This Centre, which was created within the frameworks of the Science National Project, will unite the potentials of educational and scientific organisations, enterprises and companies of the real economy sector of the Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk and Kurgan regions with regard to conducting applied scientific research and engineering developments of world-class level, creating competitive technologies and products and commercializing those, as well as to training specialists for solving scientific and engineering tasks to achieve breakthrough development in the priority fields, and enhance the competitiveness of the economies of the entities within the Centre’s area.
The Ural Interregional Research and Education Centre comprises the most reputable universities of the Ural Federal District:
- South Ural State University (SUSU);
- Ural Federal University (UrFU);
- Kurgan State University.
Ural Federal University (UrFU) is responsible for the coordination of the Centre’s activity program.
Within the established collaboration, South Ural State University will present a number of scientific projects related to the university’s strategy of development in the following fields: Digitalization; Materials Science; Rocket and Space Equipment; and Ecology.
The Centre’s activity, in the combination with the potential of the available innovative infrastructure of our region, will allow to unite the existing formats of collaboration and means of support for projects of all the technology readiness levels (from exploratory research to pilot production), and to stimulate the development of new formats of the scientific and engineering cooperation.
As part of their activity, the Research and Education Centre participants will be solving scientific problems and generating breakthrough solutions, which aim at facilitating the development of the entities within the Centre’s area and can bring significant economic benefit in over 5 to 10 years.
Currently, an application for creating a Research and Education Centre, which will be functioning within the collaboration of the three regions, is being prepared and executed. SUSU will present a number of scientific projects related to the university’s strategy of development in the following key fields: Digitalization; Materials Science; Rocket and Space Equipment; and Ecology. It should be noted that each project should be supported by an industrial partner.SUSU Rector
