TOMSK, Feb 26 –
RIA Tomsk. Tomsk State University (TSU),
together with partners in "Big University" plans to open a Center of low-tonnage

previously reported that the "Big University" project involves the
unification of all universities and research institutes of Tomsk into a single
scientific and educational consortium with the preservation of the legal
autonomy of all participants. The main goal of the project – is to obtain a
synergy effect from the addition of scientific, educational and infrastructural
opportunities for full-fledged competition with world university centers.
task of the Center will be the development of chemical technologies of
customers at the experimental-industrial level, followed by their transfer to
production. From the point of view of financial costs, "test running"
of new technologies at small sites is several times more profitable than
approbation at large plants", – is said in the statement.
It is emphasized
that TSU intends to implement this project together with other participants of
the "Big University": scientific and engineering schools of partners,

It is assumed
that the center will have several buildings where, in addition to existing
equipment, pilot installations of a modular type will be placed, which can be
reassembled for different tested technologies. In addition to testing, the
center will be engaged in the preparation of technical documentation necessary
for launching the product in serial production.
discussed the model of the center and the prospects for its development at TSU
at a working meeting with the general director of JSC Spetskhimia (subsidiary
of Rostec Corporation) Yuri Zozulya. According to him, if the Tomsk citizens "manage
to put together the potential of several universities and institutes of
scientific schools, then a center may appear in Tomsk, capable of bringing
projects to their logical completion".
