Cascaded Gas Electron Multipliers (GEM) allow to construct detectors for charge particles tracking with high spatial resolution and rate capability. Such detectors can withstand high background fluxes up to 10⁵ particles/mm²/s and determine track coordinates with precision of 50-70 micron. These remarkable features of GEM govern the use of this technology in a number of experiments at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics. In this presentation the current status and progress in the performance studies and the development of the detectors for the tagging system of the KEDR experiment at the VEPP-4M collider and for the DEUTERON facility at the VEPP-3 storage ring will be covered. The new proposals for the upgrade of tracking and trigger system of the CMD-3 detector, the tracking detectors for the extracted beam from the VEPP-4M storage ring and the tracking detectors for the polarimeter at the VEPP-4M with the use of GEM technology will be discussed.
