Opportunities for participation of foreign researches and research organisations in programmes and projects of the Russian Federation

The development of mutually beneficial cooperation between Russian and foreign organizations working in the field of research and development should be based on a constant exchange of information on the development of high-tech devices, equipment, technology, materials, new knowledge interchange issues, which should result in the entry of Russian companies into international research consortiums. Provision of updated information is intended to assist in the "mobilization" of contacts between Russian and foreign partners.

This bulletin provides information about opportunities for participation in international organizations, programs and projects supported at the Russian national level.
