@Himanshu, I dont think MIT will get any monetary benefits. I belive its more of goodwill gesture. Moreover SIST is not-for profit organisation.

How will MIT be involved with SIST? Will they help making the curriculum, collaborate with them or just provide guidance. Also what for MIT in all this.

Skolkovo, Russia's attempt at creating a flowering hi-tech educational, entrepreneurial and industrial base, is attracting several prominent Western entities, such as Siemens and GE. Earlier this month Russia's state-owned banking giant Sberbank said it will invest up to $800 million in Skolkovo and some 20 Russian companies received "residence" status there. And the tax laws have been eased for Skolkovo for companies investing there before 2014. All in all, given all the usual bureaucratic obstacles, do you think this will be a viable play to create a Silicon Valley in the Moscow region?
