pavilion G, Innovation Space

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s State of the Nation Address in 2024 provided answers to pressing questions about Russia’s future and outlined the key focuses of the country’s development in the short and medium term. Putin also focused separately on social and infrastructure goals, as well as the task of establishing innovative technological leadership to ensure Russia’s competitiveness in the modern world. The increased attention paid to the regions and the trend of expanding the powers of the governor’s corps also highlight the special role of the regions in shaping Russia’s future. The creation of modern research and technological infrastructure in the regions will drive the innovative development of the entire country.
The Russian government is moving on to the next task of the long-term goal of ensuring technological leadership after overcoming the initial challenges associated with sanctions. The Club’s themes focus on regional approaches to solving problems related to establishing technological sovereignty as well as economic and social development outlined in the Address.
Discussion questions:
• Key focuses for Russia’s future development. Technological sovereignty projects in key areas: support for technological entrepreneurship, infrastructure solutions, and social projects. How does your region see one or more of these focuses being implemented?
• Technology leadership. The role of the regions and effective practices in the federal technological sovereignty strategy.
• Regional diversity. How can regional practices and approaches complement federal development programmes in key areas and enhance their effectiveness? How could a system for exchanging best regional practices and interregional cooperation function to achieve the country's development goals?
• Vision of the future. What regional decisions to negate sanctions pressure could become part of a new long-term development strategy?
