Centre for Student Academic Development

Science Republic

The Science Republic was developed around the idea of organizing research through informal science communication, as well as a free and democratic system of cooperation and knowledge exchange. Authority and recognition in the Science Republic are based on the principle of mutual respect, which members of this 'invisible college' show towards each other’s opinions, arguments and proof, rather than regalia and status. It is not a community of equals, but rather a place where everyone can achieve a position of status according to their own efforts.

Funding Competition for HSE Events Involving Student Research, Popular Science and Education

If you’ve been dreaming of participating in an academic conference, a seminar, or a master class, or hearing a particular lecturer who interests you, and you don’t want to wait for someone else to organize the kind of academic event you envision, you now have the opportunity to organize the academic event yourself with financial and other forms of support from the Centre of Student Academic Development at HSE.

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.
