The Global Energy Association and NUST MISIS hold negotiations on cooperation
The representatives of the Global Energy Association and the National University of Science and Technology (MISIS) held negotiations on cooperation, during which they identified promising areas for joint work.
Given the importance of partnership development in the energy sector and the achievement of new initiatives, the acting president of the Global Energy Association Alexander Ignatov met with the Scientific Director of the Engineering Center of High-complexity prototyping “Kinetics”, Professor Alexander Gromov and Director of the Young Science Development and Promotion Center Andrey Voronin. Discussing the options of partnership projects the parties agreed on the need to create favorable conditions for the development of scientific cooperation and the need for the exchange of expert data.
They also decided to provide an opportunity for the professorial staff of MISIS to join the nomination pool of the Global Energy Association with the right to nominate candidates for the Global Energy Prize. They considered the possibility to include experts of MISIS in the expert evaluation of nominating applications for the Prize.
A separate subject of the talks was the discussion of cooperation on the development of young professionals, creating an environment for them to exchange experience and knowledge, as well as the development of their self-presentation skills. In particular, they decided to organize an international event for young researchers in the Science Slam format, which will be held within the Global Energy Prize Laureates’ Week in October 2019. In the framework of a short "battle" young scientists (winners of the Global Energy Youth Program, developers from MISIS and its partner universities) will talk about their own research and development. Participants will have only 10 minutes to communicate their idea in an accessible, interesting and witty way. The best of them will be chosen by the audience with applause.
Recall that MISIS is one of the most dynamically developing scientific and educational centers of Russia, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Moscow Mining Academy in 2018, the successor of which it is. According to the leading educational ratings, the University is on the 76th place in the world in the direction of metallurgical engineering (ARWU rating), occupies a position in the group 201+ in the field of materials science and is in the top 30 best universities in the category of engineering — Mineral & Mining (QS rating). The University has more than 30 research laboratories and 3 world-class engineering centers, which employ leading Russian and world scientists. The University consists of 9 institutes and 6 branches — four are in Russia and two are abroad.
