Edward Crawley, president of the Skolkvotech Univerity answered a question to the World Economic Forum-2012 participants

“My job is to create in RF a new institution, centered around science, technology and innovation.

I care about taking scientific discoveries and work with young bright students and faculty members to produce goods and services that will make life interesting and health better. And contribute to sustainable development of our nations.

I’ve chosen to do it in the Russian Feration because I was asked by this wonderful new program in Russia called Skolkovo, which is an all new attempt to build an intense region of an economic development, that will incorporate start-ups, large companies and university based on technology.”
