Russian and Eurasian Scientists Compete with International Counterparts: Technology Advances and Commercial Opportunities Presented During American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Annual Meeting October 31 - November 4, 2005, Cincinnati, Ohio
Building on the success of the 2004 Moscow Chemical Science and Commercialization Conference (http://biistate.net/chemconference/2004/), the U.S. Department of State Office of Cooperative Threat Reduction (ISN/CTR), in conjunction with the International Science and Technology Center in Moscow (ISTC) and the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine (STCU), has invited more than 40 representatives from renowned chemical institutes in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine to participate and present at the 2005 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Annual Meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio. The goal for the scientists is to enhance sustainable partnerships by meeting with Western scientific and commercial counterparts to further establish cooperation.
The U.S. Department of State ISN/CTR Nonproliferation of WMD Expertise (NWMDE) programs are targeted nonproliferation initiatives engaging former Soviet weapons scientists in peaceful and sustainable civilian research with scientific and commercial collaborators. In the context of U.S. nonproliferation efforts and in cooperation with host governments, the long-term aim of the programs is to ensure opportunities for sustainable employment for participating scientists and engineers. Fostering sustainable partnerships with U.S. industry is an approach enabling mutual sustainability and commercialization.
During the AIChE meeting, Russian and Eurasian chemical experts from select institutes will participate in a poster session and three oral presentation sessions designed to specifically highlight science, technology, and commercial opportunities in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. The presentations will focus on: 1) Opportunities and Challenges: Doing Business in Russia and Eurasia; 2) Environmental Monitoring and Remediation; and 3) Drug Development, Toxicology Testing and Synthesis.
AIChE presents an opportunity for U.S. companies to meet with Russian and Eurasian scientists whose skills or capabilities might augment company or institute interests.
