    Amazing thread sepheronx !
    Particularly interesting news about amber :)As a kid I used to stroll around looking for amber pieces washed away by the sea. By having no excavation sites we only produce 200-400 kg of Amber per year Very Happy
    My country calls it self Land of amber, while 99 percent of amber our artists buy are from Russia. But now Chinese imploded the prices. They are buying amber like there is no tomorrow. Russian and Lithuanian artists are worried as for 1 kg quality amber You have to close to 10,000 euros! People are selling  amber they find, it's amber fever, no joking. You can see people leaving moon like landscapes after they dig amber themselves. Fines for non licensed excavation and selling are very harsh in Russia, but for a small match box sized piece You can get 500 euros so it's worth a risk. It's bit bizarre to see it happening as amber wasn't expensive and now all the process was made vulgar, there is no need for art, just material, but hey, it's capitalism.

    I wouldn't say it is a daily basis of opening different factories, but either some of them are modernization of old factories (in other words, new plant, old plant is closed) and or new production lines in a factory already set up and working. But yes, there are quite a few new businesses opening up and big projects happening. Hope to hear more good news!

    Skolkovo secures $4bn state funding until 2020

    The Skolkovo Foundation, which manages Russia’s largest state-sponsored innovation hub under construction outside Moscow, will receive another $4.1bn shot in the arm from government coffers between now and 2020, East-West Digital News, the international resource on Russian digital industries, reported earlier this week.

    The decision, which might signal the technopark’s return to political favor, was made last week at a Russian government meeting presided by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

    In a separate statement, Skolkovo Foundation president Viktor Vekselberg said last Thursday that by 2020, Skolkovo “expects to raise more than $11bn in private investment.” The Skolkovo program will not tap government finance “after 2025,” he added.

    Vekselberg also forecast that as a private-public partnership “capable of paying for itself” by 2020 Skolkovo will contribute to Russia’s economy “about $6.5bn worth of products and services.” Seventeen years from now, when the Skolkovo program is expected to be running at full throttle, the Foundation president hopes the ‘innovation city’ will add “up to $45bn to the national GDP.”

    The news came just in time to dispel widespread rumors of an “imminent demise” of what some pejoratively call “Medvedev’s pet project.”

    President Vladimir Putin of Russia, the indisputably number one policy maker in this country, seems to be more reserved about Skolkovo, which he is said to consider “artificial.”

    Even though his chief of staff Sergey Ivanov stated in June that “Skolkovo is here to stay,” Putin countermanded mandatory allocations by government-owned corporations for Skolkovo’s university project, a decision Medvedev had made as president.

    Skolkovo, now home to 941 resident companies including a few dozen foreign ones, has also been the subject of broad-based scrutiny over the past year, notably by the Russia’s Attorney General Office. A 2012 investigation by the Accounts Chamber also revealed several cases of questionable financial practices at the Foundation. As a result, some key figures came under fire and lost their jobs this past spring.

    Private in Space Development

    Hello, everyone. This Zelenyikot I want to tell you about news, which means a lot to me, and I'm sure will attract the attention of many habrovchan.

    Habré with interest the activities of private space companies: SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, and others. Progress does not stand still, and, behold, a private space program has reached and Russia. Imagine the domestic first-born, who is determined to make a profitable space exploration " Daura Aerospace . "

    Habre like publication of the cosmos, but traditionally related to them as a "lion", ie to the fact that pleasing to the eye, pleases the soul, but has no practical application in my life. Now is a thing of the past, and "Daura" any suggestions that may be of interest not only willing to make a career in the space industry, but also free to developers. Nearing the time when the space will be for Habr not only interesting, but also profitable.

    For each direction of the company I have to tell in detail until a brief overview please.

