Plenary session: “ECONOMY IN A DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM”

Official welcome speeches:

Alexander Bogomaz, Governor of Bryansk region

Public officials

Agenda:

DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM OF THE SLAVIC STATES

Integration of digital platforms within the EEU, connection of the Slavic Commonwealth countries to them.

Cross-border cooperation mechanisms can be useful for testing interaction between different software solutions. How should digital interaction between regulators of friendly countries and regions be developed?

Ways to link and combine systems and platforms from different countries (regulatory framework, business processes, standards for documents and data formats).

Proper approach to building up digital cooperation for the development of mutual trade, expansion of international transport corridors and transport infrastructure.

ROLE OF THE REGION IN THE DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM OF THE COUNTRY

Many Russian regions take a passive stand when it comes to creating the national digital ecosystem, probably believing that all platform solutions will be chosen and implemented in Moscow and they will only have to adopt the ready-to-use solutions when an instruction from “above” is given. However, a digital economy cannot be developed without direct involvement of Russian regions.

How can regions join in the process of creating the national digital ecosystem?

What competence centers can be concentrated here?

AGRO-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX DIGITALIZATION

How will the agro-industrial landscape change after the launch of a digital ecosystem influencing agricultural production, processing, warehousing and transport logistics, wholesale and retail trade? How will the public and tax control over agro-industrial businesses change?

REGULATORY FRAMEWORK TRANSFORMATION FOR THE NEW ECONOMY

Digitalization imposes new requirements on the legal framework. Adoption of platforms often does not work as expected because of an underdeveloped regulatory framework. New laws may influence the speed at which platforms are created.

How does the regulatory system respond to the challenges posed by the new economy?

SOCIAL EFFECTS OF A DIGITAL ECONOMY

Automation and digital enablement release human resources. Unmanned production becomes a reality.

How can the labor market be regulated, where and how can workforce be redirected?

INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY CLUSTER

Digital competencies are concentrated around basic technical universities. How can the public authorities, industrial manufacturers and universities cooperate in creating an ICT cluster in the region?

ELITE FOR A DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

People as digital economy architects.

Implementation of new platforms is spearheaded by a bunch of enthusiasts possessing the necessary competencies and being excited about an idea, capable of living by it. Ways to find and foster ambitious, strong-minded creators. Development of organizational, methodological framework and human resources for dealing with talented children and youth.

Training of engineers should start at school. Physics is the key element of engineering science. Preparation of highly skilled teachers in physics lays foundation to training young engineers. “Wars are not won by generals, wars are won by school teachers and parish priests” (Otto von Bismarck).

Increasing the prestige of and respect for engineering professions.

Strategic session: “NEW ENGINEERING ELITE: THE FOUNDATION OF INDUSTRY 4.0”

Only top-notch specialists can meet the new economic challenges. The transition to new production technologies requires involvement of more than ordinary engineers, more than well-educated specialists – that’s a challenge for the engineering elite, people with creative abilities leveraging deep fundamental knowledge. The scarcity of engineering elite is currently the main barrier for a technology breakthrough. The development and implementation of new technologies, including digital solutions, is hampered by the lack of talented specialists. Managers are raising concerns at all levels: there is nobody to design production processes.

How can one solve this issue? How should the education system be tweaked to identify talented students at early stages of education? Ways to ensure their high-quality education and training at schools, then at higher education institutions. What should be done to motivate the future engineering elite to stay in the region?

Discussion agenda:

Review of the current situation.

Discovering and training future engineers at extracurricular technology-oriented clubs, centers for support of gifted children, children’s technology parks.

Technical training centers for students in Bryansk region. First results, further development prospects. Replication of solutions in other regions.

Personnel training experience in neighboring regions and Slavic countries.

Children become engineers when inspired by enthusiastic, dedicated school teachers of physics, mathematics and computer science. Where are such teachers to be found? How should the higher pedagogical school respond to requirements of the new economy?

Universities play a leading role in training specialists for the digital economy. How do high schools compete for talented students? How do universities bring the training process in line with the real needs of businesses? What needs to be done to transform the higher education system into a talent foundry?

Today’s students will become engineers in 10-15 years. Where can one find talents today? Ways to “lure” best specialists into regions.

What are industrial enterprises’ requirements for engineering skills amidst ongoing digitalization?

Increasing the prestige of engineering occupations. Who should form a positive image of today’s engineer, technologist, programmer, how should this be done?

“REGIONAL DIGITAL PLATFORM IN THE AGRO-INDUSTRY”: a brainstorming session

Goldman Sachs analysts forecast that the use of next-gen technologies can increase the global agricultural output by 70% by 2050. Intermediaries along the field to fork chain push up food prices for end consumers several times. Payments due to intermediaries often account for as much as 85% of prices at retail outlets. Today’s IT technologies provide an opportunity to reduce this margin. Another way to improve efficiency in agro-industry is to directly use digital technologies in production.

