Abstract. The article describes the results of the inventory of the unique research equipment conducted by IMEMO RAS in 2009-2010 as an order from the Ministry of Education and Science of the RF. The methodology used for the survey was partially based on the EC experience which is also presented in the article. The results of the analysis suggest that the unique equipment is more actively used in RAS institutes rather than in universities. However the speed at which equipment is renewed is higher at universities, due to the special government policy. The most severe problems related to support of unique infrastructure are associated with the lack of financing and resources for technical maintenance. In conclusions possible directions for improvement of the government policy towards research infrastructure are outlined.
