Skolkovo Fund participates in CeBIT IT exhibition in Germany

The Skolkovo Fund is participating in CeBIT, an international IT exhibition in Hannover, Germany, this week.

CeBIT aims to bring together large companies, start-ups, investors and speakers in the digital industry.

Skolkovo--a partner of Uzbek mogul Iskander Makhmudov's Transmashholding--will present 30 industrial, safety and lifestyle start-ups at this year's event. The company will also have the opportunity to share experiences with colleagues.

Other participants include 3D-tek, which will present a new, one-of-a-kind projection screen using optical technology interpolation. The screen, which has no analogues in the world, can be used with conventional projectors and has content playback that exceeds ultra-high definition.

Additionally, the Wilcron Company will present Webot, a robot that allows users to remotely observe what is happening at the robot's location while also interacting and talking to people. The robot moves at the pace of a walking human.
