HSE to Participate in NAUKA 0+ Festival

This year’s NAUKA 0+ festival aims to turn science into something anyone can grasp. At the festival, various laboratories and universities open their doors to anyone and everyone with an interest in science and research. What will people learn about HSE at the festival? What new things will they see and discover? Let’s find out!

Lectures by HSE Professors and Researchers

Leading scientists from the Higher School of Economics will speak with guests about the future and the phenomena that guide human behaviour. Vasily Klucharev, who is a Professor in the Faculty of Social Sciences and the head of the HSE School of Psychology, will give a lecture entitled ‘Neuroeconomics: How Our Brains Make Decisions.’ During the lecture, Professor Klucharev will discuss the science of neuroeconomics and allow listeners to formulate or change their opinions on problems surrounding free decision-making and behavioural mechanisms. Next, Liliana Proskuryakova, Associate Professor in the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge, will uncover the possibilities of energy sources of the future during her lecture ‘Renewable Energy Sources in Russia – at Home, in the Village, and in the City.’ We might be able to survive after our coal sources are depleted in 100 years and gas and oil in 50.

Address: Moscow State University’s Shuvalov Building, auditorium B5 (27 Lomonosovsky Prospect, Bld. 4)

Date & Time: October 9, Vasily Klucharev – 11:00 a.m., Liliana Proskuryakova – 12:15 p.m.
