Moscow ranks third in the world, behind only New York and San Francisco.

Moscow is recognized as the first among European cities in ranking of innovations helping to build resilience to the coronavirus. She was ahead of London and Barcelona.

The Russian capital ranks third among the world’s megacities, after San Francisco and New York. Boston and London round out the top five. The rating was compiled by the international research agency StartupBlink.

About 50 advanced solutions that are used to combat the spread of coronavirus helped Moscow achieve high performance.

Among them are algorithms for computer vision based on artificial intelligence. This technique has already helped radiologists analyze more than three million studies.

Another innovative solution is a cloud platform that connects patients, doctors, medical organizations, insurance companies, pharmaceutical industries and websites.

We have contributed to the high results and technologies that help to adapt the lives of citizens during a pandemic. These are projects in the field of smart tourism, e-commerce and logistics, as well as telecommuting and online education.

Experts from the StartupBlink agency assessed the measures taken in Moscow in terms of epidemiological indicators and impact on the economy.

Moscow experience

In the fight against coronavirus, Moscow has abandoned extremes. They staked on prevention: we increased the number of free express testing and vaccination points, patented online programs and platforms for training, and developed telemedicine capabilities.

During the pandemic, the Moscow healthcare system has accumulated a sufficiently large margin of safety, which makes it possible not to stop routine and emergency care even during periods of peak incidence of COVID-19.

The capital supports businesses by providing subsidies and incentives. This year, about 25 thousand small and medium-sized businesses took advantage of support measures.

How the rating is compiled

The rating is compiled on the basis of global map of innovative solutions to combat coronavirusand evaluates about 100 leading cities and 40 countries of the world. The Global Map was created in March 2020 and over a thousand solutions were added to it during the year.

The ranking algorithm takes into account the number and type of innovations used in the fight against coronavirus. Projects that were accepted for consideration had to meet three basic criteria, including innovation, relevance (the decision must directly respond to the challenges of COVID-19) and credibility. Additional points are awarded for selected outstanding initiatives. All decisions undergo preliminary moderation and are selected by experts according to the criteria of quality and reliability of information.
