The primary focus of the Committee is to establish a uniform position for representatives of the business community—members of the RSPP—with respect to innovation policy in Russia.

Session participants approved the Committee's Policy, which outlines the key functions of the Committee, i.e. to create a suitable environment for business activity in the area of innovation, and to facilitate the incorporation of state-of-the-art innovative solutions, standards, and technology into the business operations of members of the RSPP.

For the remainder of 2009, the Committee will concentrate on the development of proposals for legislation improvement that would encourage and facilitate innovative solutions. Specifically, improvements are desired with respect to science and education, stimulating the demand for innovative products, and updating the technical regulation.

Committee members will also discuss how businesses can participate in the scientific and technological forecasting at the national and global level. This activity implies developing technology and product road maps, and defining the priority directions for R&D financing.

The suggestions on these topics will be prepared by the expert group comprised of specialists from the companies and organizations—members of the Committee.

The Innovation Policy Committee is comprised of representatives from the following companies and financial institutions:

* Alfa Group Consortium
* ESN group
* Evraz Group
* IBS Group of Companies
* LUKOIL
* Novolipetsk Steel
* ONEXIM Group
* Renaissance Capital
* Renova Group
* RUSNANO
* Russian Railways
* Severstal
* Sistema
* TMK
* Troika Dialog Group
* VTB Bank

About RUSNANO
The Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) was established in 2007 by the Federal law ¹ 139-FZ to enable Government policy in the field of Nanotechnology.

To accomplish this task, RUSNANO co-invests in nanotechnology industry projects that have high commercial potential or social benefit. Early-stage investment by RUSNANO lowers the risk of its investment partners from the private sector.

RUSNANO participates in building nanotechnology infrastructure, which includes the nanotechnology centers of excellence, business incubators and early stage investment funds. RUSNANO provides scientific and educational programs that are required for its investment projects to succeed, and also supports the popularization of nanoscience and nanotechnology. RUSNANO selects promising spheres for investment based on longer-term foresight created by the leading Russian and world experts.
