English term or phrase:Oekreal fund
This fund awards a prize for innovation. I am translating its name into Russian. Can anybody explain how this name can sound? And is it really a name of a town?
If it helps any, the OE is a variant of Ö; the sound does not exist in English. The prefix "OEK-" probably represents Greek OIKOC (=house) which provides the prefix "eco-" in "economics" and in "ecology", though the OEKREAL foundation is more interested..
