Presidents of Russia and Kazakhstan defined the vector

During the XIV Interregional Cooperation Forum in Chelyabinsk Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbayev discussed the issues of bilateral collaboration in the sphere of education and science

The main subject of the Forum was the development of human capital. One of the most important topics discussed during the large-scale event was the collaboration between Russian and Kazakh universities in the sphere of research.

Vladimir Putin came forward with a proposal of establishing joint Russian-Kazakh research centers on the basis of the leading higher educational institutions of two regions. As an example the President cited the collaborative development of Ural Federal University with the partners from Kazakhstan in the sphere of reducing the energy intensity of production. He underlined that its large-scale implementation will allow not only to conserve energy resources, but as well to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which is of significant importance for a number of regions both in Kazakhstan and in Russia.

The President noted that Russia and Kazakhstan agreed to extend relations between regional universities and added that education is a key sphere of the human capital development.

Another important initiative discussed by the Presidents of two countries was the organization of joint Olympiads for school students of Russia and Kazakhstan in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This proposal was put forward by Nursultan Nazarbayev in the course of his opening speech at the Forum.

This initiative might open up new opportunities for the development of academic collaboration between two countries. Today 928 students from Kazakhstan study at Ural Federal University.

Glycine crystals can replace piezoelectric ceramics in biology and medicine
Crystals of glycine under a deformation can produce an electric charge considerably larger than conventional ceramics or a polymer. The scientists of Ural Federal University in collaboration with researchers from Limerick University (Ireland) and University of Aveiro (Portugal) measured piezoelectric coefficients in beta-glycine crystals for the first time and found that their values are comparable with the coefficients in barium titanate or lead zirconate titanate used in the manufacture of
Russian Scientists Make Electric-Hydrodynamic Heater More Efficient and Environm …
Scientists from Ural Federal University and Karaganda State Technical University simulated the work of an electric-hydrodynamic heater (EHDH) and proposed a method for its improvement. The resulting installation, which dimensions range from 0.8×1×1 m to 1.5×2×2.5 m, can be used in autonomous heating, hot water and air conditioning systems. The installation is environmentally friendly and easy to maintain; it allows consumers to set their own mode of operation. The results
