PRELIMINARY PROGRAMME*

Day One, 14 November 2013

10.00-12.00    Main Hall. Plenary meeting

Cluster strategies and investments in regional development

It has become clear in the last five years that clusters are quite capable of being the driving force of economic growth in Russia. Investments in clusters produce a multiplicative effect on the development of the economy and, as is evident from global practice, they are like magnets that attract ever new investments, including foreign investments. In so doing, clusters facilitate the introduction of advanced technology and the development of innovative businesses, thereby securing the stability of regional economies. What are the main federal budget tools for supporting clusters? How is tax regulation applied to cluster residents? What incentives can regional and local authorities offer to clusters? How is the Russian Ministry of Economic Development planning to supervise innovation clusters in the regions? What do investors count on in the context of development strategy?

Plenary meeting speakers:

  • Nikitin Gleb Borisovich, first Deputy Minister of industry and trade of the Russian Federation
  • Fomichev Oleg Vladislavovich, state Secretary-Deputy Minister of economic development of the Russian Federation
  • Morozov Sergey Ivanovich, Governor of Ulyanovsk Region
  • Trushko Mikhail Stanislavovich, General Director, Special Economic Zones
  • Bortnik Ivan Mikhailovich, Executive Director, Association of Innovative Regions of Russia
  • Rogachyov Mikhail Borisovich, Director, Russian Fund of Technological Development

 

12.00  Coffee break

 

12.20-13.50    Expert panel

Cluster foresight. Technological modernisation in roadmaps

Cluster development has been recognised as the most promising area for concerted government, business, scientific and educational efforts in Russian regions. But payoff from cluster development should only be expected in 10 to 15 years on average. Therefore, foresight technology can be used to provide long-term forecasts of scientific, technological and social development within various models of clusters. Developing and presenting a roadmap is a method of presenting foresight results. What is the right way to make a list of events, deadlines and executives in charge of implementing the decisions to create a cluster? How can business planning be used on a global scale in cluster strategy management? How can cluster efficiency be gauged? How can a cluster be estimated at the level of a constituent entity of the Russian Federation and at city level? What are the risks involved in implementing cluster policy?

Speakers:

  • Shadrin Artyom Yevgenievich, Director, Innovative Development Department, Russian Ministry of Economic Development
  • Dubrovin Yevgeny Igorevich , Chairman, SMART Concept Partnership Council; Leading Expert, Siberia 2030 Foresight Club, Novosibirsk; Foresight and Development Consultant, Novosibirsk IT Cluster
  • Afanasiev Georgy Edgardovich, Director, noncommercial partnership for examination in the field of industry and energy "Expert club"
  • Dolin Yevgeny Vladimirovich, Member of the Board, General Director, NP Led Manufacturers and Systems on their basis
  • Perfiliev Alexander Mihailovich, General Director, OJSC "Corporation of development of the Vologda Region"

 

 

12.20-13:50     Roundtable

Engineering clusters. How can the government support producers against the backdrop of falling demand?

The car disposal program launched during the recession has proved quite effective in supporting Russian manufacturers. Russia's accession to the WTO and the current state of the Russian and global economy has made the government give further thought to ways of supporting domestic producers. What support measures with regard to car-makers, rail car manufacturers and aircraft-makers are the authorities considering? When will they come into effect? What volume of funds will be needed? Will these measures help the producers? What proposals do they have? Can funds for the government support measures announced come from the federal budget?

Moderator: Nadezhda Frolova, Head, Transport and Engineering Division, PRIME Business News Agency

 

13.50-14.40  Lunch

 

14.40-16.10  Expert panel

Creating industrial parks and technoparks as infrastructure for cluster development

The creation and functioning of industrial parks and technology parks helps different regions to balance their economic levels. Owing to a more rational deployment of manufacturing facilities, some regions are developing into scientific and industrial centres with a relatively high standard of living. How can clusters use facilities in technopark areas effectively? How to apportion the available infrastructure for use by emerging clusters? Which technoparks have already become the nucleus of a cluster? What aspects need to be considered when creating innovational infrastructure? How are small businesses and infrastructure integrated around major projects? What are developers' expenditures on infrastructure facilities?

