Cisco’s support of the Russian Government’s modernization agenda got a big step forward this month. We recently announced the official opening of the Cisco Experience Center at the Skolkovo HyperCube – part of an overall effort to further develop an innovation ecosystem in Russia. This marks an important milestone in Cisco’s multi-year investment in sustainable innovation within the Russian Federation, which was announced three years ago by Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers.

 The Center will showcase leading Cisco technologies and become the main site for Cisco’s innovation programs in the Russian Federation. As part of this program, Cisco plans to launch a number of initiatives to support technological entrepreneurship – including training workshops, mentoring and other measures to provide start-ups with direct access to business experts and other members of the global innovation ecosystem. The Experience Center is also expected to become a platform for technological partnerships between Cisco and Russian entrepreneurs, who are encouraged to both test and enhance their products with Cisco solutions. On the education front, the Center will help to develop technological education in Russia and resources will become available to graduate and postgraduate students of Russian education and research institutions.

The Cisco Experience Center is divided into six technological zones:

Developments in Russia and around the globe continue to highlight the impact of technology on the development of cities. Innovation hubs serve as key components in building out a network of shareholders to collaborate on alleviating day-to-day pain points. It’s exciting to see how far Russia has come and the landscape of possibilities ahead of us.
