The Partner events program launched in 2003 united existing Japanese, EU and US workshop programs. The goal of the Partner program is to showcase recent advances in Russian technologies to the US, EU, Japanese, and Korean business and scientific communities. These exchanges allow for fruitful scientific exchange, thus facilitating development of new ISTC projects.
Russian/CIS experts in specific fields are invited to participate in the Partner events according to the focus of the program, which the hosting party identifies based on availability and topicality.
During the event Russian/CIS scientists and their foreign colleagues present reports devoted to the workshop theme, and also have an opportunity to exchange views on prospects of cooperation through ISTC projects. Following the workshop the Russian/CIS participants visit local research institutions as well as governmental and private sector enterprises engaged in relevant activities. These visits acquaint the Russian/CIS participants with the scientific achievements of their foreign colleagues at local laboratories and industrial sites.
