The winners of the competition for training under the program of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) "Natural Resources - Energy - Sustainability" have been announced at the St. Petersburg Mining University. The list includes 20 graduate students and young candidates of sciences from four universities - members of the Nedra consortium.
Representatives of USATU - graduate student Rustem Nagimov, candidates of sciences Andrey Medvedev and Tagir Muslimov also received grants for the implementation of research projects in Germany.
An authoritative jury headed by the head of the Moscow branch of DAAD Andreas Höshen assessed the quality of research work. The jury also included Carsten Drebenstedt and Berndt Mayer from the Freiberg Mining Academy, representatives of the St. Petersburg and Ufa universities.
The winners have the opportunity to study at various universities in Germany, including the technical universities of Dresden, Clausthal, Karlsruhe, the Wilhelm University of Westphalia, and others. The course, lasting from 3 to 6 months, starts in February.
“The quality of the applicants turned out to be very high, so the independent commission, which included Russian and German scientists, had to spend a lot of time to select the best of the best,” said Dr. Andreas Höschen. “I am very glad that so many talented students will soon come to Germany and will further improve their level of competence”.
The perspective and applied nature of research is one of the prerequisites for participation in the program. Motivation is just as important. All candidates had to convince the jury of their readiness to deal with the selected problems "seriously and for a long time."
