www.ModernRussia.com factsheet: In February 2010, President Dmitry Medvedev unveiled an initiative to establish a hub for high-technology research and business in Skolkovo, designed to spur innovation in Russia. President Medvedev called this project “a kind of prototype city of the future, which should become a major testing ground for new economic policy."

The initiative – referred to in the Russian press as “Innograd” - is part of the government’s modernization agenda, which aims to foster a new knowledge-based economy. In a March 23 Modernization Commission meeting, the President said that Innograd would not produce “toys for eggheads,” but new technologies that will “help cut costs, raise enterprises' revenue, improve labor conditions and the environment.” President Medvedev discouraged any comparison with Silicon Valley in California, saying “that’s probably not the right comparison anyway – but the idea is precisely to create a similar sort of independent, separate center for research and subsequent commercialization of the results.”
