TPU Projects to Be Integrated into REC Program Promoted in the Tomsk Region

Governor Sergei Zhvachkin chaired an online meeting with the Supervisory Board of a world-class research and educational center currently being established in Tomsk. The REC project features technological initiatives supervised by Tomsk Polytechnic University. They are dedicated to the production of hard-to-recover oil, low-tonnage chemistry and new materials.


World-class research and educational centers are established in the regions under the SCIENCE national project. In Russia, at least 15 RECs are planned designed to ensure research and technological breakthrough of the country.
“The Tomsk Region is facing an ambitious task – to enter the top 50 world research and educational centers.

Governor Sergei Zhvachkin chaired an online meeting with the Supervisory Board of a world-class research and educational center currently being established in Tomsk. The REC project features technological initiatives supervised by Tomsk Polytechnic University. They are dedicated to the production of hard-to-recover oil, low-tonnage chemistry and new materials.

Sergey Zhvachkin emphasized.

TPU specialists are the leaders of three projects in the REC: Paleozoic Platform, Center for Low-Tonnage Chemistry, Advanced Materials and Technologies for Quality Assurance. All activities within the Paleozoic Platform are supervised by Acting Rector of TPU Andrey Yakovlev.

“We regard the project as such as the key to efficient carbonate oil production. Methods for the extraction of hard-to-recover oil reserves will be developed to adjust the production profile in the region.

The project is tailored to include several components. It is the center of excellence designed to train engineers of the future. We must train specialists who combine competences of entrepreneurs, researchers and engineers. This is work in a single ecosystem, a modern scientific infrastructure. Undoubtedly, this is the Paleozoic smart test ground for the development of a pool of unique technologies,” Andrey Yakovlev noted at the meeting of the Supervisory Board.

The REC Supervisory Board includes deputy governors Lyudmila Ogorodova and Andrey Antonov, President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Sergeyev, rectors of Tomsk universities, as well as heads of Tomsk high-tech companies.
