Novosibirsk state university is the unique place where education and science intersect. These two fields are inseparable here: they help the University to move forward by opening the incredible opportunities for work and further studies to NSU students and graduates. The university closely cooperates with the research institutes: more than a hundred of research areas developed all over the world are available for our students to explore. This allows NSU students to engage in the real, serious science from early years of their study, and to become part of the international scientific community.
Novosibirsk state university holds the leading positions in physics and natural sciences, being among the world’s best universities. The leading positions are ensured by participation in international collaborations, as well as by the wide recognition of research outcomes. For example, in 2015 the European center for nuclear research chose to build a supercollider using the model developed by the scientists working at the Institute of nuclear physics (Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences), who are also NSU professors and graduates.
Together with the traditional scientific disciplines, new areas are now being developed at NSU: engineering, instrumentation, astrophysics, and many more. The university now demonstrates the increasing amount of publications and citations in international journals; the number of graduate students and young faculty members is also growing. And, of course, the location of NSU in the academic town (Akademgorodok) provides the intellectual environment for professional development of every student, creates the ground for the emergence of new interdisciplinary research areas, and for integration of science with business and society.
Researchers at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (INP SB RAS) and NSU joint laboratory are continuing their work on the ATLAS Experiment to study the properties of the Higgs boson particle. ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS) is one of the two largest particle detector experiments to acquire and analyze data in collisions of ultra high-energy proton beams at the Large Hardon Collider (LHC). LHC is a particle accelerator located at the “European Organization for Nuclear Research’ (CERN) near Geneva, Switzerland.
NSU Economics Department graduates, Anna Simonenko and Sophia Makarevich conducted research on the phenomenon of commercial and non-commercial car sharing based on Delimobil and BlaBlaCar ride sharing services and their users in the Siberian Federal District.
From June 17 to 21 scientists from China, Japan, South Korea, India, Greece, the USA, and Russia attended the sixth Russian-Chinese Conference on Knot Theory and Related Issues at NSU.
This is an annual event hosted by the Geology and Geophysics Department. It was designed for people of all ages and professions so that anyone interested in geography can test their knowledge of geography. Everyone is welcome; an English version will be available for foreign participants.
Professor Anna Marie Masyuk, University of Edinburgh specialist in development and international cooperation, will conduct a workshop on effective communication and popularization of science.