Speakers:

  • Ishchenko Igor Vladimirovich, General Director, Technopolis Moscow
  • Afonin Viktor Viktorovich, General Director, Strategic Investment Agency, St. Petersburg
  • Esipov Yuriy Aleksandrovich, Head of the Department of Economics Unit Financial and economic development of the Administration of Orel Region
  • Olga Arkhangelskaya, Partner, Head of the Real Estate, Infrastructure and Government Group in the CIS, Ernst & Young
  • A representative of MR Group

 

14.40-16.10   Roundtable

Auto-making clusters

Clusters are capable of significantly boosting the competitiveness of auto-makers and the automobile industry as a whole. So far, only the labor-intensive, albeit technologically simple, production cycles have been transferred to Russia. But the majority of units assembled in Russia are brought from elsewhere, which reflects the general global trend with regard to developing countries. However, Russian regions with high scientific and technological potential can hope for a higher degree of localised manufacturing. How is the modernisation of auto component businesses proceeding? How are quality management problems addressed? What modern managerial technologies can be applied in Russia? How should the engineering potential of businesses be promoted?

NEW!!! Modern car manufacturers' requirements with regard to the introduction and promotion of QMS and "lean manufacturing." Suppliers' problems in the introduction of ISO/TS 16949 and "lean manufacturing" methods. Report by Andrei Kudryashov, Head, Centre for the Introduction of Lean Production and QMS Methods, Samara Region Association of Auto Component Manufacturers

Speakers:

  • Draganov Valery Gavrilovich, President, Avtotor Holding
  • A representative of the Nizhny Novgorod Industrial Innovation Cluster of Auto-Making and Petrochemistry
  • A representative of SIBUR Holding

 

16.10                 Coffee break

 

16.30-18.0                  Expert panel

Cluster marketing

Clusters afford a strong advantage for business development as well. Any region is capable of encouraging cluster development by the skilful use of local specifics, a source of regional competitiveness. But the development of clusters in Russia is held back by clusters' low level of information and marketing support for residents. Does every cluster need its own branding? Who should be responsible for this and what needs to be done? Which cluster development projects announced between 2008 and 2012 failed to be implemented and why? What marketing strategies are used to promote new clusters? Is there a shortage of communication culture? How should clusters react to a drop in demand for a cluster's products during a global crisis?

Speakers:

  • Veselov Ilya Borisovich, General Director, GAU «regional development Agency of Kaluga Region»
  • Lysov Alexander Vladimirovich, Chairman, Economic Development Department, Lipetsk Administration
  • Artamonova Yulia Sergeevna, Partner, Cluster Consulting Group; formerly General Director, Cluster Development Centre, Penza Region
  • Goland Mikhail Yurievich, Department Head, Department for Private-Public Partnership in the Innovation Sector, Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge, Higher School of Economics National Research University

 

16.30-18.00    Expert panel

Housing construction for cluster development

An important element of cluster development policy is building houses for the staff of resident entities. Housing construction is inevitably linked with the quality of life in a potential cluster and can be a way of attracting labor resources. How much funding is provided for housing construction? How can you stop construction costs from growing too high? Why has capital development been removed from the list of potential subsidy beneficiaries? Do clusters need affordable housing? How are the Federal Fund for the Promotion of Housing Construction and the Amenities and Utilities Fund involved in developing housing and utilities for clusters? How will the social infrastructure be organised?

Moderator:  Nabatnikova Olga Gennadyevna, Head of editorial Real Estate News, RIA Novosti

Speakers:

  • Zhidkin Vladimir Fedorovich, Head of Department of development of new territories of Moscow, Government of Moscow
  • Sysoev Anatoly Vasilyevich, President of the Ural construction cluster
  • Lavrikova Julia Georgievna, Deputy Director of the Institute of Economics

 

18.00 End of the first day

 

Day Two, 15 November 2013

10.00-11.45  Expert panel

Investing Russian National Wealth Fund money into infrastructure: opportunities and risks

Russian President Vladimir Putin told the St. Petersburg Economic Forum that Russia would invest 450 billion roubles from the National Wealth Fund (NWF) into infrastructure projects on a repayable basis. The first three of these projects are the Moscow-Kazan high-speed rail line, the Central Ring Road (CRR), and the modernisation of the Trans-Siberian Railway. Given the extremely long pay-off period in the case of the Baikal-Amur Railway (BAM) and the Trans-Siberian Railway, Russian Railways has suggested incorporating the NWF money into its charter capital. The sum will be serviced by dividends and tax deductions to the federal budget and will be repaid to the NWF following Russian Railways' putative privatisation. What other government and private investment tools could be used in infrastructure projects? How can we guarantee that the NWF funds invested into these projects will result in stable profits and eventually be repaid? What is the best method of risk control? Who will assess the projects and how? What governmental management models are most effective in encouraging private investments? How should major infrastructure expenditures be managed with an eye to maximum payoff?

