Year of Science and Technology at Moscow Poly
Vladimir Putin declared 2021 to be Year of Science and Technology. Here are the main events of the year.
This year was very eventful for new discoveries and great achievements at Moscow Poly – a participant of the “Priority 2030” federal program. It was all about the science - new and perspective projects, support of talented young scientists, new agreements on cooperation with partners. The most important thing is that our students were involved in these events. Our students develop race cars, motorcycles and work at laboratories starting from the first academic year.
Moscow Poly became the winner of the strategic academic leadership program “Priority 2030”. Our university specializes on the key issues of automotive, energy and engineering industry and realizes 3 strategic projects of green economy: “Available Electric Car”, “New Hydrogen Energetics”, “Adaptive Optics for Laser Technologies of the Future”. A special laboratory for green car manufacturing will be created by the autumn of 2022 on the basis of Moscow Poly and in cooperation with “Autotor Holding”.
Smart Shuttle Driverless Electric Car
During the opening of the VII International Military-Technical Forum “Army-2021” specialists of Moscow Poly presented Smart Shuttle – a driverless vehicle for the parking zone, equipped with automated control systems. It can be used as an excursion bus for driving across predetermined routes, saved in the system.
V.E. Fortov Grant Contest
V.E. Fortov grant contest was established this year. Young members of academic and pedagogic staff of the university are able to receive support for their projects. Research and Technology Board of the university chose 11 best projects of the young scientists under the age of 30. More than 7.7 million rubles will be spent in 2022 for the grant support of contest winners. The contest is to become an annual event as a part of Moscow Poly development program.
Participation in Key Events of Year of Science and Technology
Researchers of Moscow Poly took part in the “Technosreda” festival and in the “Vuzpromexpo” exhibition, where they presented latest developments of university’s Engineering Development Center, including Smart Shuttle driverless electric car.
Young scientists of Moscow Poly also visited Young Scientists Congress in Sochi. Sessions and round-table discussion were organized during the congress.
“Mind Games” reality show became a final event of the year. Valeria Makarova, an active member of Moscow Poly Media Centre, took the second place together with her colleagues from other universities during the finals. Students became the main characters of journalistic investigations, thrilling materials and columns on science and technology for youth.
Researches of Young Scientists
A group of young scientists from Moscow Poly received three million rubles as a grant from the Russian Science Foundation for the studies on solving fundamental scientific issue of studying and development of the thermal memory. In a result of researchers’ work, a hardware and software system, based on metallization systems, will be developed in order to create prototype memory units. The research team was led by Prof. Arkadyi Skvortsov, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics.
A research team of Materials Mechanical Tests Laboratory (“Dynamics, Machinery Integrity and Strength of Materials” department) found the way to decrease the cost of new strong materials production. These materials are applied in additive technologies and during the production of micro- and nanosystems and simultaneous promotion of their reliance.
Researchers of Moscow Poly will develop a new optic system of digital holograms registration. A scanning interferometer (an interferometer with a movable mirror) is a main element of this scheme. The research is aimed at the development of the original device for the movement and precise positioning of movable mirror. Sergei Kalenkov, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, became a head of the “Optic Systems of Hyperspectral Holograms Registration” program.
Victory in the NTI Contest
Moscow Poly won the grant contest for the best infrastructure centers of the National Technological Initiative of Russia in the AutoNet nomination. The contest was held by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation and ANO “NTI Platform”. NTI Centre of Moscow Poly will receive grant support during the first three years of their programs realization: 15 million rubles for the first year, 60 million rubles for the second year and 75 million rubles for the third year.
“Autonet” infrastructure center will be developed on the basis of the Faculty of Transport. Its functions will include maintaining activities of industrial community in the direction of the “Autonet” market, including participation in the processes of international organizations, activities in social networks.
