It’s become fashionable to take an interest in science and research, and there are lots of researchers and academics at HSE who do in addition to carrying out research are gifted enough to be able to explain it in an engaging way to other people. You can meet them and learn about the latest research breakthroughs at the NAUKA 0+ festival, which gets underway in Moscow on October 9. Here’s an outline of what HSE offers as part of NAUKA 0+.
The Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics will showcase the latest technological innovations, applications, interactive electronic systems, and robotics. You can learn more about developments from the Department for Computer Engineering and the Department of Electrical Engineering at The Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics, the Laboratory for Space Vehicles and Systems’ Functional Safety and enjoy taking a look at virtual reality gloves, smart Thinger interactive devices, a system for urban smartphone charging, a robotic tank, Arduino robots, and more. Visitors will also be able to view a space equipment demonstration by the company Sputnix, where HSE Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics graduate Anton Sivkov works, and intelligent tech activities like puzzles, games and logic problems.
The exhibition runs from October 9-11 at Expocenter (Moscow), Krasnopresenskaya Nab. 14, Pavillion 2, Halls 4,5,6. 10 am – 6 pm.
HSE professors and experts have prepared seven lectures (in Russian) on various subjects that profoundly impact all of us, and society as a whole. The lectures are to be given by Vasily Klucharev, Mikhail Blinkin, Alexander Chulok, Ruslan Saygitov and others, and will touch on issues that are of paramount importance today, and which will create links to the future: urban development, neurotechnology, and other subjects.
The lectures will run on October 10-11, at Shuvalov building, MSU, Lomonosovsky Prospekt 27, K 4. Entry – free of charge.
HSE’s Psychology Faculty is hosting Welcome Lab Day, when the School of Psychology laboratories open their doors to the public. Psychology is one of today’s fastest-growing areas of research, and has an impact on all areas of life. Welcome Lab Day opens this up to the general public, and people will have the opportunity to learn more about how to manage their moods, develop their abilities, take decisions, and even be happy – by taking a truly scientific approach to these issues.
Answers to these key questions can be found in research by members of HSE’s Psychology Department. This event takes place twice a year, and young researchers are invited to take a closer look at psychology, see the technology used in this research, and get a sense of what it is like to be a research psychologist for a while.
Welcome Lab Day at HSE’s School of Psychology will take place on October 17 from 3 pm to 5 pm
Register for the event (the registration form is in Russian – ask your buddy to help you register if you wish to attend)
One day during the festival will give visitors the chance to become students at the Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics. The Institute’s Open Day will open up classes and labs at the institute, give people the chance to interact with researchers and people carrying out experiments, and to learn about the educational and research programmes. The event includes master classes in robotics and 3D printing, lectures, demonstrations about research developments, physical and chemical experiments.
Science Day at HSE’s Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics takes place on November 14, starting at 11 am
Entry is free of charge
