In our work, we value the research spirit most of all, which allows us to perceive each task as a creative challenge and an opportunity to discover something really new and valuable for our customers, society and for ourselves. This spirit cannot be imitated, it can only be created by long years of painstaking work of many creative and caring people.
Combining tradition and innovation
The average age of our team is a little over 30 years old, and we are not afraid of new approaches, fresh technologies, unusual and unexpected tasks. At the same time, we value traditions, knowing well that any new knowledge is on the shoulders of our predecessors and our own experience.

But we believe that thoughts should live, move freely, be collided about thoughts of other people. In other words, the truth is born if not in a dispute, then on basis of the dispute. This is where our active international cooperation grows — something, that has always been and remains the hallmark of the Institute.
Freedom must go side by side with responsibility, otherwise chaos ensues. We cherish our reputation, earned by years of hard work, and we demand the same from all our employees and contractors. We strictly ensure that our analysis based on reliable facts, proven methods, and contains convincing and reasoned conclusions. We strive to improve continuously the quality control system of our work.
