Innovations are a contact sport: the more people that are taking part, the better the result. The most important elements are a well thought out concept, team work and a mix of new technologies. At the end of the day, I believe that innovations always take us outside our comfort zone and bring us face to face with the unknown.Gerald Schotman
Executive Vice President for technology and innovation at Royal Dutch Shell
Today it’s more important than ever to continue on the course of integrating Russia into global development. Science and education have always been important tools of global international cooperation. The Open Innovations Forum allows leaders in business and education to agree a joint agenda not just for the short term but for the long term as well.Edward Crawley

The human body is a machine that tends to break down during normal operation, the same way that a car breaks down from time to time. Very soon we’re going to be able to fix these malfunctions and prevent them from adversely affecting our bodies. Thus, we are going to extend our healthy lifespan far beyond what our bodies are naturally capable of, the same way as cars that are designed to last 10 years can run for up to 100 years provided they get proper maintenance.Aubrey de Grey - British gerontologist and the Chief Science Officer
