Project supposes the organization of an industrial site for the production of foam glass (20 000 m3 per year) with improved technological and physical - mechanical properties. The company has a material - technical base (educational, scientific and production center WKATU named after Zhangir Khan), which allows the creation of experimental - industrial plot on the small-scale production of thermal insulating material, the structural foam glass.
Currently research is being performed and pilot samples of the heat-insulating - construction material - foam glass is obtained. There are agreements and a protocol of intentions with the construction companies of WKR on joint promotion of the project.
2. “Organization of the production site for serial production of the frame yurts in accordance with the requirements of the technical conditions of the PCT PK 358-86”. (“Ayaz” LLP)

The project provides a solution to the problem of low productivity of 3D printers and aims to commercialize the results of scientific and technological activities by organizing Layouts Print Center. In Kazakhstan, only a few firms provide the services of 3D printing, the official sale of the devices involves only one. The development of technology will allow efficiently implement new and already running programs.
Later in the meeting, the discussion of presented projects was held and according to the results of voting, a decision was made to approve funding for three projects reviewed, and to direct them to the scientific and technical counsel on the development of innovation.
