ArmInfo.Philip Morris has invested about $ 10 million to create a PMI Science research center at the National Polytechnic University of Armenia. According to the  press service of the Ministry of High-Tech Industry, 19 Armenian  scientists work in the center, who together with the Swiss center  carry out projects in such areas as databases, technologies and  materials science.

In parallel with this, the latter cooperate with  120 scientists from Armenian universities and research centers. The  company will allocate $ 8 million next year, according to the source.

Acting Rector of the National Polytechnic University of Armenia Ruben  Akhgashyan expressed the opinion that in parallel with the rapid  development of technologies, implementation of educational programs  can be possible thanks to this format of cooperation with the private  sector. At the same time, he expressed the hope that the PMI Science  model will become an example for the creation of such centers for the  development of technological thought.

Natalya Mayorova, General Manager of Philip Morris, noted that the  opening of the Center is the result of three years of work. She  emphasized that the research center was opened in Armenia due to the  fact that the environment that has formed in this country is  consonant with the main approaches and principles of the company. PMI  Science Center is the third in the world after Switzerland and  Singapore opened for investments by Philip Morris.

The research center's partner is the Enterprise Incubator Foundation.  To recall, in December 2017, the National Polytechnic University of  Armenia and the Philip Morris company signed a Memorandum of  Understanding. The document is aimed at providing assistance to  research programs of universities. The memorandum with the NPUA  provides for the creation of a research center on the territory of  the university.
