In 1992, by the decision of the government of the Republic of Uzbekistan, on the basis of the research department "Composite and polymer materials" of the Tashkent Polytechnic Institute, which had been functioning since 1980, the Uzbek Republican Scientific and Technological Complex (STC) "Fan va tarakkiyot" was created under the Ministry of Higher and Secondary Special Education. Also, by the decision of the government and the corresponding order of the Ministry of Higher Education in 2004, STC "Fan va tarakkiyot" while retaining a legal entity, was transferred to the structure of the Tashkent State Technical University. And since 2007, it was transformed into the State Unitary Enterprise (SUE) "Fan va tarakkiyot" at TSTU and Academician of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan S.S. Negmatov was appointed its chairman. In 2016, Doctor of technical sciences, Professor N.S. Abed was appointed as a the Chairman of the SUE "Fan va tarakkiet".
The purpose and task of the enterprise is to conduct fundamental and applied research in the field of mechanics and technology, physics, chemistry of organic and inorganic composite materials based on local and secondary raw materials for the needs of various industries, agriculture, to create scientific foundations of effective technology methods and implement their results in production, as well as training of scientific and scientific-pedagogical personnel through doctoral studies and basic doctoral studies, as well as from among independent applicants.
Scientific directions of the organization:
The State Unitary Enterprise "Fan va tarakkiyot" employs 105 people, of which 69 are research workers, including 3 academicians of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan, 10 doctors of sciences, 12 candidates of sciences. These researchers are the leaders and executors of scientific projects.
In SUE "Fan va tarakkiyot" there is a scientific council DSc.27.06.2017.K / T.35.01 for awarding PhD and DSc degrees in specialties 02.00.07 - "Chemistry and technology of composite, paint and varnish and rubber materials" and 05.02. 01 - “Materials science in mechanical engineering. Foundry. Heat treatment and metal pressure treatment. Metallurgy of ferrous, non-ferrous and rare metals "(direction - materials science and metallurgy).
Since October 14, 1998, under license No. 00105 of the State Publishing Committee of Uzbekistan, SUE "Fan va tarakkiyot" has organized the release of the Uzbek scientific, technical and industrial journal "Composite Materials".
The journal is published 4 times a year, which highlights the current state of the problems of composite materials science in the field of chemistry, physics, mechanics and technology of composite materials.
