NRC "Kurchatov Institute" - CRISM "Prometey" is the largest interbranch materials research center in the country, acknowledged leader focusing its efforts on development of fundamentally new, national-level advanced materials and technologies ensuring a solution of the problems of scientific and technical development and keeping of national defence capability.


The Institute started its operation in 1939 with development and mastering the production of tank armor, principally for a famous T-34 tank, modernization of armor hulls of tanks and self-propelled artillery plants. Almost all national naval fleet — undersea and surface fleet, many different-purpose civil ships as well as nuclear power plants, ice-resistant drilling platforms and other structures able to be operated under high loads in aggressive medium are built from materials developed by "Prometey".


Developments of "Prometey" are focused on key industries: shipbuilding, nuclear power engineering, thermal power and hydraulic power engineering, gas production and oil-refining industry, machine building and military technology where parts, structures and equipment operate under extreme conditions.


Institute staff numbers in more than 1400 persons. Known scientists and specialists in metal science, metallurgy, welding, nonmetallic composite materials, nanotechnologies is a core of research team.
