Skolkovo Innovation Center registers new street names
The center was built west of Moscow to further Russia’s technological advancements and to honor some of the greatest technological and scientific contributors in Russian and world history.
Bolshoi Boulevard winds its way around all four of Skolkovo’s districts and two of its zones. Russians honored with street names include radio inventor Alexander Popov, aviation innovator Igor Sikorsky, 18th-century inventor Ivan Kulibin, cathode ray television inventor Valdimir Zworykin and artist Kazimir Malevich.
Street names honoring individuals from the rest of the world are Nicola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Blaise Pascal, Wilhelm Rontgen, James Maxwell, Adam Smith, Alessandro Volta and Alfred Nobel.
This achievement marks the latest milestone in the growth of Skolkovo, Russia’s top innovations hub.
