Skolkovo biomed cluster accepts agricultural newcomers
These additions are part of the Russian government’s plans to inspire high-tech innovations within the food production industry. All Skolkovo residents pursuing these ventures qualify for certain benefits, such as patent support, office space, grants, investments, tax breaks and more.
“We decided to open this new avenue a year ago,” Skolkovo vice president and cluster director Kirill Kaem said. “It’s needed because of the sheer volume of worthy projects in the field of agriculture that the foundation would like to support.”
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev also said Russia will soon be able to produce enough foodstuffs for itself and for exporting to other countries.
“This sector is lagging behind but has huge potential,” Skolkovo President Viktor Vekselberg said.
