1. The UArctic Congress in 2022 will be held at Moscow State University. M.V. Lomonosov. The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a network of collaborating universities, colleges, research institutes and other organizations involved in education and research in and around the North. It was founded in 1998 at the initiative of the Arctic Council and officially began operations in 2001.



2. The project "Theoretical and experimental studies of the formation and evolution of extrasolar planetary systems and characteristics of exoplanets" was proposed by the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in cooperation with other institutes and universities. In total, 13 organizations are involved in the project. The project received a grant for research projects in the priority areas of scientific and technological development of Russia. The maximum grant amount was 300 million rubles.



3. Scientists from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), together with colleagues from the First Medical University. Pavlova, ITMO University and the University of Hamburg have improved the technology of genome editing. The research team has developed a polymeric carrier with a number of properties, into which several types of genetic material can be loaded. In the future, scientists plan to conduct an experiment with partners from Belgium - to test the developed technology in case of HIV disease.



4. Scientists from the Ural Federal University and the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences were the first to synthesize plasmonic copper nanoparticles in optical ceramics. The new material obtained can be used in quantum technologies and for creating a new generation of solid-state lasers, light-emitting diodes, photosensitive sensors, highly efficient radiation converters, optical sensors and nanophosphors.



5. Scientists from Tomsk State University(TSU), together with colleagues from Sweden and Finland, have developed a universal algorithm for calculating the photophysical characteristics of molecules. Thanks to this mathematical model, the creators of OLED technologies will be able to predict the properties of new organic light-emitting diodes without the need to synthesize them and spend money on expensive experiments.
