RUDN hosted the International Congress of Scientists – 2017, which united academics, researchers and professionals from Russia, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan, Iran, Australia and other countries who shared their research results. The congress was organized by RUDN and IPN Group association of scientists to help integrate Russian researchers in the international community. Participants worked in 3 sections, the largest being «International conference on engineering, technology and ecology», the 2 others – «International conference on economics, management and social sciences» and «International conference on fundamental and applied sciences».
It is important that the congress was attended not only by experienced Russian and international academics but young researchers as well. There had been dozens of applications and only 60 were chosen for the final collection of articles. Nur Kirabaev, RUDN Vice-Rector for research said that RUDN unites students from 154 countries and special attention is paid to interdisciplinary and applied works, medical mathematics, space flights modeling, comparative analysis of approaches to human rights protection and studying migration processes in different regions of the world.
Yakov Kuzyakov, a well-known soil scientist, a leading scientist at RUDN Agricultural and Technological Institute and a professor at the King Saud University, has been awarded the title of highly cited researcher in the field of agricultural sciences (according to Clarivate).
A RUDN chemist has obtained a new compound — a dumbbell-shaped phosphate-bridged molybdenum cluster. The cluster accelerates the reaction of the formation of sulfides from oxides and can be used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturing.
Mathematicians from RUDN University have studied the properties of compositional operators in spaces with mixed Lebesgue norms. It will help describe the diffusion of liquids in materials with cracks and in porous materials. Such spaces are also useful for obtaining estimates for solutions to the Navier-Stokes equation.
