Apple allegedly interested in Russian R&D facility

updated 03:04 pm EDT, Fri May 18, 2012

Would continue global R&D expansion

Apple is one of several parties in talks with Russia's Skolkovo technology park about possible research and development facilities there, according to local publication Izvestia. Other interested companies are said to include Google and Facebook; agreements are reportedly already in place for firms such as Microsoft, IBM, General Electric, and Cisco. Skolkovo's organizers are said to be aiming at making the park a Russian equivalent of Silicon Valley.

Apple officials in Moscow have refused to comment. The company has however shown an interest in R&D expansion, since it's already working on another R&D facility in Israel. That facility will wrap in elements of Anobit, an Israeli firm specializing in memory technology that Apple bought out in December.
