Maxim Akimov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation: 'Today, important structural changes are taking place in the world: the industrial model of development is being replaced by the knowledge economy, digital technologies are becoming the main factor in socio-economic growth. Russia has all the necessary resources for active inclusion in the global technological agenda. This work requires a serious transformation of the interaction system of all participants in the innovation ecosystem, including large corporations and development institutions. In this sense, the Forum is a strategic platform where new models of state technological policy will be designed.'
