OVER 358  APPLICATIONS WERE SUBMITTED FOR THE SIXTH “MEGAGRANT” COMPETITION 

14 July 2017 was the deadline for the sixth grant competition of the Government of the Russian Federation designed to support research projects implemented under the supervision of the leading scientists. The competition was announced on May 5,2017.
Grants of the Government of the Russian Federation in the amount of up to 90 million rubles each will be awarded on the competitive basis for conducting scientific research over 3 years (2018 – 2020).

Applications have been received from ~ 358 leading scientists from 41 countries of the world jointly with scientific and educational organisations in Russia: 280 applications came from institutions of higher learning, 78 - from research organizations.
116 applications were filed by scientists with Russian citizenship.
The majority of international applicants are scientists with the citizenship of the USA – 35 applications, Italy – 21 applications, France – 18 applications, Germany – 17 applications, Great Britain – 16 applications, India – 14, Australia – 11.

The research areas of the participants cover all 35 science fields set by the Grant Council for federal support. The majority of research projects proposed relate to the science fields of: Computer and Information Science (29), Physics (28), Material Technology (28), Biology (23), Earth Sciences and Related Environmental Sciences (20).

THE SIBERIAN RESEARCHERS DESIGN KEY DETAILS FOR LARGE HADRON COLLIDER

Scientists from the Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) have created a mounting fixture for the SciFi tracking detector to further upgrade the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The new fixture detail will be delivered to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) before the end of September.

The details will serve as a fixture for the moving elements of the SciFi tracking detector parts which will be assembled on the detecting complex LHCb (Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment). In the course of experiments, the detector must move with all the details being placed at strictly defined positions within the accuracy of a micron. To achieve such precision, the Tomsk researchers developed an overhead system, railing, and tray (slide), with which the detectors will move along the Collider.
LHCb is one of the main detectors at the Large Hadron Collider. For instance, it was involved in experiments on the asymmetry of matter and antimatter in interactions of b-quarks (the so-called "beautiful quarks").

Over the past two years, the TPU has become an active member of six large CERN collaborations and, additionally is a member of four important experiments. In particular, Tomsk physicists have joined the upgrading efforts for the LHC.
Another research group is working on enhancing the gas detectors and their introduction to the industry as a part of the RD51 collaboration. The third group of Tomsk Polytechnic University scientists has joined the work of the international research collaboration, NA64, on the super-proton synchrotron (SPS) which is exploring the dark matter.

THE UNIVERSITY OF THE ARCTIC (UArctic)

The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a cooperative network of universities, colleges, research institutes and other organizations concerned with education and research in and about the North.

UArctic builds and strengthens collective resources and collaborative infrastructure that enables member institutions to better serve their constituents and their regions. Through cooperation in education, research and outreach UArctic enhances human capacity in the North, promotes viable communities and sustainable economies, and forge global partnerships.

Members of UArctic: Canada, Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden,
United States.
UArctic also has members from outside the Arctic states, who nevertheless share the same commitment to promoting higher education and research in the Circumpolar North.

In September 2017 the University of the Arctic (UArctic) has entered into an official partnership with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) as a non-governmental organization.
