  "For achievements that first make you smile, and then make you think", October 2012

One of the beneficiaries of the CNCP Programme -
the leader of the project "Production of nanodiamonds through ozone modification" Igor Petrov - has been awarded the IgNobel Prize. The award was made for his development of a method to convert old explosives into (nano) diamonds. The same basic values that have guided our Programme - in the spirit of converting "swords into ploughshares" - also appear to have attracted to the founders of this business to the idea of turning unused stockpiles of explosives into such a peaceful and attractive material as diamonds.

The opinion of the expert


  Farewel, good luck – and thank you!
(Dr. Fiona Harrison, Head of Programme UK Global Threat Reduction Programme, DECC)

In writing these words, it is difficult to avoid a feeling of sadness that the UK’s CNCP is coming to an end. But that feeling is in itself a mark of just how successful it has been. Over the past decade CNCP has expanded from the original Russian Closed Nuclear Cities to a number of NIS Institutes.

The opinion of the expert


  Closed nuclear cities partnership is an excelent example of a business-like, engaged, informal aproach
(Vladimir Sterekhov, Coordinator for International Closed City Programmes, International Co-operation Department Rosatom State Corporation)

The CNCP Programme has an excellent team of professionals, who adjusted to the specific features of the functioning of Russia’s nuclear weapons complex and so contributed at their level to the task of strengthening global nuclear security, developing Russian-British relations, contributing to the economic development of the Rosatom Closed Cities and improving the situation of small and medium businesses in the cities.

The opinion of the expert


  CNCP offers a comprehensive approach to the commercialization of science (Ivan Nekludov, General Director of the Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology, Member of the Ukrainian Academy of Science, he also serves as Secretary of the Academy’s Department for Nuclear Physics and Energy)

Using the results of scientific research in our daily lives, seeing our ideas being implemented and understanding their relevance – this is something which every scientist strives for. Helping scientists to realise their inventions, this in my view is the essence of CNCP.
