-> Thank you. I think "task" is less common in English, and to use it makes the translation look too Russian-influenced.

the challenge of direct utilization ... is still far from being resolved

Explanation:
However, the challenge of direct utilization of nanomaterials in specific structures or components thereof is still far from being resolved.

agree  Vladimir Dubisskiy: it's definitely "challenge" here not a 'problem'. It sounds awkward with 'problem' (if it's a problem why bother at all :-))
 1 hr
-> Thank you, Vladimir. I thought so too.

neutral  Mark Berelekhis: Hi Roman. Agree overall, just that "resolved" applies more to issues or questions, rather than challenges.

-> There is such a fine line in this case between the two that, frankly, I don't even see the line ))

Hi Nick. Certainly. Here are Merriam-Webster's definitions:

Resolve: 4 a : to deal with successfully : clear up <resolve doubts> <resolve a dispute> b : to find an answer to c : to make clear or understandable d : to find a mathematical solution of, etc.

Solve: to find a solution, explanation, or answer for <solve a problem> <solved the crime>

As you can see, the differences for this context are rather significant. "Resolve" applies more to issues or disputes, while "solve" applies directly to challenges/tasks/problems.

 Asker: Hi Mark! Could you elaborate a little on the difference between "solve" and "resolve" with reference to "challenge"? Is there any?

agree  Vladimir Dubisskiy: it's definitely 'challenge' here not a 'problem'.
 1 hr
-> Thank you, Vladimir. I concur.

agree
 1 hr
-> Thank you, Andrew.

neutral  Alexander Onishko: hi, Mark! if you wish to use "challenge" then perhaps it is better to use the verb "respond" ? - "challenge of ... is far from being responded"
 1 hr
-> Hi, Alexander. I'm afraid "respond" doesn't quite apply here. In this context, "challenge" can only "solved."

Another variant.
