Ural Federal University: University Will Host Science Days

On February 7-16, Ural Federal University Science Days will be held at the university: a series of events is planned for students, young scientists, research and teaching staff, journalists and guests of the university. The program includes informational and educational seminars, lectures by Demidov Readings laureates, Science Slam and other special popular science events.

“We would like to congratulate and thank our scientists for their daily work, the results of which make our lives better: help maintain emotional and physical health, improve the environment, increase economic indicators of the country and the region, develop social skills, culture, and much, much more. We hope that the Science Days events will be interesting and useful for researchers, teachers, students, and specialists from other universities and information institutions of the Russian Federation. For example, at the end of one of the events – online seminars organized by the staff of the University Library – the listeners will be able to receive electronic certificates,” says Ural Federal University Vice-Rector for Science Aleksandr Germanenko.

The popularization of scientific research and the results of scientists’ work is no less important than scientific activities, said Aleksey Fayustov, Vice-Rector of the Ural Federal University for Information Policy.

“It is extremely important to tell what scientists do and how they change our lives for the better. After all, everything we use every day without even thinking about it – from smartphones, cars to traffic lights, clothes, coffee – is the result of scientists’ work. We try to remind people about this, to tell them about our researchers’ discoveries and to show science in a way understandable for a wide range of people. This is why, for example, during the Ural Federal University Science Days we are planning a press tour for journalists, to whom we will show a unique setup of astrophysicists. There are none of these in other regions of Russia, and none in the world. With its help, scientists create space conditions in the laboratory and get closer to unraveling how the Solar System was formed,” says Alexey Fayustov.
