RSF launches virtual tours of Skoltech


A private international university founded in 2011, Skoltech trains a new generation of science, technology and business leaders, performs cutting-edge research and promotes technological innovation. The Russian Science Foundation’s 360 Science project invites users to experience Skoltech’s laboratories where scientists supported by RSF grants perform breakthrough research in photonics, advanced materials, life sciences, energy efficiency, and other fields.

Take a virtual tour of Skoltech at − a dedicated website that the RSF launched in 2021, the Year of Science and Technology in Russia, with the information support of the Russian Ministry of Education and Science.

The tour features Skoltech’s state-of-the-art facilities, including the Computational Materials Design Laboratory where scientists search for new materials with specified unique properties. It shows how researchers use mass spectrometry in biomedicine, ecology and agrobiotechnology and how the latest advances in photonics, materials science and acoustics help diagnose and treat health problems. The tour also includes a visit to the Advanced Imaging Core Facility that provides researchers with scanning and transmission microscopy services and other kinds of instrumental support.


The RSF’s 360 Science project offers virtual tours to leading Russian universities and research institutes. Designed as a set of spherical images, the tours show visitors around laboratories and clean rooms, offering a detailed view of the equipment and other items, enhanced by text, sound and video for clear and immersive presentation. Currently, 360 Science features virtual tours of Moscow State University, St. Petersburg State University, Institute of Cytology of RAS (St. Petersburg), Joint Institute for High Temperatures of RAS, Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of RAS, Institute of Mathematics of RAS, Institute of Organic Chemistry of RAS, Institute of Oceanology of RAS, Institute of Archeology and Ethnography of SB RAS, Institute of Molecular Biology of RAS, Nikitsky Botanical Garden, Kurchatov Synchrotron Radiation Source, Institute of Nuclear Physics of SB RAS, and Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.
