About RUSNANO Group

RUSNANO Structure and Governing Bodies

The mission of RUSNANO Group is to build a competitive nanotechnology industry in Russia, using the capacities of the country’s own scientists and transfer of the latest technologies from abroad.

The Group gives first priority to efficiency, profitability, and pay-back of its investments. Therefore, Joint Stock Company RUSNANO uses a commercial approach, investing in potentially profitable nanotechnology projects. The task of the non-profit Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs is to assist in the development of all Russian nanotechnology companies, including those which are not part of the JSC RUSNANO investment portfolio. The functions of a state development institution are implemented by careful combination of these two approaches.

RUSNANO Group Structure

Joint-Stock Company RUSNANO was established in March 2011 through the reorganization of Russian Nanotechnologies Corporation. JSC RUSNANO supports the implementation of state policy for development of the nanotechnology industry by investing in financially efficient high-tech projects directly and through nanotechnology funds, thereby facilitating the development of new industries in Russia. The key areas for investment are: electronics, optoelectronics and telecommunications, healthcare and biotechnology, metallurgy and metal goods, power engineering, machine-building and device manufacturing, construction and industrial materials, chemicals and petrochemicals. All of the RUSNANO’s shares are owned by state.

RUSNANO’s asset management functions are exercised by RUSNANO Management Company LLC, created in December 2013.

The Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs was created under Federal Law No. 211 “On the reorganization of Russian Nanotechnologies Corporation” (dated 27 July, 2010). The task of the Fund is to create innovative infrastructure for the nanotechnology industry, including the development of educational and infrastructure programs, which were initiated by RUSNANO. The Fund’s Executive Board is chaired by Sergey Kulikov.
