The Russian Government has been instructed to ensure an increase in the volume of budgetary allocations transferred to the Russian Science Foundation as the Russian Federation’s material contribution to the financial and organisational support of fundamental and exploratory scientific research in 2024.

In particular, the instructions issued to the Government concern the transfer of unused technological and auxiliary equipment designed to produce electronic components and included in the balance sheet of scientific and higher education organisations for use by manufacturers of electronic products; the establishment of a centre for scaling up domestic scientific developments in the field of chemical and biological catalysts at the premises of two federal research centres – the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis and the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences; expanding opportunities for underwater scientific research, creating a regulatory framework for it and providing diving training to personnel so that they can collect and study material from the underwater environment of the World Ocean; activities to highlight the achievements of Russian scientists in the field of paleogenetics and archaeogenetics, including providing relevant stories for news programmes broadcast on Russian mandatory public television channels; developing a draft Presidential Executive Order On the National Centre for the Genetic Resources of Farm Animals and Their Wild Related Species.

In addition to this, the Government has been instructed to submit proposals on how to expand cooperation with BRICS member states regarding joint research in the field of monitoring climate-active gases and measuring the carbon balance of ecosystems, including the development of data collection and processing systems for assessing anthropogenic and natural flows of greenhouse gases and other climate-active substances; mutual recognition of methods and technologies in this area; and developing joint scientific and technical solutions aimed at mitigating the anthropogenic impact on the environment and climate and adapting the economies and populations to climate change.

The Government of the Russian Federation, together with the Russian Science Foundation, as well as the Russian State University for the Humanities and Kuindzhi Mariupol State University, has been instructed to organise (starting from 2024) an annual international conference on social and human sciences in Mariupol, as well as the school for young researchers within its framework, in order to preserve the historical unity of the peoples of Russia.

Joint instructions to the Russian Government and the Rosneft oil company concern the development of projects implemented by the company as a technology partner of the Federal Scientific and Technical Programme for the Development of Genetic Technologies for 2019–2030.

Joint instructions to the Russian Government, the Government of the Sakhalin Region and Lomonosov Moscow State University involve the creation of a marine biological station at Cape Anastasia (Sakhalin Island).

Joint instructions to the Russian Government, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, and the Roscosmos State Corporation deal with the creation and launch of small spacecraft into outer space, with the participation of schoolchildren, students and young scientists. They also concern the creation of a network of ground-based research complexes to work with small spacecraft launched into outer space at educational organisations, with the possibility of involving interested foreign citizens and organisations to the work of these complexes.

The Russian Academy of Sciences, together with the Russian Science Foundation, has been instructed to submit proposals on developing approaches to conducting an independent ethical assessment of the results of scientific, technological and innovative activities.

The State Duma, together with the Russian Government, have been advised to ensure the adoption of a federal law on bioresource centres and biological (bioresource) collections.
