The message reads, in part:
“During all these years, the Foundation has successfully delivered on its mission to support the most promising studies and developments by Russian scientists and inventors, as well as to improve the public-private partnership mechanisms in science and innovation.
The Foundation’s programmes seek to shape a competitive market for high-technology products and services in our country, attract investment in innovative small businesses and create modern workplaces.
Of course, it is important that the Foundation invariably supports the development of students’ and schoolchildren’s scientific and engineering creativity and helps them implement their innovative projects and ideas.
I believe the professionalism and initiative of the Foundation’s employees will continue to facilitate the growth of the domestic science-intensive industry and help increase the number of companies and plants doing business in this area, which, ultimately, leads to the growth of Russia’s economic potential and the country’s stronger position in the world.”
