International Symposium on Robotics

All over the world, the use of robotics increases the efficiency of production and business processes, improves the working conditions and life quality. The average global level of robotization is 113 robots per 10 000 workers, while in Russia, it amounts to only 6, which is close to the figures Japan had back in 1984. At the same time, Russian developers and programmers are considered highly skilled professionals and are sought-after by foreign companies. 
What is holding back the development of robotics in Russia? How to make working in Russia attractive for the best brains? How to stimulate the robotization of manufacturing and the use of robots in various sectors of the economy? How to promote the transition from R&D to products and their practical application? How should the approach to development of robotics in Russia change in order to unlock the country's intellectual and economic potential? Does Russia need a strategy for the development of robotics?
