Scientific knowledge and the commercialization of nanotechnology development, training and information support innovation processes are not possible without adequate infrastructure. RUSNANO promotes the creation and development of innovation infrastructure, which is designed to reduce the existing economic, research, technology, multi-disciplinary, geographical and organizational boundaries.
Since February 2010, it’s been three open contest for the nanotechnology centers, the results of which are presented here.
In February 2010, during the first open competition for the selection of projects of nanotechnology centers of the 17 applications were selected four winners:
— Nanotechnology Center "Idea" Kazan;
— Multifunctional nanotechnology center "Dubna", Dubna;
— Nanotechnology Center "Nano-and Microsystems" Zelenograd;
— Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Center "Sigma", Tomsk / Novosibirsk
October 25, 2010 winners the second open competition for the selection of projects to create nanotechnology centers of 12 applications were:
— Nanotechnology Center of Ulyanovsk, Ulyanovsk;
— Nanotechnology Center "TEHNOSPARK ‘, Troitsk;
— Nanotechnology Center "Yekaterinburg", Ekaterinburg.
May 18, 2011 a meeting of the tender committee, in the course of which were selected Winners of the third open competition Project Selection of nanotechnology centers. 5 applications were filed, two rejected for technical reasons. The winners after the examination are:
— Closed Joint Stock Company "Center of nanotechnology and nanomaterials Republic of Mordovia", Republic of Mordovia, Saransk;
— "International Education Engineering Center", Moscow;
— Southern Nanotechnology Center, Stavropol, Stavropol.
The total budget of the winning projects of the second open competition, more than 4.6 billion rubles. Investments Corporation amount to 2.3 billion rubles.
Evgeny Evdokimov, RUSNANO Managing Director, noted the high level of preparation of bids, "Applications sent by the participants of the second contest, are well established. They take into account comments, identified by the results of the first competition and expressed at the workshops conducted by RUSNANO. I would particularly like to highlight the well conceived marketing channels, a reasonable part of the claimed equipment and the conditions of its use, as well as legal and organizational scheme of the project, to fully take into account the interests of RUSNANO. "
The total budget of the winning projects third open competition than 6.6 billion rubles, of which the share of the Fund infrastruktrurnyh and educational programs amount to 3.6 billion rubles.
RUSNANO managing director Evgeniy Evdokimov noted the high level of preparation of bids, "Applications sent by third parties to the contest, are well established. They take into account observations that emerge from the early contests and expressed at the workshops conducted by RUSNANO. I would particularly like to highlight the high elaborate scientific and technical component of the winning bids, the quality of the pilot study of start-ups, attracting a large number of research institutions as partners and customers created nanotechnology centers. In addition, the initiators of applications devoted considerable attention to elaboration of technological processes implemented on the planned equipment as well as management equipment and processes in the development and implementation of the ROC. At the same time, continued interest in the contests were announced and confirms compliance with the business model challenges the commercialization of nanotechnology centers and high-tech private companies interested in the development of innovation infrastructure in the framework of the proposed logic.
