Vladimir Fortov, an academician and former Deputy Prime Minister of Russia

The government is planning to reform the Russian Academy of sciences. The Academy was founded in the 18th century and since then it has always been a public organization, more or less independent from the State. Why does the government want to have more control over science? Will it improve fundamental and applied research? The guest to answer these questions is one of the leading Russian scientists, academician and former Deputy Prime Minister - Vladimir Fortov.
