National Science Day was celebrated in style, as our partners from the EFKO Group joined Belgorod State University for the launch of this year's Career Breakthrough program
Irina Tarasova and Angelica Kolbas, from EFKO's Innovation Research Centre, attended the launch with staff and students from the University, along with some high school students. Dr Alexander Zhikharev, Head of the Research Department at the University, gave a summary of 2018's program. He said that more than 5,500 high school students, undergraduates, postgraduates, and Junior Researchers took part in research, securing a large number of awards in more than 300 events, including the South-West Festival of Science, and the Russian-Uzbek Business Incubator. Ms Tarasova then spoke about life as a scientist at EFKO, and the Group's involvement with the Career Breakthrough program.
The launch came after a day that was filled with presentations and science seminars, and culminated in the prize-giving ceremony for winners of the 'Faces of Science' and 'Window on Science' competitions, sponsored by the Student Science Society.
