Moscow, Russia | Posted on March 21st, 2011

The four parties signed the document prior to a conference in Tomsk led by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin—Perfecting Instruments for Innovative Development in the Regions (Special Economic Zones, Technoparks, Science Cities).

"This project demonstrates how rapidly the high-technology sector is gaining momentum in the country's economy. For RUSNANO, technology transfer to Russia, transfer of knowledge from one of the world's leading telecommunications companies, makes this project especially interesting. Moreover, it offers Russian manufacturers a chance to become vendors of the latest equipment for fourth-generation telecom networks," said Executive Board Chairman Anatoly Chubais.

"Our company employs some of the country's best design engineers in radio-relay links, microwave frequency test instrumentation, and transmitter-receiver modules for active phased array antennas. We have every reason to believe that Micran will make valuable contributions to the success of this project," Micran General Director Victor Gyunter said. "The lead that Nokia Siemens Networks has in LTE will help us master essential skills quickly and produce really innovative and competitive products."

"This agreement demonstrates the strategic importance of Russian market for our company," added Kristina Tikhonova, General Director of Nokia Siemens Networks in Russia. "This is a tangible and substantial step in transferring to Russian companies competencies of developing innovative technologies. The government support for our R&D, engineering and production chain in Russia is very important for us. We are working towards establishing all the building blocks in Russia, from R&D to localized production and support centers for our solutions."


RUSNANO is an institution for development, created to accelerate growth of the nanotechnology industry in Russia. It carries out its mission through co-investment in nanotechnology projects with substantial economic potential or social benefit.
