In 2006 in Skolkovo, the Moscow School of Management opened as one of the best training centers for Russia's business elite, and in the future Russia's leading research and innovation center is to be built on the 380-hectare site – embedded in a new city for up to 25,000 residents. Schools, day care centers, and hotels are planned in addition to convenient residential buildings. The heart of the city will be the Skolkovo Institute of Technology, a research center with a focus on information technology, biotechnology, energy efficiency, medical technology, nuclear technology, and aerospace. The Russian government wants to make the equivalent of around three billion euros available for Skolkovo – and make the project the centerpiece of a modernization program that is to secure Russia's technological alignment with the leading industrial nations. In 2010, Siemens became the first large German company to enter into a strategic partnership with the initiators of Skolkovo. Siemens not only wants to develop new technologies in its own research and development center with up to 150 scientists, but also would like to help make the city itself a model of energy efficiency.
