Innovations coming from nuclear industry The nuclear technology cluster of the Skolkovo Foundation develops technology companies based on developments originating from the best research and engineering centers. The project portfolio of the Cluster offers new solutions for creation and modification of materials, instrumentation and electronics, nuclear medicine, design and engineering of complex technological systems.
Military applications of nanotechnology: materials, power supply, engines and vehicles In the excerpts from the book by Jurgen Altmann, "Military nanotechnology. Potential applications and preventive arms control" such issues are discussed as the use of nanotechnology in the development of new materials, power supply and accumulators, jet engines, transport vehicles, rocket fuel and explosives.
Open Innovations 2015: a showcase of Russian high technologies Moscow hosted the forum "Open Innovations 2015", organized under the auspices of the Russian Government, with the support of the Ministry of economic development and Ministry of education and science of the Russian Federation with the participation of the government of Moscow and of the largest development institutions: Rusnano, RVC, Skolkovo Foundation, Vnesheconombank, the Fund of assistance to development of small forms of enterprises in scientific and technical sphere. The main theme of the forum is "Man at the crossroads of the trends of technological revolution", that focused discussion on five aspects: productivity, habitat, education, health and the entertainment industry.
Patent purity of high-tech complexes Currently, the requirements to patent purity in new inventions are becoming increasingly stricter worldwide. However, even some public monitors in our country are not quite clear about what is patent purity. The article discusses this issue more in depth.
High-tech solutions for clean environments Modern processes in the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, chemical, photovoltaic, automotive, instrumentation and other industries require high-purity industrial gases and liquids. Oxygen, nitrogen, argon and other gases are also required by laboratories and institutes for research, also at the nanoscale level. To supply gases and liquid chemicals to the process machines, special technical systems, which should meet the purity requirements in accordance with the class of premises and security, are developed. The German company INTEGA, a member of Air Liquide Group, world leader in gases, technologies and services for industry and health, is Europe’s leading developer and supplier of such systems.
Improved diagnostic strategies for the detection of TB disease and drug resistance at the point-of-care by multiple technologies In the international consortium for developing complex diagnostic test-systems for rapid detection of tuberculosis mycobacteria and their antibiotic-resistant forms, Russia is represented by the Advanced Technologies Center, Lomonosov Moscow State University and Central Research Institute of Tuberculosis. It is planned to develop several test systems for integrated diagnosis using molecular-genetic and immunologic methods of mycobacteria biochip-based multi-analysis.
