Mikhail Kovalchuk, President of NRC “Kurchatov Institute”: “MegaScience Projects are Attempts to Overcome Humanity’s Resource Crisis”

MegaScience projects are the scientific community’s attempt to respond to global challenges facing humanity. Only with the help of projects of a MegaScience level is it possible to overcome the resource crisis which otherwise will inevitably lead to global catastrophe. Mikhail Kovalchuk, President of the NRC “Kurchatov Institute” and a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, announced this thesis at the opening ceremony of the IV international conference “Crystal physics and the deformation behavior of promising materials”.
