The status will also allow Russky Technopark residents to take part in events and programs led by Skolkovo.

"For Russky Technopark the year 2019 was Skolkovo-led indeed, since our several residents became Skolkovo residents, a number of Open University Skolkovo events and strategically important meeting with Victor Vekselberg was conducted in Vladivostok. The year 2020 successfully continued this trend, when the project of both Skolkovo and Russky Technopark resident got the first prize at the Open Innovations Startup Tour held in FEFU. Finally, we are happy the September memorandum brought us the long-awaited regional operator status for the benefit of our residents", - said Russky Technopark CEO Dmitry Borovikov.
