Shared Use Equipment Center "Arktika"

Shared use equipment centre aims at fundamental and dedicated (chemical, geochemical, biochemical, nano, physical) research.

"Arktika" provides solutions to the strategic tasks and focuses on

  • development of the scientific basis for innovative eco-friendly technologies of deep processing of raw material to expand high value added product range;
  • development of tools and methods for ecological control and monitoring of the Arctic and sub-Arctic areas of the RF;
  • assessment of man-made environmental impact in the northern Russia caused by potentially hazardous productions and facilities; forecasting anthropogenically induced changes in the ecosystems;
  • study of condition of the Arctic biogeocenoses and ecosystems’ biodiversity;
  • fundamental and dedicated research in physical chemistry, chemistry of natural compounds, analytical environmental chemistry, organic chemistry, physics of disperse systems; chemistry and physics of materials, nano-materials and nanotechnologies;
  • chemical analytical research and expert examination services as may be requested by industrial companies, public bodies or civil society organizations;
  • sophisticated biochemical research supporting medical surveys that among other things relate to human adaptation to severe Arctic climate;
  • geochemical research into the geological processes occurring in the Arctic Region and into exploration of mineral deposits;
  • instrumental studies upon request from the University’s research teams.
