Professor Abrikosov is the scientific supervisor of the laboratory at The National University of Science and Technology MISiS, "Modeling and development of new materials," head of the department of theory and modeling of the Institute of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, Linköping University (Sweden). And also he is a member of the board of trustees of Europe's largest scientific Psi-k community. Advanced research in the field of materials modeling is conducted under the leadership of Igor Abrikosov at The National University of Science and Technology MISiS.
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences is an independent non-governmental organization whose purpose is the development of science (especially of mathematics and natural sciences). The Academy was created in 1739. One of its founders and the first president is the famous Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus. Academy awards a number of prestigious international awards, including the Nobel Prize in physics and chemistry, the Nobel Memorial Award in Economics, Crafoord Prizes.
Igor Abrikosov is the winner of the Russian Federation Governmental megagrant competition (years 2014-2016) with funding of 90 million rubles. Supercomputer cluster was discovered in the laboratory "Modeling and development of new materials" at NUST "MISIS" created within grant. The aim of the cluster is the acceleration of the development and launch of new materials with desired properties to the market. In late 2014, the number of computing nodes in the cluster has been increased from 64 to 100, which made it possible to raise the peak performance of the cluster from 21 to 33 teraflops. In the future, the university hopes to achieve a capacity of 300 teraflops.
