Become our Partner


Development of the NTI Contest requires collaboration with companies that are at the forefront of technical and engineering innovations and that share an interest in preparing a new generation of passionate professionals and leaders. The NTI Contest partners with both Russian companies focused on the growth of perspective technological markets and foreign companies associated with innovations, seeking to gain a foothold and develop in the Russian market.

Partnerships create an ecosystem for the Contest, spread the ideas of the Contest and the NTI beyond this ecosystem, verify that the tasks in the sections are in demand by business, and act as external experts on the compliance of the Contest with performance indicators.


Choose a section(s) of the Contest that you would like to support and send an email to If you can’t decide on the section – don’t worry, just contact us and we will help you. After that, we will send out our sponsorship package options for different budgets describing which opportunities you will have at the Contest, how your company will be presented, and what advantages you will get. We are always eager to consider your preferences and compose a partnership package taking them into account. Next, we will conclude a contract and start our cooperation.


You can do amazing projects and work on a lot of them, but the modern world is designed in such a way that if you don’t spread messages about them, they seem to exist only in part or do not exist at all. The heroes of our publications, stories and videos are young and talented engineers, their devoted mentors and teachers, the products they create and the ideas people need. We like to show to the audience smart and talented faces, prominent projects and new meanings. And we know how to do it. If you share this logic, if you see the points of intersection between our and your projects, target audiences and ideas, don’t hesitate to contact us.


The NTI Contest is developing thanks to mentors and venues throughout the country.

We are happy to expand our partner network. We try to be the first to inform our colleagues about all interesting activities for schoolchildren and mentors: not only about the NTI Contest events but also about project approach-based programs, competitions, tournaments, mentor schools, and grants. We provide information support for events. We advise on the design of educational paths for the NTI Contest participants.

Collaborating with the Contest allows schools, Centers for Youth Innovation Creativity, and technology parks to make schoolchildren interested in the latest engineering tasks and to prepare them for actual work on large complex projects.
