Russian Science Foundation Supports 15 Projects by HSE’s Early-Career Researchers
The Russian Science Foundation has announced the results of the youth contests of the Presidential Programme. HSE University’s early-career researchers are receiving grants for research projects in economics, psychology, sociology, political science, law, mathematics, information science, optics, engineering, and ocean studies.
Six HSE projects have been supported as a result of the ‘Independent studies by early-career researchers’ contest for the period from July 2023 to June 30, 2025, in the following fields: Mathematics, Informatics & Systems Sciences, Humanities & Social Sciences, Earth Sciences, and Engineering Sciences.
‘EU Actorness through the Prism of Interactionist Role Theory (Case Study of European-Chinese Relations): Challenges for Russia’, head Sergey Shein, Faculty of World Economy and International Relations (Centre for Comprehensive European and International Studies);
‘High-Choice Media Environment: Information Consumption in Contemporary Russia’, head Anastasia Kazun, Laboratory for Studies in Economic Sociology;
‘Non-Reflecting Propagation of Surface and Internal Waves in an Inhomogeneous Ocean’, head Ekaterina Didenkulova, HSE University in Nizhny Novgorod;
‘Mathematical Modelling of the Dynamics of the High-Speed Vehicles with Aerodynamic and Aerostatic Support’, head Fedor Peplin, HSE University in Nizhny Novgorod.
Seven HSE projects have been supported as a result of the ‘Studies carried out by teams headed by early-career researchers’ contest for the period from July 2023 to June 30, 2026 in the following fields: Mathematics, Informatics & Systems Sciences, Humanities & Social Sciences, and Physics & Space Sciences.
‘Development and Approbation of the Algorithm for Automated Analysis of the Court Decisions Texts for Socio-Legal Studies (Based on Cases of Violent Crimes)’, head Anton Kazun, Institute for Industrial and Market Studies (International Centre for the Study of Institutions and Development);

June 30, 2023 was the final day for the implementation of the three-year research team projects headed by early-career researchers supported by the Russian Science Foundation in 2020. Two HSE projects received grants enabling them to prolong their research until 2025:
‘Mathematical Modelling of Pathological Behaviour in Multiplex Networks Arising as a Result of Dysfunction of Single Elements in Application to Biomedicine Problems’, head Natalia Stankevich, HSE University in Nizhny Novgorod;
‘Categorization in Visual Perception and Formation of Actions’, head Elena Gorbunova, Faculty of Social Sciences (Laboratory for Cognitive Psychology of Digital Interface Users).
The Russian Science Foundation was created as a result of a presidential initiative in 2013. The foundation funds projects in science and technology, as well as supporting fundamental research.
