The message reads, in part:
“Over the years, the Foundation has done a lot to promote modern high-tech businesses in Russia, has accumulated positive experience in commercialising scientific research results and, what is essential, has opened up wide opportunities for the intellectual and creative self-realisation of enthusiastic talented people, young entrepreneurs and researchers.
It is a pleasure to see such a large and much-needed project implemented. Today there are over 2,500 innovative companies at Skolkovo, and their products are popular on the domestic market and abroad. The foundation plays an active part in addressing tasks related to modernising the national economy and social sphere and implementing digital technologies in everyday life.
I am confident that energy, initiative and ambition to acquire new knowledge and skills will continue to help you to grow professionally and succeed.”
Vladimir Putin also wished a constructive and substantive discussion to the guests of the Open Innovations Moscow International Forum of Innovative Development scheduled to take place online on October 19–21.
