We are pleased and proud to announce that on February 5, 2019 Knowledge Genesis Group of Companies received the status of participant in the project for creation and maintenance of the Skolkovo Innovation Center as a result of our successful completion of expert evaluation with the Smart Real-Time Enterprise Resource Management project (Smart Factory).
This was made possible thanks to our victory in Gazprom Neft Innovation Challenge 2018 — competition of innovative projects. The contest was held in IT-directions relevant for Russian oil and gas companies, and organized by the Skolkovo Foundation.
Our development was aimed at the first stage of the Digital Drilling project for implementation of modern smart technologies in automation of decision-making processes for well drilling. The project is being implemented by Gazprom Neft-Yamal (Tyumen) together with our company.
The Skolkovo Innovation Center is a high technology business area that is being built at Mozhaysky District in Moscow, Russia.
Charged with providing the catalyst for the diversification of the Russian economy, the Skolkovo Foundation’s overarching goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation, engendering a startup culture and encouraging venture capitalism.
The Skolkovo Foundation identified five key areas of potential growth: energy efficiency, strategic computer technologies, biomedicine, nuclear technologies and space technologies.
Dozens of innovative projects developed by Skolkovo startups have found success in international markets, in particular, equipment for the dynamic modeling of oil and gas fields, next-generation screen displays and laser systems for soft-tissue surgery.
Surveys have shown that Skolkovo startups are three times more likely to attract investment than non-members.
Participation in the Skolkovo project provides quite a wide range of benefits:
- Tax Benefits
- Customs Payments
- Simplified Procedure for the Foreign Applicants Recruitment
- Additional Financing
- Information and PR-support
In addition, participants receive unique opportunities for access to a superior work environment, including varied dining options, picturesque grounds, sports facilities, chemists, banks and easy transport links, expert advice and chance to discuss your project with a mentor, assistance in organizing events both in Russia and abroad, discounts on purchase of licensed software, sharing knowledge with other residents and startups.
We are sure that this status will open up a new chapter of our company’s development!
