OSU NAMED AFTER I.S. TURGENEV ENTERED THE TOP 20 RUSSIAN UNIVERSITIES ACCORDING TO GREEN METRIC 2021 RANKING
OSU named after I.S. Turgenev, according to the results of the international ranking of environmental sustainability of universities UI GreenMetric 2021 took the 395th position in the world and 14th in Russia. The list of the “greenest” universities was published on December 14. There are 956 universities from 80 countries, including 54 universities from Russia. The goal of the UI GreenMetric — assess universities according to campus development ecological sustainability and the energy-saving model of university management.
UI GreenMetric is the first and most influential international ranking that annually evaluates and publishes the results of the "sustainable development" of modern universities. Nowadays, more and more often at the highest levels there is a talk about replacing hydrocarbon fuels with new types of energy, about “green construction”, about reducing the “carbon footprint”, about preserving the ecosystem for future generations. Such a narrative clearly indicates that the world is on the verge of global changes, and universities are assigned the role of “scientific locomotives” that determine the vector of further development.
Commitment to the policy of "sustainable development" requires the university to combine educational, scientific, personnel, social, economic and other activities. This year, work in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic was added to this issue. Despite the fact that our University is traditionally included in the top 20 Russian universities in this Ranking, there is a lot of work ahead. Very soon, the University will start building a modern campus that meets all the requirements of "green building", setting a new trend in the construction of social facilities in the region. The implementation of such a large-scale project will significantly strengthen our position in the ranking and make a significant contribution to the preservation of the environment.
STUDENTS OF OSU LAW INSTITUTE VISITED THE CAPITAL OF RUSSIA

On November, 30 the meeting of the first-year students of OSU Law Institute with the President of the Orel regional Chamber of notaries Elvira Psareva was held as a part of preparation for the celebration of the Lawyer's Day.
From, as they say "first hands" students have learned about what notary's work is, about a long and thorny way of notaries in formation of the world system of law machinery. Step by step, according to all the parameters, the Guest of Honor spoke about the innovations that had occurred in the field of notarial activity. The students were shown, on the basis of practical examples, the future ways of development of notarial system, namely the digitalization and mobility. In today's realities, the notary can help with various legal issues even at a distance. It also came as a great surprise to the students who attended this meeting that in today's world, digital testimony can now also be considered in court proceedings. And testimony about illegal actions on the network is now considered a screenshot, confirming the accusation.
At the end of the meeting Elvira Semyonovna expressed hope that those who came to the meeting would continue their way and the reward would be an opportunity to serve people by defending their rights in the high rank of notary public.
The second meeting of OSU Law students was held with the Commissioner on protection of the rights of businessmen in Orel Region Evgeny Lykin. Business and State, controlled inspections and procurement, severity of the Russian laws - these and other problems that Russian business faces every hour, and perhaps every minute were discussed at a meeting.
A brief but rich history of the Institute of the Commissioner in Russia, the formation and constant development of the regulatory framework, the prospects of theoretical search, all this was told by the man with whose direct participation this institute was created in Orel region.
And the meeting ended with several concrete examples, when it was through the efforts of the Commissioner that the legal problems of small business representatives were solved, in other words, the fate of entrepreneurs did not go downhill.
Probably, the high purpose of the legal profession lies in the possibility of such service to people and the law.
We congratulate the staff of the Law Institute, as well as all those who bear this difficult title of "Lawyer", on their professional holiday and wish success in the affairs of justice!

LIFE FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS: OSU THEOLOGY STUDENTS VISITING THE MEMORIAL WORKROOM OF FAMOUS OREL ARTIST G.V.DYSHLENKO
On October 13, teachers of the Theology, Religious Studies and Cultural Aspects of National Security Department and first-year theology students visited the memorial workroom of the Orel artist, member of the Union of Artists of the USSR G.V. Dyshlenko. Students and teachers were introduced to the life and work of Georgy Vasilyevich by his son Viktor Dyshlenko, who continued the family traditions of serving art.
The creative atmosphere continues to be felt in the workroom, the furniture, books and favorite things of Georgy Vasilyevich are carefully preserved. But the main value is the artist's paintings, of which about 50 are represented here. These are mainly landscapes, genre canvases, portraits and still lifes painted by G.V. Dyshlenko in different years of his life and reflecting his life path.
Through the paintings of Georgy Vasilyevich, the first-year students met a man who sought to convey the essence of his time to others by means of art. Students were able to come into contact with the ruthlessness and senselessness of war, love for the Motherland and the simple beauty of Russian nature, the warmth of relationships with loved ones. G.V. Dyshlenko lived by these ideas both as a teacher and as the Dean of the Art and Graphic Faculty of our University, as well as as a public figure for the restoration of the historical memory of Orel Region.
The theology students visit to the museum-workroom of G.V. Dyshlenko left a vivid impression and became another step towards realizing the need for value orientations in their future professional activities.

