Ms Polyakova emphasised that,
“The Scientific and innovative activities undertaken by the department in 2018 will take place in close cooperation with Institute of Geography and the Institute of Geosphere Dynamics of the Russian Academy of Sciences. New 'Centres for the Solution of Regional Environmental Problems' are also scheduled for this year.”
The meeting also discussed how our scientists might be of use to leading local businesses and how their research might be promoted in Russia and further afield. The Academic Council noted the achievements of the Department and other indicators of development, including research activity and international cooperation.
The Rector, Professor Oleg Polukhin stated that the clearest indication of the development of the University was reflected in our rise up the national and international rankings. He underlined the need for the creation of virtual reality classrooms, saying,
“We plan to open a virtual reality classroom with the most accurate simulation of disasters as possible. It has to be equipped with the state-of-the-art technology. Such classrooms are also necessary for students from the Institute of Medicine and the Institute of Law. Therefore we should discuss the possibility of creating a shared classroom.”Photo Gallery
