In November 2013 the Technoprom-2013 international forum was held in Novosibirsk. The goal of the event was to facilitate the transitioning of the Russian economy to a new technological pattern by creating a broad coalition between representatives of modern, high-tech businesses, scientific institutions, and the authorities, and attracting Russian and foreign investors. Among the important events of the forum was the signing of a memorandum of intention between the Siberian department of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SO RAN) and Aviadvigatel (Perm).
Academician Aleksandr Aseev, representing SO RAN and OAO Aviadvigatel chief designer Aleksandr Inozemtsev put their signatures to an agreement on cooperation between the Siberian department of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Perm design firm on joint research work. The memorandum lays out plans for the academic and design bodies to use their efforts to bring Russian aviation engines up to world standards. The scope of functions that must be resolved in the course of implementing the agreement includes the creation of anti-icing coating for aviation engine parts, developing a multi-layer metal composite for a ballistic hardened fan casing, and so on. The next step in this cooperation will be the creation of interdisciplinary working groups to implement each of the set tasks.
