A new research project based out of the Moscow State University (MSU) is being developed. The research center has quickly been named “Russia’s Silicon Valley”.

A new research project, planned for construction on the territory of the Moscow State University (MSU), will be Russia’s equivalent to the famous Silicon Valley, said Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Development and Construction Marat Khusnullin on Saturday.

“There will be 430,000 m2 of research buildings, in fact, it will be our equivalent to the Silicon Valley,” Khusnullin told journalists.
