Un projet TOP DOWN et la culture de l'innovation en Russie
Can you really rattle with a bag of gold to attrackt multi-billion dollar corporations into investing in a new Russian "Silicon Valley" initiative? Is this really the way to revitalise the poor state of Russian Science? Skolkovo Valley: Why it is needed? From a government point of view - currently Skolkovo is mainly President Medvedev's pet project - there are a number of factors and goals to be achieved by the newly - build from scratch - scientific Skolkovo City. Russia has inherited a rich scientific base from Soviet times, but it has had trouble drawing foreign investment and commercializing homegrown scientific innovations.

The Russian president has been touring California’s Silicon Valley for the last two days, meeting with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Russian immigrants, and the heads of Twitter, Cisco and Apple, among others. His government is spending the equivalent of millions of dollars to try to build a high-tech center outside of Moscow, called Skolkovo, that will shake up Russia’s bureaucracy and give educated Russians, of which there are many, the opportunity to innovate and start companies the way Americans do. “In a very good way, I’m sort of jealous of you all,” he told a group of students and faculty at Stanford this afternoon, “because you have the opportunity to learn, teach, make money, do what you love and see your work building…”
Reading List An annotated Foreign Affairs syllabus on Russian politics. Over the past decade, Russian foreign policy has experienced a number of dramatic shifts. Following 9/11, Russia pursued a strategic partnership with the United States, pledging cooperation in Afghanistan while downplaying its long-standing opposition to NATO expansion and European missile defense. But then, during Vladimir Putin’s second presidential term, Russia took advantage of rising energy prices to push back against the United States and the West, seeking to undermine pro-Western regimes in Georgia and Ukraine, and even threatening to point nuclear missiles at European countries that hosted U.S. missile defense facilities. The resurgence of Russian power in opposition to the United States and the European Union reached its apex with the August 2008 war in Georgia.
Russia has emerged in the twenty first century as a self confident and determined country. It continues to be recognized as a major power. It is a significant producer of weapons, and maintains a nuclear arsenal to boot. And it is a major producer of oil and gas. High oil and gas prices and an exponential increase in the sale of weapons during the period 2005-2008 have enabled Russia to play a more assertive role in global affairs. However, the Russia-Georgia conflict of 2008 and the onset of the global economic crisis have adversely impacted the Russian economy.

Skolkovo: Russia’s Silicon Valley? | beyondbrics | News and views on emerging markets from the Financial TimesDmitry Medvedev, Russia’s president, gave a rousing speech at this weekend’s St Petersburg Economic Forum but the conference also had two other breakout stars: Arkady Volozh and Yuri Milner, champions of the Russian internet. Through their respective start-ups, Yandex and Mail.ru, the two have successfully proven that Russian internet groups can secure billion-dollar valuations abroad, and that the country has more to offer investors than natural resources.

To answer the question so far, Russia’s leaders has been touting Skolkovo, its own version of Silicon Valley, which is meant as a way to both diversify the country’s economy and help foster a new generation of Russian entrepreneurs like Volozh and Milner.
