, Temporarily Acting Governor of the Yaroslavl Region: "We expect the IV Forum to bring new ideas which will be included in the elaborated development roadmap of the Yaroslavl Region as an NTI region.  Obviously, this roadmap will be based on the "Factory of the Future's Test Bed" project of NPO Saturn, one of the industrial leaders in the Yaroslavl Region. It may become the main development trends of the Region". The objective of the regional management is to create the environment comfortable for business on the NTI markets in order to make the Yaroslavl Region a pilot one for the expansion of new generation high-tech competences among innovative small and medium-size businesses and in high-tech industries".
