Every newsletter will give you more information about Skolkovo: Technopark and Foundation. We would like to introduce you Nuclear Technologies Cluster of Skolkovo Foundation in the first newsletter of this year.
As you know, the innovative development of nuclear technologies is an essential condition for consolidating (and in some areas, achieving) a position of global technological leadership and maintaining Russia's defense capability. The most important result of the development of the nuclear industry has become radiation control and magnetic fields (radiation technology). Based on this group of technologies, a wide range of equipment has been designed and manufactured, including accelerators, neutron generators, lasers, high-frequency systems, detectors of particles and radiation, microscopes and telescopes, and microwave microelectronics.
Main goal of the NT Cluster team is developing the use of technologies, initially emerged from nuclear science, and used primarily in the creation and modification of new materials, instrumentation and electronics, nuclear medicine, in agriculture, design and engineering of multi-component technological systems. In the nuclear industry the cluster focuses on radioactive wastes recycling technologies.
Among the potential partners of Cluster there are global international industrial companies interested in R&D cooperation with Russia. High-tech engineering companies, attracted to increase the efficiency of participants’ acceleration and new international partners’ engagement, are also of great interest to the "Skolkovo" ecosystem.
