I would like to welcome the attendees and hosts of the 5th International Forum “Innovations in Road Construction”.
Over the five years of its existence, the forum has become a leading venue that brings together entrepreneurs, scientists, experts, students, government officials and corporations from different countries and regions of Russia.
The development of the existing innovation management system, the elaboration of its main elements, and the improvement of the functioning mechanisms of legal, administrative, scientific and technological regulation remain being the key priorities of the state in the context of implementing large-scale national projects. Special attention is paid to the elaboration of the system of interaction in coordinating the development and stimulating the introduction of innovations with the constituent entities of the Russian Federation.
Forum participants will have to find answers to questions related to the effective implementation of innovations in the road sector and their impact on the quality and durability of our roads. Entrepreneurs, young scientists and engineers will talk about innovative technologies created to bring the road infrastructure to a higher level in the short run.
The agenda of the forum includes a discussion of the professional education of road workers and the training of highly qualified personnel. After all, it's a person who plays the lead in acceleration of technological development. And in our country there are a lot of people who offer unique ideas and solutions able to propel Russia to the top positions.
I wish you a fruitful discussion, interesting meetings and all the best!
M. Akimov - Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation
On behalf of the Council of Federation and in my personal capacity I would like to welcome all attendees and guests of the 5th International Forum “Innovation in Road Construction”!
Road construction meeting the update requirements isessential for reliable and safe road connections between cities and regions of our country. Almost every sector of economy including industry, agriculture and social sphere depends on quality and efficiency of roadbuilders’ work. After all their labor has a direct impact on improving life quality of each person.
The International Forum “Innovations in Road Construction” has traditionally been a unique venue where the innovative approaches are discussed and envisioned, the coordinated decisions are made by representatives of government, business and public organizations.
I am confident that the forum will give us a good opportunity to work out a set of consolidated proposals aimed at improving legislation at all levels.
I wish all Forum attendees rewarding work, professional achievements and success in attainment of desired goals!
E. Bushmin - Deputy Chairman Federation Council Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation
On behalf of the Ministry of Transport and on my personal capacity, I greet all the participants, guests and organizers of the forum “Innovations in Road Construction”! I congratulate you on the fifth anniversary of this successful international platform for the dialogue of representatives of science, government and business.
Active work on creation of a system for assimilating innovations in the road sector is conducted more recently – the last 10-12 years. Within this time, an appreciable package of documents regulating innovative activities has been adopted, an organizational management structure has been created, and a set of efforts supporting and stimulating innovative processes has been carried out.
The process of formation and improvement of mechanisms for introduction of innovations in the industry does not stop. The most pressing question today is how to improve the integrated effectiveness of the management system. The ongoing work is aimed at finding possible ways to increase the innovative attractiveness of the road construction industry. We need to consistently accept management challenges of current efficiency level analysis, problems detection and finding the best ways of their solution.
I wish all attendees of the forum meaningful discussions and rewarding work!
Yevgeny Ditrikh - The Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation
Highly-regarded organizers, forum members and guests!
On behalf of the Administration of the urban resort Sochi, I greet you and thank you for choosing our city for the fifth consecutive time to hold such an essential event for the road construction industry.
Post-Olympic Sochi has become a significant media information platform for a wide range of scientific, economic, sporting and mass cultural events. Changed infrastructure of the city and prolific sub-tropical climate have made it highly attractive for visitors from throughout our country and from far abroad.
Yet, I would like to highlight that such an urban development would be unachievable without road builders who had implemented the most audacious infrastructure projects.
Our city is part of the “Safe and high-quality roads” project. It is impossible to build such roads without applying technologies on each stage – from projecting to maintenance.
The opportunity to talk over different evaluations, approaches and priorities in addressing tasks on development of the Russian highway system on the coming forum is seen to be of the most immediate interest and use.
I sincerely wish you successful and meaningful work on the V International Forum “Innovations in Road Construction” and continued march and prosperity of the undertaking.
Well-being and good luck in all your endeavors!
A. Pakhomov - Mayor of Sochi
On behalf of The State Company “Avtodor” I welcome the participants and guests of the 5th International Forum “Innovations in Road Construction”!
Promotions of innovations in road industry involves a range of activities: the use of modern high-performance equipment, the improvement of production technologies, the application of new materials corresponding to the level of traffic load and providing high durability and reliability of the roads, the introduction of the monitoring systems of road structure condition, the creation of safe and convenient infrastructure.
The accumulated experience in the construction of highways reveals that today to create a progressive technical solution is not enough; testing of technologies does not guarantee their wide use. A whole system of measures is needed for their effective implementation. This system includes improvement of information support and regulatory framework, effective funding, training of skilled personnel, adequate management.
“Avtodor” consistently introduces innovative solutions in its activities. Here are just a few examples: soil stabilization of weak subgrade during the construction of the M-11 highway, introducing the base of standards in high-speed roads design, construction and operation, interoperability, which allows using one transponder on all the toll roads of Russia. All this helps us to build more durable and comfortable roads.
To achieve more challenging tasks we for the 5th time assemble leading road industry experts, representatives of authority and science. The Forum gives us an opportunity to summarize the results achieved and the experience gained in recent years, and to chart the course for further development of innovative road industry.
I am confident that the 5th Forum will stick in our memory by significant discussions and productive meetings, and will add to promotion of challenging ideas and initiatives.
I wish all of us good luck and efficient work!
Petushenko V.P. - Chairman of the Board
