According to the guests, the purpose of their visit – a deepening of theoretical research in the area of ‚Äč‚Äčlocal production systems (including clusters, industrial parks, technopolises, FEZ, municipalities, etc.) and the strengthening of their practical application to improve the territorial organization of the economy and to overcome the global economic crisis.

Though BioTechnopark is a comparatively new platform and has no solid experience in implementing projects but the guests thought highly of the concept of placing at the platform readymade ideas and business. Usually industrial parks are in demand among startups that require investment and time to start a full-fledged business. But primarily the site of BioTechnopark is ready for functioning business, operating manufactures, proven ideas. The Management of the innovation platform does not preclude placing of start-ups at the Common Use Center, but since there will be limited space and companies will have preferences for placement on the site and for use of high-tech equipment, then their selection will be made carefully.
