Questions for the Skolkovo Foundation


Given the changing landscape of global markets, the role of prominent development institutions is undergoing changes. Today, the focus is on solutions and developments that aim to ensure the country’s independence from imports in information technology, medicine, energy efficiency, and industry.
What role do development institutions play in the struggle for technological sovereignty? How is the government helping tech businesses today? Can companies adapt to the needs of the domestic market?
In the impromptu ring of the Innovation Space, leaders from the Skolkovo Foundation will answer some of the most pressing questions from startups, scientists, students, and the media. In turn, Skolkovo residents and project founders will answer questions from development institutions.
Questions include:
● The Skolkovo Foundation has always been associated with grants and support for companies in their early stages. Today, funding is shrinking and is low as it’s ever been. What’s next?
● Startups view any opportunity to leave the Russian market today as a chance and a golden ticket even though the Russian market has all kinds of new niches and earning opportunities today that did not exist a year ago. How can we change attitudes to incentivize companies to meet the demand in Russia?
● No company will achieve results without making its own efforts towards development. By shifting responsibility for the result to a development institution, it’s impossible to become a unicorn in your industry or simply a commercially successful company. How can we educate young tech entrepreneurs to be proactive and is this possible? Or does it depend solely on the personal qualities of the founder?

Igor Drozdov — Chairman of the Board, Skolkovo Foundation

Friends of Cities: Will Russian Cities be Sustainable and Innovative in the New Reality?


The global community had been largely focusing on the new urban development agenda and the goal of ensuring the sustainable development of innovative cities prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the pandemic restrictions and the geopolitical fault that has emerged along the North–South line two years later, global cities are increasingly focusing on their own autonomous development, and the concept of ‘sustainability’ has taken on a slightly different meaning.
How can Russian cities meet the criteria for sustainable development in the new realities of diminished global food and energy? What role does technology play in this? How will the new waves of the pandemic affect the restructuring of urban agglomerations? What experience can Moscow, members of the new generation of entrepreneurs, and Friends For Leadership leaders offer the world?

Alexey Bondaruk — Deputy Director, Moscow Department of Foreign Economic and International Relations
Sharifah Norizah — Chief Executive Officer, Asian Youth Network Resources, Regional Caucus Coordinator, Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY)

Technological Entrepreneurship at Universities: Is It Eroding the Educational Process or a Necessity of the Times?

Social Platform of Roscongress Foundation - Innosocium Foundation

Technological entrepreneurship is one of the powerful drivers of economic development all around the world. The development of innovative products and solutions provides a country with technological sovereignty and competitiveness in the global market. Some believe that the development of technological entrepreneurship can be intensified by integrating it into the university environment. Students are the ones with their flexible thinking, fresh hard skills, and an interest in new professions who will be able to generate ideas for tech startups and take them to the market. For this, though, it is crucial to support young people’s interests and provide them with the necessary skills: training and accelerators, teaching them approaches to developing promising ideas, and raising investment. The ‘Platform of University Technological Entrepreneurship’ federal project being implemented by the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education aims to provide this support at Russian universities. However, not all representatives of the university community view this initiative favourably. Some experts believe that teaching entrepreneurship at universities will diminish the quality of education by distracting students from mastering core subjects.

What tools do Russian universities have today to develop technological entrepreneurship? How are they being integrated into the educational process? Should existing entrepreneurs be involved in teaching activities? How can the trend of developing start-up movements impact university curricula? Can tech entrepreneurship be taught? What are the benefits and risks of university-based tech entrepreneurship for students, the university, and the state? What role do government support measures play in developing tech entrepreneurship? How can we form a community of young entrepreneurs and help them start their professional path? How can we attract business to develop the startup movement?
