ANNUAL EXECUTIVE REPORT 2011 SUMMARY Technopark Technopark Skolkovo aspires to create the infrastructure for successful development of innovation business and commercialization of the technologies of participant companies. Imagine that you come to your new place of employment where everything is new to you. Your experience tells you that it will take you a lot of your valuable time to organize your work and to understand the ins and outs of it. However, luckily, you find out that everything has been taken care of: your computer is connected and running, your printer has paper in it, you have all handbooks and manuals handy, and even the accounting department has no questions to you because they have all your documents and files. All you need to do is to get down to work. This is exactly the way it is going to be at Technopark: it has all the conditions for creative innovative activity, from cloud IT services to cleaning services. 22

Technopark’s mission is to create the infrastructure for successful development of innovation business and commercialization of the technologies of participant companies.

ANNUAL EXECUTIVE REPORT 2011 SUMMARY Innocity Innocity is a neologism of the modern Russian language. It means “an innovation city.” Even the term “innovation” is not quite clear to many people in this country. For instance, one might say that even though people have been improving the TV set, only transition to digital broadcasting can be considered an innovation; perhaps, the remote control can be counted as one, too. Innovations are radical changes that totally transform life in a given area. Today, such radical changes happen more and more often. Unfortunately, Russia by far too seldom becomes the cradle of innovations. However, the good news is, the Skolkovo Innovation Centre, or Skolkovo Innocity, was created to help Russian science, and this way the Russian state and economy as well, reach the forefront of innovations. Russia witnessed that in the time past: it made gigantic strides forward after establishment of the research centers near Novosibirsk, in Obninsk, Dubna, and Sarov. Now is the time for Skolkovo. The country pins many hopes on Innocity and is making large investments into its development. Oftentimes, it is noted humorously that even downtown Moscow will move closer to Skolkovo. 32

SkTech is planned to become a model of a Russian new generation university created on the basis of the following principles and goals: • integration of research and education within a wide range of interdisciplinary scientific, engineering and innovative programs; • active participation of students in research work in partnership and under the supervision of the leading researchers; • creation of opportunities for commercialization of research results. FORMATION OF RESEARCH CENTERS IN SKTECH On December 21, 2011 SkTech announced the first international competition for the development of research centers. At least 15 research centers are planned to be created in five strategic areas of the Skolkovo research activities. The volume of annual financing of each such center will be from USD 6 to 12 mln. SkTech plans to support advanced research projects aimed at the practical use of received results that stimulate the economic development and innovations. Research may be carried out within one of the strategic areas, at the boundary or at the intersection of one or more fields of research. Development of new areas and new understanding of the scope and significance of activities at each of these areas is possible. Each research center will carry out its work in partnership with one or several foreign and Russian institutes and with the assistance of the Skolkovo employees. The work of research centers should result in a new transformational science and technologies, which, using the elements of the Skolkovo ecosystem, will turn into goods and services in demand.

SKTECH STUDENTS SkTech starts admission of the first students for participation in the master’s degree program. SkTech will select 20 program finalists based on the open competition and will provide study grants to the competition winners. The pilot year of the education development in SkTech will be based on this program. The unique three-year master’s degree program will give a chance to 20 best graduates of Russian universities to receive one-year training at the international research institute and then return to SkTech to complete their study and earn the master’s degree in science and technology. Before proceeding with the training at the international research institute, the students will have an opportunity, together with the selected international group of students, to get an intensive introductory course of training in leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation. In the summer of 2013, the group of 20 students will return to the Skolkovo campus and take part in planning of SkTech educational programs. 81

