The Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) has published a list of winners of the competition, titled “The Best Projects of Fundamental Research by Young Post-Graduate Scholars”. Eight applications from post-graduate students of Perm State University received support from the Foundation Jury – each of them will receive RUB 1 200 000 ($16 000) for their research.
“It should be noted that this year the RFBR approved all the applications sent by Perm State University. Not only this is a good result, but also an indicator of our young scholars’ progress. Today, PSU graduate students conduct relevant research in photonics, law, chemistry, biology, and experimental physics. A considerable amount of competing research in various fields once again proves that Perm State is moving in the right direction, pushing the science far both on local and national levels,”comments Sergey Pyankov, Vice-Rector for Research and Innovation, PSU
