The Large Hadron Collider Physics (LHCP 2015) Conference

Svetlana Muratova
Head of Strategic Development Department, INNO-MIR

On Saturday 5 September 2015 the international large Hadron collider Physics (LHCP) conference has concluded in Saint Petersburg. The meeting was dedicated to the work of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other subdivisions of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN. More than three hundred specialists from thirty five different countries met in Saint Petersburg to discuss the latest theoretical and experimental results gained from the LHC.

The main focus of the LHCP 2015 conference, which was the third meeting of established scientists who specialized in the high-energy physics research, was the inspection of the perspectives of further investigations which became possible thanks to the results gained from the newly upgraded LHC. Aside from the main theme, the conference was also touching upon fundamental problems such as the formation of the universe, the nature of dark matter, the discovery of unknown particles and the application of newly acquired theoretical knowledge in medicine.
The conduction of the event on this cutting edge topic in Saint Petersburg shows, without a doubt, the key role that Russian scientists, engineers, and programmers play in the process of world science.
“The input of Russian scientists in the international project of the Large Hadron Collider in both the past and present is very large, the ideas and innovations which the Russians have brought as well as the fact that their scientific instruments do not possess any analogues,” pointed out the Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN Sergio Bertolucci.
Our company, “INNO-MIR”, which had the honor of being the coordinator for the LHCP 2015 project, also had the chance to “touch upon” the nuclear physics and received the recognition from the head council of CERN for the high level of organization and conduction of the meeting.
The fruitful work that the scientists have done during the conference in Saint Petersburg has once again confirmed that the achievements of nuclear physics already go beyond pure theory and find practical applications in medicine and other industries. The fundamental discoveries become the basis for all the new directions of interdisciplinary investigations which push the boundaries of knowledge and determine the perspectives of the development of humanity.

On 16 July, in Shanghai, “Russian Day”, a special event held within the Mobile World Congress Shanghai (MWC 2015) for the leading Russian IT companies in Russia, was a huge success. The visit from the Russian delegation in Shanghai from 14 - 16 of July was organised by the RVC in cooperation with RUSSOFT with support from the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation, the Russian Federation Trade Representative in China and the High Technology Industry Development Center “Torch”. The activities were coordinated by the Interregional Innovative Development Center INNO-MIR.

The trip of the Russian delegation to one of the largest forums in the sphere of mobile technologies has become one of the steps in the Russian IT-industry Export Support Programme, which is currently being conducted by RUSSOFT with support from the Russian Venture Company (RVC). During the three days, from 15 - 17 of July, the participants in the programme were able to acquaint themselves with the newest successes of the rapidly developing area of the industry, explore the world of the latest trends, products , services and understand the main aspect of the evolution of the global mobile ecosystem.“Participation in the Mobile Congress in Shanghai is incredibly interesting for Russian IT companies,” commented Valentin Makarov, President of RUSSOFT. “This interest is tied to the idea of breaking through into the Chinese and Southeast Asian markets as well as the possibility of finding strategic partnerships in China to create cooperative products for the global market.” The members of the Russian delegation who were present at the MWC 2015 were able to partake in every congress event, as well as join the specially organised seminar and contact exchange (“Russian Day”)...

Specialized sessions and post-conference workshops explored concrete research in the area of methods allowing more fully opening up creative potential in students and developing their artistic self.

One Does Not Need To Be A Genius To Be An Innovator

Anastasia Minets,
Head of International Projects of  INNO-MIR

Last week the Interregional Center of Innovation Development (INNO-MIR) took part in the Innovation Convention 2014 held in Brussels on 10-11 March 2014. The event, organized by the European Commission, initially focused on the European Union members. However, non-European participants could also learn much, not only from the content, but also from the way such a big international event was organized.
According the organizers, the event was intended to provide "a platform to debate and inform policies that will contribute towards the building of a research and innovation eco-system in Europe that can support this objective." The mission of the Convention – creation of a  innovation-friendly environment that promotes open communication, sharing of information and experience within European innovation community, politicians, representatives of the young generation and with other regions and countries interested in cooperation.
During the meetings and parallel sessions, a wide range of questions on innovation culture, education, political support of innovations, international cooperation were discussed. Also the winners of the 2014 EU Prize for Women Innovators were announced, and Barcelona was awarded with the European Capital of Innovation ("iCapital") prize.
The basic idea, which could become the slogan of the Convention: "Let's cooperate!" This idea sounded in all the discussed topics.

A Caring Approach to the World Around Us

Touch the world around you, the Nature, the people very gently. Take what you need in moderation. No more, no less.
Do not suck the life out of the world around you, for every day it lights the stars and sun up in the sky, paints the earth in the colour of summer, autumn, winter and spring. One moment the tree that you walk past every day suddenly comes to life, and you catch yourself thinking about greeting him, like an equal. You reach an understanding that 'the world is a reflection of oneself'...
Always remember that the world around you is your world, that it is different aspects of you, various realizations of who you are.
We bring to your attention a wonderful example of a caring attitude to the world - a film "Happy People" by Dmitry Vasjukov.
