Digital transformation and import substitution to be discussed at the CIPR conference in Nizhny Novgorod

The 7th annual conference “Digital Industry of Industrial Russia” (CIPR) will take place on June 1–3 in Nizhny Novgorod. The event will feature four main thematic program tracks, providing a venue for discussions on digital transformation, import substitution, countermeasures in response to sanctions, and incentivizing domestic innovation, organizers say.

The CIPR.Tech track will be dedicated to digital transformation of the energy industry, construction, housing and communal services, logistics, health care, education, agriculture, and ecology under current circumstances. Participants of the CIPR.Sustainable track’s sessions will discuss major drivers of the ESG agenda, cybersecurity, and smart city development. The CIPR.Innovation track will explore issues related to import substitution and countermeasures in response to sanctions. The CIPR.Black track will examine topics at the intersection of creative industries and digital technology.

An exhibition featuring over 140 stands showcasing Russian digital technology solutions will be organized as well. “The exhibition is divided into two parts: the first one is solutions created by market leaders showcasing major corporations’ cross-sector projects, and the second one is industry-specific and involves large customers and breakthrough companies of the year presenting digital solutions for 10 sectors of the industry,” organizers say.

The CIPR will host the CIPR Digital Award and an NFT art exhibition “Decipraland” of over 60 NFT artworks created by leading artists and young talents. The conference will be the main event of the CIPR Tech Week, held from May 30 to June 5. Participants will enjoy lectures, public talks, startup pitches, an esports tournament, street art festival, gastronomic and music events.

The CIPR is the first Russian conference that aims to ensure global dialogue and enable cooperation between government and business in digital economy development, industrial transformation, implementation of the “Digital Economy” national program, development of domestic high technology export, and cybersecurity. OMG Agency is the organizer of the conference. Rostec and Rosatom state corporations are the CIPR’s strategic partners; Russian Railways JSC is the CIPR’s general partner.
