Import substitution is based not only on materials and technologies used in products but also high quality original design. Design solutions provide an impetus to development of sectors and, consequently, Russia’s economic security and sovereignty. What are the industrial design trends today? How to ensure effective collaboration between manufacturers and designers? How design tools make it possible to create competitive advantages for Russia-made goods? Can design facilitate import substitution? How to realize the potential of the best design schools in projects for the real sector of the economy?
