New Russian technoparks to come
Russia has been granted $100 million from the World Bank to develop new technoparks in high technology areas.
Seven technoparks are under discussion: in Tomsk, Novosibirsk, the Moscow region and Kazan. According to EETimes $20 million had already been received to create a technopark in St. Petersburg on the core of the Bonch-Bruevich Telecommunications University. The technopark has also drawn interest from Google who is planning to establish a base there after 2008.
