Dmitry Chernyshenko at the III Congress of Young Scientists

At the meeting of the Megagrants Council, 10 scientific projects were selected. They will be carried out under the guidance of leading scientists and young promising researchers from around the world.

“This year, on behalf of the head of state, the program has been modernized: the size of grants and the timing of scientific work have been significantly increased. The new conditions will make it possible to attract world-famous researchers to work in Russia and achieve technological leadership – a national goal outlined in the decree of President Vladimir Putin. The megagrant program promotes cooperation between our and foreign scientists, including compatriots living abroad. Thanks to it, 345 laboratories have already been created on the basis of about 150 educational and scientific organizations,” noted Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko.

The Deputy Prime Minister emphasized that a gradual move to Russia is becoming an important condition for leading researchers – recipients of megagrants. During the first year they will need to spend at least three months in the country, in 2025 – at least six months, and in subsequent years work in Russia on a permanent basis.

Minister of Science and Higher Education Valery Falkov noted that the most important task of the competition is to attract leading scientists to Russia who are creating new research teams here.

“For the first time, as part of the improved mega-grant program for the creation of such world-class teams and laboratories, researchers will receive grants in the amount of up to 500 million rubles for a period of up to five years with the possibility of extension up to three years. The Grants Council had a difficult task – to select applications from different fields of science. And of course, one of the main selection criteria was the relevance of the projects to ensure the technological sovereignty of Russia, as well as the practical contribution of the research to solving the problems that our country faces today,” he emphasized.

Work will be carried out at universities and scientific organizations in Orel, Novosibirsk, Veliky Novgorod, Chelyabinsk, St. Petersburg and Moscow in the field of creating new functional materials, machine learning, quantum technologies, neuro- and biotechnologies, genetics, regenerative and personalized medicine, ecology, resource-saving technology and other areas.

The competition of scientific projects led by the world’s leading scientists received 102 applications from 36 countries. Based on the results of the work of the Megagrants Council, 8 winners were recognized. They will be implemented in Russian scientific and educational organizations under the leadership of leading scientists from Belarus, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Sweden and Japan.

Considering the increased interest on the part of leading scientists to conduct research and subsequently move to Russia for permanent residence, the council recommended that the Ministry of Education and Science support in the future an additional 10 projects that meet the objectives of scientific and technological development of Russia.

The competition for young promising researchers received 17 applications from 13 countries. Based on the results of the work of the Megagrants Council, 2 projects of young promising scientists from Singapore and South Korea were recognized as winners; the maximum grant for the winners of this track will be 15 million rubles per year for up to two years (with the possibility of extension for another two years). One of the main conditions for the participation of young scientists in the megagrant competition is to conduct research in existing laboratories of “megagrantees” or on the tasks of “megascience” class facilities. The winners of this direction will work in Chelyabinsk (SUSU) and Moscow (MIPT).

Let us remind you that the megagrant program is part of the national project “Science and Universities”.
