The Head of the Republic of Karelia visited the Physicotechnical Institute and scientific laboratories

PetrSU Rector Anatoly Voronin told Artur Parfenchikov about the construction of new facilities and introduced the scientific developments of Petrozavodsk State University employees in the field of microelectronics.
During the excursion, Artur Parfenchikov looked at the PetrSU Nanocenter, clean rooms, a laboratory of physics of intelligent nanomaterials with a computer-aided design system, a laboratory for signal analysis and data transmission.

Aleksey Shtykov, Deputy Head of the Department for Innovation and Production Activity of PetrSU, demonstrated to the Head of Karelia microcircuits and devices for storing information made by scientists. One of the complexes is designed to search for precious metals, it is already used in Sweden and Finland, and is in demand by Russian gold miners.

An example of cooperation between university science and industry is the use of IT technology at the Petrozavodskmash Foundry. University employees have created a monitoring system that automatically collects information about the operation of equipment, helps to reduce the likelihood of errors, track possible defects and prevent them. This system has already been implemented on two machines of the plant.

Undoubtedly, it is important for us that the achievements of our science are introduced into industrial production, first of all, in Karelia. So that the capabilities of our IT park could be used for solving practical problems by Petrozavodskmash, Foundry, Amkodor-Onego, Onega shipbuilding and ship repair plant, which is currently implementing the largest project to create the first digital shipyard in Russia,

– said Artur Parfenchikov.

The head of Karelia was also shown the sites where the construction of a hostel for 300 places is underway. The complex will include two residential buildings and one administrative building. To date, the concrete monolithic work has been completed, and the assembly of the blocks has begun.

Nearby, builders are building an indoor track and field arena. It should be noted that for the first time in the history of Petrozavodsk, a modern indoor track and field arena with a total area of ​​7400 sq. M. Will appear. This will allow holding sports competitions, organizing the training process in athletics and playing sports not only for students of PetrSU, but also for residents of Petrozavodsk and the Republic of Karelia.