OREL STATE UNIVERSITY LAUNCHED A UNIQUE EDUCATIONAL PROJECT "IT-FAMILY"
Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev together with Rostelecom company launched a unique educational project "IT-Family", which will allow people of different generations to master information technologies. The first training session was held on October 7, 2021.
The project is aimed at team teaching of internet literacy to senior people together with their grandchildren. The first trainees were 12 families from the city of Orel. For five weeks, they will learn how online services and social networks work, how to generate secure passwords and protect themselves from cyber-fraudsters, and how to master the public services portal and online shopping. The classes will take place at the Information and Communication Technology Workshops at Orel State University twice a week. The educational project will be finished with an exam, according to the results of which the pairs of participants winning three first places will receive awards from Rostelecom company.
Pavel Zelenin, Director of Rostelecom's branch in the Bryansk and Orel regions:
"Educating the older generation is not a new topic for us. For more than ten years, Rostelecom has been teaching the basics of computer literacy to pensioners on its own premises. Today we are moving to a new level and bringing generations together with the help of information technology. It is no secret that the elderly have difficulties communicating with Internet technologies, while young people can easily use various gadgets. Therefore, grandchildren will share their IT knowledge at our project, while the older generation will share their wisdom and life experience".
Alexander Fedotov, Rector of Orel State University:
"We are grateful to Rostelecom for the offer to take part in the IT-Family project. The resources of our University make it possible to conduct educational programmes in various IT fields - from system administration to robotics. This is a unique educational experience for us. The teachers specifically for the project have developed an additional general education programme aimed specifically at cooperative learning. We hope that the project will help elderly people first and foremost to overcome their fear of information technology and, with the support of their kin and beloved grandchildren, to master the space of the Internet. And the younger generation will find common interests with their grandparents.
Svetlana Stepanova, Director of the Coordination Centre "Young Professionals" :
"Rostelecom annually supports our events held as part of the Young Professionals national project (championships and demonstration exams according to Worldskills standards). Rostelecom's proposal to organise an IT-Family project on the basis of the University was another round of development for us in the sphere of additional educational programmes for different categories of students. The idea of uniting older and younger generations in the context of rapidly developing digital technologies is acquiring a new fundamental importance today. A team of teachers from VET Faculty headed by the head of the project "Centre of preparation of high-skilled specialists in sphere of information and communication technologies" Alexander Tyuhta enthusiastically supported the initiative of Coordination Centre, which is proved by carefully developed curriculum and skillfully selected teaching materials".
Orel joins the list of cities where the "IT-Family" project is being implemented. Earlier training of family teams started in Tver, Tambov, Lipetsk, Vladimir, Ryazan and Tula. Other Central Russian cities will join the project in the near future.

Students of OSU Law Institute got acquainted with the history of Orel city
Everything in the world has its beginning. For a person, this is his or her birthday, but a city have such a day too. How to find out exactly when, on what day a particular city was founded, especially if its history goes back centuries, and written evidence speaks, at best, about the year of its origin?
These and other questions of Orel city history received answers to the first and second year students of the Law Institute, studying in the field of International and Comparative Law. The excursion began at the site of city foundation, where a fortress was built almost five centuries ago by Russian servicemen, and inside, in honor of the Nativity of the Most Holy Theotokos, the first, then still wooden, church was erected.
During the excavations, rare luck smiled at the archaeologists, who on a huge cape had the opportunity to lay only one excavation and it exactly fell on the corner of a wooden frame with burials oriented to the cardinal points around it. The students also learned that there is a movement in Orel to celebrate, along with the Day of Liberation on August 5, the foundation day of Orel city - September 21.
At the same time, the construction (repair) of the Red Bridge gave rise to a lot of talk that Orel city is much older. The students also discussed these versions with the Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor, Head of the Department of Theory and History of State and Law Dmitry Vladimirovich Aronov.
The excursion continued on Lenin Street (Bolkhovskaya street before the 1919), where pictures of the past century appeared behind the usual facades: notary offices that competed with one another, the Jordan hotel which has nothing to do with the Jordan River (Jordan was the name of the hotel owners), the oldest city's pharmacy, the former institute for noble maidens - the pre-war alma mater of Orel higher education; the first trams on the city streets and in Russia. The excursion ended in a place created by our contemporaries, in the Victory Park.
OREL STATE UNIVERSITY NAMED AFTER I.S. TURGENEV WILL RECEIVE THE BASIC PART OF THE "PRIORITY 2030" PROGRAM GRANT
On September 27, the Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, Valery Falkov, announced the competition committee work results for the selection of Russian universities for the program of state support "Priority 2030". Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev was included in the list of program participants who will receive the basic part of the grant in the amount of 100 million rubles.
“For each university, the most careful decisions were made. We did not assess current achievements or reputational and scientific groundwork. We assessed the program, its feasibility, the rector and the team, and, of course, correlated it with the national development goals of our country and the regional agenda. This list of 106 universities is not a choice of the Ministry, the decision was made by a balanced commission. We understand that not all universities will be satisfied with the results of the program. But Priority 2030 is designed in such a way that next year an application for participation can be submitted again," Valery Falkov noted.
As a reminder, the team of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev presented its program on September 18, 2021, at the "Boiling Point - Commune" of NUST MISIS on the fifth defense day of the development programs of universities - contestants of the federal program "Priority-2030". The Governor of Orel Region Andrey Klychkov and State Duma Deputy Olga Pilipenko supported the University development program and became defense participants as part of a delegation from the University.
The goal of the Priority 2030 program is to form a wide group of universities that will become leaders in creating new scientific knowledge, technologies and developments for implementation in the Russian economy and social sphere.
A CAREER SPRINT FOR BEGINNERS. FIRST MEETING

This event opened a cycle of career meetings for OSU students called "Career Sprint for Beginners".
The idea behind such short sprint meetings with employers is to create a career environment that will allow students, starting from the first year, to get acquainted with companies that have vacancies for beginners.
During the meeting, students learned to understand what competencies this or that vacancy develops, what is the threshold for entering the profession, how students should prepare for the start of a career and what is important for the employer. What are the real amounts of wages, correlated them with their expectations. We tried to look for interesting work, internship, industrial practice, part-time work in our and in other regions.
"Career sprint for beginners" with an employer - these are the answers to these and other questions of students.
Zhanna Klimova: “It is no coincidence that we started this project with Telecontact company. The company is known to many and, importantly, it regularly has part-time job vacancies for students. In Telekontact company personal and over-professional qualities of a student are important, which is very important for the first job. The Career Sprint for Beginners project is a long-term project that we plan to carry out during this year. The goal is to give each student the uniqueness of building his career and educational trajectory."
The project "Career Sprint for Beginners" also plans a number of trainings from Telekontact employees on topics that students themselves choose by voting in the "Your Career in the Region" group on VKontakte platform and an excursion to the company, which will take place on September 30.
We invite everyone to join the "Career Strint for Beginners"! All the details in the VKontakte group.

