It looks like political upheavals do not strongly affect the climate of Russian-American cooperation in the innovation sphere.
This thesis does not just sound on our site from the Russian experts in the commercialization of innovation, we found a confirmation in an exclusive comment we received from the US Embassy in Russia:
“Bringing business people together is the sole mission of the U.S. Commercial Service, an agency of the Department of Commerce, which actively helps American companies assess and enter new markets overseas. American companies’ innovative, cutting edge technology has driven economic growth, and Russian firms continue to seek partnerships with American companies to improve competitiveness and productivity.
In Russia, our teams in Moscow and St. Petersburg have led scores of Russian business people to trade shows in Europe and the United States to introduce leading technologies in industries as varied as mining and medical devices. The Commercial Service has also produced a steady stream of events promoting everything from American franchises and rail equipment to energy efficient controllers and beauty products.”
Will this factor to become one of the triggers to improve US-Russian relations in the future, time will tell.
