The award ceremony for participants of SUSU’s Support of Young Science contest will be held October 6that Pushkin Hall at South Ural State University.
The development of education and the stimulation of innovation are important strategic tasks for every country. The level of competitiveness of institutions of higher education is a visible demonstration of the level of development of science in the region and the engagement of innovations in the world trends.
The Ministry of Science and Education developed the 5-100 Project, whose goals are maximizing the competitiveness of Russian universities on the world stage and “enabling no fewer than five Russian universities to enter the top 100 of leading international universities according to the world universities ranking before 2020.” The stimulation of the development of scientific knowledge and scientific discoveries plays a huge role in this process.
South Ural State University is actively working to support young research and teaching staff. The goals of this work include introducing a system of grant support for young research and teaching staff and students. To solve this task, a project was developed for South Ural State University postgraduates entitled “Support of young research and teaching staff with grants for scientific projects, including the completion of practical training at the university’s leading research organizations”. Within the project, two contests were organized in 2017: the “Beginning of big science – 2017” intended for SUSU research and teaching staff, and “Scientific potential – 2017” aimed at postgraduate students of South Ural State University.
Participation in the contests involves satisfying a number of conditions. For example, for postgraduates, one important moment was their form of education and their success – participation was only open to those individuals whose grades were no lower than “good” and “excellent”, and it was required to have publications in the topic of their application in peer-reviewed Russian and international scientific journals indexed in Web of Science Core, Collection, or Scopus, or no fewer than two publications in a peer-reviewed journal recommended by the Higher Attestation Commission.
The winners of this contest were awarded financial support in the form of a payment for their excellent results in innovation and research. The size of this financial support is determined by the Organizational Committee each year.
After winning and receiving financial support, the contestants must present a report on the main scientific results in the appropriate scientific project.
This year, more than 60 staff and postgraduate students of South Ural State University participated in the contest, 30 of which received an award.
The expert commissions of both contests considered the applications until June 30th, 2017, and the winners were determined after July 1st, 2017.
The award ceremony for participants of the contests The Beginning of Big Science 2017 and Scientific Potential 2017 will be held October 6th from 15:00 to 16:00 in the Pushkin Hall.
We invite everyone to congratulate the young research and teaching staff and postgraduates from SUSU on their participation and victory in these contests. In addition, you may find out more about the contests dedicated to supporting young science at http://www.pmn.susu.ru/.
