The history of Koltsovo began in 1974 and is inseparably linked with the history of the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology VECTOR. The settlement, initially established as a home to an institute for research of especially dangerous viruses, was named after a famous Soviet biologist, cytologist, and geneticist Nikolai Koltsov.[11] On January 17, 2003, Koltsovo was granted naukograd (science town) status, which it is to retain until the end of 2025. The status is granted to the cities with high concentrations of scientific research and production capabilities. Koltsovo received its status by Russian President order no.45 of January 17, 2003.[12]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Koltsovo is subordinated to Novosibirsky District.[1] As a municipal division, Koltsovo is incorporated separately as Koltsovo Urban Okrug.[2]

Science and business

Since its creation Koltsovo has been developing as a center of biotechnology, molecular biology, and virology. For instance, Koltsovo’s Institute Georgia.

The science-driven business of the Science town has always been nurtured by research conducted by Vector specialists. The first wave of commercialization of Vector developments took place in 1990s and was sustained by the Vector director Lev Sandakchiev. A number of research spin-offs were created at that period, including Vector-Medica, Vector-Best, Vector-Bialgam, ImDi, which are currently among the most prominent innovation enterprises in Koltsovo.

The research conducted in Koltsovo includes such top-notch developments, such as vaccines against breast cancer,[13] hepatitis A and A+B,[14] therapeutic HIV Vaccine and vaccine against pandemic H1N1 influenza;[15] test-systems for early diagnostics of cancer, infectious diseases, TORCH-infections, zoonosis infections, hepatitis C, as well as dangerous deathly viruses such as Ebola, Marburg, Machupo, Lassa, dengue and yellow fever.[16]

Koltsovo also has a number of companies active in functional food production, such as liquid probiotics with 100% content of bifidumbacteria, muesli enriched with probiotics, products based on pure extracts of pine and fir, different types of food supplements.[17]

Not only virology and biotechnology in different aspects attract attention of researchers from Koltsovo.[18] Koltsovo is a home to a large IT company Center of Financial Technologies, software developer for financial, healthcare and public sectors, known for its creation of the Russian payment system Zolotaya Korona.

Koltsovo has an infrastructure for science-driven business, including:

Society and economy

Koltsovo is the least populated naukograd in Russia, but it takes the lead among other naukograds in tax revenue, volume of produced innovation products, residential construction, and birth rate.[25] Koltsovo is located in a picturesque place, surrounded by coniferous and birch trees. The apartment buildings are beautifully alternated by green plantations. The unique location of the Science town, its vicinity to Novosibirsk and the adjacent science center Akademgorodok, create a special ambiance where tranquility is combined with energy from business and social life. Since 2006 in Koltsovo 4 new neighborhoods have been constructed and the 5th is planned to be built in the next 5 years.[26] It provides solid population growth as well as high birth rate in Koltsovo. Koltsovo has a high-level medical complex, including a recently refurbished policlinic with newly opened center for rehabilitation for kids with cerebral palsy,[27] schools, including a boarding school with specialisation in biotechnology,[28] kindergartens, recreation centers, a recently refurbished art school,[29] trading centers, drug stores, market, cafés, and a hotel.

The Youth Parliament,[32] which implements social projects, was organized by students living in Koltsovo.
