Intel and Russia’s Technopark Association signed an agreement last week covering cooperation in the support of innovation and the development of the country’s high-tech ecosystem, CRN Russia reports.
The agreement was signed during the Third International Business Summit by the Director of Operations for Intel Russia and Scandinavia Daria Kiryanova and Director of the Technopark Association Andrei Shpilenko.
The signing took place in the presence of representatives from Russia’s Ministry of Communications and Mass Media, the government of the Nizhny Novgorod region and the press.
Cooperation between the Santa Clara-based Intel, one of the world’s largest semiconductor chip makers, and the Technopark Association, a member of ISAP, covers the development and implementation of enterprise management systems, the introduction of modern HR methodologies, training and skills development, the adaptation and use of best practices for building an effective innovation infrastructure as well as improving interaction between existing mentors and young entrepreneurs.
The parties intend to work together to assess innovative projects by the members of the Technopark Association, which includes campuses across Russia.
Another important area of cooperation will be the analysis of development plans for Russian industrial parks and the refinement of the methodology, criteria, data collection and processing of the information used to create a unique national ranking of Russian technoparks.
“Intel predicts excellent results for the cooperation with the Technopark Association,”
said Intel’s Kiryanova.
“We have already begun planning activities to share past experiences, discuss issues surrounding the future of technology parks in Russia and strategies for solving existing problems. The development of innovative entrepreneurship is a prerequisite for accelerating the growth of the Russian economy, so Intel is committed to supporting domestic technology parks and business incubators.”
“Intel, being the undisputed leader in its segment, has accumulated a number of unique, time-tested algorithms for the creation and implementation of high-tech products,”
“The company’s experience, coupled with its methodological approaches, will be used in training programs to allow the efficiency of the technoparks to be improved.”
