Discussing Innovation Centers with Russia Vice Rektors


Alexander Bedny & Kendrick White, two Vice Rectors from The University of Nizhny Novgorod on the Russia tour to Minnesota.   Our conversation explored potential partnership opportunities to bring cohorts of top Russia researchers to the UMN to help commercialize their technology to benefit all countries.   NNU has taken the lead in Russia to create its first Proof of Concept center within a university that can help mature business models and valuation around advanced research technology.    These best practices where built upon partnerships with MIT and other POCs in the USA and are now being replicated in over ten Universities in Russia.    Building “international corridors to the other countries is a key component of the strategy to move Russia to a leadership position in global innovation.
