The Institute for
Applied Science is engaged in various scientific commercialization projects which further International Scientific Cooperation.
Russia, the ISTC, the European Union, NATO and the US have identified a number of priority research topics for International Scientific Cooperation. For example:
- Improved detection of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear materials.
- Improved decontamination possibilities are also needed, as well as improved methods of safe destruction for these types of materials.
- Progress in medical responses to counteract such materials is also a priority, for example chemical and vaccine technologies.
- Measures to protect against eco-terrorism and computer terrorism are two more areas earmarked for concentrated study.
