In December this year, a student Olympiad organized by the Russian Chemical Technical University in collaboration with leading universities in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, will take place.
The opening ceremony of the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development, proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly, took place at the Paris headquarters of UNESCO, on July 8, 2022.
As part of the International Year, many global events are planned. One of them will be the holding of the International Student Olympiad “Fundamental Sciences for Sustainable Development”, which is organized by the Russian Chemical Technical University DI. Mendeleev in cooperation with leading universities in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
“The initiative of the UN General Assembly is designed to show that only through a deep understanding of the comprehensive laws of nature and through cooperation can we achieve common global interests,” said Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Head of the UNESCO Chair on “Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development”, Prof. Natalia Tarasova.
“The inclusion of the Olympiad, initiated by Mendeleev University, in the official calendar of events of the International Year will contribute to deepening the cooperation of students interested in fundamental sciences.”
The Olympics will take place from October 20 to December 20, 2022. It is aimed at enhancing international cooperation, identifying and supporting the most talented, professionally trained and active students, increasing academic mobility and creating conditions for intellectual and creative communication in scientific and educational centers.
Outstanding scientists and scientists are invited to the jury. Among them is the Russian scientist and academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Yuri Oganesyan, who in November 2021 was awarded the first ever International UNESCO-Russia Prize named after D.I. Mendeleev for achievements in the field of fundamental sciences for sustainable development.
