With recent turmoil impacting the global economy, Qatar and Russia have looked to R&D and innovation investments as pathways to greater productivity and prosperity.

These include a discussion on the main innovation priorities of Qatar and Russia including priority sectors and the efforts underway to create sustainable and supportive innovation ecosystems, such as the establishment of large-scale technology hubs, parks and Free Zones. They will also discuss how large local businesses and MNCs can support local innovation ecosystems by acting as piloting grounds for technology start-ups and SMEs. The panel will also review tools that can create strong links between start-ups, SMEs, and large innovative technology-driven businesses. Additionally, the speakers will describe the role that investment funds, development institutions and government agencies can play in attracting innovative international startups and multinational companies to establish bases in their respective countries — for instance by providing incentives and regulatory enablers that lower the barriers to entry and that create an optimum environment for innovation to flourish.
