The Institute of Internet Development (IID) has been launched in Russia. This was reported by the organizers during the press conference, according to the correspondent of “Lenta.Ru”. The Institute is aimed at consolidation and research of such industries as Internet technology, creation of media content and software.

The founders were RAEC (Russian Association of Electronic Communications) represented by its director Sergei Plugotarenko, FDII (Foundation for Development of Internet Initiatives) represented by Kirill Varlamov, MCU (Media and Communications Union) represented by its President Sergei Petrov, Liveinternet represented by the Service Director German Klimenko and the Chairman of the Board of ROCIT (Regional NGO “Centre of Internet Technologies”) Leonid Levin from this organization. The platform is designed for combination of the major business players (RAEC), startups (FDII), private businesses (Liveinternet) and ordinary users (ROCIT).

As the Chairman of the Board of ROCIT and the Chairman of State Duma Committee on Information Policy, Information Technologies and Communications Leonid Levin noted, the tasks of IID will include: interaction of the industry with the state, digital sovereignty (including issues of import substitution) and educational activities. Levin stressed the fact that the Institute should become the main platform for the Internet industry. IID is a non-profit organization.

According to its Director Sergei Alimbekov, the organization does not have a goal to make a profit. At the same time, the sources of income may later be sales of researches conducted by the participants of IID on their own. Thus, the resources of each association being a member of IID will be used as a startup capital. According to the organizers, first customers are expected already within two months after the launch of the institute. IID will have a Supervisory Board including the representatives of major Internet companies and other organizations: Rambler, Group, “VKontakte”, “Yandex”, “Kaspersky Lab”, “Softkey”, POF (Public Opinion Foundation) – a total of about 20 companies.

As “Lenta.Ru” previously reported, the first meeting of the Supervisory Board of the organization was held on March 10. In addition to the Board, the structure of the Institute includes the Management Board, the Club of Directors (which will include the representatives of companies’ top managers) and Expert Community (for example, a group of cyber security).
