The State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom proposed to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko to consolidate federal funding for the development of smart cities within the framework of a single program. According to the newspaper, the proposal was voiced by the general director of Rusatom Infrastructure Solutions (RIR, part of Rosatom) Ksenia Sukhotina during a closed meeting on August 29 in Sarov.
The RIR company does not claim to be the only supplier for such a project, the newspaper notes, while it is ready to introduce a digital platform based on the Internet of Things in cities.
Other large structures are also involved in the digitalization of cities and the development of IoT in them. Earlier it was announced that Rostelecom plans to become the operator of the new Digital City project (its implementation was estimated at $1,3 billion). Rostelecom is also a partner of the Ministry of Construction in the Digital Region project (estimated at $1,8 billion).
