In the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) wanted more money to update the equipment base of scientific organizations. This was announced by the President of the Academy Alexander Sergeyev, reports TASS.
According to Sergeyev, at the moment the national project “Science” for these purposes there will be approximately 90 billion rubles. However, he believes that these funds will be enough to upgrade 50 percent of the devices that are used in the work of the Russian scientists.
“This is clearly not enough, efforts should be made to seek additional sources of funding. The condition of the instrument base, which have obsolete equipment is not enough equipment,” — said the President of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
He added that in other countries, particularly in the US, the indicators of capital-science is much higher than in Russia. So, American scientists in the field of medicine is better equipped than the Russian almost four times, in physics — 10 times, in agriculture — hundreds of times. “It is clear that with this instrument Park we will not be able to provide our country with new technological basis and be interesting to our real sector,” — said Sergeyev.
National project “Science” is being implemented in Russia at the initiative of President Vladimir Putin. Only its implementation is planned to more than 625 billion rubles. He, in particular, provides creation in the country of 15 scientific and educational centers of the world level, commissioning research facilities class “magicians” and the formation of an integrated system of training scientific and scientific-pedagogical personnel.