Bryansk region’s agricultural sector saw stable growth rates in 2017 and 2018. For the 5-month period in 2018, the growth rate reached 5.1%. In 2017, the grain yield increased by 14%, the potato yield by 16%. The animal husbandry industry has also achieved strong performance results. A number of processing enterprises (Bryansk Meat Company, Bryansk Broiler, Syr Starodubsky, the Bryansk dairy plant and many others) are operating and dynamically developing in the region. A fast-paced modern agro-industrial complex has been created; its further development will largely depend on how successfully the industry will build itself into the digital economy. The capabilities of the regional industry, the ambitions of businesses remain the backbone for creating a regional digital sectoral platform, a potential prototype for digital solutions suitable for distribution in all regions of Central Russia.

The session will take place in the brainstorming format. In the course of discussion, its participants will have to identify the basic requirements of enterprises and draw up a map of required digital solutions. Simultaneously, the session will focus on the primary audit of existing ready-to-use platforms for the agro-industrial sector, analyze the regional IT companies’ capabilities to create new or adjust the existing agro-industrial technology systems.

As a result of the brainstorming, the core principles of the road map for creating a regional digital platform will be formulated.

Discussion trajectory

What first priority steps should be taken to induce digital transformation in the agro-industrial sector?

What off-the-shelf solutions exist in the plant growing industry?

Should domestic or foreign solutions be given priority?

How can these solutions be adapted to the needs of the region?

How should one combine the existing systems into a single platform?

What are possible cost reduction options in implementing digitalization instruments? How can the IT potential be unleashed in regions?

The platform will ensure transparency at all production stages. How can the government and tax control be increased without prejudice to producers’ business interests?

What funding sources are required to create a regional digital platform in the agro-industrial sector?

New digital platform for the agro-industrial sector and farmland inventory. Eliminating discrepancies between digital land mapping results and cadastral data.

Fitting the regional platform into the “Digital agriculture” federal program.

“DIGITAL REGION”: a cross-industry session

Digitalization of the region should be primarily aimed at improving the living standards of people. The urban and rural infrastructure, social programs, housing and utilities sector should be comfortable and effective. Furthermore, digitalization can streamline region management activities of public authorities, reduce their cost and contribute to a favorable living environment in the region.

Discussion agenda:

DIGITAL GOVERNMENT

Public services and multifunctional centers for the population. In what direction should electronic services be developed?

According to population surveys, people are concerned about everyday life’s problems rather than public services when it comes to relations between them and the state. It is essential that the state should take a correct view of people’s needs are respond to them promptly. How can the state build a constructive dialogue with the population? How can digital technologies help understand people’s needs and respond to them? What is the best way to involve people in joint problem-solving? How appropriate is it to use the “Active Citizen” replicable service? Does the region have internal projects of such services?

SMART CITY

Smart transport systems, traffic optimization, smart public transport stops, programmable traffic lights are elements being implemented on a mass scale in major cities of Russia. However, these solutions are costly, and only rich regions can afford the cost of digital transformation in the transport sector. Bryansk region has a high potential in electronic engineering. Can the region leverage internal resources to create its own smart transport system?

DIGITAL HOUSING & UTILITIES SERVICES

What does the practice of implementing smart home technologies in large-scale housing construction show? What is the economics of implementing a housing and utilities management system based on various sensors?

The widespread use of sensors and the Internet of Things in utility systems forms a separate large market. Are regional companies ready to occupy this niche?

DIGITAL VILLAGE

Broadband Internet penetration in all rural communities. Availability of high-quality communication facilities in rural communities as an essential factor of their revival. Situation analysis and a near-term outlook.

Digitalization can revive consumer cooperation and bring it into the web. Ways to teach a rural private trader to become part of the system.

“OCCUPATIONS IN A DIGITAL WORLD”: a youth game

The main purpose of the youth game is to simulate labor activity in a digital future. The session will identify trends in the transformation of present-day occupations in a digital world.

GENERAL SESSION RULES

The game sends participants 15 years forward in time. They live and work in a digital future. Digital government, digital society and digital production have already become a reality.

All the game participants share one big and ambitious goal: create the first manned base on the Moon. The pilot project envisages rotating presence of 10 people at the base.

The game brings together teams of students studying at higher education institutions. Each team consists of senior students of different faculties. Each “taskforce” is given a problem to solve as part of the general project, depending on the higher education institution’s specialization. For example, a team representing the technical higher education institution may face the problem of creating a transport link between the lunar base and the Earth. The agricultural university can handle the issue of food production on the Moon. The base construction may be a challenge for the construction university, and so on.

Each team is a project office, with a certain task or problem assigned to it. The final project presentations of the teams should outline the key technical and organizational aspects of the solution found for the problem. The presentation must specify the professional capacity, including the current specialization, of each participant, taking into account the digital world realities.

The student teams will be opposed by a “Society of Skeptics”, recognized experts in various professional fields. Their task is to call the presented solutions and the participants’ professional capacity into question. They will also assess the participants’ performance, primarily appreciating the solution elegance (for projects) and relevance in the digital future (for occupations).

The participants should be aged 18 to 30. The team consists of 5-7 members specialized in different fields. The team should have a leader.

No more than 7 teams can participate in the project game.

