Research Organizations in Ekaterinburg

More than half of the Ural Branch of RAS’s substantial research potential is accumulated in the city of Ekaterinburg. Scientific endeavours here are undertaken by the research staff of over 2000 members, including 14 RAS academicians, 32 RAS corresponding members, 425 doctors of sciences, and over 1000 candidates of sciences. Ekaterinburg’s divisions currently comprise 18 institutes:

Ekaterinburg also houses the Presidium of the RAS Ural Branch, the Science and Engineering Centre “Reliability and Safety of Large Systems and Machines”, the Botanic Garden, and the Central Scientific Library.

The Innovation Technology Centre “Academichesky” and the Ural Regional Centre for Technology Transfer were established in Ekaterinburg with the incentive to facilitate the transfer of scientific developments from academia to industry.

The institutions carry out research of world-class excellence in a broad range of subjects across mathematics, mechanics and information technology, developing mathematical modelling and computational techniques to solve demanding problems in mathematical physics, control and optimization with a high-performance computer base. The Ural scientific schools of mathematics and mechanics (Academicians N.N. Krasovsky, Yu.S. Osipov, I.I. Yeryomin, A.M. Iljin, A.B. Kurzhansky, V.I. Berdyshev) are well known in Russia, as well as abroad.

Research in theoretical and applied physics spans a wide range of issues in solid-state physics, electrophysics, thermal physics, engineering science and power engineering. The academic schools of theoretical physics (Academicians Yu.A. Izyumov, M.V. Sadovsky), physical metallurgy (Academician V.M. Schastlivtsev), magnetism study (Academicians V.V. Ustinov and E.S. Gorkunov), and explosive electron emission theory (Academician G.A. Mesyats) have obtained worldwide acceptance.

The academic schools of chemistry are renowned for the quality of their research in an exceptionally broad spectrum ranging from the creation of perspective composition materials, catalysts, energy elements, environmentally friendly processing technologies of raw materials through to the development of new methodologies both for organic and inorganic synthesis as well as biologically active compounds embracing the latest achievements of nanoscience. The academic schools of solid-state chemistry (Academician G.P. Shveikin), physical chemistry of metallurgical processes (Academicians N.A. Vatolin and L.I. Leontiev) and organic synthesis (Academicians O.N. Chupakhin and V.N. Charushin) maintain a powerful presence in the traditional core areas of chemistry.

Research interests in the area of biological study include sustainable biodiversity, ecosystem conservation, effective natural resource management, physiology, and immunology. The Ural academic schools being at the interface of research are those of Ural ecologists (Academician V.N. Bolshakov) and immunologists (Academician V.A. Chereshnev).

The Branch promotes top quality research aimed at the further strategic development of natural and energy deposits in the Urals. The scientific schools of geology and geochemistry (Academician V.A. Koroteev) and mineral physics (Academician S.L. Votyakov) have been internationally recognised.

Research in humanities and social sciences embrace a number of issues concerning historical and cultural study of ancient and medieval societies in the Urals. Profound analysis of historical changes, social relations, government and society links, economic policy of the region and institutional economic theory has become an initial impetus to form academic schools of the history of Russian modernization (Academician V.V. Alekseev) and regional economy (academician A.I. Tatarkin).
