Technology for 2012,

The award of this highest award of the recognized global science community and are disruptive in nature. Thus, the archaeological finds in the Altai Academician Anatoli Derevianko became a worldwide sensation, changed the previously existing basic understanding of the evolution of modern humans. Conducted in one of the best laboratories in the world — the Max Planck Institute — anthropological study of the remains of the Denisova Cave of the Altai age of about 50,000 years, established the existence of previously unknown populations of fossil man, named Homo altaiensis.

The work of academician Derevjanko generated enormous interest in the world.

George Karzov, Yaroslav Shtrombakh and Alexei Oak awarded the Prize for the development of materials for nuclear reactor vessels. The authors managed to significantly outstrip global level in this challenging and prestigious area of nuclear energy. This opens up significant opportunities for the industry to export Russian reactors. For example, the design life of the reactors of high power increased several times and is 80-100 years. The materials used for the manufacture of cases of domestic reactors, and in nuclear power plants "Tianwan" (China) and "Kudankulam" (India). The authors developed a method for assessing the safety of nuclear reactors buildings are included in the guidance documents IAEA and European Norms strength calculation.
