Greetings to the participants of the Composites without Borders Forum!

Dear friends, as soon as tomorrow the Composites without Borders Forum will take place at the Skolkovo Technopark. Forum events can also be accessed online at INNOPROM Online https://innoprom.com/calendar-events/innoprom-online-17-november.

In advance of the Forum, Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, addressed the participants with a welcoming speech:

"Composite materials play an important role in the development of modern high-tech industries, making it possible to create globally competitive high-performance products. Besides, one of the industry's main development priorities is to increase the consumption of composites in the massive sectors of the civilian industries. The widespread introduction of composites, materials of low specific weight and high strength at material-intensive production facilities will enable the Russian composite market to attract the necessary investments for its further development in a mid-term perspective."

The Forum participants were also greeted by Alexey Likhachev, Director General, Rosatom State Corporation:

"The composites market is one of the fastest growing in Russia and the world. Its growth is driven by both global trends and the need for imports phase-out. The success in this market is largely due to the development of a complete composites production chain, which we have been building up over the last five years. The expansion of Russia’s market of domestic composites is based on high demand by the businesses in aircraft engineering, shipbuilding, automotive engineering, energy, construction, consumer goods. That is why it is so important to constantly improve competencies of the industry players in the engineering and production of composites, and this is what the Composites without Borders forum aims to promote.
