Posted on March 15, 2006
On February 28 - March 1 there was an official visit by Russian President Putin to the Hungarian republic accompanied by Chief of Federal Agency for Science and Innovations Sergey Mazurenko. Among many actual investment projects discussed in Hungary, one of the main important issues was collaboration in nanotechnology sphere. As a result of negotiations the Program of Joint Cooperation in Nanotechnology Development was signed.
According to this Program the Hungarian Center of Nanotechnology will be founded for realization of combined Russian-Hungary science and technological researches including technologies and now-how exchange as well as joint cooperation results utilization.
The Program was worked out by Russian Federal Agency for Science and Innovations, and it was specially mentioned by it’s Mr. Mazurenko that “The world is on the threshold of new industrial revolution which relates for the first round with nanotechnology development. By estimation of leading experts this revolution could be comparable only with transistor and antibiotic invention or with information technologies taken together by its influence on community. In the nearest future we will evaluate countries’ economical, social and political level of development by their national nanoindustry evolution.”
The Head of Russian Federal Agency for Science and Innovations specially emphasized the NT-MDT company’s contribution to Russian nanotechnology development: “ Russian scientific centers and companies actively participate in nanotechnologies elaboration and usage. On a base of main innovation project of national importance Russian company NT-MDT developed a full line-up of scanning probe microscopes. Now company has distributors in more then 40 foreign countries.”
Evaluating the Program signing there was a conclusion made that “Today in Russia we have very favorable conditions for bankroll attraction into nanotechnology and nanomaterials area, what may give us a boost for world’s high technology market gain. The foundation of nanotechnology Center in Hungary is an evident demonstration of our achievements’ acknowledgement in Europe.”
