The Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences promotes organization of Siberian International Research Centres - open laboratories, where researchers of all nations may work together with the researchers of Russia. They are governed by the international scientific advisory boards which select projects already having financial support of national agencies. Host Institutes of the Siberian International research centres provide all necessary logistic support (laboratories, cars, ships, analytical equipment, etc.).

The International Centres of this new type have proved to solve successfully three major tasks:

The most interested foreign participants make their financial contributions, and contributions "in kind" to develop the infrastructure of the Siberian International Research Centres.
