Runet industry organizations have created the Internet Development Institute (IRI) - a single platform for dialogue with the state. Its founders will be the Russian Association for Electronic Communications (RAEC), which unites most of the largest market participants with the exception of Yandex, and the state Fund for the Development of Internet Initiatives (IIDF), which specializes in investing in startups.
IRI will represent the interests of the entire industry, including the Internet, software and media, and should become a platform for discussing legislative initiatives, conveying them to relevant departments and broadcasting the views of state authorities. In addition, Iran will collect and process statistics and other analytical information. Research can be carried out both in the interests of the entire industry, and by order of individual companies on a paid basis.
