The Information and Consulting Center is the first in Saint-Petersburg communication platform for innovative companies providing the possibilities for business incubation.

- Partnership between RUSNANO and the Center became the first step in implementation of the Agreement on Cooperation between the Corporation and Saint-Petersburg signed in Moscow on the 23rd of December, - said Yevgeny Yevdokimov. - At once after New Year vacations the Center's officials will pass through the training in RUSNANO, which will allow them to inform our potential applicants and investors about the required information on the terms and conditions of partnership with the Corporation and our requirements made for the applications. We reckon on that the Center's activity will help RUSNANO to increase the number and quality of applications submitted from Saint-Petersburg. This Information and Consulting Center is our first experience. In case it turns out to be successful, the Corporation will be able to consider a possibility of launching similar projects in other regions of Russia as well.
