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.
Sergei Khakhomov, the Rector of Francisk Skorina Gomel State University in Belarus has recently come to ITMO University. The universities have a long history of cooperation in the field of metamaterial research. In our interview, we talk to Professor Khakhomov about collaboration plans and asked why science has no borders and why the skills of scientists are more important for collaboration than a university’s prestige.
How is recycling organized in Italy, what is transition engineering all about, and how can its principles be applied to the operation of Russian companies in order to form a really effective recycling management system? Anastasia Pavlova, senior lecturer at the Department of Industrial Ecology and Safety, is working on a project that manages raw materials and wastes from the food industry, which answers these questions. She recently won an Italian government grant and has gone to the University of Bologna - the country's second largest university and the oldest educational establishment in Europe. In the course of her internship, not only does Anastasia plan to study Italian practices, but also enhance cooperation with Italian universities.
Experts claim that by 2020, half of all online requests will be done verbally, and a third of them won’t require any interaction with a display. Speech information systems are becoming more elaborate, and win their popularity with regular users. Still, what is this field of computer science really about, and where does one get relevant education in this field? Read our article to learn more about ITMO’s Department of Speech Information Systems that was launched in collaboration with Speech Technology Center, an international level company that focuses on speech information technologies.
As part of its new Art&Science Master’s program, ITMO University will host the Culture of the Future laboratory from May 18 to 20. The event will bring together artists, representatives of the field of innovations, journalists, culture experts, linguists and other specialists who are interested in introducing advanced technologies into nonscience. The laboratory will offer workshops and lectures by representatives of related fields. The project’s results will be presented during an open event on May 24.
