Far Eastern Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (1991-1999)
Attaching great importance to development of the fundamental science as basis of economic, social and cultural development of Russia, President of the Russian Federation, decreed on November 21, 1991 (decree ¹ 228) "On the foundation of the Russian Academy of Sciences".
The scientific base of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences is strong enough. Today, there are 35 research institutions under 6 regional scientific centers (Amur Scietific Center, Kamchatka Scientific Center, Primorsky Scientific Center, Sakhalin Scientific Center, North-East Scientific Center, and Khabarovsk Scientific Center).
The staff of the FEB RAS is 7,435 members, including 1,461 research staff members (13 Academicians, 20 Corresponding Members, 271 Doctors of Sciences and 1,157 Candidates of Sciences).
Scientific activities are focused on studies of geology and geophysical consistent patterns of evolution and structure of the transition zone from the continent to the ocean, development of scientific basis for technologies for complex processes of automation and making of expert systems, development of communication systems, evaluation of seismic and volcanic danger, fundamental research of biodiversity, evolution and ecology of the plant and animal kingdom of the Far East, study of molecular basis of structure of marine biological systems, investigation of principles of molecular structure of marine biological systems, investigation in molecular immunology, biotechnology, oceanography, history and ethnography.
Institutes of the FEB RAS conduct research on 326 scientific topics.
There are creative ties between the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Far Eastern State University (FESU). FEB RAS Professors deliver lectures in the FESU; students participate in academic expeditions and conduct joint research at various scientific schools. After the well-known turn of the Russian history these relations became not so strong. In addition to creative contacts it was necessary to have money for joint work.
The federal program "Government Support of Integration of Higher Education and Fundamental Science in 1997-2000" was launched. The FEB RAS and FESU have prepared some substantial projects jointly with other higher institutions that were successful in competition and got financial support. 37 projects were winners of the "Integration" and this put forward the Far Eastern region to one of the leading places in Russia due to quantity and quality of integration projects.
