Steep and Thorny Way of a Scientist in Russia

Steep and Thorny Way of a Scientist in Russia

Prof. Valentine Ananikov participated in the plenary panel discussion HR Challenge for the Society held in the framework of VII Russian National Congress of Young Scientists and Specialists on November 30 – December 1 2016 in MEPhI. He presented a succinct description of the young researcher’s carrier in a Russian university and pinpointed key pitfalls on this way. He also touched upon a sensitive issue of picking up candidates for professor and senior executive positions, which is normally done on a basis of two indices – Hirsch number and impact factor; however, it is actually impossible to gain a high h-index if papers are published in Russian journals because there is none with a high impact factor. The situation is ridiculous and to fix it we need own internal expert community whose ranking will be underpinned by actual results.

The Congress will become a communication hub for young top managers of R&D and commercial projects, laboratories and research teams and representatives of development institutes and authorities.

Professor Mario Pargliaro Lecturing at Zelinsky Institute Prof Mario Pagliaro (Palermo Italy) gave two talks on June 8th and 9th.
Selective In-Situ Metal Azide Reactions Alexey Sukhorukov, N. D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry, Moscow, Russia, and colleagues studied the selective reactions of in-situ generated metal azides on N,N-bis(oxy)enamines. By combining readily generated bis(oxy)enamine substrates with sodium azide and one of a variety of metal salts (including Mg, Cu, Zn, Co, and Ni), the researchers showed that the metal cation selectively alters the mechanism to favor the formation of specific organoazide products.
On February 1st, Prof. Gleb Sukhorukov from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, gave a lecture “Remote Controlled Delivery Nanosystems” at ZIOC.
“We can record up to one thousand spectra per day” Director of Zelinsky Institute about Devising New Molecules
Zelinsky Institute hosted the Conference  “Basic Chemical Research of 21st Century” The Conference “Basic Chemical Research of 21st Century” supported by the Russian Science Foundation was held on November 20 – 24 2016 at ZOIC RAS.
