International Students from Different Universities Discussed Student Science at Moscow Poly
Moscow Poly held an inter-university round table in “Developing Prospects for Student Science” that was commemorated to the Day of Russia Science that is celebrated in Russia on February 8. The event united students fr om HSE, MAI, MPEI, MosGU and Moscow Poly, as well as representatives of the MosStudNauka (Moscow Student Science).
The event was aimed at drawing students` attention to science.
“In particular, we would like to draw students` attention to scientific activity, exchange experience, discuss possible ways of helping talented young people join in science, and cooperation between the universities and student scientific communities”, - shared the organizing committee.
The participants of the round table discussed the role of scientific advisor, promoting science and much more.
According to the organizing committee, the task to engage all students into the discussion was achieved. The round table turned out to be a business-like event but also with a warm atmosphere. The students noted that there`re few events like that where they can bring up issues that they`re interested in, and most importantly discuss these issues not being embarrased by their Russian. Following the official part, the students went on to talk to each other and exchanged contacts for further communication.
Here are some of the ideas that students put forward:
- Hold exhibitions of students` diploma works for the technical field:
- Establish a school under Student Scientific Community
- Develop scientific volunteering
- Introduce rankings for the scientific-research activity to boost students` motivation
Among other, the following questions were voiced: How and wh ere can I publish scientific articles? How can student publish articles for free? Can University provide consultations regarding articles?
The participants of the round table, assistant professor Ilya Volnov and post-graduate Ahmad Hassan became the example of a perfect symbiosis between scientific advisor and a student, who shared their experience of working together.
