"We are in the fourth place in terms of full-time equivalent researchers. The total number of citizens employed in the field of research and development is approximately 370 thousand researchers, in all fields of science. They are not only employees of organisations subordinated to the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, but also to various other Ministries, as well as corporations, state owned companies, and so on. There are 111 researchers per 10 thousand people," Trubnikov said.
