Russia – Advanced Engineering Scoping Study and Report, 2009

Client: UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Advanced Engineering Sector Group

UKTI Advanced Engineering Sector Group wanted assistance in Russia to identify business opportunities on a cross sectoral basis by investigating the engineering technologies, products, processes and skills that are most required.

Over a three month period the Kinetic Cubed team of specialists carried out an extensive research programme of fieldwork in Russia and the UK with Advanced Engineering companies and stakeholders covering civil aerospace, automotive, mining and general engineering sectors. Interviews in Russian were conducted face to face in market in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg (Urals), Chelyabinsk (Southern Urals) and Nizhny Novgorod (Volga Basin). Case studies were developed to highlight specific key findings.

From the analysis of the research collated, a report was developed which identified the key gaps in Russian Advanced Engineering and matched these to UK capabilities. The outcome of the research was to provide UKTI with series of highly practical recommendations to strengthen and focus its support for UK Advanced Engineering companies wanting to do more business in Russia
