General information

Official name:
Institute of Engineering and Metallurgy of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IEM FEB RAS)

Formed by Decree of the Presidium of the Far Eastern Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences dated 12th of July 1988 No. 90-a, the Institute of Engineering and Metallurgy (IEM) was established based on the scientific departments of the Mining Institute and the Computing Center of the Far Eastern Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. The establishment in the city of the only institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences was aimed at solving problems relevant for organizations related to the development of fundamentally new and modernization of existing industries and technologies used in engineering and metallurgy in a competitive market.
