MEPhI hosts Arctic roundtable discussion
January 30 – National Research Nuclear University MEPhI hosted a roundtable discussion dedicated to the joint arctic research of MEPhI and the Polar Expedition Kartesh project.
MEPhI researchers, students and staff members together with the Polar Expedition Kartesh project participants discussed the development of engineer and technical research in the arctic region. It has been noted that the significance of this work cannot be understated in terms of such programs as import substitution, arctic development and enhancement of the research footprint in the northern territories.
MEPhI researchers and students brought out several relevant engineer and technical research topics and solution projects that can be further implemented as part of interdisciplinary expeditions on board the R/V Kartesh.
The roundtable discussion concluded on the note that the expert roundtables should be formed and hosted to work on certain R&D tasks.
