ITMO has overcome many challenges throughout its long history. We never stop and never forget our values and our mission. Today, we continue doing what we do best – developing science and education. Our shared responsibility right now is to support our students, providing them with opportunities for growth and self-fulfillment, maintaining our scientific partnerships and collaborations, and channeling our energy towards the future. It’s important to support our unique atmosphere of collaboration, compassion, and understanding. I am certain that we will all continue to make the world better with our work, take care of each other, and be the best team that I know.
