Public consultations are an open website for expert assessment and finalization of the projects of technology competitions of the NTI. The purpose of the consultations is to give an opportunity to representatives of business, engineers, scientists, startups and specialized universities to comment on market prospects, technological advantages as well as the relevance of the technologies developed within the framework of the NTI competitions. One of the tasks of consultations is a prompt collection of the questions and dissemination of the answers concerning organization of technology competitions of the NTI.
Users of the website are invited to discuss the questions about the relevance of the technological barrier as well as to contribute to the technological and market analysis of the NTI competitions. The participants of the Public consultations will share their knowledge about the existing devices with specifications above the technology barrier and the Russian companies which are potentially capable of overcoming this barrier.
In the context of market analysis the users will answer the questions, at what markets, what products and services will demand the devices and technologies, as well as the development of what new solutions will be promoted by the devices designed by the participants and their further modifications.
Technology competitions of the National Technology Initiative are the competitions of technologies and innovative products including breakthrough technology solutions of complex scientific and technological problems implemented for overcoming the technological barriers in priority sectors and markets of the NTI and ensuring Russia's competitiveness at high-tech markets. The winner of the technology competition will receive a cash prize for a breakthrough solution to a significant problem.
