  • ITMO.EduStars Winner Vladimir Mitropov on Key Principles for Teaching

    The physicist Vladimir Mitropov graduated from ITMO with a PhD degree and worked for 20 years at a private company in the industrial refrigeration sector. However, he returned to the university as a lecturer, eventually winning last year’s ITMO.EduStars contest and nabbing an award for achievements in education. We asked him to share why understanding is more important than grades, how the cold helps museums stay moth-free, and what tasks thermodynamics solves nowadays.


  • Cryogenics and IT: ITMO Partners With Briskly

    On May 14, 2021, a delegation from ITMO University visited the Briskly Factory refrigeration machinery plant in Vyborg. During the meeting, Briskly founder Gleb Kharitonov and Igor Baranov, head of the School of Biotechnology and Cryogenic Systems, signed a collaboration agreement.


  • Create Artificial Cold and Learn to Apply Cryogenic Technologies: Master’s Studies at ITMO’s Faculty of Cryogenic Engineering

    As part of their Master’s studies at ITMO University, the students of the Faculty of Cryogenic Engineering explore everything connected to cold, liquefied gas production, microclimate and renewable energy sources. Specialists in this field design refrigeration, cryogenic and life support systems. The eight Master’s programs offered cover everything from ultra-low temperatures to technosphere safety. Learn more about the specialized studies from the program heads and graduates in this article by ITMO.NEWS.


  • ITMO University Researchers Test Innovative Pharmacy Refrigerator

    Recently, ITMO University ran tests of the new pharmacy refrigerator developed by the Italian company CAREL. As a result, ITMO researchers suggested a number of changes to the device’s settings so that it works more quietly and becomes more efficient. ITMO.NEWS spoke to the scientists and manufacturers to learn how to test refrigerators, and how pharmacy refrigerators differ from typical ones. 


  • Global Warming and Cold: How Refrigeration Industry Reacts to Contemporary Challenges

    Global warming is one of the most discussed topics of our time. According to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) estimates, if we don’t take any action now the average temperature around the globe will rise by 3,7–4,8°С. Production of harmful substances used in the refrigeration industry contributes to the existing environmental problems. ITMO University has recently hosted Global Warming: The Main Challenge for Refrigeration Industry, a conference where experts in the field got to discuss the prospects of the industry, the ways to solve the issue of ozone layer depletion and transition to more eco-friendly technologies. ITMO.NEWS asked the participants about the main trends in the industry and the key projects currently in development.