“In late September, early October, we plan to hold several more similar meetings with freshmen. In the coming days, we will represent KVN at the All-Russian Student Forum of the National League of Student Clubs. We want to recruit 8-10 young teams in OSU named after I.S. Turgenev during the season. If in a year there are 4-5 teams left, it will be great! We understand how difficult it is to play KVN, so we set the guys up for hard work. But this work has its pleasant sides, these are trips to different cities for games and festivals, love and recognition of the audience.
We are well prepared for the new season. Now two administrators, three editors, six curators are at work at the OSU KVN League, all of them are successful KVN players. We will support the students, we want to identify and raise a talented generation of young people with a good sense of humor in our University.
I would like to wish the young teams perseverance, because victories come after many losses."
THE OPENING OF A JOINT LABORATORY OF OREL STATE UNIVERSITY AND VEDAPROJECT COMPANY TOOK PLACE
In the understanding of the Flagship University the training of highly qualified specialists presupposes the maximum involvement of employers and industrial partners in the educational process. Thus, it turns out not only to carry out high-quality training of students at the request of the enterprise, but also to satisfy the "staff shortage" of the region. One of such forms of cooperation between the University and the enterprise is the creation of joint laboratories on the basis of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev, which are aimed at solving real practical problems.
So, in building No. 11 today, the opening ceremony of the Laboratory for the development of a trusted digital platform using home equipment, created in conjunction with VedaProject LLC, took place. The cooperation of the University with the Company, as well as the development of the future Laboratory, originates in 2019 from the “Human Resources for the Digital Industry” competition, in which VedaProject was a partner.
Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Olga Pilipenko, Vice-Rector for Development Alexander Pilipenko, Head of the Department of Industry and Trade of Orel Region Maxim Petrov, Deputy General Director of VedaProject LLC Ivan Titov, Director of the Department of Unmanned Aviation Systems of National research center "Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky" Roman Naumov, as well as representatives of the Federal state government military educational institution of higher education "The Academy of the Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation", students participating in the competition "Personnel for the digital industry" and other guests.
"I am very pleased that today we have gathered at our University and are taking another step towards the relationship between science, business and education. The opening of the Laboratory is a systematic event that allows us to realize our main goal - to train high-quality specialists who are really in demand. And the initiative of our partner, VedaProject company, suggests that we have nevertheless learned to work with enterprises in such a way that our students are in demand in the professions of the future today.
<...> When we started the project ["Personnel for the digital industry" - ed.], we wanted to see if the system of end-to-end preparation of schoolchildren, students, masters, teachers for the competencies of the future could work. And then, in the course of its development, we analyzed labor competencies, various professional standards. At the same time, we set ourselves a new task for us - mastering neural networks and controlling drones. They did not exist within the University at that time," Olga Pilipenko greeted the audience.
The head of Orel Region Department of Industry and Trade , Maxim Petrov, noted that the University has ceased to be a "closed" community and is successfully integrating into the economy and the creation of economic values for enterprises, which is confirmed by the opening of the joint Laboratory.
Maxim Petrov also presented the participants of the project with gratitude from the Department of Industry and Trade for their great contribution to the creation of a practice-oriented training system in Orel region.
Success of work with OSU named after I.S. Turgenev was also noted by Ivan Titov, Deputy General Director of VedaProekt LLC:
"… We see that both teachers and students are working, they are really interested in it. Now we have another task - to keep hold of these staff trained for us".
The head of the laboratory Nikolai Markin, Acting Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Engineering:
"The initial idea of this project was to train groups of students (and quick preparation) in those areas that we did not have in the region: control of drones, work with neural networks and the design of electronic means. But even then we set a goal that in a few years we should form such project designing groups from trained students together with the enterprises participating in the project, which will solve the problems of a particular enterprise. And with the prospect for further employment there.
We have been working towards this goal for two years. And today we managed to take the first step: now a design and engineering group of students participating in the "Personnel for the digital industry"competition has been created. They are hired by VedaProekt and solve real engineering problems."
The participants of the event were able to see this with their own eyes after an excursion within the walls of the Laboratory, which, although officially opened on this day, has been functioning for two months already. So far, there are three students of the Flagship University working here, who took part in the "Personnel for the digital industry" competition. Each of them was assigned different tasks: studying the board on MXI controllers and installing the domestic Astra Linux operating system on it, working with neuroprocessors of the Russian Scientific and Technical Center "Module", as well as debugging the operation of control units with Astra Linux and neuroprocessors.
In addition, for the guests of the event, an excursions to the educational laboratories of the Department of Automated Control Systems and Cybernetics and the production line of the Engineering Center for Digital Environment Technologies to ensure integrated security: telecommunications, communications and energy efficiency were conducted.

