Startup Development Program

R&D Park is the first Russian infrastructure for creation and transfer of technologies in the field of precious metals, a platform for solving a mix of business and scientific tasks.

We launch a Startup Development Program for researchers, innovative companies and entrepreneurs.

Our goal is to find new projects and solutions related to precious metals, their various applications and processes of their production as well as the technologies and materials to replace precious metals in their current applications. We will offer to the authors of the selected projects ample opportunities for further development in collaboration with R&D Park and Krastsvetmet.

Directions for the projects selection

metallurgy, refining, use of non-ferrous metals (including medicine), additive manufacturing, environmental protection technologies, materials and technologies intended to replace the use of precious metals, etc.

production of fine powders with the desired properties made of the platinum group metals, silver and gold

powder metallurgy. up-to-date methods of technical appliances manufacturing

advanced electro-contact materials based on precious metals (i.e. alloys, adhesives, pastes, films, and composites)

dispersion-hardened alloys of the platinum group metals and their composites

precision metalworking

modern technologies of making precious metals coatings with desired properties

new approaches to the hydrometallurgical and pyrometallurgical processes in the precious metals refining

gases and industrial wastewater purification technologies

modern technological processes modeling methods for chemical and metallurgical industries

new materials and technologies, replacing the industrial use of precious metals

new precious metals applications

the use of additive manufacturing in the precious metals jewelry and technical appliances production

high-accuracy solids and liquids rapid composition analysis methods

selective separation of metals

catalysis processes
