Panel Session

In partnership with ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation

At present, most developed countries are actively moving towards a digital economy, where the main drivers of development are digital technologies and software. Technology is becoming more complex, and the digital transition is changing the architecture of production, which is having a tremendous impact on the development of industry and the economic growth of a country. Under the pressure of the mighty digital, some industry areas, such as trade, banking, and tourism have already transformed. Now the turn has come for high-tech primary industries, which involve complex production methods, such as the nuclear industry. What are the main trends in digital transition that already exist today? What role will ROSATOM play in the global technological agenda? What is the essence of the digital economy for the nuclear industry? Is it in the nuclear industry’s power to become a driver of the development of digital technologies? Is it possible to extrapolate the experience of the digitalisation of the nuclear sector to other industries? What economic effects can one expect from digitalisation?
