1. Scientists from the Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry. N.S. Kurnakov, together with colleagues from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and St. Petersburg State University. The nanopowder synthesized by the researchers is characterized by high conductivity in the medium-temperature range.



2. The Scientific Council ‘Fundamental Problems of Nanostructures and Nanotechnologies’ was established at the Department of Nanotechnologies and Information Technologies of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Academician Vladislav Panchenko was appointed chairman of the council.



3. Under the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, a Board of Directors began work, which included the heads of scientific organizations subordinate to the Ministry. The new consultative and advisory body, which will ensure the transparency of the department's communication with the scientific community, is headed by Minister Valery Falkov. One of the main tasks of the council will be to develop proposals for improving the mechanisms of the remuneration system for research workers.



4. Russian scientists have grown new single crystals based on lithium tungstate with molybdenum, which can be used to study the elastic coherent scattering of neutrinos on nuclei. It provides information on the formation of the Universe and the evolution of stars, as well as on the structure of the nucleus, and can be used to monitor nuclear reactors. Crystals have the properties necessary for research - stability, high quality and do not contain impurities.



5. Scientists of the Tomsk Polytechnic University received two grants from the Russian Science Foundation of 6 million rubles annually until 2024 for the creation of artificial vessels that accurately imitate the structure of natural ones, and for the development of chlorine, bromine and iodine compounds to create environmentally friendly catalysts and radiopharmaceuticals.
