiar with the market development trends, prospects of implementing new projects in the field of the state-of-the-art production processes, share their experience and find new partners.
