One of such joint projects is the creation of engineering centers on the basis of the leading technical universities in the country. Just a couple of weeks ago, the next, the sixth in a row competitive selection took place, which resulted in the decision to support 11 new projects. Thus, over the period of the program's operation, 60 engineering centers have been established and supported in 37 regions of the country. Their customers are over 125 industrial companies , -
