Scientific directions

The Russian Science Foundation (RSF) supports research activities at the Institute within 62 projects, or 76 projects with the branches included (2019).  According to the RSF, the Federal Research Center is among the leaders in the number of projects supported in 2018: it holds the fourth place among all Russian institutions (after MSU, SPSU, and B.N.Yeltsyn UFU) and is the first among the institutes of the RAS.
Each year, the Institute performs more than 200 research projects under grants from the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.

Since 2012, IAP RAS has been working on grants from the Government of the Russian Federation for state support of scientific research conducted under the guidance of leading scientists (mega grants). Currently, the project "Quantum effects in highly localized intense laser fields" is underway (leading scientist - Gerhard Leuchs, project leader – A. V. Andrianov, PhD in phys. & math).

Five projects have been completed, but the scientific laboratories created within the projects continue to work.
