Prof. V. Betelin in 1984–1986 was Head of Laboratory, Cybernetics Committee, USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1986–1988 he worked as Vice Director for Research, Computer-Aided Design Institute, USSR Academy of Sciences, as Acting Director in 1989-1990, and as Director between 1990 and 2015. Now he is Scientific Adviser, System Analysis Research Institute (a Federal Research Center, Russian Academy of Sciences). Since 1997 V. Betelin has been Director, Microtechnologies Institute, Kurchatov Research Institute. Since 2010 he is Scientific Adviser for supercomputing technology development and non-defense industrial applications, Russian Federal Nuclear Research Center, Institute for Experimental Physics.

Currently Prof. Betelin’s areas of research are supercomputing technology, supercomputer architecture and hardware. Prof. Betelin’s major achievements for the last 20 years include: a secure hardware and software platform, domestic 32- and 64-bit RISC-microprocessors, submicron VLSI, a domestic real-time operating system, advanced automated application development tools, a domestic submicron (0.5/0/35/0/25 m) VLSI production line.
