Perm Science Center

The history of the Perm Science Centre traces its roots back to 1971, when the first academic subdivisions of the USSR Academy of Sciences, namely the Department of Physics of Polymers and the Department of Ecology and Selection of Microorganisms, were founded. In 1980 the Department of Physics of Polymers underwent transformation and became the Institute of Continuous Media Mechanics of the USSR Academy of Sciences.

Officially, the Perm Science Centre was established in 1988 and since then has comprised seven academic bodies of the Ural Branch of RAS, each with a powerful legacy of research success and collaborative approach to their areas of expertise:

At present the Centre is headed by Academician Valery P. Matveenko. The Presidium comprises one academician and two RAS corresponding members. The staff of scientific organizations consists of 633 employees, including 67 doctors of sciences and 193 candidates of sciences.

The Centre applies its expertise and knowledge to facing the following challenging research areas:

  • research into the mechanism of deformation and fracture in solids in terms of various mechanical, physical and chemical processes; problems of hydrodynamic stability, turbulence, magnetic hydrodynamics, physical and chemical hydrodynamics of polymers, suspensions, and magnetic fluids; development of materials with a complex of predetermined structure and properties based on organic polymers and inorganic compounds, as well as development of synthetic procedures for the production of organic compounds ;
  • research into the mechanisms of geosystem development and optimal control of their parameters under the natural and anthropogenic effects;
  • comprehensive research in the area of microbiology and immunology of micro- and macro-organisms;
  • investigation of the issues of business management under the competitive environment uncertainty and risks; the problems of social capital formation in the economy of region;
  • study of the ethnogenesis, ethnical and cultural history, and traditional culture in the Western Urals;
  • research into political institutions and processes of modern Russia on the regional level.
