Innovating Russia’s Pacific: Skolkovo branch planned for Vladivostok

3 Mar '15
The Skolkovo Foundation may open a representative office in the Pacific port city of Vladivostok, the head of its space cluster, Sergey Zhukov, was quoted as saying last week. The report came from East-West Digital News, the first international information company dedicated to Russian digital industries, which cited the news agency Rossiya Segodnya.

Asked about the innovation environment in the Far Eastern city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur, where projects from surrounding regions were presented to a Skolkovo expert panel, Mr. Zhukov answered, “We should note that there are no Skolkovo residents from the regions east of Irkutsk [Lake Baikal] yet.”

“So we plan to open our first representative office in the Far East. It will be located in Vladivostok,” he added. “I don’t doubt that Komsomolsk residents will get support from investors.”

Mr. Zhukov was leading a Skolkovo delegation to view innovations presented by 13 start-ups in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, a city of 250,000 in the Khabarovsk region that’s home to civil and military plane manufacturing.

“Komsomolsk-on-Amur, according to local officials, has great potential with innovations,” he was quoted as saying.

He was speaking just over a month ahead of the April 2-3 Vladivostok stage of the Russian Startup Tour.
