Within the Eastern Economic Forum, the RVC General Director Alexander Povalko and General Director of the Interstate Development Corporation (MKR) Ivan Polyakov signed an agreement to create a joint accelerator of technology start-ups based on GenerationS, including to maintain and modernize the infrastructure of the Arctic zone.
Under the partnership agreement, the experts of MCA and GenerationS will select and accelerate start-ups offering technologies in the field of information technology, telecommunications, communications equipment and infrastructure development for “new territories”.
"New Accelerator is the first program of its kind aimed at solving problems of poorly developed regions. The contribution of the Arctic zone to Russia's GDP exceeds 10%, with more than 20% of Russian exports from this territory. Maintaining and developing the infrastructure of the Arctic is one of the priority goals of the state policy; RVC is participating in its solution through the involvement of new technologies", said Alexander Povalko, the General Director of RVC.
“It is not by chance that we signed our Agreement within the framework of the Eastern Economic Forum. Our joint activity, first of all, will be focused on the creation of an innovation ecosystem and the development of effective tools to promote promising developments of Russian high-tech companies in international markets", emphasized Ivan Polyakov, the General Director of ICR.
The selection of projects in the accelerator MKR and GenerationS will begin before the end of 2018.
