The National Research University Higher School of Economics (NRU HSE) and the St. Petersburg Technopark have concluded a cooperation agreement.

Signatories to this contract were Andrey Sokolov, General Director of the St. Petersburg Technopark OJSC, and Sergey Kadochnikov, Director at NRU HSE branch in St. Petersburg.

According to the St. Petersburg Technopark press service, such cooperation agreement shall serve to develop theoretical and practical knowledge and competences of the parties within the framework of the joint projects, as well as through consultations, scientific and educational activities. In such way, the Technopark and NRU HSE shall effectively share the body of practical and methodological knowledge and use it in everyday activities and in joint projects.

According to Sergey Kadochnikov, Director at the NRU HSE’s branch in St. Petersburg, such specialized educational department shall offer for the students both lectures and direct communication with the businessmen, as well as the opportunity to take part in project activities of the Technopark and its partners.

Andrey Sokolov, General Director at the St. Petersburg Technopark OJSC, is sure that this combination of competences shall have positive effects. Cooperation between the St. Petersburg Technopark, higher educational establishments and scientific centres was initiated in 2010 within the scope of student internship programs run by the Ingria Business Incubator. The project of university-based innovation ecosystem development and introduction of efficient technology transfer program in universities was implemented in 2014-2015 upon request from the RVC (the Russian Venture Company). Today the Technopark’s departments cooperate with 20+ Russian and foreign universities and scientific centres.
