The partners discovered that Smart City technologies have been patented intensively in the last 3 years. 

  • Today, there are about 33,000 technological solutions in this area in the world, and 4 out of every 5 of them are from China. 
  • 115 Smart City patent families are in use in Russia, with 4 out of 5 solutions being foreign technologies. 
  • 30 countries have market potential for such kind of solutions, and only 20 of them have their own inventions, which presents an opportunity for Russian developers, especially in the rapidly growing market of India.
