Skoltech’s new partnerships: mechanical engineering, IT and more

6 Nov '12
Skoltech, the new Skolkovo-based technology university, has inked agreements with two major Russian companies, Uralvagonzavod (Urals, mechanical engineering) and Oboronprom (a Moscow-based defense industry conglomerate), and with Intel calling for R&D partnerships in new material development, biomed, IT, energy, and hydrocarbon production and refining, the Skolkovo Foundation website reports.

In addition, the partners have reportedly agreed to develop joint educational curricula to train world-class specialists in their respective areas in Russia.

The agreement was signed last week at the Open Innovation international forum in Moscow.

With the Russian companies, Skoltech, also known as the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, expects to collaborate primarily in the development of new advanced heavy-duty materials and in mechanical engineering related R&D. With Intel, the university will focus on IT research.