A MEETING ON THE PREPARATION OF THE HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM FOR THE NEW ACADEMIC YEAR WAS HELD AT THE GOVERNMENT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko noted that from September 1, training will begin in 710 universities. Most of them will start working in a traditional, pre-pandemic format, using remote technologies if necessary.
“In total, about 4.22 million students will start their studies. Of these, about 1.2 million are first year students. Last year, this figure was less - 1, 125 million enrolled. This year, the number of budget-funded places was increased in the most priority areas: by 11,382 places in IT, by 5,975 in engineering, and medical specialties by 6,057 places, ”said Dmitry Chernyshenko.
Valery Falkov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, noted the high competition in admission that has developed this year, and thanked the leading universities, which accepted for training at their own expense the applicants-winners of the Olympiads and 100-point students who did not have enough budget places. During the meeting, the importance of vaccinating students was also discussed.
“With regard to access to infrastructure, laboratories, workshops and attending lectures - we did a lot of work with rectors, repeatedly told and explained that regardless of vaccination, students have the right to attend classes, go to gyms and swimming pools and, most importantly, move in in the hostel, "- said the head of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia.
Valery Falkov also said that on behalf of the operational headquarters of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia, the algorithm for organizing the work in relation to foreign students has been finalized. Now students from other countries will be able to come to Russia to study, regardless of the resumption of flights. To this end, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia is working together with the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation and Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova. Foreigners who have a compulsory medical insurance policy will be able to vaccinate according to the general rules of any of the registered vaccines, the rest will have access to Sputnik Light.
“For foreigners, the vaccination rules are the same as for Russian students: minors are not vaccinated, adults - only with voluntary consent,” stressed Valery Falkov.
SPORT AT OREL STATE UNIVERSITY RANKS HIGH!
Student health in safe hands
Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev is equipped with everything necessary for the comprehensive development of the student's personality, including not only resources for obtaining a quality education, but also creative and sports self-realization. The same goes for the health of students.
So, in the structure of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev includes the Student Polyclinic - a multidisciplinary medical and preventive institution. This is a unique structural unit of the University, which has no analogues either in the region or in the country as a whole. And there are a number of reasons for this.
Student Polyclinic of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev is not included in the system of compulsory health insurance - all costs for the maintenance, examination and medical examinations are borne by the University.
Thanks to this, the Polyclinic solves several problems of medical support of students at once:
- As a rule, most students become such at seventeen years old. This means that they still belong to children's clinics, but upon reaching the age of eighteen they must go to "adult" ones. The Student Polyclinic eliminates these difficulties.
- A large number of foreign students enter the University every year. Naturally, they cannot have a compulsory medical insurance policy, according to which Russian polyclinics are accepted. In this case, the Student Clinic also assumes the obligation to accompany such students during the period of treatment or prevention.
- Territorial affiliation is another problem that Studpoliklinic eliminates. Nonresident students often have difficulty getting attached to city polyclinics. For example, when changing dorms, they also have to change the medical institution.
Student Polyclinic of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev includes five geographically separate objects, (the main building of the Clinic is located at Krasin Street, 3); seventy employees, of which forty-five are medical workers. The Polyclinic conducts medical supervision of the health of all students, teachers and employees of the University.
The Student Polyclinic operates on the basis of a license issued for an indefinite period by the administration of Roszdravnadzor in the Orel region in a large number of areas:
functional diagnostics and so on.
To provide such a wide range of services, the Polyclinic has high-tech equipment. For example, a unique functional device - videoencelography, which allows early diagnosis and clarification of diagnoses associated with diseases of the brain. The structure also includes a hydropathic facility - bathrooms, water massage, Charcot's shower. This type of physical procedure functions on the territory of Orel and the region in almost a single copy - and everything is in the Flagship University. Territorial polyclinics have lost this equipment and no longer provide such services.
The Student Polyclinic also carries out a lot of work on the prevention of airborne infections, which helps prevent outbreaks in the hostels of the University. Also, during the spread of the new coronavirus infection, the Student Clinic carried out work on the prevention, monitoring and treatment of patients with this disease. For foreign students, an observatory was deployed on the basis of the Polyclinic, and when crossing the state border of the Russian Federation from places of permanent residence, they were required to spend two weeks in quarantine, followed by testing. Currently, the Student Polyclinic is carrying out a vaccination of the population against coronavirus, as well as comprehensive rehabilitation of citizens who have already been ill.

Samedova Oksana Vladislavovna - head of the reference and bibliographic services sector
This year in January, for the first time, the project "Leafing through the books about Orel" was presented to users of social networks interested in the history of their region - this is the history of Orel region, the history of buildings and streets, it is a quiet provincial life and talented fellow countrymen. The message contains not only interesting information, but also a question, which can be answered by looking at the Local Lore Foundation of our Scientific Library. Several issues were devoted to the students of the Orel male gymnasium - Pyotr Arkadyevich Stolypin. And ... an outstanding Russian surgeon of the 19th century, lived and worked in Orel, his name was included in encyclopedic dictionaries, his bust was installed at Moscow University. What is the name of an outstanding fellow countryman - the question of the project "Leafing through the books about Orel" for August.
The project "Leafing through the books about Orel" is presented in VK social media or on the Scientific Library page, in the category "for colleagues".
The project "Pages of the Great War" is dedicated to the Great Patriotic War and consists of three sections - these are the events that took place in the city of Orel, the Book of Memory of Orel Region and the Immortal Regiment of Orel State Pedagogical Institute. The idea of the project was born in the year of the 80th anniversary of the University in order to immortalize the names of teachers and students who stood up to defend their native land, native institute.

