Advisory Group for Research and Development in Biomedical Technologies

The Advisory Group for Research and Development in Biomedical Technologies (hereinafter – the Group) is an ad-hoc advisory group to assist in identifying research and educational priorities to meet long, medium, and short term economic needs. This ongoing collaboration enables Skoltech to prepare students with the technical and practical skills demanded by biomedical companies investing in R&D.
The Group consists of representatives from Skoltech, major biomedical companies, technological platforms which concentrate on carbon extraction and processing as well as other organizations and state bodies determining technological policy in this general sector.

• Elaborate on priority directions of scientific, technological, and educational programs in the area of Biomedical Technologies
• Provide for the exchange of knowledge among the Group’s collaborating companies and Skoltech in collaboration with universities and research institutions to orient programs training engineers and highly qualified technicians
• Prepare programs and initiate international educational projects based upon the technological needs of the Group’s companies
• Monitor and assess the scientific and practical significance of research conducted in part by Skoltech addressing the interests of the Group’s companies
• Collaborate with other Skoltech Advisory Groups in overlapping areas

Skoltech’s Vice President for Industrial Cooperation and State Programms coordinates the activities of the Group.
