MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
2020 has been a productive year for innovation and technology. In three dozen Moscow technoparks, companies developed new solutions, some of which, for example, began to be actively used in hospitals. Read about what the residents of technoparks created in 2020 in the mos.ru article.
For high-tech companies, technoparks are not only sites where they can develop in any direction – from aerospace technologies and instrumentation to biomedicine and optics. These are practically small scientific cities. They have everything you need to develop and manufacture innovative products: specialized centers for testing and certification, laboratories, “clean rooms”. And in addition, residents receive support from the city in the form of tax breaks, grants and subsidies.
“Last year, the volume of financial support for the residents of technoparks almost doubled. The total amount of approved subsidies amounted to 266 million rubles “, – said
Natalia Sergunina, Deputy Mayor of Moscow.
37 technoparks and five more are being created
There are already 37 technoparks in Moscow, and five more are being created right now. At the end of last year, the Scientific Research Institute of Precision Instruments Joint Stock Company, the oldest enterprise in the space industry in the capital, received the status of a technopark. Today it is part of the Russian Space Systems holding of the state corporation Roscosmos.
In addition, in 2020, eight metropolitan sites were included in the VI National rating of technoparks in Russia. Among them are the Technospark nanotechnology center, the Kalibr, Slava, Strogino, Polyus, Elma and Mosgormash technoparks.

Over two thousand companies are located in all the capital’s technoparks. More than 67 thousand people work in them.
“The status of a technopark resident allows high-tech companies to gain access to a developed scientific and business infrastructure, become part of the innovation community, and also entitles them to financial support from the Moscow Government in the form of subsidies and grants,” said the head
In 2020, residents of technology parks presented new developments. For example, medical equipment manufacturer AB Universal from the Mosgormash Technopark received a registration certificate for the manufacture of individual titanium implants to correct skull defects. The new technology allows for maximum lightweight construction. After manufacturing, the implant is post-processed and sent to the National Medical Research Center for Neurosurgery named after Academician N.N. Burdenko, where he is sterilized before the operation and then installed in place of the damaged fragment of the skull.
Another resident of the Mosgormash Technopark, Ortosoft, a developer of solutions in the field of medicine, has released membranes for the regeneration of cartilage tissue in the joints, which help to accelerate cell regeneration. When the implant is in the human body, it begins to dissolve, gradually being replaced by the tissue of the body itself. This takes about two months. The innovative development can be used in traumatology to eliminate injuries to the arms and legs.
The developers of the new technology take biocompatible components, thanks to which it is possible to regulate the characteristics of the membrane filaments and influence the growth of tissue.
The membrane that the company makes is literally assembled from threads, as opposed to membranes, which are made from animal tissue. The properties of such products are much easier to manage. This is called a freely positioned membrane – the threads are pulled out of a special solution and intertwined at a point specified by the developer.
The company has already received several patents for its developments. The technology has no analogues in Russia. Membranes with similar properties are manufactured in Germany and Switzerland. At the same time, according to the developers, the domestic solution is more flexible and more convenient to use during the operation.
Thanks to the medical equipment manufacturer Fibrasoft, you can now be a little less afraid of going to the dentist. In 2020, the company received permission to manufacture a dental barrier membrane from nanofibers. It allows you to speed up tissue repair and reduce patient pain.
Medical development drivers
At the specialized site “Mosmedpark” in the technopark “Strogino” the company “IEMT” has opened its own production of orthoses made of low-temperature thermoplastic. They are used in various fields of medicine: in traumatology, orthopedics, neurology, sports medicine, for the rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy, as well as in veterinary practice. Thermoplastic is 10 times lighter than usual plaster, breathes, and in orthoses from it you can wash in the shower and even swim in the sea.
“We are the only manufacturers of low-temperature thermoplastic orthoses in Russia. This is such an advanced technology that it allows a person not to stop his life, while the bone fusion proceeds correctly. With them you can carry out physiotherapy, physiotherapy exercises and take X-rays during treatment. If there is a complex fracture with some kind of skin damage, in the process it is possible to treat both the fracture and the wounds at once, which the plaster does not allow doing, ”said Elena Golovchenko, Executive Director of IEMT.
In total, there are 73 resident enterprises in Moscow’s technoparks that specialize in medical and pharmaceutical developments. For example, the Slava Technopark creates reagent kits for molecular genetic research and manufactures systems for PCR testing for coronavirus. One of the residents of the site, the chromatographic research laboratory “Chromsystems Lab”, in 2020 applied for a patent on the method of determining a number of blood parameters.
Medicine is not the only area in which new developments have appeared. Thus, Kaspersky Lab, an anchor resident of the Vodny Stadium technopark, launched the global MDR service. It allows you to detect and eliminate cyber threats of any complexity, including targeted attacks. The service serves hundreds of thousands of nodes for product customers around the world. In 2020, the company also has a solution to quickly and efficiently investigate cyber threats. With it, you can get a comprehensive picture of the execution of an attack.

Moscow actively supports residents of technoparks with tax breaks, subsidies and grants. For example, a special subsidy allows you to offset up to 10 million expenses for the payment of loan interest, leasing or purchase of equipment, as well as the payment of interest on a loan for business development. In 2020, the Moscow Government approved 51 applications for this type of payments with a total amount of more than 104 million rubles.
As representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, residents of technoparks can reimburse part of the costs of staff training, online promotion of their products, participation in exhibitions and export activities. Last year, the Moscow Government approved 78 such applications for a total of 162 million rubles.
In addition to financial support, residents of technoparks can receive assistance from the city in testing innovations. To do this, launched pilot testing program, which allows you to test your developments in government and commercial enterprises. To date, 108 sites have joined the project.
