The HSE Centre for Student Academic Development was established to support and advance student research that is conducted beyond HSE research centres and laboratories. The centre focuses on three main areas: popularizing science and research among students, providing support for student research projects, and fostering communication among young researchers at HSE and abroad.
The start of a new academic year is an excellent time to plan the next steps in your academic career.

Last year, a total of 2,196 papers were submitted to the SRPC, of which 435 were from external participants.
The fifth season of HSE Science Battles is currently underway, with the Sber office serving as a venue for another stage of the battle. Four speakers fought for a place in the finals by presenting their research in a ‘TED Talks’ format. The HSE News Service reports on highlights from the event, including how to explain to your grandmother that GMOs aren’t dangerous, what font you should use to develop your memory, and who ‘hate-watchers’ are.
Four young scientists competed in the second semi-final of the fifth season of HSE University Science Battles, which was held at HSE Cultural Centre.
