A resident at Moskva Technopolis, a special economic zone, has developed a radio frequency identification system with tags or labels for protecting museum items. By detecting the signals, the museum can automatically locate and track various art objects, and also control access to them.
Museum employees can also use the radio tags/labels for tracking items during restoration, at depositories or at exhibitions in other regions.
“Modern technology is used to serve society, and it can be used to preserve historical and cultural heritage as well. Moscow leads the way in developing and introducing advanced solutions. The Moscow Government creates favourable infrastructure and financial conditions for this purpose,” Head of the Department of Investment and Industrial Policy Alexander Prokhorov noted.
The Moskva Technopolis special economic zone has five sites, including four in Zelenograd and one at the Moskva Technopolis in Pechatniki. It brings together several high-tech production sectors, including microelectronics, optics, robotics, and medical technologies and equipment. Composite materials are also manufactured here. Some Moskva Technopolis companies develop information, communications, nano and energy-efficient technologies. Some companies manufacture orthopaedic footwear.
Since 2016, the city has been supporting promising companies partly by subsidizing attendance at Russian and foreign trade shows. In January 2019, companies involved in the Made in Moscow programme for supporting exporters represented Russia at a technological trade show in Dubai. Local manufacturers displayed over 30 new innovations there under the Made in Moscow brand.
