An innovative mess in the Sverdlovsk region

Abstract:
The proposal is that this hub will unite business incubators, venture capital funds, funds that support small and medium businesses in the Sverdlovsk region, partner banks, a center for infrastructure, and other organizations. In particular, work is underway in the region to open representative offices of the Bortnik Fund and the Rosnano corporation. Government officials are currently trying to use their website to organize all the innovation proposals that seem fairly promising. They are focusing on 142 projects, and, according to Maksim Godovy, that number will be up to 500 by the end of the year.

But it turns out that not even those who are in the business of developing new technology appreciate the government officials' feverish work to create high-tech companies. Some of them didn't even know what the regional authorities were doing. Vladimir Shur, the director of the Modern Nanotechnology shared-access center, told RusBusinessNews that all of his efforts are focused right now on creating a nanotechnology center. The project, which will cost 1.5 billion rubles, is being planned jointly with the Rosnano corporation, the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ural Federal University, and private companies. "If it works out, this will be the first serious infrastructure project in the region that's aimed at commercializing new ideas right up to the sale of finished products," notes the scientist. "We're supposed to make our application to Rosnano in October, so I just don't have time to worry about some future infrastructure hub for small and medium businesses."
