  • ITMO Fellow Stanislav Baturin On Megascience Installations and Spinning Particles

    The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is the most powerful particle accelerator in the world. It allows researchers to study particle physics at the highest energy levels available to accelerators. Stanislav Baturin has been working in the field of particle physics at Russian and American universities for many years. Last year, he joined the ITMO Fellowship & Professorship program and the team of the university’s Faculty of Physics. At ITMO, Stanislav is collaborating with the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) located in Dubna, Moscow Oblast, on a project devoted to the physics of spinning particles. In March, the researcher will also teach an optional course on megascience-class installations. In this interview, he told us why researchers accelerate spinning particles and what to expect from his new course.  


  • German Week in St. Petersburg: Experts Discuss Science Communication and the Social Mission of Modern Science

    As part of the 16th German Week in St. Petersburg, ITMO University’s Science Communication and Outreach Office has organized an open discussion on the topic “The Changing Social Mission of Today’s Scientific Organizations”. Speakers from the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) discussed the work of scientific organizations in Russia and Germany and these organizations’ impact on social development.


  • Science Communicator Daria Dvorzhitskaya on How to Measure the Effectiveness of Science Pop Events

    What’s the key to measuring the effectiveness of how science-pop exhibitions are conducted? How to ensure the maximum involvement of the general public in science? These and other questions are in the focus of Daria Dvorzhitskaya, a member of ITMO’s Science Communication Center, who conducts her research on the topic using the events held by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) as the main example. Having graduated from the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, Daria has already accomplished several projects in Europe. ITMO.NEWS met with the researcher to learn about her future work at ITMO and how the experience she obtained at CERN can be applied in Russia.


  • Tours of CERN, or What to See at the Largest Collider Ever

    The Hadron Collider has long become more than just a major experimental facility, but a part of modern culture and a sort of Mecca for science-minded people, as well. Naturally, tours of CERN Laboratory where the collider is located are most popular.
