    The Centre for functional nanomaterials, as seen by European specialists

    A round table entitled "Functional nanomaterials" dedicated to the development and research on functional nanomaterials for various applied nanotechnologies – thin film solar modules, photovoltaics, micro- and nanoelectronics, energy saving technologies, and modern biocompatible materials – was held at IKBFU in the framework of the 5th Baltic Education Forum.

    A round table entitled "Functional nanomaterials" dedicated to the development and research on functional nanomaterials for various applied nanotechnologies – thin film solar modules, photovoltaics, micro- and nanoelectronics, energy saving technologies, and modern biocompatible materials – was held at IKBFU in the framework of the 5th Baltic Education Forum.

    The round table brought together top specialists in the field of nanomaterials from the leading European and Russian universities: Michael Farle, an eminent researcher in the field of nanomaterials and nanomagnetism, ex-vice rector of Duisburg-Essen University (Germany), Manuel Vázquez, the head of the Material Science Institute in Madrid (Spain), Prof. Pyotr Gaiduk of Belarus State university (Belarus), Prof. Nokolai Petrov of the Department of Magnetism of the Faculty of Physics of Moscow State University; Prof. Andrei Fedyanin from Moscow State University; and Dr. Andrei Zenkevich of National Nuclear Research University at Moscow Engineering Physics Institute. Dr. Alexandr Goikhman, the head of the Functional nanomaterials research and training centre, and Dr. Valeriya Rodionova, head of the research department of the Functional nanomaterials research and training centre of IKBFU, as well as undergraduate and graduate students of the Centre, also took part in the discussion.

    The round table addressed the topical issues relating to the determination of the major lines of research at the Functional nanomaterials centre, prospective cooperation between Western specialists in the field of nanotechnology and IKBFU, and the search for adequate and mutually beneficial training programmes in the field of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials for Russian and international students.

    The chair of the round table, Dr. Goikhman, the director of the Functional nanomaterials research and education centre at the IKBFU's Science Park, stressed the significance of expert evaluation by Western specialists, who commended the equipment of the Park and the proficiency of the Centre's young team. However, the guests believe, the university must become more integrated into international scientific community and take a more active part in international conferences and meetings.

    The German and Spanish professors stressed the importance and need to give younger specialists an opportunity to study abroad and write and defend theses under the supervision of experts from leading European universities. Michael Farle and Manuel Vázquez expressed willingness to take part in the organisation of advanced training courses for the specialists of the IKBFU's Functional nanotechnologies centre. The round table resulted in an agreement with the European scholars regarding their participation in the coordination of the Centre's research activity. An important step forward, according to Dr. Goikhman, will be the first Rigid Body Physics Summer School scheduled to be open at IKBFU in 2012. Leading Russian and European specialists are expected to take part in the Summer school.

    Moreover, the experts suggested formulating the lines of research for the next ten years, as well as setting chief targets, which will make it possible to focus on concrete development tasks. Dr. Goikhman identified the four major targets of the Centre development: "We will continue to conduct research in the field of solar power, nanoelectronics, and energy saving and medical material science".
