4 Skoltech at a Glance A unique Russian institution in an international context 200 faculty, 300 post-docs, 1200 graduate students by the end of the decade Polarized around science, engineering and technology Addressing problems and issues in IT, Energy, Biomedicine, Space and Nuclear With strong programs in support of innovation and entrepreneurship On a new campus, to be build in Skolkovo An important part of the Skolkovo innovation ecosystem

5 Mission – Accelerating Innovation To have educational, scholarly and economic impact in the Russian Federation and around the world, By educating leading graduate students and conducting research programs to address key challenges in science, technology, engineering and innovation Using a fusion of exceptional talent, and building the university to be an integral part of the Skolkovo innovation ecosystem 5

6 High Priority Research Investments Biomedicine: – Computational and systems biology – Immunology and infectious disease – Gene- and nano-medicine – Regenerative medicine Energy: – Hydrocarbon fuel production and transportation – Hydrocarbon processing – Electrical power systems generation and distribution – Electrical energy storage Nuclear: – Nuclear energy safety – Materials for extreme environments – Non-energy applications IT: – Machine learning and AI – Advanced computing systems – Big Data – Electronics materials and device – Quantum physics/technology Space: – Supporting humans in long term space exploration – Small satellites – Utilization of space data Cross-cutting: – Advanced materials – Computational and data- intensive science & engineering – Human engineering and cognition * Topics in italics are under negotiations

7 Research With a Consideration of Innovation Goal: Discover new ideas and develop new technologies that address the pressing needs of members of society and society as a whole, and which build upon fundamental science and technology, yet are guided by a consideration of innovation Strategy: Create at least 15 Centers for Research, Innovation and Education (CREI): – International collaborative efforts partnering Skoltech with both international and Russian institutes (Universities and RAS) – Concentrated excellence in one of the 5 strategic themes, solving real problems in IT, Energy, Biomedicine, Space and Nuclear – Build capacity at Skoltech and attract top talent – Integrate education and accelerate innovation Each center funded at 6-12 MUSD/year 7

8 Center for Research, Education and Innovation - CREI During build up – Create fully operational Skoltech part of CREI including people, facilities, education and research programs. – Connect the Russian scientific and industrial landscape with the leading international researchers in their fields. At steady state – Create transformational new science and technology as part of international research collaboration. – Provide an initial base for and connections with Skoltech’s entrepreneurship and innovation activities. – Integrate and contribute to graduate education at Skoltech through development of educational curricula, material, and approaches.
