HSE University is accepting applications for the three-year project competition for the creation of international laboratories. The winners of the competition will receive annual funding of up to 13 million roubles to conduct research from 2022 to 2024.

The main goal of the project is to create, support and develop world class research schools in a wide range of fields of knowledge at HSE University.

The International Laboratories Project has been successfully implemented at HSE University since 2010. Over the past 11 years, 50 international laboratories have been set up at the University with the participation of more than 70 leading foreign scholars from 15 countries. This has brought a wealth of invaluable research experience.

‘The network of international laboratories has become an important tool for updating the research and development agenda of the University. It also contributes to the internationalisation of the academic environment, the development of the competencies of Russian scientists and the training of young undergraduate and postgraduate researchers’, commented Maria Yudkevich, HSE University Vice Rector.

Working under the supervision of the prominent scholars—leaders in their scientific field, enables early caeer researchers to gain unique experience in international research projects. This builds an appropriate academic culture at the start of a research career. Early career researchers make up more than 70% of the research teams, and about half of the staff are undergraduate and postgraduate students of the University.

Based on the results of the competition, the winning research teams will receive funding of 39 million roubles for 3 years. The project budget provides ample opportunities for academic mobility, and procurement of equipment and software.

Projects submitted to the competition are subject to international expert evaluation. At the end of the three-year period, the research teams report on their results, and successful projects are renewed for another 3 years.

HSE University invites researchers who are ready to tackle ambitious challenges, form their own team of researchers, and work with HSE University’s postgraduate and undergraduate students to take part in the competition.

Detailed information on the terms and conditions of the competition is available on the project website.
