AI in People’s Control, radiological data centre: digitalisation targets of Tatarstan in 2023
Tatarstan authorities continue to sum up the results of the Year of Digitalisation in the republic and prepare plans for the coming 2023. For example, a number of ministries and other departments have been instructed to analyse the events of the previous year in order to submit their proposals for improving the strategy. They should include not only work plans and financing, but also specific tasks for commissioning the information systems being developed. Read the details in the material of Realnoe Vremya.
New projects will get more coverage
Let us remind that the digital transformation programme of the republic began to operate last year. According to the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Tatarstan, in 2022 and 2023 the programme budget provides for 4,6 billion rubles, in 2024 and 2025 — 3,8 billion rubles. The total amount of funding for the programme will amount to 16,8 billion rubles. Moreover, these amounts have already been adjusted: according to the initial version, it was planned to allocate more than 1 billion rubles for 2022, 974,8 million rubles in 2023, and 675,8 million rubles in 2024.
By April 1, the state authorities, together with the Ministry of Finance, are to analyse the execution of the instructions of the rais of the republic on digitalisation of subordinate industries and the resulting economic effect.

Also, the Ministry of Digital Development of Public Administration, Information Technology and Communications needs to develop a list of measures to ensure information security of critical information infrastructure facilities by March 31.
The new projects are to provide maximum coverage to the residents of the region and be more protected from various cyber threats. Thus, digitalisation will cover even more areas in various fields — from education to healthcare.

At the same time, the KNRTU-KAI, together with ICL Techno PLC, will need to submit proposals for training specialists in the field of development and design of microelectronic equipment by December 31.