TOURIST CLUB OF OREL STATE UNIVERSITY WENT ON A HIKE IN THE ARKHYZ MOUNTAIN REGION
The tourist club of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev under the guidance of Stanislav Makhov went on a mountain hike in the Western Caucasus. The hike lasted 9 days: from 21 to 29 June 2021. During this time, the guys visited the Sofia Waterfalls, the Sofia Saddle Pass, the Ak-Airy Waterfalls and the Sofia Lakes (2880 m). They also did the rope course, self-defense and survival lessons.
The team consisted of 38 people! (16 people from Orel (10 of which from OSU), 2 from Volgograd, 1 from Kazan, 4 from Saratov (students from Saratov State University named after N.G. Chernyshevsky), 15 from Moscow (students from National University of Oil and Gas "Gubkin University" (Gubkin University)).
After arriving at the Taulu Meadow, the participants went to the base camp, which was located in the Sofia Valley at the bottom of the Sofia Mountain, where instructors were waiting for them. The total distance was 10 km to the base camp. The road was not difficult, but with a long ascent. The camp was set at an altitude of 1980 m above sea level.
Due to the large number of participants, the team was divided into 2 subgroups for the ascents of the Sofia Saddle and the Sofia Waterfalls.
The complexity of the routes increased steadily. The first was the ascent to the Sofia Waterfalls, built to test each participant's own strength and hardiness. Despite the small climb and crossings through the rapid mountain rivers, the guys walked along all five waterfalls and returned to the camp contentedly.
The next check was the Sofia Saddle (2558 m). For the Moscow subgroup, the route to the Sofia Saddle lay along the Cheget-Chat Ridge. The Orel group started the route along the Cheget-Chat Ridge, went down a little and finished the ascent with a steep ascent. In one direction, the distance was 5 km long ascent. A beautiful view opened up on the Sofia Saddle: on the one hand is the valley of the Kizgych River, the Uzhum Ridge, two peaks of the Main Caucasus Ridge: the peaks of Karakaya and Marukhbashi; on the other hand is the snowy glaciers of the Sofia Mountain and the Sofia Valley itself in all its glory. On the Saddle, the team had a snack and a rest. The participants went down another road, along mountain streams flowing from the peak of Sofia.
On the rest days instructors Stanislav Makhov, Alexey Timashov and Vitaly Vilkov did a rope course and showed how to knit survival knots of varying difficulty, pulled the ropes and "imitated" the crossing. Many guys walked through it and made sure of the reliability of structure. Self-defense and survival lessons were also held. In practice, the instructors showed the basic skills of defense and attack. Many participants were interested in them, and in the future they plan to visit self-defense trainings held at Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev.

OSU STUDENT PRESENTED RESEARCH RESULTS AT THE CONFERENCE OF THE BIG GEOGRAPHICAL FESTIVAL
Anna Morozenko, a 4th year student of the Department of Geography, Ecology and General Biology of the Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology presented the results of research within the framework of the grant project “Spatiotemporal regularities of the erosional transformation of slope landscapesinthe basin of the upper Oka River against the background of climatic changes in the late 20th - early 21thc centuries". The scientific and practical conference was held online in April 2021 at Saint Petersburg State University as part of the XVIIth Great Geographical Festival.
In 2021, the festival had 150 participants. Orel State University, the Department of Geography, Ecology and General Biology were represented at the conference by 5 participants.
As a result of the research at the experimental site inthe basin of the River Sukhaia Orlitca, it was found that for a more accurate calculation of soil losses due to erosion, it is necessary to take into account the fallout from Chernobyl in 1986. The fallout accounting was restored based on the results of the analysis of soil samples.
Reconstruction of radioactive fallout in 1986 for each of the agricultural fields will improve the accuracy of calculations of the amount of soil lost due to erosion.
Precision farming has been actively used in Europe and the USA for more than 20 years. The main efforts of farmers are aimed at working out the fertilizer application system. According to preliminary calculations of German specialists, the use of precision farming technologies will increase the yield by 30% while saving funds in the amount of 100-150 € / ha.
The Big Geographical Festival is one of the largest platforms for the exchange of scientific experience, as well as making friends and like-minded persons among geographers in Russia and neighboring countries.
The Big Geographical Festival was organized in 2004 at the initiative of students and postgraduates of the Faculty of Geography and Geoecology of Saint Petersburg State University and the Faculty of Geography of Moscow State University. Its goal is to create conditions for creative and intellectual communication of young people and establishing contacts between students, postgraduates and young scientists from various cities of Russia, CIS countries and countries of the far abroad.
Annually within the framework of the festival are held:
• conferences of students, postgraduates and young scientists;
• round tables and master classes;
• photo competition/photo exhibition and much more.
THE RESULTS OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL PRACTICE AT THE FACULTY OF HISTORY
The time has come to sum up the results of the educational archaeological practice of the Faculty of History, which took place on the basis of the Seyminsko-Sudzhinskaya archaeological expedition of the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the Bolshesoldatsky District of the Kursk Region in the small village Dalny.
The purpose of the practice was to study the monuments of Roman Empire and the era of the Great Migration (Chernyakhov archaeological culture) of the III-IV centuries A.D.
Definitive aspects of the practice are:
- the participation in it of first and second year historian students. This circumstance is due to the fact that the leadership of the faculty and the university decided to organize last year's practice, which was suspended due to covid restrictions and was postponed to the current summer;
- the implementation of work on two modules: a fieldonein the Kursk region with direct work at the excavation site and a stationary one in Orel for a cameral processing of artifacts found during excavations on the Red Bridge;
- the combination of work at the excavation site with listening to a cycle of lectures on research topics by Oleg Radyush, a researcher at the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences;
- the participation in the expedition of representatives of the volunteer movement "Volunteers of Archeology", created by the administration of the Faculty of History this spring on the basis of the Joint Council of StudentsofOSU named after I.S. Turgenev;
- the visit of the Kursk State Museum of Archeology.
On the basis of a theoretical course, which Oleg Radyush has been teaching at the faculty for several years, historian students demonstrated high-quality practical skills in archaeological research: they determined the boundaries ofthevillage, laid pits, processed an excavation, worked on a cameral processing of artifacts.
In addition to direct archaeological research, students learned how to equip their expeditionary life: set up tents, equip places for rest, cook food in a field camp. After the excavation work, which began and ended early enough due to the July heat, there was a lot of time for rest and leisure.
The final touch of the practice was the celebration of the Dedication of Students to Archeologists, which took place at the excavation site against the backdrop of a beautiful local sunset.
As a result of the efforts of the university and faculty administration, which truly didn’t formally react to the problem of the formation of professional competencies, the practice was carried out in this format in such a difficult epidemiological situation.
The staff of the department and students express their deep gratitude to the rector of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev Alexander Fedotov, the vice-rector for Organizational and Methodological Activities Galina Zomiteva, the head of the production practiceofOSU Nina Chernikova, the dean of the Faculty of History Irina Voronkova, the associate professor of the Department of General History and Regional Studies Evgeniya Tatarenkova, the chairman of the primary trade union organization of students Roman Dashkevich, the head of the department for educational work and youth projects Natalia Vasilyeva, the head of the Archeology Volunteers Unit Oleg Musalitin, as well as the head Oleg Radyusha, his team for the opportunity to introduce students to archaeological science!