ANNUAL REPORT – 2011 RESULTS COMMERCIALIZATION: PROGRAMS OF THE INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP CENTER The Innovation Sponsorship Program (ISP) is called to help SkTech researchers reduce the gap between laboratory research and entrance to the market and to act as a catalyst for innovations and entrepreneurship in the research environment. Many Russian research groups experience difficulties when it comes to practical application of research results (commercialization) due to the experience gap and lack of funding for early stages of commercialization. ISP will finance such transitional research, scientific and technical projects. It will help find evidence of the concept viability, and assist in promoting technologies towards commercialization. For example, it will assist in determining potential market opportunities, managing intellectual property and, if possible, developing personnel. ISP has been developed and will be implemented in close cooperation with MIT that has wide experience with similar programs (for example, Deshpande Center Innovative Research Grants). In 2012, ISP will function in a pilot mode as SkTech research centers are not yet created. The program will focus on two or three research groups in Russian higher educational institutions. The financial aid will be given in the form of one-year grants in the amount of up to RUB 3 mln. The first grants are planned to be awarded in the summer of 2012. The data received during the work with the first grants will be used while launching commercialization programs for SkTech. The grant winners of ISP pilot stage will undergo commercialization training and receive help at all stages of their work. 82

ENDOWMENT AS A BASIS FOR SKTECH DEVELOPMENT On December 19, 2011 SkTech in collaboration with the Skolkovo Foundation and the Russian business newspaper Vedomosti held an international conference dedicated to financing of research universities, support of SkTech initiatives and partnership of universities and companies in Russia and abroad. Edward F. Crawley, SkTech President, presented a plan for creating the Endowment Institute.

ANNUAL REPORT – 2011 RESULTS Skolkovo School MISSION, GOALS, MAIN PRINCIPLES The third component of the educational environment is Skolkovo School. Based on the plan of the project authors, creating the Center of development and commercialization of new technologies “Skolkovo” also assumes the creation of a modern city where the best models of the urban environment organiza- tion and up-to-date models of social services provi- sion will be realized. In particular, the advanced sys- tem of preschool and school education – Skolkovo School will be built in Skolkovo City. The mission and goals of the new school have been formulated by Dmitry Medvedev as follows: “At Skolkovo School, children should have the oppor- tunity to unlock their abilities, to prepare for life in high-tech competitive world”, provided that “... it will be fascinating and interesting to study at school if the school becomes not only a center of compulsory education, but also a self-development, creativity and sports center”. 90

Such innovation model of the preschool and school edu- cation system assumes the construction of the integrated system that includes several educational levels (early development, preschool and school levels) and education forms (formal and informal – extracurricular and family education). A characteristic feature of this model is an individualized educational process. The model created in Skolkovo can become one of the prototypes for the mass school system in Russia. The model is based on the most advanced developments in the area of: • educational process individualization (group-centered process is transformed into learner-centered pro- cess); • developmental education; • organization of education space and environment; • new information technologies. 91

ANNUAL REPORT – 2011 RESULTS An important feature is that we build one school for a very diverse society. It will be large and at the same time very flexible. Individualization is a fundamental feature of the concept. It is very important to remove time constraints – so that pupils could work with their own speed. There are very few jobs in adult life that require the performance of certain operations within 20 instead of, say, 40 seconds. We need to think over the matter of school load. The slogan of last years is that our children are overloaded at school. This is bad. However, underloading can be even worse. We will bring up idlers. CONCEPT A. Semenov, Rector of the Moscow In September-December 2011 the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation and the company Institute of Open Education, Head of the Microsoft held a concept contest for the creation of Skolkovo School. The organizers received 202 bids writing team – the winner of the Skolkovo from 47 Russian regions and five other countries. By School concept contest results of the first stage of the contest, 33 bids were selected. As a result of unification of writing teams, 26 developed concepts were submitted to the contest committee for review. Experts from the USA, Belarus, Lithuania, Germany, and the UK were also involved in the development of concepts. The contest winner was the concept of an educational complex “Skolkovo School” presented by the 92

international writing team led by Alexey Semenov, Rector of the Moscow Institute of Open Education. The bid received the highest evaluation from both Russian and foreign experts. This concept will form the basis of the project of Skolkovo preschool and school education system. The contest committee also recommended to use 12 concepts recognized as contest winners as a basis for developing educational projects in Russian regions. The authors of many concepts paid attention to the issue of how the school will develop and support present competencies and initiatives of students, including technological and entrepreneurial ones. The authors also note that the integrity of the technological competence formation is just the beginning of the road for the major part of children. It is important that the development of the above-mentioned competencies during the last years of schooling will be supported by higher education institutions. The idea of creating a network of innovative The contest committee Skolkovo schools found wide support in the country. The contest committee received more than 40 letters received more than 40 evidencing the readiness of regional and municipal authorities to take part in the realization of the letters evidencing the Skolkovo School project. There is an understanding in the country that it is possible and necessary to readiness of regional teach in a new way in the conditions of a rapidly and municipal authori- changing world, that a student has the right of choice and is not obliged “to fit into the system”: on ties to take part in the the contrary, the system should take account of his educational and other needs.

