Innovation


Kaliningrad region

Geographically, the major innovation projects and organizations of the region are concentrated in the city of Kaliningrad. However, two other towns in the region have been recently demonstrating significant dynamism and innovation: Gurievsk, which is located just outside the city of Kaliningrad and Gusev, which has welcomed a number of innovative enterprises.

region also has two non-commercial partnership projects: 'Kaliningrad Centre for Innovation and Technology' and 'Kaliningrad Technology Transfer Centre'. Other organizations that have to be mentioned include the Chamber of Commerce of the Kaliningrad Region, ‘Baltica’ Innovation and Technology Center, SME Support Foundation and “Innovation Park” of IKSUR. One of the main features of innovation development is the fully-functioning ‘science-industrygovernment’ network. During 2009, the Russian Federation adopted a Federal Law on the creation of firms with participation of universities and research institutes. As a result, several of the Kaliningrad higher educational establishments have already launched a number of pilot start-ups. The main source of financial support for the innovative enterprises in the region is the Federal Foundation for Development of Innovative SMEs.

The Council for Scientific and Technological Policy, headed by the Minister of Economy of the Kaliningrad region is in charge of formulating the region's scientific The dynamic development of and innovation policy. In addition, the Kaliningrad’s IT sector has led to
