The Russian Association for Electronic Communications (RAEC) was established in 2006. The Association's objective is to create a civilized information society, which will have its own legal system and the codes of professional activities that are to be accepted by both the users and the companies operating on the Internet. One of the key goals of the Association is to set up a dialogue between the state and the IT-companies. RAEC is actively involved in the solutions of socially important objectives aimed at the development of the information society in Russia and enhancing the image of Russia as of the responsible member of the global information community.
The Internet of Things Association (IOTAS) is a flagship Russian multi-stakeholder-based IoT-driven non-profit organization.
IOTAS operates as a platform for a region-wide expert dialogue on adoption of IoT/IIoT technology in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), bringing together experts from various industries keen to adopt the digital agenda, such as telecom, manufacturing, agriculture, transportation, energy, and utilities.
IOTAS vigorously works in the area of awareness raising and education by providing expertise to the university community. The Association is also involved in a number of large-scale nationwide projects, such as Russia’s digital economy, smart cities and digital farming.
Since 2018 IOTAS joined the Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC™), the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
