Strategy for Information Society Development in Russia
About the Institute

The Institute of the Information Society (IIS) is an independent research and service organization established in September 1998 by a number of professionals working with information technologies, telecommunications and information policy who were brought together by the common goal of developing the Information Society in Russia.

Our Mission

The Information Society for us is not about creating automatons – it is a society of empowered people, who are talented and successfully self-actualizing; information and communication technologies in capable hands are a useful and easily adjustable instrument rather than an ultimate goal or a panacea.

Our mission is to facilitate the adequate choice of development goals and directions. We propose well thought-out rational solutions because we assume responsibility to our partners and clients for the outcomes of those choices.
