(Worldview.Stratfor.com) The Russian government has signed a number of agreements with several state-owned enterprises to distribute responsibilities for the development of a wide range of technologies. Under the new contracts, Russian Railways will manage the development of quantum communications, Rosatom will manage the development of quantum computing as well as material sciences, Rostec will develop quantum sensors.
This top-down, state-owned enterprise push is being framed in the context of “technological sovereignty” in Russia, which speaks to Moscow’s desired self-sustainability in providing its own high-tech services.
