SCIENCE
The burst of activity in recent years has been a direct result of the wiring of the country, through NATO and Private investments to connect the most important research areas to the internet.
Tour Armenia
Updated 2017

Until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Armenia was one of the preeminent research centers of the Soviet Uni0n, With less than 1% of the Soviet population, Armenia conducted more than 4% of its research (leading subject being sciences, electronics, biotechnology and applied physics).

National Academy of Sciences, founded in 1943, developed into a network of 30 scientific research centers. Scientific research conducted through the Academy and its center was well known both in and outside the Soviet Union.  The economic crisis seriously affected the system, substantially reducing financing for research institutes. In 1990, 130 institutes employing 20,000 researchers operated in Armenia.

After 1991 the new Republic faced enormous challenges: the end of economic support from Moscow, the shut down of the transportation system that brought in raw materials, and the undeclared war with Nagorno-Kharabagh.

As a result most of the scientific institutes ended their work from 1991-1993, and many of its scientists emigrated to the West and Russia, where they could make a subsistence or better living. And in truth Armenia's centers were excluded from world centers during the Cold War, and with their loss of resources, were untouched by the burst of global communication in the 90's.

And in truth Armenia's centers were excluded from world centers during the Cold War, and with their loss of resources, were untouched by the burst of global communication in the 90's.

The burst of activity in recent years has been a direct result of the wiring of the country, through NATO and Private investments to connect the most important research areas to the internet. These include:

  • the Yerevan Institute of Physics (YerPhI),
  • the Institute of Informatics and Automation Problems (IIAP)
  • the Armenian Presidium of National Academy of Sciences (PNAS RA)
  • the Scientific Research Institute of Radio Measurements (SRIRM)

Also connected and immediately becoming functional were research areas is Ashtarak region, considered among Armenia's most important centers:

  • the Biurakan Astrophysical Observatory (BAO), origin of a new theory of stellar birth and evolution, as well as the idea of the nuclear activity of galaxies;
  • the Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics (IRPhE), where researchers investigate the fields of solid-state physics, semiconductor electronics, plasma physics, radio engineering, and automatic control;
  • the Institute of Physical Research (IPhR), specializing in laser physics, high-temperature superconductivity, and crystal growth;
  • the Orgov Station of Scientific Research Institute of Radio Measurements (OS-SRIRM), one of the leading institutes in microwave antenna and phase measurements in the world, where 10 state standards (the first national primary standards in antenna and phase measurements) were developed and are maintained; and
  • the Mashtots Engineering Center, where researchers investigate the physical properties of liquid and optical crystals, as well as the influence of low-frequency acoustic waves on the functional state of biological organisms.

Other centers receiving immediate growth are Armenia's Biodiversity, Biotechnology and Agro- Research Centers, and Micro-organism Research.
