The grants provide state support of scientific research works carried out under the supervision of leading scientists at Russian institutions of higher education and scientific institutions subordinated to the Federal Agency for research organizations and public research centers of the Russian Federation.
TsAGI’s project titled, “The Research and Development of Physical Models and Numerical Technologies to Describe Combustion Modes in Aircraft Engines,” is one of the best in the field of mechanics and engineering. It was implemented in collaboration with Vladimir Sabelnikov who is an expert of the French aeronautical organization ONERA. It is planned that as a result of the grant implementation the scientific centers of Russia and France will create a special laboratory where work on the project subjects will be carried out.
“This win once again demonstrates the high regard of TsAGI in scientific circles,” commented Sergey Chernyshev, Director General of TsAGI, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, speaking about the grant acquisition. “This government support in the form of a megagrant will help to significantly advance research in the area of highly turbulent flows, achieve breakthrough results for important and practical applications in the future.” Five hundred forty-two projects from 45 countries of the world took part in the competition. Forty works in total received state support in such areas as natural and exact sciences, engineering and technology, medicine, agriculture, social and human sciences.
The grants of the Government of the Russian Federation are allocated in the amount of up to 90 million rubles each year to carry out studies for three years
