The President got introduced to the "Factories of the Future"

The Russian President Vladimir Putin has visited INNOPROM-2017. During the tour through the "Technet" booth, dedicated to National Technological Initiative, RVC and ASI presented to the country's leader the projects of next-generation production sites — "Factory of the Future", from the wake-up control system to the concept of Digital Factory. The RVC website has all the details.

RVC General Director, Alexander Povalko, introduced Vladimir Putin to a unique instrument developed by Perm entrepreneurs — a universal programming environment for industrial robots RCML.

It is reported that the technology makes it possible to facilitate the interaction between robots from different manufacturers and is already in demand by transnational technology companies. Among the partners of the project are two of the four largest world manufacturers of industrial robots: KUKA (Germany) and FANUC (Japan).

The RCML project is recognized as one of the best startups which came from GenerationS accelerator, the largest start-up competition in Russia and Eastern Europe with RVC being its organizer. During the training in GenerationS, the team raised investments, began collaborating with the accelerator's industrial customer, the PJSC "ODK-Saturn", and also joined the Technet working group, which is part of the National Technological Initiative.

When speaking about the development, Alexander Povalko commented that: "Russian startups have significant potential for commercialization and penetration into international markets. The challenge which RVC and other development institutions are faced with is to turn a generation of developers into a generation of tech-up entrepreneurs. To do so, we need to develop their business competencies, provide support in their cooperating with strategic customers from among Russian corporations, as well as in their reaching the international level. This must be done, if we are to develop highly competitive products and take leading positions in the emerging global markets. "

At the international industrial exhibition "INNOPROM-2017" RVC jointly with ASI presented the booth dedicated to NTI's Technet. During the business program, RVC experts will discuss new production for new markets, venture corporate investment and their role in the technology transfer as well as technological education in universities.

The round tables and the discussions will be attended by the RVC general director, Alexander Povalko, the deputy general director, the director of the RVC innovation infrastructure department, Mikhail Antonov, the director of RVC communications department, Georgy Gogolev, the director of the innovation ecosystem department Alexey Gusev.
