On January 19, an event was held at the All-Russian Research Institute for Civil Defense and Emergency Situations of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia under the leadership of Acting EMERCOM of Russia Alexander Chupriyan to sum up the work of the institute in 2021 and set goals for 2022.

So, among the main results of VNII GOChS in 2021 is a high assessment of the work of the Technical Committee for Standardization 071, which rose 7 positions up in the Rosstandart rating and took 8th place among more than 230 technical committees (in 2020 – 15th place). During the year, 50 civil defense and emergency protection standards were developed, 13 of which have already been approved.

Also in 2021, the system for managing rights and results of intellectual activity worked effectively. International cooperation developed qualitatively – the Institute implemented 6 projects.

Within the framework of cooperation with the UN European Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, coordination and monitoring of the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction for 2015-2030, scientific and methodological support for the registration of cities in the Russian Federation in the Global Initiative “Making Cities Resilient 2030” were carried out. VNII GOChS participated in the work of the group preparing for the European Forum on Disaster Risk Reduction.

In 2021, specialists from the VNII GOChS fulfilled the state task by 100% – 28 research papers were completed, about 150 articles were published in journals included in international citation systems, such as Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar, 176 articles – in domestic popular scientific journals. During the year the institute took part in 17 exhibition events and 6 conferences.

“In the year of science and technology, VNII GOChS did a good job and the institute fulfilled the tasks assigned to it. Your potential has been unleashed through a range of large-scale events. You have written hundreds of scientific papers, you have taken part in the analysis of emergency situations, exercises in the Arctic, the Integrated Safety Salon and other events. I hope that this year you will not rest on your laurels, continue your path to development, become leaders in your field and each of your work will make a practical contribution to the development of the department,” said Alexander Chupriyan, Acting Head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia.

In 2022, one of the main tasks of the scientific team will be to improve the performance of the VNII GOChS, its integration into the global scientific space.

One of the priority areas is the implementation of programs within the framework of the national project “Science”, which is aimed at the breakthrough development of scientific research, ensuring the attractiveness of scientific activity, including for young scientists.

In addition, it is planned to expand cooperation with leading industrial enterprises, integrate into consortiums implementing integrated technological production, which will certainly increase the demand for the Institute’s developments.

“The main task in the past year, in accordance with the development program of the institute, was to create conditions for the transition from the second category of performance to the first, that is, to achieve the indicators inherent in leaders. In Russia, all scientific organizations are assigned to one of three efficiency categories. Therefore, the strategic task of the institute for 2022 is to achieve the planned indicators that ensure the transition of the institute to the category of “scientific organizations – leaders”, – added the head of the institute Maxim Bedilo.
