Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science

Institute for Problems in Materials Science (IPMS) is Ukrainian leading centre of advanced scientific and engineering services, technical consulting and contract research and development in the field of Material science and advanced technology of metal, ceramic and composite materials IPMS was set up in 1955 on the base of the laboratory for special alloys of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences. Since then it has progressively widened its fields of application and customer base. IPMS has no analogues among academic institutions due to a great variety of new developments in technological processes, materials and products on their base. IPMS employs about 1700 people, including 70 doctors and more than 345 Ph.D., among them Members of Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, professors. IPMS is a large scientific and research complex, including Special Design Bureau with Pilot Plants, Computer Centre and Laboratory for Basalt Materials Production. All achievements in the development of new materials with their further commercial application are supported by wide basic researchers in the field of solid-state physics and chemistry, inorganic physical chemistry, mechanics of deformable media. IPMS sells licenses on the advanced technologies as, well as set up Joint Ventures for the production of cutting tools, wear and corrosion resistant coatings using detonation spraying technique, ceramics for electrical application, ceramic powders of high purity.

IPMS and IDN cooperate in screening and promotion of technologies through the UNINI project funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