    The company created a native of the Trans-Baikal Michael Kokorich. He made his fortune in the retail and lots of other start-ups, but at some point decided to combine the vision of the cosmos and the desire to make money. Michael, and his two classmates on physico-mathematical school of Novosibirsk State University, created a "Dauriyu Aerospace." The company was named for the historic name of Transbaikalia. The central office is located in Moscow at the Technopark Skolkovo. During a 2012 "Daura" became an international holding company, having included the American company Canopus and German CloudEO. In Russia, the company has assembled a young but professional team that allowed the implementation of the first to start their own space project DX-1. In addition, in December 2012, the company won a government contract to produce two microsatellites Roscosmos, and the development of accommodation units in the CubeSat standard Russian launch vehicles.
    And

    Scanex

    Abstract

    Center "RDC" has initiated the development of an educational project to create a micro-sized constellation of spacecraft "Transparent World".

    In the development of the project "Transparent World" involved specialists of the Russian space industry and commercial companies in the sector of Geoinformatics, including CB "Flight", Omsk (designer and manufacturer of small satellites "Hope", "University-Tatiana", "Mozhaets" and launch vehicles "Kosmos-3M") and NIILAKT Rosto, Kaluga (developer team radio complexes control microsatellites "University-Tatiana", etc.). ETC "RDC" provides funding for the project today and develops receiving stations means of thematic processing of remote sensing data, provides marketing and information support to the progress of the project.
    It is real good to know that the private sectors in Russia are getting more involved in development of space. will lead to more improvements in the high tech sector.

    Dvorkovich: Production of domestic limousines "Cortege" could begin in 2017-2018 years
    http://www.itar-tass.com/c16/916689.html

    MOSCOW, October 17. / ITAR-TASS /. Production of the first cars of the project "Cortege" (Russian-made car to the leaders of the country, as well as the line of cars for the mass sale), according to the project could begin in late 2017 - early 2018. This was announced in an interview with "Russia-24" Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich.

    According to him, the project envisages the creation of off-road vehicles as well as business-class cars, with off-road vehicles will be assembled before, and executive sedans until 2020.

    He noted that it is a co-production of the research institute of automobile and motor / FSUE "NAMI" / and the company "Marussia Motors" Nikolai Fomenko using international technology Volkswagen, Mersedes and Japanese companies - especially Toyota. "The project is implemented in close cooperation with international partners, such as Magna, Continental, Porsche and others," - said Deputy Prime Minister.

    The production site is located in Russia, a significant portion of the components will be foreign-made (about 30%) and thus will be a high level of localization of production.

    Now, according to Dvorkovich, the most likely production site is a factory ZIL, given the location of production and research issledovatelnoy base for this project.

    To carry out development and training of the production base of the federal budget provides about 11-12 billion rubles for the "three-year plan," other investments, said Dvorkovich, about the same amount, will be private.

    "Development should be completed before the end of 2014 - the maximum, beginning in 2015," - said Deputy Prime Minister. Presumably, SUVs will cost from two million rubles, business class cars from one and a half million. "For the calculations, that is, with the modest volume of demand, recoupment and repayment can be achieved before the year 2023 -2025," - said Dvorkovich.

    Production capacity will amount to a maximum of 30,000 cars a year. A final decision on the choice of the production site will be made after completion of the design - in 2015.

    This is exciting news. It was interesting to read about the design contest, and the top 10 designs.

    RT and other places (eg the Russian car magazine websites) do some features on it.
    RT article.
    Putin's new limo: Top 10 Russian-made designs in online contest

    I always think that Russia should achieve in the "key areas" - all planes,design, computers, cars, military etc

    I wonder what the final design will actually look like.

    One thing is, I wonder if the name of the project will change. "Cortege" in England is associated with a "funeral cortege". And the word "cavalcade" tends to be used more for a civil procession of cars.
    In America, ofcourse the word "motorcade" is used instead.

    It would be great to have a number of top level car marques develop in Russia eg Marussia, Zil etc

    I dont think it would be a problem if foreign expertise is utilised. After all, Rolls Royce had much BMW tech. And Lambo/Bentley use Volkswagen Audi. Yet all are still their own marques in terms of identity.
