Scientific cooperation between the Research and Academic Center (RAC) and Eurofins (France)

RUDN Center for Collective Use (Research and Academic Center) hosted negotiations with Marcel Dumolin, Eurofins (Nantes, France).

Eurofins, founded in 1987, is currently the world's largest expert and analytical organization providing research services in agro-industrial, food, environmental and pharmaceutical fields. Today, Eurofins unites more than 400 laboratories in 44 countries in Europe, the Americas, the Asia-Pacific region, which annually carry out more than 350 million tests to study the safety, quality, composition, origin and authenticity of various plant, animal, biotechnological and chemical objects. The total financial performance of the company amounted to 3.7 billion euros in March 2018.

As a developer of the SNIF-NMR® method, Eurofins is currently a recognized international leader in the application of the nuclear magnetic resonance method in studies of the composition of various environmental objects.

At the negotiations the parties discussed issues of scientific cooperation in the food and pharmaceutical spheres and confirmed readiness for cooperation, in particular, participation of the specialists of the Center in the international conference of the FoodIntegrity program of the European Union, which will be held in Nantes, France in November 2018, and the Eurofins conference at RUDN. To ensure implementation of joint research projects and participation in EU grant programs, the parties are going to prepare a draft agreement on scientific and technical cooperation.

RUDN University research team of mathematicians suggested a new decision making algorithm

A research team from RUDN University developed an algorithm to help large groups of people make optimal decisions in a short time. They confirmed the efficiency of their model using the example of the market at which the outbreak of COVID-19 began. The model helped the administration and sellers agree on closing the market and reach a consensus about the sums of compensations in just three steps.

RUDN University physicist developed software solution to measure the black holes stability

Even if a black hole can be described with a mathematical model, it doesn’t mean it exists in reality. Some theoretical models are unstable: though they can be used to run mathematical calculations, from the point of view of physics they make no sense. A physicist from RUDN University developed an approach to finding such instability regions.
