The setting up of the International Laboratory of Social Integration Research at HSE University is part of the effort to generate the ‘know how’ and technical expertise. It will focus on international and interregional cooperation in research and teaching, and on creating an international network as a source of science, education, expertise and facilitation of social improvement and innovation.
For ten years now, HSE has been holding an annual grant competition for researchers who wish to start new international laboratories at HSE in collaboration with leading foreign scholars and scientists. The most recent competition reached its conclusion this past November, and now some of the selected proposed labs have already begun operation. Who are the competition winners and what kind of research will they be doing?
