The Russian government has given its approval to the Ministry of Economic Development’s Technological Policy, a document developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Education and Science. The new bill is set to be a cornerstone in achieving the president’s outlined goals in his message to the Federal Assembly.

This bill focuses on the long-term planning of technology development over a period of 10-15 years, tailored to the specific needs of various industries. It establishes a standardized terminology and approach from research all the way to product delivery to customers. The bill introduces key definitions such as technological policy, technological sovereignty, high-tech products, critical and breakthrough technologies, qualified customers, and own technology development line.

Maxim Reshetnikov, the head of the Ministry of Economic Development, announced the implementation of a system to oversee the complete cycle of developing indigenous technologies.

“We are developing a unified conceptual framework for all technology stakeholders. Our plans include the introduction of a technology classifier to synchronize and coordinate technology roadmaps across different sectors. Additionally, we are creating a digital counterpart for technology development,” highlighted Reshetnikov.

The government emphasizes that these measures aim to foster the creation of competitive domestic high-tech products and enhance collaboration with production processes.
