Technological center of Industrial Internet in mechanical engineering to be launched in the Ulyanovsk region
It will work on the basis of the Ulyanovsk State Technical University.
The Governor Sergey Morozov gave the corresponding order at the meeting with representatives of IT community, the leading enterprises in the fields of aircraft and instrument engineering, as well as ULSTU. The event took place in the Technical University within the VI International Ulyanovsk Youth Innovative Forum on 15 September.
"The Ulyanovsk region is one of the largest and most advanced regions of our country. Today one question becomes even more important - how to use modern Internet technologies for industrial and business development. I am sure that in order to implement our plans, first of all, it is necessary to create a regional center for development of the Industrial Internet, at least in the field of mechanical engineering. We do not have much time to launch the project - no more than in nine months the center must start its work", - Sergey Morozov emphasized.
It is planned that about eight million rubles will be used from the regional budget to purchase equipment for the technological center of Industrial Internet. Funds will be allocated in 2018 within implementation of the state program "Development of Information Society and Electronic Government in the Ulyanovsk Region in 2015-2020". In addition, ULSTU is ready to provide funding for this project, as well as to use extra-budgetary resources.
