Moscow Competition Days: How Hi-Tech Projects Help Manage Cities

Experts will discuss the execution of the national project „Digital Economy,“ opportunities for newcomers on the Moscow IT market, and the Russian capital's performance in comparison with other smart cities.



Digital technologies have long become part of everyday lives of Muscovites. IT solutions are widely used in healthcare, education, traffic management, and public utilities.
 
Moscow's becoming a digital city will be the topic of a panel discussion at the conference titled „Competition. Markets. Figures. People.“ The event will run on 22 October as part of „Moscow Competition Days.“

„Moscow traditionally occupies top positions in global digitization indices. This is the result of coordinated work of a team of professionals. At „Moscow Competition Days“, we will talk about who and what makes the city digital, talk about new approaches to the development of technologies and the role of competition  in this process,” said Gennady Degtev, head of the Moscow Competition Policy Department.

Representatives of the Moscow IT Department, Russian Association of Electronic Communications, and local IT companies will participate in the discussion.

„Developing and implementing advanced technological solutions in the city is impossible without the local business community. The city, for its part, has designed a number of tools to support innovative companies – from the electronic services provided at mos.ru to the innovation cluster's infrastructure. This helps businesses grow and fosters a competitive environment. And a healthy competition is key to the emergence of breakthrough projects,“ said Eduard Lysenko, head of the Moscow IT Department.

„Moscow Competition Days“ is a large-scale multi-format project. It is designed to raise awareness of healthy competition practices in all spheres of the city's life.

In the coming two months, the Moscow Competition Policy Department will be hosting conferences and meetings with entrepreneurs, university and school students.
