Tambov Region and Skolkovo Foundation to Sign Cooperation Agreement

A cooperation agreement between the Tambov Region administration and the Skolkovo Foundation is planned to be signed during the forum. The document envisages Skolkovo’s participation in the development of innovation infrastructure and projects in the region. The two sides will cooperate in the spheres of IT and biomedicine, healthcare, social welfare, agriculture, and the agroindustrial complex. The signing of the agreement is a new step in the development of interaction between the parties, which has been growing during recent years. For example, the Tambov Region administration and Skolkovo Foundation jointly organise the annual IT-Chernozemye competition for innovative IT projects. The idea of creating a business accelerator for a large agricultural holding in the Tambov Region is also currently being developed with Skolkovo’s participation.
