National R&D Contest

The main aim of the competition is to support Russian young and talented scientists, to attract them to the global scientific issues, to expand the knowledge of science as an important part of Russian society, to strengthen the educational and scientific connections among the scientists from different branches of science.

The competition's format is going to be on-site and off-site and  will be divided into three parts. First part will be held in an on-site manner, while the second one will be off-site. The third part of the competition is supposed to be in frames of National youth scientific forum “Science of the future – science of youth”. Distant participation in the third part of contest is not allowed.

For those participants, who will win the second part of the competition, the publication of thesis in conference writing collections will be provided.

The participants of the competition could be students or PhD students (aspirants) with the age below 32 years from Russian educational organizations of higher education.
