The Centre was created on the basis of the Physical and Technical Faculty of PetrSU with the aim to introduce the latest achievements in science and engineering into the region’s economy, to pursue research, which is of prior importance to the region and has been internationally acknowledged.
In the field of education, the Centre is to develop progressive educational processes, using integrated research work, to train specialists in the field of electronics, computing and information-measuring machinery, mining business, geology and geophysics
THE CENTRE’S GOALS:
Development of high-tech methods for processing and modification of natural raw materials and products of technogenous activity;
Co-ordination and rendering qualified assistance in implementing research projects and co-operation in the North of Europe;
Improvement of the academic process while training students in the specialties “physics” and “physical electronics”. Creation and use of courses of study accessible to be represented as open educational services (including for overseas learners).
THE CENTRE’S OBJECTIVES:
Introduction of new state-of-the-art technological ways and methods into the region’s economy;
Development of methods for plasma conversion of ores and minerals of Karelia, as well as of timber industry wastes;
Perfection of methods for fabricating films and coverings to be used in electronics, sensor engineering and machine-building;
Establishing close contacts with higher schools and research institutions from Nordic countries, inviting lecturers from these countries to deliver courses at the Physical Faculty of PetrSU;
Further activities aimed to create automated apparatus to handle technological processes of various productions, as well as information-measuring apparatus to carry out environmental monitoring and analytical studies;
Creation of courses accessible to be represented as open educational services (including overseas learners) on “Networks and open systems” and “On-line systems”.
THE CENTRE’S PARTNERS:
The Centre is developing extensive scientific relations with higher schools and research institutions from Russia, as well as with foreign partners, from Nordic countries, in the first place.
The following Russian and foreign partners are involved in the Centre’s work:
- European Centre on Quality at Moscow State Institute of Economics and Mathematics – Moscow, Russia;
- University of Bergen – Norway;
- Institute of Ensuring Quality – Great Britain;
- SEMKO AB – Sweden;
- University of Oslo – Norway
