Targeted Drug Delivery, Multidimensional Blockchain, and Vision Enhancement: ITMO University’s Young Scientists Win SIE Support Grants
Eight Master’s and PhD students have been named among this year’s winners of the grant program UMNIK (Russian: “brainiac”), organized by the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). We’ve spoken to some of the young scientists to learn what they plan to do with their grants.
This year, ITMO University acts as the co-organizer of Vladimir Potanin Foundation’s Vladimir Potanin Foundation’s conference “Master’s Degree++: Programming the Future Education” conference. The event will take place in St. Petersburg on April 25-27 and will bring together the best lecturers for Master’s programs from Russian universities who became winners of the Grant Competition of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation. Among the speakers will be rectors of Russian and international universities, leading researchers and representatives of companies.
This year, the Potanin Foundation’s grant competition for Master’s-level educators has received 881 applications from 72 Russian universities. 100 participants of the competition will receive grants of up to 500,000 rubles. Of 28 applications submitted by ITMO University staff, three have been named among the winners. What are these projects? Learn below.
Every year, ITMO University students participate in summer schools both in Russia and abroad. This is a great opportunity to enhance your skills, broaden your horizons, establish useful connections or even develop your own project. The best thing about such schools is that the university covers up to 70% of the expenses. All you have to do is to apply for participation and financial support. ITMO.NEWS has already written about students who had taken part in short-term academic mobility programs, while in this article, we’ll tell you about the best summer schools to attend this summer and how to get there.
The ITMOSTUDENTS.Initiative grant is a new way for ITMO students to receive support for their dream projects. To apply for funding, all you need to do is fill out an application, outline your project’s goals and decide on the amount of funding you’ll need. Ekaterina Mashina, this year’s grant winner, shared with us her tips on how to apply and win.
The application process for the Potanin Scholarship Program for academic staff will close in two weeks. ITMO.NEWS has already covered the process of applying for a Vladimir Potanin Scholarship as a student. Now it is ITMO lecturers’ turn to share their experiences of winning the grant. Last year, Deputy Director of the Science Communication and Outreach Office Daria Denisova participated in the ‘New…’ category and won a scholarship for completing her ‘Navigator for a science popularizer’ project, while Faculty of Technological Management and Innovations professor Tatyana Maksimova, together with a group of colleagues, was awarded a grant in the ‘Study program’ category. Here are their tried-and-tested life hacks to help you increase your chances of success both in the Potanin Scholarship contests and other grants out there!
In 2010, Sir Andre Geim was awarded a Nobel Prize in physics for his groundbreaking work on graphene. It was his discoveries that led to the wonder material’s active proliferation in science and industry alike. Prof. Geim continues his revolutionary work on two-dimensional materials as part of his research group in the University of Manchester. The famed scientist presented his latest findings at the 2018 METANANO conference in Sochi and gave this exclusive interview to ITMO.NEWS and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology’s ‘For Science’ corporate journal, where he talked about why he doesn’t think that lifelong devotion to one scientific field is a good idea, what motivates young researchers to take the leap into fundamental science, and why scholars need to learn to communicate their findings to the wider audience.
The team of ITMO University’s International Research Center for Nanophotonics and Metamaterials has recently received the St. Petersburg government award for scientific support of young specialists’ training in the field of physics of metamaterials. What is more, this year three of the university’s scientists received presidential grants on research in the fields deemed strategically important for the country’s development.
A team of scientists from ITMO’s International Research and Education Center for Physics of Nanostructures, together with their colleagues from the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (Germany) and ETH Zurich (Switzerland), have been awarded a grant by the European initiative ERA.Net RUS Plus. Their three-year project concerns the modeling and design of new functional nanomaterials with potential applications in biomedicine and diagnostics. As the researchers note, nanomaterials based on ternary quantum dots can be used to create a sensor platform with unprecedented filtering and sensitivity capabilities for the purpose of multiplexed single-cell pathogen analysis. In the future, results of this research can contribute to the development of more precise and compact devices used for fluorescence analysis of nanostructures.
The Russian Ministry of Education and Science, along with the Presidential Grant Council, have announced the results of the open competition for presidential scholarships. These scholarships are provided to young scientists and postgraduate students who work on R&D in top-priority areas vital to the modernization of the Russian economy in 2018-2020. More than 2,000 applications were made; among 575 scholarship winners, 11 came from ITMO University.
