Computing Center of the Union State of Belarus and Russia in Nanotechnologies will be created in 2012

Within the framework of the joint Belarusian-Russian Program "Nanotechnologies – US" supported from the budget of the Union State of Belarus and Russia in 2009-2012, it is planned to set up a Computing Center of the Union State of Belarus and Russia in Nanotechnologies. This Program is aimed at developing nanotechnologies and nanocomponents of board computers of space apparatus, and also different nanosensors and nanotransmitters. The main idea is to decrease mass and size of satellites. Besides, new materials for electronics, medicine and transport will be developed.

The Center will include a data base on nanotechnologies and computer resources for calculating characteristics of nanomaterials. Information about patents, companies and latest developments will be available not only for researchers but also for interested parties from different sectors of the economy of Belarus and Russia. The first small part of the Center will be launched in 2010.
