Professors of RUDN University Institute of Law participated in the annual European Environmental Legal Forum conference 2017, which was organized as a joint effort of the European Environmental Law Forum (EELF), the Nordic Environmental Law, Governance & Science Network (NELN+), the University of Copenhagen (Faculty of Science) and Aarhus University (School of Law). The Copenhagen conference was dedicated to the sustainable management of natural resources and the role of different legal approaches and instruments. Sustainable management of natural resources such as water, biodiversity and air remains a key concern at EU as well as national level.

The Forum was attended by young scientists and well-known all over the world scientists, specializing in national environmental law, European environmental law and international environmental law, such as:

Klaus Bosselmann, Professor of Law, University of Auckland and director of the New Zealand Centre for Environmental Law. 

 Hans Bruyninckx, Executive director of the European Environment Agency. 

 Ludwig Krämer, Director of Derecho y Medio Ambiente, Madrid and senior lawyer. Ludwig Krämer served as the European Commission's Chief Counsel on the environment, successively responsible of legal and enforcement issues, waste management and environmental sustainability.

Marie-Claire Cordonier Segger, Professor of law, University of Waterloo and Senior Director of Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL). 

 On August 31, within the framework of the section on Arctic problems, Ph.D., Associate Professor of RUDN University International Law Department Solntsev A.M . together with Ph.D., Senior Researcher of the Scientific Research Center for Ecological Safety at the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, A.V. Kodolova made a report «Legal problems of the restoration of disturbed territories in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation».

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

Dentists from RUDN University Presented a New Classification of Root Canal Shape Changes

Individual characteristics of the shape and cross-section of the root canal are one of the main issues for dentists. When treating a root canal, a doctor needs to properly clean it, fill it, and carry out a rebuilding procedure so that a canal is sealed. The first stage of endodontic treatment requires detailed knowledge of root canal anatomy. A team of dentists from RUDN University studied and classified various changes in root canal shapes. The new classification will help doctors avoid diagnostic errors, better select their tools, and treat patients more efficiently.

A chemist from RUDN developed a green catalyst for pharmaceutical and industrial chemistr

Many production facilities (e.g. plastic manufacturers, pharma companies, and others) use nanocatalysts that contain palladium—an expensive component that is not sustainably produced. A chemist from RUDN University found a way to reduce palladium consumption and to make its manufacture more eco-friendly. He developed a catalyst based on a substance that comes from plant waste. Using his invention, manufacturers could cut palladium consumption in half. Moreover, new catalysts can be reused multiple times without any decrease in efficiency.
