The cooperation between the Technopark and Keysight Technologies opens broad prospects for St. Petersburg’s innovative enterprises and universities, enabling them to use the technological capacities of the Regional Engineering Centre for Radio-Electronic Production (REC REP) combined with Keysight Technologies’ most advanced achievements.

A laboratory and an engineering expertise showcase centre are being launched at the site of REC REP of the St. Petersburg Technopark, where St. Petersburg’s companies and universities will be able to receive recommendations on selecting hardware and software, get familiarised with the methodology of technical equipment and arrange training, which will increase the competitiveness of enterprises, the level of their technological equipment and employee professionalism.

“REC REP, a part of the St. Petersburg Technopark, was established in response to requests from the city’s industrial enterprises. The competencies and equipment available at the new engineering centre will allow us to pursue an innovative approach towards solving the numerous technological challenges faced by small and medium-sized enterprises. The agreements reached with Keysight Technologies during the signing of the Memorandum will promote the spread of advanced radio-electronic instrumentation technologies both in St. Petersburg and in Russia,” said Andrey Sokolov, CEO of Saint Petersburg Technopark JSC.
