More than 200 scientific organizations will receive grants to upgrade their instrumentation base

More than 200 scientific and educational organizations in Russia will receive 11.8 billion rubles in grants this year to upgrade the instrumentation base, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko.

"We are increasing annual funding and expanding the number of universities and research institutes that will receive state support. This year 205 leading organizations will receive funds for renewal of instrumentation base", - he said.

A total of 11.8 billion rubles will be allocated for educational and research organizations. It is almost four billion more compared to 2021, said the deputy chairman.

"One of the conditions for granting the grant is that at least 15% of all purchased equipment should be Russian-made," Chernyshenko specified.

Over the past three years the government has allocated more than 25 billion rubles to update the instrumentation base, reminded the deputy prime minister. The new modern equipment has already appeared in 268 scientific and educational organizations, it follows from the message on the website of the Cabinet.

In total 209 applications were submitted for grants in 2022. Each organization had to provide a list of required documents, including a program to update the instrument base, the justification for each scientific and laboratory device or equipment.

The size of the grant in each case was determined on the basis of a number of parameters: the volume of the instrument base, the scientific direction of the organization, its scientific effectiveness, the technologically advanced equipment, the productivity of funds, and the number of researchers.

The grantees include the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow State University, the Kurchatov Institute, the Ioffe Physical and Technical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and others.
