We are talking about “SKOLKOVO”, “RVC”, “RUSNANO”, “VEB Innovations”, the Bortnik Foundation, and other similar state organizations which are engaged in support of innovations in Russia.
“We see that in some cases it’s definitely needed. There were some suggestions on this, they haven’t worked with all departments, supervising the activities of individual organizations, this will be done in the next few weeks and proposals will be presented,” – said Dvorkovich.