Young researchers presented the topics of new publications. For his part, Professor Thierry Ponchon confirmed his readiness for further joint work to participate in publishing projects, including as a member of the editorial board of the scientific journal "Sociolinguistics", the founders of which are the Institute of Linguistics of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Oryol State University named after I.S. Turgenev.
Anna Popova, Doctor of Philology, Professor of the Department of Russian Language, was invited as the special guest of the final online meeting. She made a presentation on the recently published lexicographic work "Dictionary of computer-gaming jargon: lexical and phraseological presentation of realities associated with computer technology" (Moscow, St. Petersburg: Center for Humanitarian Initiatives, 2021. - 618 p.).
Anna Popova's dictionary, created within the framework of the linguistic component of the project "Language, folklore, ethnography of cities and villages", numbers 3 781 units and represents a relatively recently formed conceptual sphere: computer games, role-playing games based on computer games, computer software and hardware, etc. A significant part of the dictionary is recorded and / or interpreted for the first time. The corpus of the dictionary allows you to identify and study the special aspects of slang lexemes and phraseological units that are new to the Russian language: phonetic, accentological, spelling, morphemic, derivational and phraseological, grammatical, semantic, etymological, functional aspects.
The presentation of a new lexicographic publication inspired young scientists to further work on dictionaries developed in accordance with the selected topics of dissertation researches.

our student Victor Lisitskiy is the winner of the "UMNIK-2020" grant
4th year student of group 71-MX of OSU Polytechnic Institute - Victor Lisitsky became the winner of the "UMNIK-2020" grant.
The Governor of Orel region Andrey Klychkov presented the student with a Gratitude for the creation of a device for the treatment of cranial vault bones deformities in children.
Victor's project is related to the development of a cranial orthosis with an integrated mechatronic control and management module, which allows creating a controlled therapeutic effort depending on the type of disease and the stage of treatment of cranial deformities.
Victor shared his opinion on this competition:
“Even before the outbreak of the pandemic, my scientific advisor offered to participate in the “UMNIK” contest with his term (and future graduation) project under the primary title “Development of a cranial orthosis with adaptive regulation of the intensity of therapeutic action” (later the name was slightly changed). I agreed as everything was going to take place in summer, when there is more free time. But then a pandemic began and the competition process was postponed to autumn. I already began to refuse, because I could not combine work, study and participation in the competition. But my scientific supervisor was confident in the project and I began to attend classes and meetings held within the framework of the "UMNIK" competition within the walls of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev. I was not sure in the success of my project, despite the fact that there was direct communication with the leading Russian neurosurgeon Leonid Satanin. I prepared and performed the project in November 2020. I made a presentation and forgot.
And on April 5 this year, I received a letter that my aplication was awarded for funding. In June, I was presented with a Gratitude from the Governor of Orel region for the achievements in scientific activity.
Now active work continues on a project with a science-intensive name "Development of a cranial orthosis with adaptive regulation of the intensity of therapeutic effects.
And, to sum it up, I want to say that in the "UMNIK" competition the winner is not the clever man(UMNIK in Russian), but his idea!"
OSU named after I.S.Turgenev presentation at the international educational exhibitions
The beginning of the admissions campaign at our University coincided with a unique opportunity to present Orel State University at the sites of several countries at once: Armenia, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
On June 23, 2021, an online presentation of the universities of the Belgorod, Orel and Tula regions in the above states took place. Experts predict an increase in the inflow of applicants from the post-Soviet space. This is also facilitated by the policy of our country, which this year, for the first time in many years, has increased the federally funded quotas for talented youth interested in studying in Russia.
Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev was presented on the online platforms by the Director of the International Relations Department Svetlana Aronova.
According to the rules for conducting educational presentations, classical universities are beginning to position not only the university itsef, but also the region as a whole. We focused on combining the fundamental nature of education and the flexibility of educational policy, which allowed more than one generation of graduates to build successful careers. At the exhibition, this fact gave us a clear advantage over other universities in Orel region and Russia as a whole.
The materials of the presentation will be available on the Rossotrudnichestvo website in Armenia, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, as well as sent to all potential applicants who have shown interest in this event.

