Days of France in Boreskov Institute of Catalysis: Semicentenary of Collaboration and a New Chevalier of Order of Academic Palms

11 November 2016

On November 7-9, Boreskov Institute of Catalysis welcomed a regular Russian-French workshop of the International Scientific Association “Catalytic Processing of Biomass into Valuable Products” (GDRI “Biomass”). The Association participants are Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (BIC) SB RAS (Novosibirsk), Institute of Chemistry and Chemical Technology (ICCT) SB RAS (Krasnoyarsk), Siberian Federal University (Krasnoyarsk), Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse et l’Environnement de Lyon (IRCELYON), Institut de chimie de la matière condensée de Bordeaux (ICMCB), Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, and Laboratoire des Matériaux, Surfaces et Procédés pour la Catalyse (LMSPC Université de Strasbourg). 

The workshop marked the 50 years of the French-Russian science & technology collaboration and 20 years of collaboration of Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) and Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR). The participants of the workshop presented more than 15 lectures, discussed the plans for future research, and visited the laboratories of BIC, where they highly praised the analytical facilities and equipment of the Institute.

The successful collaboration of the Russian and French Institutes of Catalysis led to the widening of the range of research and the circle of organizations involved from both sides. In 2012 a new format was acquired - the International Scientific Association “Catalytic Processing of Biomass into Valuable Products” (“Biomass”). It was joined by the rest of the participants, and this is how the Association functions now. It is coordinated by BIC director deputy Prof. Oleg Martyanov and IRCELYON director Prof. Catherine Pinel. There are three directions of research in the Association: biomass conversion into energy, functional materials and valuable chemical products.


Working at the workshop

As Prof. Martyanov says, “The work in the format of joint laboratories on certain subjects of research is the most efficient form of cooperation and helps to openly discuss the results of the basic studies, reach deep integration and supplement the experience and developments of the sides. The success of such cooperation is confirmed by the numerous high-rated papers. We should understand that the financial support of the joint studies is low and limited by the opportunity to receive the RFBR grants for the bilateral Russian-French projects and fellowship for the postgraduate students and young scientists financed by various foundations (Vernadski Foundation, Ostrogradski Foundation, etc.), including the short-term trainings in the scientific organizations in France. Thus, for the collaboration period more than ten young scientists used the opportunity to conduct their studies in the research bodies in France”.

The motivation for the collaboration and the key to its success are the young scientists, first of all, postgraduate students conducting research that later becomes the foundation for their PhD theses, acknowledged both in Russia and France. For the years of the joint Russian-French postgraduate training program seven theses have been defended, and the defenders received their PhD diplomas of Universities of Lyon, Bordeaux, or Strasbourg along with the Russian Candidate’s Degree. Three books, more than 60 papers in the scientific journals, more than 120 lectures on conferences, the annual binary workshops – all this is the result of this work.

The cooperation of the Russian and French organizations in the field of catalysis and the contribution of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis into the development of this collaboration received an important sign of recognition as the Russian coordinator of “Biomass” Prof. Oleg Martyanov was awarded the Order of Academic Palms for his merits in science and education. The decree was signed by Prime Minister of France in 2016.
