Search for Technologies
Upon requests of potential customers of R&D, experts of IFTI arrange search for the requested technologies in Russia in any areas of science or technologies. The customer formulates its technological problem. After that, IFTI searches for and screens the Russian scientific teams having adequate expertise, facilitates and accumulates proposals from the most promising ones, and transfers the proposals along with own expert assessment of each team to the customer. The customer makes the final decision, selecting the best team to perform the R&D. Further on, IFTI may arrange and manage the R&D project with the selected performing party. IFTI can also carry out the search on its own behalf, without disclosing the customer’s name.
IFTI has arranged similar searches upon requests of more than 40 companies like Air Products (USA), Clariant (Switzerland), DuPont (USA-Switzerland), Nissan (Japan), Procter & Gamble (USA-UK), Bosch (Germany) and others.
In the aftermath of the performed by IFTI searches and the resulted R&D projects a lot of high-tech products were developed, for example: training simulators for astronauts, new vaccines, solar cells of increased capacity, supersensitive “electronic nose”, unique reagents to increase oil recovery, industrial bactericidal filters, superconducting chip modules for meteorological balloons, laboratory complex for early diagnostics of viral infections, and many others.
