Institute for Informatics and Automation Problems of NAS RA

  • Overview

    The Institute for Informatics and Automation Problems of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia (IIAP) is a leading research and technology development institute of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia (NAS RA) in the domain of applied mathematics and informatics, as well as in the field of application of computing technologies in various fields of science and technology. IIAP's leading research and applications areas include:
    • Computer science and applied mathematics
    • Software tools, networking, and e-Infrastructures
    • Implementation of ICT for state and social needs
    IIAP operates the Armenian e-infrastructure, a complex national IT infrastructure consisting of networking, data, and computing infrastructures. IIAP actively supports and contributes to the development of Open Access and Open Science movements. In Armenia, those movements became a new impetus in 2020 when IIAP has launched the dedicated platform - Armenian OpenAIRE NOAD.

    IIAP supports the movement towards Open Science by organizing seminars, webinars and training events to inform the Armenian academic and research communities about the benefits of OA and stimulate the engagement and visibility of scientific productivity in open access repositories. It should be mentioned that in the future the particular initiatives dedicated to the Open Access policy will perform. This enterprise will generate a new glimpse into science with enhanced academic endeavors among Armenian academicians and young scholars.

    In 2010, an Armenian National Grid Initiative was established to promote and coordinate grid technologies in Armenia for interested ministries, scientific and educational institutes. In 2020, the “National Supercomputing Center” project was accepted by the Government of Armenia to research, operate, and transfer technology and knowledge in the area of HPC. Currently, the establishment of a National Open Science Cloud Initiative is in progress.

    The Armenian NOAD is a critical infrastructure to foster skills and interests to develop the methodologies and science policymaking in the framework of institutions, scholarly networks, and engagement of other stakeholders. The integration of individual researchers and young investigators may play a critical role in enlarging for visibility of their research output. Many efforts and crucial steps have already been achieved by successful collaborative partnership making and training students with OA data skills and knowledge. The primary purpose is to create a new productive cooperation network among scientific institutions and non-profit organizations to boost an academic impact and support new funding opportunities and project making.
