Project mission is to establish reseacrh-educational center “Baikal”: science and education integration in the frames of geoecology complex study” (REC “Baikal”). The center is founded by Irkutsk (ISU) and Buryat (BSU) State Universities with the assistance of A.P. Vinogradov Institute of Geochemistry of SB RAS , Institute of the Earth’s Crust of SB RAS and System Dynamics and Control Theory of SB RAS. The center is based on УНЦ fundamental natural science basis (FSP “ Integration”, established in 1999 by ISU with the assistance of SB RAS) and UNESCO ISU water source department using current Research Centers.
Basic Project aims:
To fulfill scientific research and education unit are going to be formed within Research Center (RE- units) for each research task. Representatives of a certain institution department are involved in each RE-unit. Academic Council is formed by Research and development Center and RE-units’ management.
