For reference:

State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom is a diversified holding company that combines assets in the energy, mechanical engineering, and construction sectors. Its strategy is to develop low-carbon generation, including wind power. The Rosatom State Corporation is a national leader in electricity production (about 20% of total output) and ranks first in the world in terms of the largest portfolio of orders for the construction of nuclear power plants (33 power units in 10 countries).

Rosatom offers comprehensive solutions for the development of countries and regions of presence in terms of the development of large joint innovative projects using composite materials and additive technologies. The work of the State Corporation is related to innovative development and technological leadership in composite materials and additive technologies. The industry is reoriented not only to new markets due to the geopolitical situation, but also to new technologies and materials. The active implementation of additive technologies in production is a powerful global trend. Experts predict that by 2030, two-thirds of all manufactured products in the world will be made with printed components, and in a number of manufacturing industries, 3D printing will make it possible to create fully finished products.

The international forum «ATOMEXPO»is the main event of the global nuclear industry. The largest exhibition and business platform where the current state of the nuclear industry is discussed and trends for its further development are formed. Conducted since 2009. The forum is attended by heads of key companies in the global nuclear industry, government agencies, international and public organizations, and leading experts. The forum format includes an exhibition and congress with an extensive business program, the main event of which is the plenary session. Panel discussions and round tables discuss topics that are most important for the nuclear industry. Leading companies in the global nuclear industry and related industries present their technologies and competencies at the exhibition.

Russian industry faces the goal of ensuring technological sovereignty and the transition to the latest technologies in the shortest possible time. The state and large domestic companies are directing resources to the accelerated development of the domestic production, infrastructure, scientific and technological base. At the same time, the implementation of large joint energy projects continues. Rosatom and its divisions take an active part in this work.
