On the first day, as a part of the Forum work, there was a session of the Commission on Economy Modernization and Technological Development. More than 10 agreements, aimed at the realization of joint nanotechnology projects, innovation infrastructure development and high-tech production demand stimulation, were successfully signed.

Also, presentations of several perspective projects were held on the Forum’s area. Visitors could learn a new retail-format (created by ROSNANO featuring X5 Retail Group N.V. and JSC “Sitronics”) – The Store of the Future. Its distinguishing feature - is the use of Radio Frequency Identification tags and data remote reading. Moreover, the model of “Nano House”, built by using nanotechnology of the Project Companies of ROSNANO was demonstrated to all visitors and participants of the Forum.

Visitors and participants of ROSNANOTECH 2011 were able to learn the first prototype of Russian electric transport, created by project company of ROSNANO - “Liotech” Ltd.

At the second time, a special Youth Program for schoolchildren and students was organized as a part of IV International Forum on nanotechnologies.
