The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), thanks to its leading positions in world academic rankings, cooperates with private and state-owned companies in Russia and abroad. This was stated to RBC by the rector of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology Dmitry Livanov, commenting on the decision of the US Department of Commerce to add the university to the sanctions list.
“We are surprised by the decision of the US authorities,” he said. Livanov noted that the customers of fundamental research and applied developments at MIPT “are many commercial and state companies both in Russia and around the world.”
Livanov expressed the hope that the imposed sanctions will not prevent MIPT from cooperating in the academic field with US universities and research institutes, and the university will be able to “continue to build fruitful cooperation with leading world scientists and research centers for the benefit of the development of global science”.
