The decree increases the amount of subsidies on creation of Phystechpark under Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) from 150 to 265.8 million rubles.
In 2013 Minsvyaz reviewed terms of allocating budget resources within the program “Creation in the Russian Federation technoparks in sphere of high technologies” and introduced competitive procedure of selecting participants. Thus, transparency of the program was significantly improved and the amount of planned constructing increased.
In autumn of 2013 Moscow with the project of Phystechpark became one of the winners of open competition on allocating of subsidies within the complex program on creation of technoparks.
Subsidies to Phystechpark were increased due to reallocation of savings in other regions on the project with maximum amount of regional co-financing. At the same time the total budget of the project remain the same.
“We often talk about the necessity of increasing the number of highly-qualified IT specialists in Russia. Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology is one of leading global engineering institutions, which gave our country many specialists and entrepreneurs in IT sphere. We hope that constructing of technopark and its close cooperation with the leading university will help us to achieve our strategic goal,” said Nikolay Nikiforov. He also added that it is planned to finalize constructing of six new technoparks on 2014.
Program “Creation in the Russian Federation technoparks in sphere of high technologies” operates from 2007 to 2014. More than 11 billion rubles were provided to regions for co-financing of technoparks constructing within this program. According to plans the total square of technoparks will be more than 400,000 square meters. More than 800 high-tech companies with nearly 25,000 working places will be allocated there.
The program will be finalized in 2014, however, during the next few years regions should meet several economic indexes, connected with development of ecosystem and effectiveness of technoparks. In 2018 nearly 90% of working places should be occupied and their budget effectiveness should be at least 55%, share of export in revenue of residents at least 12%.
Six new technoparks will be launched till the end of 2014 in Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Saransk, Penza, Sverdlovsk Oblast and Tolyatti. Technoparks in Moscow and Saransk will be constructed under Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and Ural Federal University, respectively.
Phystechpark is being created since December of 2013 in Severny inhabited locality near Dolgoprudny and campus of MIPT — one of Russian leading universities. It is planned to finalize constructing of this technopark till the end of 2014. Its total square will be nearly 30.7 thousand square meters, capable to allocate 25 companies with 1300 highly-productive working places.
