For the development of science, it is planned to build at least 25 university research campuses, support research teams with grants and provide opportunities for testing breakthrough developments in real conditions.

The next decade in Russia is planned to be devoted to the development of science and its popularization among young people. This was stated by the President of Russia at a joint meeting of the State Council and the Council for Science and Education. Vladimir Putin… The meeting was attended by Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.

“I think it will be right if the Year of Science and Technology marks the beginning of a whole scientific decade in Russia, which will serve as a stimulus for the further development of education. I am sure that this decision will be supported by all political and social forces. Of course, I look forward to the interested participation of our regions in this work, ”said Vladimir Putin.

According to him, first of all, it is necessary to involve young people in scientific activities. In particular, to assist in the development of popular scientific tourist routes and the creation of centers for scientific volunteering, including on the basis of universities.

“We are talking about the participation of students, schoolchildren in expeditions, about conducting excursions to Megascience class installations, to research centers, to the Vostochny cosmodrome, and so on and so forth. All these are opportunities for the young generation to get acquainted with the work of a scientist, with Russian science, and in the future – to continue its great history, “said the President of Russia.

The Year of Science and Technology helped to attract the attention of Russians to advanced technologies and developments. Lectures by scientists and hours-long marathons of the revived Knowledge Society were watched by tens of millions of citizens. Russian schoolchildren this year also won all international Olympiads in natural sciences – physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, computer science.

Recently, the number of universities that conduct scientific activities has almost tripled, the country’s scientific geography has expanded, a research infrastructure has been formed, and advanced developments have begun to improve the daily life of Russians.

In the next 10 years, at least 25 university campuses with advanced conditions for study and research will appear in the country. For example, at the Moscow State University (MSU) named after M.V. Lomonosov, a scientific and technological valley is being created, which can become one of the most successful in the world educational space.

“There is a construction of three clusters -“ Lomonosov ”, interdisciplinary and educational. The Moscow government and personally Sergei Semenovich Sobyanin pay great attention to the creation of an actually real scientific town, – said the rector of Moscow State University Viktor Sadovnichy. – Applications were received from 190 large and medium-sized companies from the regions of Russia. And on their basis, about 300 youth start-ups have been formed in the valley. “

The mega-grant program will continue, thanks to which strong research teams will be formed in Russia, attracting, among other things, compatriots from abroad.

Regions that enhance their scientific and technological potential will be supported. Breakthrough developments, the launch of new research, innovative and educational projects will be evaluated.

Scientific innovation teams will be able to quickly test technologies in real life, and then implement them in enterprises, institutions and cities.

In addition, Vladimir Putin instructed the Russian Government to quickly work out solutions on housing certificates for teachers. They are planned to be handed over to specialists who have achieved concrete results in their professional activities, regardless of their length of service. And scientists working in the difficult conditions of the Far North will be paid the so-called northern allowances from the first month.
