New trends and strategies in the economies of emerging markets discussed at RUDN

May 29-31, 2018, the international scientific and practical conference "New Trends, Strategies and Structural Changes in the Economy of Emerging Markets" was held at RUDN Economics faculty.

More than 180 researchers from 24 countries discussed more than 40 reports on new trends in the global economy, regional integration and global financial markets; BRICS: international instability, growth trajectories and structural transformations; innovative development, energy efficiency and digital economy; monetary policy, financial institutions and markets;  and methods of quantitative analysis of the economy.

The program of the conference also included a master class from the chief editors of high-ranking scientific journals - International Journal of Economic Policy in Emerging Economies (Scopus, London); "Bulletin of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia. Series of Economics "; International Journal of Emerging Markets (Scopus, Emerald), who gave practical recommendations on the formulation of research results.

The section of young researchers "World Trends and Prospects for the Development of Innovative Economy" brought together more than 50 students of the Economics faculty.

A compilation of extended abstracts of 84 reports selected by the Program is due to be published in English.

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
