- national Network of 56 Joints Use Centers created in 7 federal districts of RF
- accumulated 1,674 units of scientific equipment (total cost over 500 M€, i.e. about 5.5% of the cost of the national research equipment stock)
- renewing the centers’ instrumentation by 15% in 2005 and by 19% in 2006 as compared with 2004
