A group of researchers from NUST MISIS in cooperation with their colleagues from Canada have developed an alloy with shape memory that has the same elasticity as bone tissue. Developed only from biocompatible metals — titanium, zirconium and niobium — due to its biochemical properties, the alloy can significantly extend the service life of medical implants.
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.
On October 27th, 2017, NUST MISIS presented the University`s development strategy to the Council of the Program for Competitiveness Enhancement of Leading Russian Universities among Global Research and Education Centers. NUST MISIS’s results for 2016 and 2017 greatly impressed the Council’s experts.
NUST MISIS has improved its ranking by 63 spots in the U.S. News Best Global Universities by Subject: materials science, taking 220th place among 1,250 universities ranked from 74 countries.
On October 25th, 2017, the 3rd meeting of the Public Council for Industrial Policy of CIS States took place. The agenda was a discussion of the series of actions needed to implement the cooperation agreement of CIS states in the mining-metallurgical industry. The meeting attracted representatives from the leading companies in the field of mining-metallurgy, as well as business representatives and delegates from the CIS states embassies. Some detailed issues of NUST MISIS’s cooperation with business-partners from Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Tajikistan were discussed.
The international team of biophysicists from NUST MISIS and seven other institutions have managed to answer some major questions that are being worked on by scientists around the world.
NUST MISIS has entered the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings by subject: engineering and technology, entering the group of
NUST MISIS has improved its positions in the QS Emerging Europe & Central Asia (EECA) Rankings, rising by 6 spots, from 63rd to 57th. For the fourth year in a row, the University has demonstrated positive growth, improving its position by 14 spots from 2014.
In general, Russian universities are not eager to participate in technological competitions as they are afraid to underperform in fields where they have notable financing, authority, and educational programs. Mikhail Filonov, the NUST MISIS Vice-Rector of Research & Development, expressed such an opinion, formed over years of observations, at the panel discussion “Prize competitions: A new path to open innovations”, held at the Open Innovations Forum 2017.
Alevtina, Chernikova, Rector of NUST MISIS, has become a member of the VEB Expert Council for
Lasers have become an integral part of modern technology and are able to penetrate into our life even deeper if scientists solve several key problems.
On October 3rd, 2017, NUST MISIS and CERN signed an agreement which assigns the specific duties of all the participants of the SHiP (Search for Hidden Particles) experiment.
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”.
Young scientists from NUST MISIS have developed a material with which scientists and doctors can create durable and easy-to-implement bone, joint, and muscle replacements.
