The information technology business is one of the fastest growing and most profitable sectors in the world economy today and information technology itself is a powerful lever for invigorating and improving national companies’ competitiveness.
Russia has the specialists it needs and has already made a lot of scientific progress in this area. If the country makes competent and effective use of its possibilities it could make real headway in information technology.
Technology parks in the information technology sector are market projects in every sense and their work should be built on the principles of competitiveness and profitability.
Making advances in the area of innovation requires analysis of Russian and foreign experience in creating technology parks, developing modern instruments for state support for scientific centres and mapping out a clear forecast of long-term trends and demands in the Russian and world economies.
Developing the information sector infrastructure calls for an effective partnership between science, business and the state.
