!The winners of the open international project competition for experimental research laboratories in quantum technologies and new functional materials have been announced. In accordance with the results of an evaluation conducted by international experts, experts of the HSE University Faculty of Physics, and the Competition Committee, two projects have been selected to receive support:

  • Laboratory of van der Waals Heterostructures (headed by Davit Ghazaryan);
  • Laboratory of Nanophotonics and Functional Materials (headed by Andrey Krasavin).

The National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) is pleased to announce an international competition for experimental research laboratories in breakthrough fields of contemporary physics, such as Quantum Technologies and New Functional Materials. Winners will have the opportunity to develop and lead new research laboratories based at the HSE Faculty of Physics.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Purpose of the Competition: to establish, support and develop relevant research areas, as well as world-class research schools at the HSE Faculty of Physics, as well as facilitate the development of modern infrastructure at the Faculty, which is a part of HSE active endeavours to bring its research in line with the global research processes.

Early career scholars focusing on quantum technologies and new functional materials, whose professional experience does not exceed 15 years after getting a Candidate of Sciences/PhD degree, are eligible to take part in the competition.

The competition is held with the aim of establishing new experimental research laboratories at HSE campuses in Moscow and St. Petersburg as per the established procedure.

The winning Moscow-based experimental research laboratory will become a subdivision of the HSE Faculty of Physics located on the premises of the Faculty of Physics at Bldg. 5, 21/4 Ul. Basmannaya, Moscow.

 


Each project supported in the framework of the competition shall be financed to cover:

 

the acquisition of research equipment in 2019-2020

(up to 150 million roubles)

salaries and other research-related expenses
  • up to 7 million roubles will be available in 2019
  • up to 13 million roubles per year will be available in 2020 – 2024

All expenses related to setting up and equipping the laboratory are not included in the above-mentioned budget. They will be additionally covered by the University. The Laboratory may continue working beyond 2024 subject to successful independent expert review undertaken every 5 years. The expert review of the Laboratory’s performance will be conducted every five years.
