Medvedev to discuss Skolkovo high-tech hub project implementation

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will on Monday preside over a meeting of the economic modernization commission and the board of trustees of the Skolkovo high-tech hub.

The meeting will focus on the preliminary results of work to create the research hub in the Moscow Region and prospects of its development.

Medvedev is leading efforts to modernize Russia, and is seeking foreign partners for Skolkovo, which is being built from scratch just 20 km (12 miles) outside of the Russian capital.

Last year, then-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger brought a delegation of Silicon Valley business leaders and investors to Skolkovo to help establish connections.

The Skolkovo center will focus on research in five priority spheres: energy, information technology, communication, biomedical research and nuclear technology.
