At the initiative of the Department of Nanotechnology and Information Technology of RAS, the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences a new scientific award for outstanding achievements in micro- and nanoelectronics – a gold medal named after academician Kamil Valiev was established. The resolution was published on RAS website. The first year of the award was declared to be 2021, and the awarding is going to be dated for the birthday of Academician Valiev - January 15, 1931.

“In order to keep the memory of the outstanding scientist and science organizer, academician Kamil Valiev, the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences decides: to establish a gold medal named after Valiev, awarded to Russian scientists for outstanding works in micro- and nanoelectronics,” the resolution states.

The Department of Nanotechnologies and Information Technologies of the Russian Academy of Sciences headed by academician Gennady Krasnikov will review the applications and approve the laureates.
Kamil Valiev - Soviet and Russian physicist, scientific director of the Physics and Technology Institute of the RAS, one of the founders of Russian microelectronics, was the first head of MERI and since the institute had been founded he was developing his own scientific school.

Academician Valiev was the author of several monographs, more than 600 scientific works and inventions. With his active participation, experimental studies were carried out in the field of magnetic resonance, comprehensive studies on the creation and industrial development of the first Russian integrated circuits for computer technologies.

He was the first in our country who conducted theoretical studies and developed the physical principles of field-effect transistors, the foundations of the technologies used in the production of a new class of high-speed integrated circuits.

His works were also devoted to quantum informatics, the principles of construction, technology for creating quantum computers and quantum communication systems. In 2020, a street in Zelenograd, where the MERI office is located, was named in honor of Academician Valiev.
