ABSTRACT
The era of rapid development of scientific and technological progress, prosperity and the highest development of Soviet science began in the period of 1960-1980-ies. It resulted in the development of studying the space, the appearance of lasers, computers, and other consequences of the Scientific and Technological Revolution. The Siberian Physical-Technical Institute has been involved in this process as the first university in the east of the country and one of the country’s largest research centers in the field of physics. During this period the subjects of scientific research, which were aimed at the development of basic research, have been completely changed and new scientific schools and directions have been developed. The main point of this article is focused on the model of development of scientific institutions in the system of higher education, which has been developed and proven by the director of SPhTI M. Krivov. This model is a good example of effective organization and development of scientific research and it allows us to estimate the value of university research to the strengthening of the scientific and educational potential of Siberia and the country. This article is intended for those who interested in the history of science and higher education, the history of Siberia and the Soviet period of Russian history.
