Russian eReader Tech Initiative - eReader Displays

Financial Times: "Rusnano, Russia’s state nanotechnology company, tends to specialise in projects too difficult or expensive for ordinary mortals to understand. But the logic of its latest Russian venture is a no-brainer in a nation renowned for bookworms: it wants to make screens for e-readers. The company approved plans this week to invest $150m in making state of the art plastic electronic displays in a partnership with Plastic Logic, a California-based electronics group. Oak Investment, a US venture capital fund, is expected to support the project, part of Russia’s drive to promote innovative industries to diversify the economy away from oil and gas."
