Competition to Launch Experimental Research Laboratories Remains Open Until September 30
The competition is open to research projects in the fields of biophotonics and ageing (biology, physiology, biomedicine, biostatistics, and bioinformatics). The competition is aimed at creating, supporting, and developing science and international-level schools at HSE University. The university is also working to develop modern infrastructure for its natural sciences cluster as part of its active involvement in global research.
The results of the competition will be used to create laboratories at HSE University’s faculties and institutes. Funding is scheduled to continue until the end of 2026, though the laboratories’ work may be extended based on the findings of international expert assessments conducted independently every five years.
The winners of the competition will receive up to 180 million roubles in 2022–2023 for purchasing equipment, and up to 13 million roubles per year in 2022–2023 and up to 17 million roubles per year in 2024–2026 to cover wages, academic mobility, consumables, equipment maintenance and other associated costs.
Criteria for participation in the open competition include the level of scientific publications by the laboratory team, experience in conducting experimental research, the number of patents and patent applications, the relevance and novelty of the planned research, and the feasibility of achieving the declared research results under the stated terms and methods.
The research should not duplicate any research carried out presently or in the past as part of other projects implemented at the University or outside it.
The Head of the Laboratory and key members of the research team have the right to participate in one application submitted to the competition.
Maria Yudkevich, HSE University Vice Rector, notes that the competition can help the university to attract teams of researchers and talented young people to conduct promising breakthrough research in Russia. The researchers will have the opportunity to implement their ideas and create world-class laboratories. HSE students will be able to participate in the work of experimental laboratories, allowing them to join a research track during bachelor’s studies and become part of the global research process. The University will significantly strengthen its scientific infrastructure and benefit greatly from the synergy of the work done by existing and new research groups.
Maria Yudkevich also hopes for the integration of experimental laboratories with leading Russian research centers and universities working in priority scientific areas.
Applications are open until September 30, 2021. The results of the competition will be announced by December 25, 2021. Please see the competition website for more information about its terms and requirements.
HSE University has announced an open project competition to create experimental research laboratories in the natural sciences. The competition is open to research projects in the fields of biophotonics and ageing (biology, physiology, biomedicine, biostatistics, and bioinformatics.)
On June 1, the HSE Academic Council approved a list of new research laboratories at the University. Their respective research agendas cover various fields, from transcendent philosophy and international law to bioinformatics and visual perception and attention modeling. On June 5, all of the laboratories commenced their activities at five HSE faculties.
Professor Jonathan Linton, Power Corporation Professor for the Management of Technological Enterprise of the University of Ottawa, Canada, and Editor-in-Chief of the ‘Technovation‘ journal has been appointed as the new Head of the HSE Laboratory for Science and Technology Studies at ISSEK the Institute of Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge. In this interview for the HSE English Language News Servicel he talked about what he hopes to achieve in his new job.
An International Laboratory of Quantitative Finance will open at the HSE, as part of a competition aimed at attracting leading scientists to Russian universities. It will be headed by one of the leading international experts in stochastic analysis and financial mathematics, Professor Yury Kabanov.
Last year the HSE-Perm established a new Scientific Research Laboratory for Industrial Organization Empirical Analysis. Grigory Kosenok, Full Professor of the New Economic School and Research Manager of the Laboratory, talks about the laboratory and the International Conference on Applied Economics which will be held in Perm HSE in September on September 18-20, 2013 where international specialists to be keynote speakers at the Conference have been invited.
One of the HSE’s applications was a winner at the third competition to attract leading researchers to Russian universities. The competition was held by Decree No. 220 of the Government of the Russian Federation. A new Laboratory of Mathematical Finance at the HSE will be headed by Yury Kabanov, Professor at the University of Franche-Comté (Besançon).
Alexey Zakharov, Associate Professor in the department of Advanced Mathematics in the HSE Faculty of Economics, is a member of the Committee of the European Political Science Association - a professional community of specialists who apply a variety of different methods in their analysis of the field as it is understood today.
The International Laboratory for Educational Policy Research has been working at the HSE for more than a year. Its academic supervisor, Stanford University professor Martin Carnoy told us about the results of this year’s research, their forthcoming plans and the future of the laboratory.
For over a year now John Nye, professor of George Mason University (USA), has been heading the HSE International Laboratory of Institutional Analysis of Economic Reforms. During his most recent visit to Moscow, Professor Nye told the HSE reporter about how the laboratory’s work is organized and what staff it needs, as well as about its research and new courses, some of which will be launched in May.
On November 25th a reporting conference of the HSE Laboratory for Comparative Social Research (LCSR) on ‘Comparative Sociology in Quantitative Perspective’ was held at the HSE.
