Institute for Internet Development (IRI): history, goals, projects
IRI is a relatively newly createdan organization whose main task is the development of modern technologies in Russia - media resources, Internet networks, related software, etc. Let's get to know her more closely, as well as with her main activities.
History of the Institute for Internet Development
The idea of creating such a lobbying organizationwas expressed in 2014 at the RIW Forum. The project was supported by V. Volodin, an official of the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation. Almost the whole of 2015 was devoted to determining the format and directions of the activities of the Institute, its goals, objectives, management system. As a result, Herman Klimenko was appointed chairman of the new structure. The founders of the Islamic Republic of Iran were:
- Center for Internet Technologies;
- Russian Association of Electronic Communications;
- fund for the development of Internet initiatives;
- Media-communication union.
In the same year, a new project wasthe first event is the "Internet + Economy" Forum. Its importance is evidenced by the fact that, according to the results of the forum, certain assignments of VV Putin to the branches of the federal government were formulated. In 2016 eight key forums of the Internet Development Institute were organized, which we will discuss in more detail. Today, the IRI specializes in collecting and processing the statistics of the Internet-dependent Russian and foreign branches of public life that are necessary for itself, analyzing these data.

Herman Klimenko and the Institute for Internet Development
Let's talk about the head of the IRI. German Sergeevich Klymenko by profession is a system programmer and economist. In addition to being chairman of the board of the Institute and adviser to the president of the Russian Federation, German Sergeevich is still director and owner of Liveinternet, Mediametrics. In addition, GS Klimenko is the creator and leader of List.Ru, TopList and LBE.
German Sergeevich actively opposes the fullopenness of the Network - suggests banning popular foreign networks in the Russian Federation, restricting Russians' access to certain sites, and completely isolating the Runet from the World Wide Web.
