Cienfuegos, September 9 (RHC)-- Researchers from the Center for Environmental Studies in Cuba’s Cienfuegos province and the All-Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Aviation Materials met here in Cuba last week to evaluate the results of their collaboration, under agreements signed in July 2016 and a joint work program set up in August 2017.

The Russian delegation was led by Evgeniy Nikolaev, deputy director of All-Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Aviation Materials, -- the largest Russian materials research center, devoted to the study of materials for the development of aeronautical and space techniques.

During their stay in Cuba, the Russian specialists visited Cuba’s National Center for Climate Research (CNIC). A business forum was also held focused on the development of cooperation in the field of corrosion, aging and bio deterioration in oceanic climate.

The leading materials research center of the Russian Federation, the All-Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Aviation Materials performs full innovative cycle from fundamental and applied researches to development of high-technology knowledge-intense production of materials of new generation, semi-finished products and unique technological equipment.

It develops and supplies a wide range of metallic and non-metallic materials, coatings, technological processes and equipment, methods and means of protection against corrosion damages and bio-deterioration.

The prestigious Russian institution has a successful cooperation program with Cuban scientific entities. It led to the creation of the Cuban-Russian Station for Climatic Testing of Materials and Structural Elements in the Caribbean Tropical Climate in December 2018, devoted to the development of joint research studies on the climatic and biological resistance of materials, and climate’s influence on ecosystem changing.
