RuSciTech Forum 2014

RuSciTech Forum 2014, ASU, Tempe, Arizona, 10-11 March, 2014

On behalf of the Association of the Russian-Speaking Science and Technology Professionals and the conference Organising Committee we would like to thank all delegates, who took part in RuSciTech Forum 2014 at Arizona State University, Tempe as well as our partners, who supported the successful realisation of this conference: JSC RTI corporation, SkolTech university, the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programmes / Rusnano, Skolkovo Foundation and Open University Skolkovo.

RuSciTech Forum 2014 brought together over seventy Russian-speaking academics, researchers and technology innovators and entrepreneurs in Coor Building on the ASU Tempe campus to share their experiences, plans and opportunities for collaborations with Russia. In talks and discussions delegates presented their projects, exchanged views and suggestions about further development of international partnerships, attracting required expertise and resources and ways of increasing their effectiveness. We are grateful for the valuable input from the Consul General of the Russian Federation in San-Francisco Mr Sergey V. Petrov and representatives of Arizona State University: Prof Robert Nemanich, Prof Willaim T. Petuskey, Mr Gordon McConnell and Dr Anatoli Korkin.

The networking opportunities during the event proved to be successful. Based on the initial feedback from delegates, new contacts and exchanges made during two days of the conference have a good potential for further developments. The summary of the RuSciTech Forum 2014’s conclusions and photographs can be found in the “Summary” section. Please let us know if you have any comments and suggestions by emailing us at

Copies of presentations are available for download in PDF format in the “Speakers” section.
