FSUE CRISM "Prometey" NRC "Kurchatov Institute" is a State Scientific
Center of Russian Federation
(status is regularly confirmed since 1994) focusing on
problem-oriented fundamental research and application scientific and
research, research and technology works on creation of competitive
science-intensive products ensuring innovative development of the most
important direction of science, technologies and techniques.
In 2011 by
Order of Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation FSUE
CRISM "Prometey" NRC "Kurchatov Institute" was classified as the 1st category organization –
scientific organizations – leaders.
On the 3d of February 2016 a RF Government regulation regarding FSUE CRISM “Prometey” joining with National Research Centre “Kurchatov institute” was issued.
Main directions of scientific and
technical development of the Institute:
- Development of
high-strength structural welding steels, welding materials, welding
technologies, multipurpose coatings and methods of manufacturing of
large-scale structure elements with high in-service reliability operated in
combined stress state at extremely low temperatures under aggressive medium
- Development of corrosion-resistant welding titanium
and aluminium alloys including of large thickness, welding of large-scale
structure operated under extreme conditions with long service life.
- Creation of high-resistant polymer composites and manufacturing
technologies of products for different machine building branches including
those capable to be operated in aggressive fluid medium (sea water).
- Creation of materials with high resistance to deterioration under
influence of neutron flux and other types of radiation exposure for
manufacturing of equipment for nuclear research and commercial reactors of
different types with service life not less than 80-100 years.
staff numbers in more than 1400 persons. Known scientists and specialists in
metal science, metallurgy, welding, nonmetallic composite materials,
nanotechnologies are founders of 3 schools of sciences.
basic subdepartments in major higher education institutions of city,
In cooperation with leading companies and higher education institutions 2
Research and Educational Centers (REC) were established.
CRISM "Prometey" NRC "Kurchatov Institute" has own all-Russian Scientific and technical
journal "Voprosy Materialovedeniya" (ISSN 1994-6716) covering
actual problems of current material science.
