The TechNet track aims at finding the best solutions in the field of advanced production technologies. The promising projects will get a chance to work together with the representatives of NTI TechNet task force and Industrial partner PJSC "UEK-Saturn".

The TechNet GenerationS track has been conducted in cooperation with the industrial partner of PJSC "UEK-Saturn" since 2016.

The corporate accelerator program is focused on specific goals set by Industrial partners. During the track best teams will pass training and preparation which will allow them to present their project with maximum effectiveness to track partners and companies included in Technet NTI workgroup. Accelerator winners will be able to test their projects on the production testing arena "Smart" Factory of UEK-Saturn, and get to the NTI TechNet projects registry.


1. Starting training is carried out immediately after track BootCamp in order to reveal programs participants'' weak spots, set goals and objectives for each projects, introduce a common project management standard, distribute participants between trackers and mentors and study theoretical materials necessary for further participants' work.
Venue: Skolkovo Innovation center, Moscow.

2. Internship at the Industrial partner base - work with the Industrial partner experts aimed at structuring of the partnership relations with the industrial consumers of their developments, understanding specifics of implementing technologies in the modern high technology production, work on the project development plan together with the track partner specialists.
Venue: PJSC "UEK-Saturn" Rybinsk

3. The final program part is of practice-driven nature aimed at working on the weak points in the project business part, development of skills related to building communication between the start-ups and corporations, preparation of the presentations and development of presentation skills, search for the potential investors and preparation of the participants to the Demo Day. Besides, the participants will find out more about development, evolving and transfer of the advanced production technologies to the industry and estimate the necessity to use these opportunities to develop their projects.
Venue: Institute of Advanced Production Technologies of SPbPU Saint-Petersburg

Between the on-site parts of AP, Track participants will perform their work online under the leadership of personal trackers according to individual working plans.
