As reported in IVC:
The Ariel University Center is slated to sign a partnership with Moscow’s Skolkovo high-tech center tomorrow that would give Israeli start-ups access to billions in Russian funding. The agreement, with Ariel University’s technology transfer company, will create a center called Skolkovo Gateway Israel, and is intended to serve as a gateway to the Russian Silicon Valley. The money will come from a billion-dollar fund set up by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. The partnership will also help pave the way for Israeli companies to enter Russia’s 141-million-person market.
