Operators of the support measures of the national program “Digital Economy” named the leaders in the development of end-to-end digital technologies in the Russian Federation. Spider Group is recognized as one of the leaders in the field of augmented and virtual reality.
The national development program of Russia identifies seven of the most important areas of digital technologies: artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, novel manufacturing technologies, wireless communication, distributed registry systems, robotics and sensor components, quantum technologies. In 2019 a competitive selection was conducted by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, the Fund for the Promotion of Innovations, JSC RVC, the Russian Fund for the Development of Information Technologies and the Skolkovo Fund. They reviewed over 1300 applications.
Development of each of the fields will take place according to a special plan — a roadmap from the supervising organisation. In the field of augmented and virtual reality, the Far Eastern Federal University became the supervisor. The deadline for implementing the plan is defined as until 2024, and private capital will prevail in the program’s budget: 38.1 billion rubles should come from extrabudgetary sources and the government budget will provide only 28.2 billion.
Program participants who submitted applications in 2019 also submitted detailed business plans of the projects to the program. Each leader went through many months of rigorous selection.
Spider Group and its colleagues will receive grants for the implementation of the announced solutions. As a result of the program, a new generation of innovative businesses will be born, which will determine Russia’s technological leadership at the global stage and will repeatedly compensate provided support to the government budget.
