Innopolis – Tatarstan, Russia
Presented by Innopolis
INNOPOLIS aims to be the future IT capital of Russia. Being built in the Republic of Tatarstan at the confluence of the Volga and Sviyaga rivers, it is the first city in the young history of the Russian Federation to be constructed completely from scratch. Masterplanned by Singapore-based RSP Architects Planners & Engineers, Innopolis is expected to have a population of 155,000 people by the year 2030, of which 60,000 will be highly qualified specialists. The first phase, providing accommodation for 5,000 people with associated infrastructure, is due for completion in 2015. Residents of the Innopolis Special Economic Zone (SEZ) will have access to world-class infrastructure, including high-tech, multi-functional Technopark complexes offering modern office space, R&D centres and advanced conference facilities.
