ASE Group of Companies, the Rosatom State Corporation Engineering Division and the Russian Transport University (MIIT) have outlined their intentions in the area of joint implementation of infrastructure projects by signing a cooperation agreement on May 30, 2018.
The document is focused on development and implementation of projects related to the development of design, construction and transport infrastructure operation technologies,  development of projects in the area of high speed transport systems, joint programmes in the area of the digital transformation of the transport industry. 
“The works are being implemented at the national level to ensure transition to the knowledge-driven economy including through implementing the advanced digital intellectual production technologies.  The Russian University is implementing a programme providing a scientific rationale to establish a transport system in the digital economy since MIIT is an integrator of R&D works in the area of development and implementation of the transport digital technologies.  ASE Group of Companies has been considered in turn as a leader in the area of the digital industrial platform for engineering activities. This is why we are sure that our cooperation will be mutually beneficial and useful’, Boris Levin, the rector of MIIT pointed out.  
The specialists of ASE Group of Companies and MIIT have to solve together scientific problems related to the analysis and structuring of the transportation infrastructure operational data in large volumes, carry out works for optimization of solutions related to information modelling of design objects, improve the processes in the  areas of virtual and augmented realities.  
“ROSATOM’s Engineering Division is a principal investigator in the “Digital Economy” programme approved by the Government of Russia”. ASE Group of companies is developing and implementing its own digital platform based on Multi-D technology.  The collaboration with the Russian Transport University will result in exchange of the experience accumulated by our organizations in the area of digital technologies which will facilitate the national technical leadership in engineering, designing and construction of complex engineering facilities in various economies”, Vyacheslav Alenkov, JSC ASE EC Director for System Engineering and IT pointed out as part of signing the bilateral agreement.   
For reference:
ASE Group of companies was established in the frame of the engineering division of Rosatom State Corporation by merging four leading companies of the industry: (JSC ASE EC - Atomstroyexport JSC - Atomenergoproekt JSC - ATOMPROEKT JSC). ASE is one of the global leaders in nuclear power engineering and holds 30% of the global NPP construction market. ASE has representative offices, branch offices and operational offices operating in 15 countries around the world, with almost 80% of its portfolio coming from the projects abroad.
Besides the company also provides services in the field of NPP decommissioning, construction of facilities for RAW and SNF management, research reactors, thermal power plants as well as a full range of EPC, EPC(M) and PMC services for any complex engineering assets. 
The Federal State Budgetary Higher Education Institution “Russian Transport University” (MIIT) is an intermodal and general transport research and educational centre, the largest industrial university in Russia, the basic centre to guarantee staff support and scientific supervision to the transport industry.
