Just before the SUSU’s Anniversary a meeting of the International Scientific Council will be held on December 13th, which will be dedicated to the university’s history and its achievements within Project 5-100. The meeting will be hosted by SUSU Rector Aleksandr Shestakov.
The following guests are expected to participate in the International Scientific Council meeting: Michael Train, President of Emerson Automation Solutions; Dr. Jack Dongarra, Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of Tennessee; Dr. Ashokkumar Muthupandian, Professor at University of Melbourne; Dr. Panayiotis A. Koutentis, Professor at University of Cyprus; Dr. Maria Josefa Yzuel, Professor of University of Barcelona; Dr. Jaewan Kim, Professor at Korea Institute for Advanced Study; Dr. Ron de Kloet, Professor at Leiden University; Dr. Mohammed Milad, Adjunct Professor at Harvard Medical School; and Franck Leprévost, Vice-President of University of Luxembourg.
The university’s achievements within Programme 5-100 and the concept of positioning SUSU as a university of digital transformations for the industry of the Big Ural region will be presented at the meeting of the International Scientific Council.
Members of the International Scientific Council will also receive official invitations to the Council meeting at SUSU planned for March 2019. Plans for the Council meeting in March of 2019 will include discussing the results achieved by the University’s laboratories founded as per recommendation by the members of the Council and functioning under the guidance of international researchers.
International research laboratories have been operating as part of Programme 5-100 for three years now. Among them are: Laboratory of Mechanics, Laser Processes, and Digital Production Technologies; Neurohepatology Laboratory; Laboratory for Migration Studies; Self-Validating Sensors, Systems, and Advanced Instrumentation Laboratory; Multiscale Modelling of Polyfunctional Compounds Laboratory; Molecular Electronics Laboratory; and Laboratory of Problem-Oriented Cloud Computing Environments.
Some of the laboratories served as the platform for forming promising research collaborations. For example, a collaborative project in engineering between Oxford University (represented by Oxford Professor Manus Patrick Henry), SUSU and Emerson is being developed at the Self-Validating Sensors, Systems, and Advanced Instrumentation Laboratory. The participants of this collaborative project have organised an academic exchange programme for post graduate students and post-doc students for the purpose of performing joint publications and projects in engineering.