ANNUAL REPORT – 2011 RESULTS Risk Management at the Skolkovo Innovation Center The activity of the future Skolkovo Innovation Center, despite professionalism and authority of the people responsible for its creation and development, is, to a certain degree, a priori, connected with uncertainty and risks. To timely identify and manage risks, in 2011 the Foundation started developing and introducing the corporate risk management system (RMS). The system complies with the principles set out in the international risk management standards ISO31000:2009 and COSO:ERM and is aimed at strengthening the Foundation’s risk- oriented culture. MAIN PRINCIPLES OF RISK MANAGEMENT Inseparability Risk management is an inseparable part of all processes occurring within a company, and is within the scope of staff accountability. Consistency Risk management should be systematic and and regularity regular, i.e. there should be a system of risk management measures carried out on a regular basis. Accuracy and Risk management should be based on completeness information that is accurate and complete at of information a specific point in time. Dynamism Risk management is a continuous process, and continuity which is constantly adapting to changing conditions under the influence of various factors and affecting both risks and risk management measures. 98

ANNUAL REPORT – 2011 RESULTS FURTHER PLANS TO IMPROVE THE RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM A number of measures aimed at further development of risk-oriented culture and integration of the risk management system elements into business processes of the Foundation is planned for the year 2012. The priority areas for the development of the Foundation’s RMS are as follows: •training – instructional seminars on risk management are planned to be held for the Foundation’s management team and employees; •integration into work processes – the risk management elements are planned to be integrated into existing work processes of the Foundation. The plans to integrate the risk analysis into the procurement process are being worked out. This will allow to better assess financial and reputational risks of counterparts and therefore cut the likelihood of working with unscrupulous suppliers; •update of the innovation center’s risk profile – the innovation center’s risk profile is planned to be updated within 2012. This will allow to identify and manage risks that were not identified earlier or were insignificant; •formation of risk profiles for the Foundation’s subsidiaries – identification and analysis of risks are planned to be started in 2012. As a result, the risk profiles displaying the main risks of subsidiaries should be formulated; •risk reporting – within 2012; both consolidated risk reports and detailed reports on individual risk management are planned to be prepared. In 2011, the Foundation employees, as part of the All-Russian congress of the Integration Center of Economic Innovations, held a session “Risk Management as a Tool for Commercialization of Ideas”. In 2012, the Technopark employees plan to start a series of seminars and webinars on risk management for participating companies of Skolkovo. 100

RISK ANALYSIS IN THE PROCESS OF GRANT ISSUE The Foundation carries out the risk analysis of innovative projects. The risk analysis and the readiness of participating companies to actively manage the risks are one of the criteria used for evaluating a project applied for a grant. When applying for the status of participant, the applicant analyzes the risks of the project and documents them in the investment memorandum template, which is later submitted to the Foundation. The Foundation services and external experts analyze the risks when reviewing a project. Scientific, technical and market risks are identified by the Foundation experts. The risks of inefficient and improper use of funds, as well as the risks of double financing are identified by the Financial Department of the Foundation and the security service. The risks in the field of intellectual property protection are identified by the Intellectual Property Administration of the Foundation. The analysis of the innovation project risks is summarized by the investment service and then included in the project’s assessment sheet, which allows the grant committee to examine the project with due account for the information on risks. The cluster employees together with the representatives of participating companies work out risk management measures and include relevant information in a draft resolution of the PROPERTY RISKS INSURANCE grant committee. At the end of 2011, LLC “United Directorate for Management of Assets and Services of the Center of Development and Commercialization of New Technologies RISK MANAGEMENT IN PARTICIPATING COMPANIES (Skolkovo Innovation Center)”, the The activities of the Skolkovo Innovation Center Foundation’s subsidiary, developed the participants is also connected with a high degree of Skolkovo Property Insurance Policy.
