Key moments

The customer for fundamental research is almost always society, usually represented by the state, or sometimes public institutions. On this basis, there’s a chance to develop applied ideas that develop business.
Alexey Repik
I think the huge investments currently being made in telecommunications and infrastructure for the next generations – in space and on earth – are already leading to the next surge in the economy and will possibly result in greater investment in basic science.
Sergei Nedoroslev
We (Russia) invest 0.9% of our budget into R&D, whereas this figure in Japan is 0.7%. The USA is about on our level, and Germany is also at 0.9%. This means that the state invests money in science at the same level as the most developed countries do. The problem is that business does not invest in it.
