As part of the agreements between the parties, the NMG will receive priority access to the resources and innovative technologies of the Foundation's residents.

As part of the partnership agreement, NMG will begin working with Skolkovo in the field of Internet technologies, Big Data and content production technologies, including in the areas of computer graphics, special effects and virtual reality.

Olga Paskina, CEO of NMG: "Developing digital products and working with young talent are important sectors for the National Media Group. We expect that our partnership with the Foundation will strengthen both areas."

Konstantin Parshin, Skolkovo Foundation Vice President, Executive Director of IT Cluster: "We see great prospects for our partnership with NMG. First, the company is doing interesting things with Big Data that can be applied beyond the media industry. Secondly, cooperation with such a strong player will stimulate the development of VR/AR/Media, which is a fairly new area at Skolkovo. The processing of large amounts of information, and video in particular, is a sought-after area for young professionals, and there is still considerable potential for significant breakthroughs."
