CALL FOR PROPOSALS for Research Projects “Interdisciplinary Research”
is organized and conducted by Skoltech jointly with the Center Poncelet

The Call aims to promote scientific ideas in the area of mathematics, information technology theoretical and mathematical physics, create environment for extending research network and develop cooperation with Russian and international universities and research centers.

The Call includes two sections:

“International Research in Moscow” and “Domestic Research in Moscow”

  • In the framework of the program “International Research in Moscow” 3 highly qualified researchers from international universities and research centers are invited for a period up to 1 month.
  • In the framework of the program “Domestic Research in Moscow” 2 highly qualified researchers (junior and senior) from Russia (out of Moscow) are invited for a period from 6 months up to 1 year.

The winners of the Call will be supported with internationally competitive funding.

ELIGIBILITY

“International Research in Moscow” – for citizens of any country, being employed as academic staff in any research or educational institution outside the Russian Federation, engaging in research activities and majoring in physics, mathematics and information technology.

“Domestic Research in Moscow” – for citizens of the Russian Federation, being employed as academic staff in any research or educational institution in the Russian Federation, registered outside Moscow, engaging in research activities and majoring in physics, mathematics and information technology.

PRIORITY RESEARCH AREAS:

  • statistical physics and “soft matter”;
  • conformal field theory and integrable systems;
  • string theory;
  • complex systems science (networks, diagrams and their applications);
