Imagine a competition with a gold medal at the finish backed up by a substantial cash prize. This is not a payment for the R&D, not the purchase of any results of the teams. A task is set to the participants that has not yet been solved anywhere in the world, and the one who has overcome the barrier, who has created the best product, receives a significant cash prize. In the USA, a similar programme allowed launching private astronautics: winner of the Ansari X Prize competition launched a private rocket into space. Technology competitions are a very interesting story. I think we shall have a completely unique experience.

Participation itself, and not even a victory, is the beginning and a possibility to attract funds into your projects including those that are not directly related to the competition. Those who do not participate in the competition will get a hope and a dream. We have a lot of talents, we need to give them a possibility to believe in themselves and open up opportunities for the growth.

Technology competitions are one more tool for involving talents into the National Technology Initiative. The winners will be able to form teams united by super-sophisticated tasks on overcoming the technological barriers that will promote their solutions to the global market. The competitions will allow attracting much greater investments in the development than the prize fund amount spent.
