The Office of the Mayor of Moscow and the Department of Information Technologies of Moscow offered the students of the British Higher School of Design the opportunity to participate in a project to develop a new portal: future.mos.ru, which, in the future, will unite urban services, making them simpler and more accessible to residents. During the year the students will work on a brief, the purpose of which is the improvement of interaction between residents and civic services. Among the tasks assigned to students is to work with the service, 'City Advisor', which is implemented in tandem with a new portal — future.mos.ru. This is a universal 'helper' which assists residents to find answers to questions about services, amenities and many other aspects of life in Moscow. In addition, further cooperation with BHSAD will continue in regards to the creation of the English-language service for the portal, which will allow expats and visitors from other countries to feel welcomed and comfortable. They will be able to easily access any required information related to urban services and events, amenities, legal matters and so on.
