"Youth contacts are an important tool in Russian-German relations," - Angela Dolzhikova, RUDN Vice-Rector for Continuing Education
How to maintain contacts between states when the geopolitical background is not favorable? How can young people contribute to the development of external relations at the local and national levels? What best practices help achieve this goal in Russia and Germany? The participants of the conference “Russian-German Relations: The Role of Youth Dialogue” tried to answer these and other questions.

Participants exchanged experiences in the areas of developing social responsibility among youth, sports, science and education. Representatives of Russian and German youth associations, civil society, executive authorities, education and sports gathered at the site.

The report was made RUDN Vice-Rector for continuing education, Angela Dolzhikova. In her speech, the Vice-Rector spoke about close contacts between RUDN and 15 German universities in the formats of academic and student exchange, as well as holding joint events. The coming event will be the international conference “Global Challenges of Migration 2020”, where the co-organizer is the rep office of the Hanns Seidel Foundation in Russia.

The University was also represented at the conference by RUDN Law Institute students studying German. They shared their impressions and experience of participating in Erasmus + internships and discussed the possibility of participating in the “Forge of projects” of the German youth association “Deutsche Jugend in Europa”.

The main result of the conference was the exchange of best practices and raising awareness of joint projects, scholarship programs and summer schools of such youth organizations as the German Youth Association, the National Council of Youth and Children's Associations of Russia, “Deutsche Jugend in Europa” association, the German-Russian Youth Parliament Alumni Association and the “German sports youth” association.

The co-organizers of the event were the German Youth Association and the branch of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in Russia at the site of the German- Russian House.

The General Theory of Particle Mechanics. A Special Course: results of more than 30-year research are published

In XVII century, summarizing results of numerous experiments Newton formulated the basic laws of classical mechanics. At the very beginning of XX century, analyzing laws of electrodynamics, Einstein proposed equations of motion of a very fast particle; it was the origin of relativistic mechanics. Decades later, summarizing empiric facts on micro-scales, theoreticians invented quantum mechanics with Schrodinger equation as its conventional version. These three branches of mechanics are in fact very different theories – in math sense as well as in comprehension, – and we have accustomed to learn and use them as separate informational units. However, Alexander Yefremov, a mathematician from RUDN University, claims that not all this is so plain. In his recent book “The General Theory of Particle Mechanics: A Special Course” issued by Cambridge Scholars Publishing (UK) in 2019, he tries to convince us that only one law of mechanics rules the Nature, the other three being its special manifestations.
