The Director of Institute of Oil and Gas of NCFU Sergei Beketov and the Head of Chair of Geophysical Methods, Search and Exploration of Mineral Deposits Abdul Kerimov won two gold medals and one silver medal at the 41st International salon "Geneva 2013 Inventions” in Switzerland.

One of the largest and prestigious innovation salons in Europe and in the whole world took place in "Palexpo” exhibition complex in Geneva under support of the Swiss government, State Council, Administrative Council of the city and the World intellectual property organization. This year the salon gathered 725 exhibitors from 45 countries and five continents which were presenting about 1000 inventions of their leading specialists and scientists. About 60 000 guests visited the exhibition for five days of its work.

The Russian delegation included representatives of different regions: Nizhny Novgorod and Ivanovo regions, Moscow, Ivanovo, Zheleznogorsk, Krasnodar and other cities. The only representative of North-Caucasus Federal District was Institute of Oil and Gas of NCFU.

Sergei Beketov and Abdul Kerimovwere presenting three patents for the inventions developed by the staff of Chair of Geophysical Methods, Search and Exploration of Mineral Deposits of the institute. All of them are oriented to assess the technical condition of wells and increase their productivity. "Interesting results were presented by many countries that’s why it was very pleasant that our works had been awarded. We exposed those patents for the first time and immediately received good results. We also have many other, not less important innovation projects which could be significant not only for our Motherland, but also for the world. We have something to demonstrate that’s why I think our institute should annually take part not only in this salon, but also other events,” Abdul Kerimov noted.

According to Sergei Beketov, at the salon they were able to establish business relations with the representatives of oil institutions of higher education from Romania and Saudi Arabia: "We were communicating with professors of higher education institutions from these two countries. We had known where and what equipment they buy, what scientific works they carry out. Of course, we hope for further cooperation”.

At the same time he notes that they are not going tostop at what has been achieved: "Participation in such salons is very prestigious. However, to win gold and silver medals is the highest assessment of our scientific developments at the international level. But we remember the idea that it is much more difficult to hold the award than to win it. We understand that to achieve this aim we need new, interesting, up-to-date developments. We have a lot of work to do. Now we are beginning preparation for the World salon of inventions which will be held in Brussels in autumn. Our institute started purchasing the scientific and educational equipment. We hope it will help us to raise the level of science and present not three but five or six our developments at such prestigious salons”.