How do students of osu named after I. S. Turgenev develop tourism in Orel?
Department of Tourism and Hospitality of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev participates in a joint project with the Tourist Cluster of Orel Region and the Center named "My Business". The goal of the project is to attract the attention of citizens to the history, culture, as well as the tourist infrastructure and sights of their hometown.
As part of the project, information desks were installed in the city of Orel, which are located at the Railway Station, Aleksandrovsky Bridge and near Trade Center GRINN.
Currently, the Tourist Cluster is faced with the task of acquainting residents and visitors of the region with Visit-orel portal, which is an aggregator of offers from companies developing local tourism and hospitality. The ultimate goal is to make the Tourist Cluster portal the main source of interesting and useful cultural and entertainment information about Orel and the region.
Students of the "Tourism" training direction work at the information desks as part of their service and technological practice. For them, this is not only a great opportunity to work out communication skills, as well as skills in promoting the tourism brand of Orel region, but also a way to collect material for research work.
“We try to take part in all events aimed at increasing interest in our city. And, of course, we supported the idea of promoting Visit-orel portal - this allows students to plunge into the profession, gain experience in communicating with people, working with Internet resource, and study the technologies of organizing domestic tourism. In addition, they investigate the impressions of site visitors, and then they will analyze the data obtained,” commented Mikhail Shmarkov, Head of Department of Tourism and Hospitality, on the contribution of the Flagship University to the project.
Associate Professor of the Department of Tourism and Hospitality Kozlova Veronika Aleksandrovna and Head of the Department Shmarkov Mikhail Sergeevich are coordinators of the project from OSU named after I.S. Turgenev.

The education of undergraduate students from the Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology and specialists in the field of food technology from plant and animal origin is coming to an end. A specific feature of these educational programs is close cooperation with food production enterprises.
The Scientific and Educational Center "Biryuch-NT"(EFKO Group of Companies, Belgorod Region, Alekseevka) is a partner of OSU, who, after preliminary professional and psychological examination of final year students of the Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology, invited on an excursion to the company those who apply for vacant positions of engineering technologists.
What did the students know about EFKO before the excursion?
The EFKO Group of Companies is a large Russian manufacturer of special-purpose fats used in the confectionery, bakery and other food industries. The head office is located in Voronezh, representative offices are in Moscow, Alekseevka and Taman, production locations are in the Belgorod, Voronezh, Moscow and Sverdlovsk regions, in the Krasnodar Territory and Kazakhstan.

• Biotechnology of oils and fats.
• Innovations in oilseed processing.
• Vegetarian meat.
• Rare sugars.
• Sweet proteins.
• Fermentation of oil seed coarse meals.
• Genetics and embryology.
What awaited the students in reality?
“The first thing that attracts me is the aesthetics of the design of the territory of the center with a total area of 90 hectares. This impression tuned in to the perception of something unusual, new and previously unknown. The first impression wasn't deceptive. We were shown about eight laboratories, which was only part of the center. These laboratories develop innovative technologies for the production of "sweet proteins", specific action enzymes, milk substitutes, vegetarian meat, feed for cattle of high productivity. The developed technologies have the industrial approbation and are evaluated in terms of physicochemical, microbiological, organoleptic and safety indicators. These researches are carried out on modern laboratory equipment made in Germany, USA and Japan. All laboratories are certified. In this center, much attention is paid to the spare time of employees, so on the territory there is a polyclinic, cottages for workers, a hostel for visitors, the Temple of St. Sergius of Radonezh, a network of restaurants, sports grounds according to interests, its own school and a kindergarten. We would very much like such companies to be as many as possible on the territory of Russia! Here you want to work, create and improve yourself", - shared Valentina Rumyantseva, Professor of the Department of Food Technology and Organization of Catering Industrys, her impressions.
The Center of Assistance to Graduate Employability of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev also considers this format of career guidance counseling, aimed at preparing students for a successful career start in high-tech companies, to be effective.

VIth REGIONAL INTERUNIVERSITY OLYMPIAD "TECHNOLOGIES AND SERVICE"
In the Fundamental Library of the OSU named after I.S. Turgenev hosted the VIth Regional Interuniversity Student Olympiad "Technologies and Service" dedicated to the Day of Slavic Writing System and Culture. The organizer of the Olympiad is the Department of Professional Training and Business of the Faculty of Technology, Entrepreneurship and Service.
“This is a very significant event for us, because, first of all, it is associated with the development of professional competencies among our students, since we traditionally graduate teachers for institutions of secondary vocational education and, among other things, we implement the profile “Food and consumer product manufacturing". These students learn not only how to teach, but it is very important for them to know the technology of food handling, preparation and decoration of dishes and table setting. Therefore, today we are holding this Olympiad for the sixth time. We have formed a certain professional community, in which we constantly maintain contact, and where our students undergo practical training and train their professional skills,” said Elena Kuznetsova, head of the Department of Professional Training and Business.
The word "olympiad" in the context of an educational institution is usually associated with writing tasks. However, in the case of the Olympiad "Technologies and Service", everything is quite the opposite. Here the participants compete in the preparation and serving of dishes.
Six teams competed for the title of the best:
● "Khutoryanka", OSU named after I.S. Turgenev
● "Lubomir", Bryansk State Agrarian University;
● "League of Cooks", Orel Technological College;
● "Rusichi", Orel Technical Secondary School of Agricultural Technologies and Transport;
● "PiR", Orel Restoration and Construction College;
● "Cooks of the Future", Orel Restoration and Construction College.
The topic of the Olympiad was the traditions of Slavic cuisine. In the first stage, "Stock-in-trade", students presented recipes and table setting in the best traditions of the Slavic peoples. The jury had to evaluate the theatrical performance of the participants, their appearance, the originality and design of the table decoration, the complexity of cooking, and in the process of tasting to appraise the combination and harmony of all components of the dishes, the organoleptic indicators of the quality of the dishes.
“I would like especially to note the team "Lubomir" of the Bryansk State Agrarian University, which showed in a theatrical performance the life of the Russian family in the Bryansk region.