Moderator: Gleb Bryansky, Editor-in-Chief, PRIME Business News Agency

 

10.00-11.45  Roundtable

Personnel potential of new jobs

Labor resources are, in effect, the crucial factor in securing competitive advantages in every cluster. For the time being, however, Russian workforce is not highly rated, the consequence of the outflow of skilled labour from industries in the late 1990's. A shortage of engineers is coupled with personnel shortages in blue-collar occupations. Russia has numerous universities, hundreds of educational institutes and academies, but science is not developing effectively for a number of structural reasons.. The business community is only just beginning to invest in science, as a result of its interest in innovations. Have major research institutes and universities become cluster hubs? How can university education be integrated with cluster activities? What is the pattern of cooperation between businesses and educational institutions? How can retraining and advanced training for cluster managers be co-financed from the federal budget? Do clusters require certain professional standards? What social effect do clusters produce in the regions?

Speakers:

  • Vasiliev Sergey Alekseevich, Head, Main Directorate for Modernisation and Strategic Initiatives under the Governor and the Government of the Khabarovsk Territory
  • Baryshnikov Marina Yurievna, PhD in Pedagogy, Lecturer, Deputy Executive Director, National Training Foundation
  • Rat Aleksandr Alekseevich, Director of the Nonprofit partnership "Dubna"

 

10.00-10.45        Roundtable

Pharmaclusters

Modern production levels and a smart regional approach to developing the pharmaceutical industry and innovative medicine can attract domestic and foreign investors. What can be deemed successful public-private cooperation? Are pharmaclusters in fact localisations of foreign companies in Russia? How does a balanced pharmaceutical and biomedical R&D chain work? Should Russia only focus on producing medicines? Should production of innovative drugs be launched outside of clusters?

Moderator:  Kochetkova Ludmila, editor of the Centre for social ratings, RIA Novosti

Speakers:

  • Tolstobrov Sergey Sergeevich, Head of Department of economic development of the Kirov Region
  • Korzinov Oleg Mikhailovich, Director, Innovation Development Centre, Northern Biological and Pharmaceutical Cluster
  • Girina Marina Borisovna, Chair, Commission for Production Clusters, Public Council under St. Petersburg Governor; President, Cluster of Medical and Environmental Engineering and Biotechnologies
  • A representative of the Pushchino Biotechnology and Innovation Territorial Cluster
  • Semikin Evgeny Alexandrovich, General Director, Agency of investment and development of Volgograd Region

 

11.45               Coffee break

 

12.15-14.00        Expert panel

Legislation for hi-tech business. Intellectual property protection

Lack of stability in legislation is a serious problem not only for hi-tech business, but also for the business community as a whole. What new IT taxes are likely to be legislated? How does the state manage the rights to the results of intellectual activity? How are disputes with regard to exclusive rights to the results of intellectual activity considered in court? What are the alternatives in settling intellectual property disputes? Who is the consumer of IT innovations? Is there any fight for innovations?

Speakers:

  • Vladimir Meshcheryakov, Counsellor, the Firm «Gorodissky and Partners»
  • A representative of innovative territorial cluster «Development of information technologies, radio electronics, instrument making, communication facility and telecommunication St. Petersburg»

 

12.15-14.00   Roundtable

Tourist clusters

Russia's long-term socioeconomic development concept includes plans to create tourist and recreational clusters in areas with unique natural resources and landscapes and with rich historical and cultural heritage. What is the basis on which tourist clusters are formed? How should tourist infrastructure be organised, including tour operators, hotels, transportation companies and public catering facilities? How can security be ensured for the tourist business? How to form and uphold a positive image of a region? How to promote a tourist cluster's brand? Can sports tourism become a popular phenomenon in Russia?

New!!! Urban development and marketing strategies involved in establishing tourist and recreation clusters (as seen with the Ryazansky tourist and recreational cluster)

Speakers:

  • Kurbatova Anna Sergeevna, Director, Institute of Comprehensive Territorial Development

  • Schneider Alexander Grigorievich, Professor, Scientific Director, JSC «Scientific research centre of innovative technologies»
  • Barkin Andrei, Director of strategic and international programs, «SKOLKOVO»
  • A Representative of  The "Resorts Of The North Caucasus"

 

12.15-14.00   Roundtable

Creative and educational clusters

With their involvement in urban development and promotion, art clusters can be an important creative force. But in creative industries, cluster formation must happen "from below." Can all former factories be turned into a creative cluster and what are the reasons for doing so? What resources do creative clusters have? How can creative potential be invigorated and used to serve a cluster's goal?

Educational clusters will help remedy personnel shortages. In addition, clusters of this kind can be a way to develop various major programmes or projects. How important is motivation and freedom of choice in science, education and innovation business for young people? How to attract the best teachers, academics and students from different regions and countries? How can an educational cluster interact with major corporations, financial institutions and the authorities?

Speakers:

  • Irina Korobyina, Director, Alexei Shchusev Museum of Architecture (museum cluster)
