More than 30 participants have already joined it. These are universities, scientific organizations and industrial companies. They will work together to create environmental projects.

On the platform of the Moscow Innovation Cluster (MIC) a new intersectoral association “Green Moscow” has appeared. Its participants will jointly develop projects aimed at preserving the environment.

Cross-industry clusters allow Moscow and regional companies to jointly create, promote and replicate large-scale innovative projects. Through clusters, businessmen and scientists can find partners, investors and pilot test sites. In addition, the city provides financial support to the members of the associations.

“The new intersectoral cluster has united more than 30 participants. These are leading technology universities, scientific organizations and industrial companies. They intend to cooperate to implement projects in the field of ecology and biotechnology. Having created such a consortium, we began to form a single city platform for the development of environmental technologies and increasing their contribution to the economy of the capital, “said the head of the capital

Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development Alexey Fursin.

Among the members of the association “Green Moscow” – the Institute of Synthetic Polymer Materials named after NS Enikolopov of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the intersectoral engineering center of the Moscow State Technical University named after N.E. Bauman and others.

The interindustry cluster has already started preparing its first project – the development of modifiers for polymer composite materials. These materials can be applied to a variety of surfaces exposed to the destructive effects of high temperatures. The coating will have fire-resistant properties; when heated, it will not release toxic substances. In addition, the participants plan to work on solutions that will reduce industrial emissions into the atmosphere, as well as reuse household waste.

The creation of the association was initiated by the D.I. Mendeleev. “We see it as our task to create a strong research infrastructure and educational programs within the Green Moscow cluster that will unite the interests of a large circle of participants and become a platform for launching new complex projects in the field of ecology. The university will provide professional expertise, advanced technologies, modern laboratory facilities and access to an extensive partner network in the regions and abroad, ”said the rector of the university, Alexander Mazhuga.

In total, there are nine cross-industry clusters operating on the platform, which include about 350 organizations. They work in the fields of artificial intelligence, composite materials, biopharmaceuticals and medical technology, traumatology and orthopedics. Both legal entities and individual entrepreneurs are offered to join the associations. You can learn more about clusters and apply for participation at MIC portal.

Moscow innovation cluster – a platform for the introduction of innovations and the development of cooperation between large corporations, industrial enterprises, small and medium-sized businesses, educational and scientific organizations, development institutions and the city. Cluster members have access to tools, services and support measures for the development of innovative projects. It includes more than 20 thousand organizations. The project is supervised by the capital Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development together with Department of Information Technology.
