CEO of 02 Light Systems on Importance of Seeing Eye to Eye with Engineers and Working with Universities
Modern companies in the field of hi-tech equipment development have to deal with challenges that are many and varied. How to find clients and stay in the market? How to build good working relationships among the staff? How to convince scientists in the benefits of joint collaborations and implement their ideas in real-world developments? Igor Seredin, CEO of 02 Light Systems, a company that is part of ITMO Technopark, knows the answers to these topical questions.
On February 8, the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art will host the ITMO Open Science Conference. The event will bring together ITMO University’s researchers, PhD students and heads of the University’s departments, who will talk about the latest achievements in an unusual format. The conference’s mission is to provide a platform for efficient communication and knowledge exchange between the University’s schools and faculties.
The SURF Stanford US-Russia Forum is a year-long program for students and specialists from Russia and the USA who want to study the most relevant issues of today together. Each year, participants of SURF get to work alongside each other on research projects in the fields of politics, science, business, and others, to complete an unusual research/diplomacy program and to present the results of their work at Stanford University. This year, one of the program’s participants was Daria Denisova, the deputy head of ITMO University’s Science Communication Center. She spoke with ITMO.NEWS about taking part in SURF and getting to work with a space scientist from MIT.
Starting from this year, Diakont Jsc and ITMO University have launched a new subdivision, the Institute of Intelligent Industrial Technologies. What’s more, the partners are currently collaborating on a network Master’s program; its students get the opportunity to combine study with work, get jobs in hi-tech fields and introduce their inventions. In future, they will also be offered a chance to do internships at Diakont’s new plant in Italy. Read more about the workings of the new subdivision and the future prospects of the new Master’s program graduates.
Rostelecom and ITMO University have signed a cooperation agreement on joint acceleration programs and technological startups development. Together, the company and the university will launch several acceleration programs, as well as other educational events aimed at supporting Russian scientific organizations and industrial enterprises that specialize in information and communication technologies, cutting-edge products for all sectors of the economy, as well as software and hardware-software systems.
An international research team has found a way to make frequency conversion of light at the nanoscale a hundred times more efficient. The new method is based on isolated dielectric nanoparticles supporting the so-called bound states in the continuum. Such states appear when radiating fields in the particle suppress each other, so that the electromagnetic energy inside the particle can be trapped. This prediction can be employed for a new generation of tiny frequency conversion devices, nanolasers. The research was published in Physical Review Letters on July 19, 2018 as a cover story.
Last year, an International Research Consortium, which includes ITMO University’s Center for Nanophotonics and Metamaterials, was awarded a European Horizon 2020 project. The M-Cube project unites scientific groups and companies from seven countries working on new antenna technology for 7T MRI. In the coming two years and a half, scientists plan to create a device which could be used to accelerate MRI. ITMO.NEWS talked to the scientists about the project and the results. Among the scientists who came to ITMO University were Dr. Redha Abdeddaim, an assistant professor at Aix-Marseille University – Institut Fresnel, one of the scientific coordinators of the project, Dr. Marc Dubois, a postdoc at Aix-Marseille University – Institut Fresnel, and Dr. Julien de Rosny, a senior scientist at CNRS – Institut Langevin.
Representatives of Tsinghua University have recently visited ITMO University. They discussed collaboration opportunities in the field of academic exchange with scientists from the International Institute “Photonics and Optical Information Technology” and other research centers. An agreement on cooperation has already been signed between the two universities. The professors from Taiwan university also shared their ideas in the field of photonics, big data analysis, AI development and electronic engineering. They have also talked about some aspects of teaching in Taiwan.
ITMO University became a participant of the French-Russian University (FRU), a consortium that unites more than eight leading French and Russian universities. The project’s goal is to create a barrier-free space for academic cooperation and training the staff of international companies. Participation in the consortium allows the universities to establish educational and research partnership, to organize academic exchange programs and summer schools as well as to initiate joint research projects.
Kirill Keller and Vladislav Slabov, ITMO University’s Master’s students, spent the last three months at the University of Aveiro (Portugal) as part of the Erasmus+ program. ITMO.NEWS asked them about their recent experience of studying in Portugal and their research projects.
