Construct the future from new materials
The All-Russian scientific-technological conference «The role of fundamental researches in realization of strategic directions of the development of materials and technologies of their processing for the period until 2030» was held at the All-Russian scientific-research institute of aviation materials (VIAM) on 30 of June 2014. The conference was supported by the Russian foundation of fundamental researches (RFFR). The results of fundamental researches, problems and prospects of the development of new materials and fundamental bases of engineering sciences were discussed during the conference.
Academician Evgeny N. Kablov, General Director of VIAM, opened the plenary meeting of the conference. He welcomed of the attendees, thanked the guests for their interest to the conference and congratulated VIAM personnel on the 82nd anniversary of the institute creation. Evgeny Kablov reported that «RFFR actively supports all works in the field of fundamental researches». According to him, under support of the Foundation, some conferences have been already held in VIAM where personnel of the institute and representatives of other organizations told about the results of their work. On Evgeny Kablov opinion, today`s meeting is held within a quite difficult period for the national science. «Our resulting offers on optimization and improvement of scientific research activities will depend on our reports and suggestions», he mentioned. «Your opinion as the specialists in the field of scientific researches results of which are used for the development of Russian economics is critically important», - emphasized the head of VIAM.
Academician of RAS Vladislav Y. Panchenko, Chairman of the Council of RFFR, welcomed the attendees. On behalf of the Council of RFFR he congratulated VIAM personnel on anniversary of the institute creation and mentioned a huge contribution of the institute in development of the domestic science. During his report, he also mentioned about very important direction of the modern science – additive technologies.
«This is new thinking in formation of materials and their processing and in making products from these materials» - emphasized Vladislav Panchenko and offered to take this matter into consideration in the final decision of the conference. His suggestion was supported by the attendees.
Academician of RAS Yuri M. Mikhailov, Chairman of the science-technological council of the Military-industrial commission under the Government of the Russian Federation – deputy chairman of the Military-industrial commission under the Government of the Russian Federation, welcomed participants and guests of the conference.
As Yuri Mikhailov mentioned «today materials science became a determining and dominating factor at creation of different technologies». According to him, many breakthrough developments are determined exactly by materials effectiveness.
Yuri Mikhailov emphasized that «development of materials science is unable without fundamental researches. In this regard it is very important that today many representatives of Russian academy of sciences met in this room». According to him, the role of fundamental science is to solve the critical state goals as quickly as possible taking into account available deep knowledge and possibilities.
Evgeny N. Kablov made the report «Fundamental researches as a keystone for creation of new generation materials Yuri. He told about proposed by VIAM Strategic Directions of the development of materials and technologies of their processing for the period until 2030, which were approved by the Military-industrial commission under the Government of the Russian Federation. «We implemented this work in a close cooperation with the leading scientists of RAS, representatives of higher educational organizations and big corporations», emphasized Evgeny Kablov. According to him, in this document domestic and international experience was analyzed, usage of new materials in all sectors of the domestic industry was summarized and estimated.
The head of VIAM mentioned that the Russian Academy of Sciences plays a key role in organization of scientific researches. «We should understand that without RAS the science in Russia will not have that base which allows to realize various ideas», said Evgeny Kablov. Besides, according to him, it is necessary to keep an effective cooperation of RAS institutes and science centers. Evgeny Kablov mentioned again fundamental and fundamental-oriented researches conducted by VIAM in cooperation with institutes of RAS, universities and R&D branch institutes and also science and technological cooperation to create technology advance. «VIAM cooperates with more than 30 institutes of RAS, 350 industrial enterprises and corporations, agreements with 11 regions of our country were signed», he told.
