Dear colleagues and friends!

The processes of globalization not only contributed to the opening of economic borders, but also made available for many countries the latest achievements in information and communication technologies.

At the same time, the availability of technology does not mean a guaranteed economic growth and it should be recognized that characteristics of the modern economic development is a qualitatively new role of technological and sectoral structure of the economy. However, new breakthrough technologies and basic innovations have not yet become the object of attention of investors and national economies are in different phases of structural readiness, which leads to the asynchronous nature of their economic and technological renewal.

In this regard, it seems to us extremely important to consider the role of promising breakthrough technologies of the first half of the 21st century in the formation of new industrial structures and changes in the environmental, social and economic landscape.

We are pleased to invite representatives of academic and educational institutions, industry, private business, as well as scientists involved in fundamental and applied research, to discuss technological and economic renewal of certain sectors and national economies as a whole.

We hope that the conference will be fruitful, and a fascinating beauty of North Palmira with its unique architecture will give a new impetus to creative scientific thought!

Looking forward to seeing you in St. Petersburg!

Rector of SPbPU

Objectives and topics of the conference

The processes of globalization have not only contributed to the opening of economic borders, but also made available to every person on Earth the most advanced developments in information and communication technologies. However, the availability of technology does not mean guaranteed growth and should be recognized that the features of modern economic development are strongly dependent on the new realm of technological and economic structure. We are amid the most profound and fast-moving structural shift that has ever happened in history, which some scholars have coined as Industry 4.0. However, the new breakthrough technologies and basic innovations have not yet correctly become the object of attention of investors and policy makers, and national economies are at different phases of structural readiness, which caused an asynchrony of their economic and technological renewal capabilities. In this connection it is extremely important to consider the role of promising breakthrough technologies of the first half of the 21st century in the formation of new industrial structures and changing environmental, social and economic landscape.
