From February 28 to March 1, 2007 a conference in Russia reviewed the research done on the International Space Station in the Russian Segment from 2001 – 2006. The conference was attended by some 150 representatives of 25 organisations including the Russian Acadamy of Sciences, different companies as well as educational institutions.

In the six years reviewed, the Russian conducted 65 scientific experiments among them 10 already fully completed. The current and future research program includes 317 experiments. Most of these experiments will be started with the launch of the Russian Multipurpose Laboratory Module in 2009. This module will be based on the core modules of the ISS as well as the Mir space station.

The research covers all kinds of scientific disciplines like e.g. space technology and science, geophysical research, medical research, atmospheric sciences as well as not purely scientific space education.

Currently the Russian research program is hindered by the relatively small Russian segment that is mainly for control and life support for the ISS.
