Radio Physics and Electronics Research Institute (IRE) was created at the Eurasian National University named after L.N. Gumilev (ENU) in 2015 as a platform on which young Kazakh scientists (graduate students, doctoral students, researchers) could work together with reputable domestic and foreign scientists within the framework of basic and applied research projects (R & D), affecting the problem of generation, radiation, propagation and scattering of electromagnetic waves of GHz, THz and optical ranges. Socio-economic impact of this decision implementation will be associated primarily with the growth of the intellectual potential of the country, with the accelerated training of national scientific personnel who can get world level results, with the ability to use the knowledge gained in the design and creation of new, unique instruments and devices of antenna and measurement technology, photonics and electronics, remote sensing techniques and non-destructive testing. All this is important for Kazakhstan, and for science and technology in general.

Practical activity of IRE is managed by: ENU Vice-Rector for Research and Director of the IRE, scientists from the Expert Council which consists of invited prominent domestic and foreign experts at solving specific problems.

Funding Sources: the budget of the Ministry of Education and Science (MES) of Kazakhstan, national and international grants for the implementation of search and research work, the performance of contractual research and development activities, commercialization of research, consulting and educational services.

Director of IRE: Seil Sautbekov, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor (tel: +7 (701) 924 11 67; e-mail: sautbek@mail.ru).

Address of IRE: SRI Radio Physics and Electronics ENU, Kazhymukan Str, 5, Astana 010008, Kazakhstan.
