Center for Scientific and Technical Creativity of the Youth
Centers for Scientific and Technical Creativity of the Youth Russian: Центры научно-технического творчества молодёжи, НТТМ, NTTM) were established in late Soviet Union during perestroika as enterprises whose goal was commercialization of science and technology.
The Centers were introduced by a joint decree of the USSR Council of Ministers, All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions, and Komsomol Central Committee no. 321 (March 13, 1987) "об образовании единой общегосударственной системы научно-технического творчества молодежи". They were established as subsidiaries of Komsomol raikoms.
The Centers enjoyed various benefits, including no taxes, only 3% contribution to the all-union fund.
The Centers continue to exist in modern Russia.
Similar establishments were the Foundations of Youth Initiatives (фонды молодёжных инициатив, ФМИ).
