World leading experts in the field of computer modeling, together with NUST MISIS’s young scientists, recently convened to discuss the problems stemming from the calculations of complex structures and ways to solve these problems as part of the 3rd International Conference on Electronic Structure Theory for the Accelerated Development of Materials: A New Tool in Materials Science.

Mikhail Kovalchuk, President of NRC “Kurchatov Institute”: “MegaScience Projects are Attempts to Overcome Humanity’s Resource Crisis”

MegaScience projects are the scientific community’s attempt to respond to global challenges facing humanity. Only with the help of projects of a MegaScience level is it possible to overcome the resource crisis which otherwise will inevitably lead to global catastrophe. Mikhail Kovalchuk, President of the NRC “Kurchatov Institute” and a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, announced this thesis at the opening ceremony of the IV international conference “Crystal physics and the deformation behavior of promising materials”.
