International Cooperation in Science and Technology: Breakthrough Projects with Asia-Pacific Countries
Yesterday, Transmashholding, Rosatom and Sakhalin Region signed an agreement on developing nuclear energy on Sakhalin. Hydrogen energy is very interesting. You are probably aware that Japan <…> has been dreaming about using hydrogen engines in transport among other areas. <…> The head of Sakhalin Region has contacted Rosatom himself, because he understands the importance of these processes. Rosatom is not only about nuclear energy – it also deals with alternative energy as well. Development of hydrogen energy on Sakhalin stirs interest in Japan. Here is a question to discuss, if it happens here, how could we transport hydrogen to Japan?

International Cooperation in Science and Technology: Breakthrough Projects with Asia-Pacific Countries
This is just regulations that apply to the institutions and departments that work with classified information [Executive Order of the Ministry of Education and Science of 11 February 2019, – Ed.]. <...> But if you look at the wording, it would seem that it applies to all the institutions, which outraged the scientific community

International Cooperation in Science and Technology: Breakthrough Projects with Asia-Pacific Countries
Over the past 25–30 years, we have missed a lot in terms of creating a new scientific and technical groundwork in many areas. And now the partners we have on the Pacific coast (China, Japan, Korea, Singapore), they have long been heading towards scientific and technological progress. They are rushing forward. <...> It is very important for us to backdoor our way into this

Human Capital for a New Eurasia
What to do with qualified staff who reach the age of retirement? <…> In Europe, when retiring, people receive 60–65% of their last salary. In Russia, this figure is much lower. That is why such future does not look attractive <…> life expectancy is growing. <...> It is great that we now live longer, but what are we supposed to do with ourselves in the second part of our lives?

Unfortunately, there are no specific answers to the following questions: why do mutations happen? How many mutations do have in our bodies? What conditions helps mutations and what prevents them? How does this work and what is the role of our own immunity? We still do not fully understand it, or at least we do not to a great extent

Science and Life: The Boundaries of the Possible
It is a fact that we live in the information society. In the information society you can do it only if you are capable of the right and skillful communication.  In this sense our objective to present our science and scientists in the right way is very important. There are multiple flaws in this area. And I assign most of those flaws to scientists. We are used to the situation when we do not have to advertise ourselves

Strategy for Integration of Science, Education, and Business
The most important issue, as we know from the regrettable statistics, is that when we look at the amount of funds allocated for science, it is estimated that business provides only 25 to 30 percent, with the rest coming from the state. This means that we do not have the integration that exists in rapidly developing, high-tech economies where the ratio of funds provided the state and business is almost the opposite

Strategy for Integration of Science, Education, and Business
When not just one, or a couple of dozen, but a large number of companies start to pay close attention to scientific research, then we will create additional added value. And then the profits that companies obtain by applying this new knowledge will be ploughed back into gaining yet more knowledge. This positive feedback loop between business and science, and not just applied science, but also fundamental and exploratory, is the basis for the growth of modern economies and sustainable development

Digital Subsoil Use
The ability to work with large data volumes on much faster computers raises questions previously unheard of, because it was easier to study and explore a deposit with a pickaxe and a shovel than use slow computers to calculate what it has inside. Now the situation is completely different. <…> The global trend is the interface for getting the most comprehensive diagnostics, as well as creating to most up-to-date productive models and using them

Digital Subsoil Use
The digital helps us get rid of our daily rigors. In a certain sense, even to get rid of those mundane professions that we can assign to just a programme instead of an intellect that may be even boring. It is obvious that we get pushed towards the area of creative jobs that cannot be affected by digitalization. But this line will be moving further and further, which results in discussions on whether it is dangerous

Digital Subsoil Use
We know the problem of excavated material. There is an enormous amount of it. Maybe we should really limit ourselves in finding new deposits and study the excavated material instead, because it can contain many things that are attractive for today’s market. <…> This is a relevant task, where digital methods are also very important

Co-Creating the Future. Business Solutions for Realizing Sustainable Development Goals
I would like to point out three important aspects where the science and business together could invest into sustainable development. First: sustainable development is only possible if there is positive feedback between science and market. Second: we need to learn to recognize the challenges different countries face and react to them together. The role of science here is huge. These challenges have to be recognized scientifically. Third: education. If we talk about Society 5.0. a creative society, then we need to think how we are going to train the people for it

There are tasks and risks for the economy that have to do with the warming and define the process both on the Arctic shelf and on the continent. <…> Because of the permafrost change, the soil is changing, and the buildings and constructions based on permafrost are impacted. This change is also a risk, for economy as well

Opportunities and Risks for the Ocean Economy: Ensuring Sustainable Use of the World Ocean’s Natural Riches
Methane release as a consequence and an accelerator of the greenhouse effect rather than of industrial operations is becoming a more important factor. This issue is very serious – how methane emissions influence weather and climate in general. Have we neglected a process that is defined by nature with no regard to our industry, that can lead to serious or even catastrophic consequences?

Science and Society: A Strategy for Future Generations
What is the situation today? Multiplied volumes of information, and it is not just several times more – it is by several orders of magnitude. More and more scientific information is distributed through media outlets. That is the information-oriented society we are dealing with today, while the filters that could separate facts from fakes are not really tuned. One the most important objectives for science is to tune those filters, and science shares this objective with the media

Science is Doing What Politics Cannot Do
The current political issues we are witnessing, alongside geopolitical confrontations and sanctions, are limiting opportunities for collaboration in science and technology. There are plenty of examples of this. As scientists, it is something we encounter. Take scientific cooperation with the US. Our access to their national laboratories is blocked – we’re simply not allowed in

The Technological Breakthrough and Spatial Development of the Country
We see the need in a radical advance both in the address to the Federal Assembly and in May executive orders (of the President – ed.). Economic growth should approach 5–7% rather than 1–2%, which is possible only through rapid introduction of science and technology into our economy. These 5–7% should be achieved alongside other countries fast growth and development due to science and technology. This is the first point. Secondly, we have to admit that we are not making much progress in science and technology. The situation has not been improving, which calls for a radical technological breakthrough
