The message reads, in part:
“In the past years, the Russian Society of Inventors and Innovators has played a significant role in strengthening the national industry, agriculture and social sphere. Under its guidance, over two million inventions and advanced technical designs were made and applied in production, producing a real practical effect.
It is important that the excellent traditions of creative innovative work continue, and the current generation of Russian inventors – engineers, experts, workers –successfully tackle the challenges related to the country’s growing scientific and technological potential and to the economy’s transition to innovative development.
I believe the Society will continue to contribute to the consolidation of the professional community, the implementation of promising projects and breakthrough ideas, and will certainly give a new boost to the popularisation of the accumulated knowledge and the support of public, and especially youth initiatives.”
