The launch of the Russian Scientists Newsfeed — a new project based at the information agency TASS, which will create the infrastructure to distribute Russian science news abroad — went public on 8 February at a press conference dedicated to Russian Science Day.
The project has been initiated by three leading research universities — MIPT (the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology), NRI HSE (the National Research Institute Higher School of Economics) and Skoltech (Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology) — jointly with the Russian news agency, TASS. Russian and foreign journalists took part in a round table timed to coincide with Russian Science Day, joined by representatives from universities, the scientific community and government authorities connected with science and innovation: Russian Deputy Minister for Education and Science Alexander Povalko, the Rector of MIPT Nikolai Kudryavstev, the Director of the Kharkevich Institute (Institute for Information Transmission Problems, Russian Academy of Sciences) academic Alexander Kuleshov, the first Vice-Rector of NRI HSE Leonid Gokhberg and the Vice-Rector of MIPT for scientific work, Tagir Aushev.
As the Deputy Minister for Education and Science Alexander Povalko remarked, Russia today is one of the world leaders in science, and Russian scientists are definitely setting the world agenda, however, “we must make universities and the Russian scientific community speak out about their achievements, shaping a positive image of Russian science not only here, but also abroad.”
The aim of the new project is to promote a constant output of news about Russian scientists and their discoveries in the world media. Participants at the round table are proposing a shared, ambitious aim to their colleagues in science communications and the scientists of the leading universities in Russia — to vigorously promote their activities so that the oft-mentioned British scientists no longer have the field to themselves on the international news agenda.
