1. The first meeting of the BRICS Committee on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) was held at the Russian Ministry of Education and Science. Representatives of the relevant ministries of the BRICS countries, as well as science counsellors from the embassies of Brazil, India, China and South Africa in Moscow attended the meeting. One of the important topics was the discussion of the structure of the created web platform, which allows to simplify the process of interaction between working groups and other forms of cooperation to form a single database and also to increase public awareness of cooperation in the field of STI BRICS.



2. A team of young scientists from the laboratory of medical alloys and implants with shape memory SIPT TSU have obtained a patent for a method for creating a porous alloy based on titanium nickelide. The new project aims to create the appropriate material on the structural and functional properties of living bone tissues of the body for the manufacture of implantable porous devices. Such devices can be used in surgery, dentistry, orthopedics and many other areas of medicine.



3. The resolution, which allows launching light drones without permission to take off, was signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. It entered into force on February 4, 2020. It applies only to drones flying in the afternoon at an altitude of up to 150 m, with a mass from 250 g to 30 kg, and the device should be in the direct line of sight of the operator. Flights in restricted areas remain banned as before.

R-Vision is actively developing and attracting new professionals. In 2019, the number of employees increased almost twice.



5. The staff of the SINP MSU as part of an international team of scientists proposed and implemented a method for generating attosecond pulses by a free electron laser and their diagnostics. The results of the work give access to programmable attosecond signals of high intensity for the first time as well as the new ways to study ultrafast nonlinear electronic processes and control them.
