Dmitry Chernyshenko announced that 205 scientific and educational organizations in 2022 will receive grants to update the instrument base

The selection results were summed up by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia. Funding is carried out within the framework of the federal project “Development of infrastructure for research and training” of the national project “Science and Universities”.

“We are increasing annual funding and expanding the number of universities and research institutes that receive government support. This year, 205 leading organizations will receive funds for updating the instrument base. We will allocate 11.8 billion rubles from the federal budget for these purposes. This is almost 4 billion more than last year. Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a meeting with researchers at the Congress of Young Scientists, noted the importance of import substitution and increasing the country’s sovereignty in the scientific field. And one of the conditions for granting a grant is that at least 15% of all purchased equipment should be made in Russia. In total, over the past three years, the Government has allocated more than 25 billion rubles to update the instrument base. New modern equipment has already appeared in 268 scientific and educational organizations, ”noted Dmitry Chernyshenko.

A total of 209 applications were submitted for grants in 2022. Each organization had to provide a number of mandatory documents, including a program for updating the instrument base, as well as a rationale for each scientific and laboratory instrument or equipment. The size of the grant in each case was determined based on a number of parameters: the volume of the instrumental base, the scientific direction of the organization’s activities, its scientific performance, technical equipment, capital productivity and the number of researchers.

The number of recipients of grants this year included the Physics Institute. Lebedev RAS, Moscow State University Lomonosov, NRC “Kurchatov Institute”, Physico-Technical Institute named after Ioffe RAS, Institute of Applied Physics RAS and others.

Physical Institute named after Lebedev RAS will receive a grant of 339.5 million rubles. As noted at the institute, it will be aimed at the development of the multifunctional experimental complex of the Tien Shan high-mountain station of the Lebedev Physical Institute. Thanks to state support, the total number of detectors in the system will reach 200, which will improve the accuracy of the research.

“In the new Department of Advanced Photonics and Sensorics of the Troitsk Separate Subdivision of FIAN, it is planned to create a unique installation for ultrasensitive nonlinear microscopy and spectroscopy of various surfaces. A completely cryogen-free superconducting magnetic system with a maximum magnetic field of 12 T of high uniformity and a temperature range of 1.6-300 K. FIAN them. PN Lebedeva is the only NMR laboratory in Russia for the condensed state of high magnetic fields, ”said Kamil Karimullin, scientific secretary of the Troitsk separate division of FIAN, candidate of physical and mathematical sciences.

The Tomsk National Research Medical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Tomsk NIMTs) in 2022 will allocate 203.7 million rubles to update the instrument base.

“These funds will allow us to purchase 20 devices for our scientific laboratories and clinics. Among them, for example, an X-ray computed tomograph, which will allow medical researchers to identify new pulmonary-cardiac and cerebral phenotypes of postcoid syndrome, to assess the role of low-intensity inflammation in the pathogenesis of coronary insufficiency and autonomic autonomic dysfunction, as well as a unique for Russia ultrasound system for small laboratory animals for preclinical research of new therapeutic molecules, a server for bioinformatic analysis of genetic data, cryostorage, a platform for automatic electrophoresis, and others. Updating the instrumental base is a necessary condition for maintaining a high level of our research, introducing advanced developments of scientists into clinical practice. For the third year now, we have become participants in the program for updating the instrument base, thanks to which we are replenishing the stock of equipment for fundamental science, ”said Vadim Stepanov, Director of the Tomsk NIMC, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
