Authorities hope to receive 100 million federal funds in 2017 for the INO Tomsk project

25 January 2017 15:59

Regional authorities expect to receive at least 100 million rubles from the federal government for SMART Technologies Tomsk innovation cluster within the frameworks of INO Tomsk project, Andrey Antonov, Deputy Governor on economy, told journalists on Wednesday.

It was earlier reported that the council of priority project “Development of leading innovation clusters in global investment appeal” has selected 11 clusters to receive support to help them grow even faster and become a part of global value chains. Innovation cluster SMART Technologies Tomsk won the contest for the priority project by the Ministry of Economic Development.

“The Concept is developing, which results in more and more documents at the federal level. <…> We hope that the government, once it adjusts the budget in spring, will allocate funds for our cluster-related policy. <…> This means an additional federal funding of 100+ million rubles that we could use for export-oriented companies of our cluster”, Andrey Antonov said.

According to him, in 2017 the federation planned to provide 11 clusters with 1.25 billion rubles, and in 2018-2019 another 3 billion or so.

The Deputy Governor added that a range of activities is being implemented in various directions within the frameworks of INO Tomsk project.

“Adjustments to design estimate documentation are being finalized to reconstruct the landing strip of the airport, we managed to allocated funds for [the repair of] Kamaevka-Asino road within the project. Construction of a TSU dormitory is about to begin. Medicine related ideas are being discussed. One of the risks is, of course, the uncertainty about federal funding <…> but we hope that the plans will still be implemented”, Mr. Antonov noted.

According to the regional white house, 11 promising markets have been identified in the frameworks of SMART Technologies with annual growth rate from 7 to 40%: computer vision, telehealth, industrial robotics, probiotics, pharmaceutical ingredients, etc.

It is planned that beginning from 2017, companies of the cluster will present their product lines on these markets. To make it happen, for each of the directions a project alliance of companies, universities and scientific organizations is assembled.

As a reminder, the updated INO Tomsk concept includes five clusters: Advanced industry, Science and education, Technology innovation and new business, Smart and comfortable city, Business environment. The cost of activities of the updated project will exceed 200 billion rubles by 2020, of which 65% - business investment, 35% - funds from federal and regional budgets.

In the end of 2014, it became known that the institutes of the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations from all over Russia will take part in INO Tomsk project, and in January the concept was approved by Prime-Minister Dmitriy Medvedev. In the middle of February Arkadiy Dvorkovich, Deputy Prime-Minister, visited Tomsk to discuss INO Tomsk project.
