Mega Science is a real need of both the economy and the society — Andrey Fursenko, Aide to the President of the Russian Federation.
Mega Science can be absolutely intabgible during its first years and decades, but later it will become an enormous step forward for the whole humanity — Yuriy Balega, Vice-President, Russian Academy of Sciences .
At this point, development of such physico-chemical or physico-technological fields as catalysis and synergetics, medicine and bioindustry, chemical technologies and materials science is not possible without Mega Science, without experiments, research and results obtained through Mega Science facilities — Valery Buhtiyarov, Director, Federal Research Center "Institute of Catalysis named after G.K. Boreskov of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences".
As of today, basically there are no organisms that would consume gas-phase substrates and produce useful substances. We need to use methods of synthetic biology and metabolic engineering to understand how ferments that turn carbon dioxide into useful substances work. Mega Science facilities can tell us how those ferments work, and most importantly how to improve them to make this process more efficient — Aleksandr Yanenko, Director, State Research Institute of Genetics and Selection of Industrial Microorganisms of the National Research Centre ‘Kurchatov Institute’.
