Modern Laboratories are Being Established in Tomsk Polytechnic University under the Supervision of Top-Ranking Scientists

28 January 2012 13:00

World top-ranking physicists Hans-Michael Kröning from Germany and Torstein Sigfusson from Iceland are establishing modern laboratories in Tomsk Polytechnic University /TPU/.

According to the correspondent of TASS in the University, the German scientist will train students in the laboratory in the area of the enhancement of nondestructive testing (NDT) methods for different materials. And the Icelandic researcher will open a laboratory for hydrogen energy fundamental research. Modern scientific schools are expected to be developed within TPU due to this project.

Within the next three years the work of the laboratories will be financed by the RF Government. It has allocated 150 million rubles from the federal budget for each of them. According to Alexander Gromov, Vice Rector for Scientific and Innovation Activity of TPU, the money was received “since the University won the grant competition of the Government of the Russian Federation designed to support scientific research projects implemented under the supervision of leading scientists.”

Mr. Kröning will deliver his first lecture to students today. “We hope that this powerful top-ranking European scientist will create a modern scientific school around himself which will prepare a lot of young researchers corresponding to modern European trends,” Gromov said.  “We badly need young specialists and I am sure that due to the advance European practice we will be able to make a qualitative leap forward,”- the researcher added.    

Tomsk Polytechnic University was among the winners of the Russian competition for Innovative programs within the framework of the national projects “Education”. Since 2007 the first in Russia Center preparing professional elite in the area of IT systems has been functioning in TPU. Microsoft Innovation Center functions within the Center of Cybernetics of the University.  The budget of TPU innovative programs amounts to one billion rubles.
