April 9, 2013. An All-Russian conference dedicated to the 20th century tank-building industry, its history, historiography, museums, and books on the subject that was held at Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s head plant closed down. At the end of the conference, a summary was made, and a special resolution was voted on, Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s press service reports.

The plenary session resulted in the statement that the topics on the agenda of the conference were quite relevant and interesting for further research. The conference coordinators – Uralvagonzavod Scientific & Production Corporation, S.I. Vavilov Natural History & Technology Museum of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Polytechnic Museum – need to set up a regular team whose task would be to do research on and create museum exhibitions on the Russian tank-building industry. Also, some scientific discussions, conference, and seminars should be held on a regular basis (every eighteen to twenty-four months) to ensure fruitful discussion and presentation of research findings.

The conference participants thanked the coordinators for great level of logistics. Stella Morozova, senior researcher at Moscow Polytechnic Museum’s Project Management Directorate, pointed out in her speech that the participants gained access to content with a wide range of thought-provoking topics on the prospective project.
