The first startup for the development and production of radiators for cooling systems of an internal combustion engine was admitted to the Innovation Center «Great Stone»

Today, the ceremony of signing the first investment agreement with the project of SPETSTEPLOBEL LLC took place in Velikiy Kamen. The startup is engaged in the development, manufacture and testing of a prototype of radiators for cooling systems for internal combustion engines. This is the first startup project that has successfully attracted investments under the Iskra investment program and will be incubated at the Chinese-Belarusian Innovation Center for the commercialization of scientific and technological achievements. The main investors in the project are SZAO Industrial Park Development Company and Literatnoe Delo LLC.

General Director of CJSC Industrial Park Development Company Yan Gang noted that the Chinese-Belarusian Innovation Center for the commercialization of scientific and technological achievements is using its resources provided as assistance by the government of the PRC to further stimulate scientific and technological exchange and cooperation between China and Belarus, as well as to enhance the international competitiveness of the China-Belarus Industrial Park.

- Within the framework of the Iskra investment program, the company for the development of an industrial park directs its resources to support small scientific and technical enterprises of Belarus, authors of scientific and technical developments, young entrepreneurs in the field of innovation, as well as to attract new industries to the Great Stone. Through research and selection, we have chosen a start-up project, OOO SPETSTEPLOBEL. It will help develop the scientific research market in Belarus. I am sure that in the future there will be even more projects with high development potential.

In turn, Deputy Chairman of the State Committee for Science and Technology Sergei Shcherbakov emphasized that this event is of particular importance for the country, since it is aimed at the development of high-tech industries, as well as at strengthening the Belarusian-Chinese scientific cooperation:

- We have cooperation with China in a wide range of areas. The number and scale of joint scientific and technical projects is growing, as it should be in the spirit of all-weather friendship and all-round strategic partnership. Over the past five years, the number of Belarusian-Chinese projects has increased by more than 50 percent. Currently, our scientists, with the support of the State Committee for Science and Technology and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, are successfully implementing projects in the field of microelectronics, optical and laser technologies, biotechnology, and new materials. Our countries have implemented and continue to implement a number of important strategic projects.

Ivan Zhukovsky, Director of SPETSTEPLOBEL LLC said that it took about four and a half years to successfully enter the park with a startup project:

- During this period, the innovative project of our enterprise took the third place in the country in the competition of innovative projects of the State Committee for Science and Technology. We have successfully passed many more events. The innovative project has passed the state examination in the section "energy". Not without pride, I can say that we have found a unique solution that allows us to say that we have a new approach to the design of heat exchange unit technologies.

Let us remind you that the day before, Presidential Decree No. 215 on the development of the «Great Stone» was signed and published. One of the main innovations of the legislative act is the direction of work with small innovative businesses. The concept of "subject of innovative detail" is introduced. From the moment of registration, a startup gets access to all the benefits of park residents for 2 years. During this period, the project is incubated, after which it can become a resident or continue to work on general terms. A number of tools are also being introduced that allow you to finance startups.
