Support The Moscow Times!

Skolkovo Institute Launched

The Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology has launched its first academic year, the institute said Monday.

Skolkovo Tech president Edward Crawley kicked off the inaugural SkTech/MIT Innovation Workshop, an intensive four-week course. Skolkovo Tech's Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, designed the course specifically for Skolkovo Tech students to teach them how to bridge the gap between technological prowess and creating a broad impact.

From September, the students will spend an academic year abroad at one of four leading research universities — Imperial College in London, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology or MIT — before returning to Skolkovo Tech for the next two years of their program.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
