Scientists in Bryansk brush politics aside and seek foreign grants and sponsors

19 Aug '15
Universities in Bryansk, in Central Russia, continue cooperation with American and European scientists even in the face of political tensions. Professors and students keep participating in international projects and contests, regional portal Bryansku.ru reported.

For example, the Bryansk State Technical University website offers announcements of international competitions and projects. One is inviting researchers to take part in a collaborative effort between the U.S. and Russia.

CRDF Global, a U.S.-based fund for research, is ready to finance joint scientific work in nanotechnology for clean energy (including fuel cells, solar panels, biofuel development, reduction of carbon emissions in industry and transport, etc.) and in nanotechnology for agriculture (including pesticides, fertilizers, innovation for crop production and cattle breeding, etc.).

Another local university, Bryansk State University of Technology, is announcing a competition of innovative architectural projects which may enable Russian civil engineers and scientists to tour projects in Germany in partnership with two major European construction firms, Knauf and Rehau.
