The Ural Interregional Scientific and Educational Center “Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and Materials” made significant progress in 2022 in meeting its key performance indicators. The results were summarized by the members of the UIREC Supervisory Board.
In particular, there was an increase in development and handing over for implementation in production of competitive technologies (57 units), a growing number of patents for inventions (236), as well as articles by scientists in the journals included in Scopus and Web of Science (4017). The share of new and improved high-tech products (30.8%) and the share of researchers under 39 years old (55.55%) also improved. There was also an increase in the number of persons trained at the UIREC competence development center (768 people) and the number of new high-tech jobs (1,128).
“The Supervisory Board of the Center reviewed the results of its work in 2022, and we showed very good dynamics for all the key indicators,” said Igor Manzhurov, Director for Development of UIREC. “This means that the work model that we have chosen is correct and is demonstrating its effectiveness. I would like to thank the governors of the Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk, and Kurgan Oblasts, the representatives of universities, research organisations and enterprises that are members of the Center for their support. Our work makes it possible to implement advanced technologies in real production in the shortest possible time and solve the import substitution problem, which is so acute today.”
The structure of the Ural Interregional Research and Educational Center includes nine universities, 10 scientific organizations, and 54 industrial partners. The center’s portfolio consists of 51 technological projects.