The winning team will be picked based on the project session results. All the winning team members will be awarded diplomas and prizes. The other participants will receive certificates of participation in the project session.

The team list must be finalized before the game starts. At the preliminary stage, each team picks a leader, thinks up a name of the project office taking into account the specialization of the industry it represents, distributes the roles inside the team.

Applications for participation of the project office in the game should be submitted until October 11, 2018 by sending it to the Forum organizing committee at: jjk@akm.ru.

“DIGITAL HEALTHCARE”: a thematic session

Discussion agenda:

Key parameters of the “Digital Health” federal project. What will its implementation bring to the healthcare industry?

What medical information systems are in demand at healthcare institutions? Their pros and cons.

For years, all medical institutions of Bryansk region have been employing the Med-Complete single digital platform. What are benefits of these software products for medical organizations? What bottlenecks are there in the system? In what direction should the platform develop? What advantages does Med-Complete have over the counterparts?

The digital economy program assumes that all medical institutions of Russia should be united in a single digital medical network. One of the integration problems is to ensure seamless interfacing between different software solutions uniting them into a single platform. What steps are being taken in that direction?

Another issue is the slower progress in legislative activities compared with digitalization. What legal innovations can be expected?

The large-scale healthcare digitalization and concentration of information provide unique opportunities for analyzing the health condition of the nation and individuals, as well as comprehensive statistics allowing to see whether the chosen treatment is correct and what preventive activities should be aimed at. Can Russia’s Single State Healthcare Information System (currently being created) meet these challenges? Are there such elements in other regional digital platforms? How is the feedback function used, how analysis results are returned to the system to help fine-tune it? How does the system protect strategic information and personal data?

Digital technologies are changing the system of relations in diagnostic medicine. Laboratory diagnostic studies are playing an increasingly higher role in the “laboratory-doctor-patient” triangle. The role of the patient is also growing resulting from active self-testing based on laboratory analyses and a huge bulk of information on the Internet. The role of the doctor in diagnostics is gradually shrinking to being a link between the patient and the computer program. What changes will more advanced use of digital technologies bring to the occupational landscape in medicine?

“NEW EMPLOYMENT ECOSYSTEM”: a discussion panel

Digital economy fundamentally changes the ecosystem of employment. Most of the routine functions are transferred from the human to IT technologies. Occupations related to fulfilling these functions will gradually disappear from the labor market. At the same time, the number of projects where temporary involvement of different specialists is required will increase. Permanent employment will gradually evolve into one-project employment.

Hundreds of thousands of people are already flex-time workers migrating from one project to another without being bound to one company, office, or even region. So-called freelance workers have their own exchanges, environment, rules and regulations. They are not officially employed by their customers, and this trend will gain force as digital technologies further develop. The Russian freelance market ranks among the world’s top 10 markets in the total amount of payment transactions and remains on a growth trajectory.

Discussion agenda:
  • What legal framework can be used for building ad-hoc temporary labor teams? What is the most comfortable way to give freelance workers the status of sole proprietor?
  • Sole proprietorship registration, keeping of accounts, payment of taxes are burdensome and discouraging for self-employed people. How can digital technologies help freelance workers obtain a legal status without discomfort?
  • The cornerstone of the freelance philosophy is working without time or space limitations. Freelancers are not chained to employers. When choosing a place of residence, such specialists make a point of good living conditions, amenities, a clean environment, high-speed communication. How can one attract project specialists to the region, what makes them choose it for permanent living? How can dying villages be transformed into comfortable localities for programmers, designers and engineers?
  • For customers, the key problem in dealing with freelancers is a high risk of failure to fulfill an order. Unable to control freelancers’ discipline, companies often incur losses from broken deadlines and inability to contact the specialist. Outstaffing, temporary labor teams acting as remote project offices, as a more reliable alternative option. What is this innovation about, can it be a success in Russia?

DEVELOPMENT OF NATIONAL IT SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE THE COMPETITIVE EDGE OF THE DOMESTIC ENGINEERING INDUSTRY: a project session

Industry 4.0, groundbreaking technologies and equipment require the use of a specialized digital system for modeling complex engineering systems. Project developers currently prefer using foreign digital twin creation systems, resulting in dependence on foreign developers. As a rule, foreign vendors sell software based on outdated solutions. Suppliers will not disclose the source code of computer platforms, resulting in higher risks of unauthorized access to the process data management environment. Therefore, foreign software products cannot be used in the development of strategic high technology systems, including defense systems.

One of the key challenges for Russia is to build a national digital engineering ecosystem. Efforts of domestic companies operating in different segments should be combined to give birth to a single digital platform based on the domestic software code and intended for applications ranging from the development of new technologies, analysis and engineering to bringing innovation to production.

Discussion agenda:
  • What domestic digital engineering systems are being successfully applied in mechanical engineering?
  • What are machine-builders’ requirements for engineering software?
  • Ways to combine different IT solutions in a single platform.
  • How can one make blocks of systems interchangeable to improve platform reliability?
  • How can the process of creating such a platform be integrated into the “Digital Economy of the Russian Federation” national program?
