UrFU is an initiator and participant of many large-scale projects which contribute to innovations development in Ural Federal Area and Russia as a whole.
In Ural University Technopolis which is being constructed in Ekaterinburg the following establishments will be located:
The part of technopolis is a technopark of high technologies where small innovation enterprises with UrFU participation are located.
Regional Engineering Center
Large-scale engineering center oriented to machine-building branches is being developed in Ekaterinburg by UrFU in conjunction with the Government of Sverdlovsk Area and several industrial corporations. At present the priority directions of Regional Engineering Center activity are laser and additive technologies.
Cyclotron Center of Nuclear Medicine
Modern production and scientific-research complex aimed to obtain short-living isotopes for further efficient application in medical diagnostics is being developed by UrFU on the basis of Physical-Technical Institution. New cyclotron TR-24 (Canada) will allow supplying all the diagnostic installations of Sverdlovsk Area with radiopharmaceuticals. Here it is also planned to synthetize new radiopharmaceuticals and train doctors in nuclear medicine.
The project is aimed to involve youth into innovation activities and development of UrFU Innovation Infrastructure personnel pool. Complex of unique educational technologies promotes formation of professional competencies in the area of innovations and knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship including orders from industrial enterprises.
UrFU Innovation Infrastructure together with McKinsey & Company and United Machinery Plants Group has been developing the first Russian «Model Factory» in Ekaterinburg. It is aimed to provide enterprise workers and students with training in modern methods of industrial enterprise organization and workforce productivity increase.
Since 2014 a special program, IT Accelerator operates in UrFU. It helps IT projects authors and teams to create prototype, perform first sale, reveal weak points of the projects and find out ways of development in short terms. Alongside with a free work place in co-working the participants get assistance of the experts, opportunity to elaborate the program of business development, chance for the University grant and other forms of support.
UrFU Innovations Development Fund
UrFU Innovations Development Fund is the first fund of this type in Russian. It was founded with participation of UrFU in 2014 as innovation fellowship for start-up projects and small innovation companies’ development. Participating in start-up funding it focuses on investments in wide range of industrial technologies.
Chemical-pharmacologic center of UrFU is aimed to develop medical preparations and technologies of their receipt, implementation and mass production of innovation medical preparations. Center consists of specialized laboratories complex and experimental-production area. On the basis of achievements obtained by UrFU and Russian Academy of Sciences Ural Department scientists in the framework of the project new antiviral, antibacterial and genetically engineered preparations and technologies of their obtaining will be generated.
