“The RuSciTech Association has become a bridge between our company and the scientists who are interested in collaboration in our area of science, around the world. Through RuSciTech we have received interesting proposals on scientific cooperation from the United States and Belarus. Before that we were struggling to find like-minded people who, on the one hand, understand our sector, and on the other hand, who are our compatriots living abroad, prepared to help to enter foreign markets. Thanks to RuSciTech for connecting like-minded people and for making the international work easier and more accessible!”

The Biopharmos Group, Saint Petersburg.

“It is very encouraging to see that the association is so actively developing and becoming a real communication portal for Russian-speaking academic/research community abroad”
