The BMSTU Research and Educational Centre for Plasma Science and Technology was officially opened on April 10th 2013. During the preparation stage of the laboratories already a series of lectures was started in order to prepare the students for the new opportunities which the Centre will offer. Plasma Science and Technology - and this may come as a surprise to some - has become a major growth area, mainly through new discoveries (such as plasma crystals), new frontiers (such as high power lasers), interdisciplinary applications (such as plasma-biology, plasma-medicine and plasma-colloid physics) and technological advances (such as mono- and multilayer surface applications) as well as progress in plasma-chemistry, novel materials and plasma source design. The Centre for Plasma Science and Technology focuses on these modern and innovative aspects of plasma research and aims to play a major role in these fields. Economically, some of these topics have the potential to become major “‘disruptive technologies ” with the corresponding impact on society. Thus the Centre - in its current form and the planned additions — will play an important role in shaping this future. In the following, a brief summary of the activities, now and in future, will be presented.
