Science town Koltsovo

Koltsovo is a town established in 1974 with the Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology Vector, as a mainstay. In 2003 Koltsovo was assigned with the status of the Science town of the Russian Federation due to its strong research and production complex, solid innovative activity, up-to-date research and developments, large proportion of educated and high-skilled residents. Not only is Koltsovo a comfortable place for living, it is also abundant with biotechnology enterprises, elements of innovation infrastructure, including incubator, Biotechnopark, Center for collective usage, and Innovation center Koltsovo. The latest public initiative promotes regional biopharmaceutical cluster with the center in Koltsovo.
