In the next three years in the area will create ten innovation infrastructure facilities, to organize the work of the national knowledge network "Nanoelectronics".
In addition, in the Yaroslavl region will be launched two new production, which will perform a co-investor "RUSNANO". In Rybinsk — a project for the production of bulk single crystals of SiC. "RUSNANO" in July approved its funding and scientific support to take on the St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University. ETU has developed an innovative project together with "Rybinsk plant instrumentation." As a result of its launch in Russia will be a major player in the production of synthetic sapphire and silicon carbide that can offer Russian and foreign consumers with products of global quality at a competitive price. It is assumed that due to the volume of innovative products in the region will be about 15 billion rubles a year.
The forum’s largest scientific and industrial structure of the region — "Saturn", YSU them. Demidov, Rybinsk plant instrumentation — presented their projects in the fields of aircraft and rocket engines, integrated electronics and optics.
