Modern Industry. Enhancing Cooperation in Response to Global Technological Challenges

The predictions made about the death of industry in cities turned out to be an overstatement. Instead, a service-oriented economy, a concentrated talent pool and high scientific/technological potential keep modern industrial firms within city limits. The city becomes host to innovative, hi-tech production on a small scale, which feature a flexible management model that allows them to implement cutting-edge and complex projects in the Industry 4.0 market. Just like many other global megacities, Moscow is thoroughly invested in the maintenance and development of the industrial complex in the city.

  • What is a modern urban industrial complex?
  • What role does it play in the economy and employment in the city?
  • How to create an attractive environment for the industry?
  • What happens to the traditional industry in a big city?