This task wasn't easy, each team had to prepare a dish corresponding to the topic of the competition in real time from the provided set of vegetables, to take a photo of it and post it on Instagram. The goal is to get the most votes and win the "Audience Choice Award".
Achievements of the participants of the Olympiad were evaluated by a qualified jury from among the team leaders.

the XXII Vitaly Churkin Moscow International Model UN
The XXII Vitaly Churkin Moscow International Model UN was held at MGIMO University. Al-Ofairi Ala Fuad Ahmed, a 5th year student of Orel State University Medical Institute, took part in it.
Model UN is an exciting role-play in the course of which university and high school students model the work of the United Nations. Its participants – delegates, observers, chairs and experts – act as official representatives of the UN member States and international organisations which come to the conference to debate agenda items. As Model participants, delegates express not their personal point of view but the official position of the country they represent. The purpose of each Committee is to adopt a resolution on the agenda. The implementation of that purpose is possible only if a compromise is reached between the interests of all states represented in the body.
This year, the Model was dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the Russian Association for the promotion of the United Nations, as well as the 75th anniversary of the UN.
C-MIMUN is supported by the Russian Peace Foundation, the A.M.Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund, as well as grants of the Committee for Public Relations and Youth Policy of the city of Moscow for socially oriented NGOs allocated by the Mayor of Moscow.
The agenda of the Moscow International Model UN comprises a number of issues of major importance to the world community related to development, security, and overcoming social and financial problems ( the problem of migration, space development, ecology, health). Over 700 delegates from 40 countries worked in 13 committees in the six official languages of the United Nations.
Our student, Al-Ofairi Ala, from the beautiful eastern country of Yemen, represented Austria and was a member of the Committee on Sustainable Development (UNIDO). Participants discussed the most important challenges facing the peoples of Africa and worked out possible solutions for their development and providing them with employment opportunities and dignified life.

ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE,
AND ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN MERELY PLAYERS…
The popular quotation about the fact that "all the world's a stage..." is traditionally attributed to the great Shakespeare, who is difficult to deny both insight and wit. And today we can only guess what lines everliving classic author would have produce, when he saw in a simple, provincial cozy Orel theater a great mixture of cultures, languages of peoples, traditions.
Students of OSU Law Institute, with the strong support of the administrator of "Russian Style" theatre Klyueva Lyudmila Alekseevna, flung themselves into the theatrical atmosphere of Orel. The guys watched the Robbery comedy ( Russian Грабёж , Grabjosch ). The plot of the performance based on the grotesque short story of our fellow countryman N.S. Leskov is simple, clear and very funny, because it is based on an anecdotal story about how a well-behaved merchant who came from Yelets city gets into trouble, and along with him his relatives, and the deacon, and other Orel residents.
The performance is permeated with the flavor of an era that has passed away from us for more than 100 years, but, really, in the human sphere, little has changed: venerable mothers, just like today, take care of their over-age children, people are just as concerned only with material wealth, everything is like today ...
In the finale of the performance, all misunderstandings are happily resolved, and we are not abandoned by the belief that there is an island of purity, love and decency in the human soul, and, as Leo Tolstoy said, “as long as the world stands, man will also stand”.
And it was a wonderful immersion in a new experience, a new layer of local culture. After the performance, the students had the opportunity to get acquainted with the theatrical designer exhibition in the foyer of the theater. Anna Nazarova, the author, presented her sketches, costumes and stage scenery for more than 50 performances.
And then the magical atmosphere of the backstage, where costumes, stage property and scenery begin to speak. And those who were on the stage are reincarnated again into ordinary people or still unusual, but endowed with a wonderful gift of reincarnation ...

ARCHITECTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION INSTITUTE DOORS OPEN DAY
The last structural unit of the Flagship University, which opened its doors to applicants and their parents, was the Architectural and Construction Institute.
The meeting began with an excursion for guests, during which students and teachers of the institute introduced applicants to the future place of study. Applicants visited the exhibition hall, where the works of students studying in the field of education "Architecture" and "Urban Development" were presented. In the process, the schoolchildren talked with the leaders of educational programs and asked them questions.
Further, the acquaintance continued in classrooms and workshops, where the children could see with their own eyes how the learning process was built. Thus, applicants visited a model workshop, where work is carried out using computer modeling in the disciplines "Compositional Modeling", "Professional Modeling", "Landscape Design and Urban Greening"; a workshop of sculptural and plastic modeling, in which volumetric-plastic models of interior and exterior elements are made.
In the laboratory for quality control of building construction, Associate Professor of the Department of Building Constructions and Materials Kirill Marfin showed the schoolchildren the calculation of the bearing capacity of a wooden sample with an adhesive bond.
“I can safely tell you that the field of education “Construction” will always be relevant, regardless of external factors or economic situation. It will always be necessary to service the existing housing and build a new one,” said Kirill Marfin.
In the second part of the event, applicants and their parents met with the director of the Architectural and Construction Institute Elena Skobeleva.
Elena Skobeleva told what should be paid attention to when choosing a future profession, what are the advantages of studying at the institute and what perspectives await graduates.
It will be recalled that in 2021 the Architectural and Construction Institute is recruiting in four fields of education (99 budget places):
07.03.04 Urban Development
20.03.01 Technosphere Safety
OSU STUDENTS DISCUSSED TECHNOLOGIES IN WASTE MANAGEMENT AND RECYCLING
Currently, the 7th Youth Festival in the field of sustainable development "VUZEKOFEST-2021" is being held at Orel State University named after I. S.Turgenev.
VuzEcoFest is a youth project to form a community of leaders, mentors and subsequently professionals in the field of sustainable development, disseminating knowledge, skills and implementing specific solutions with the support of stakeholders (university administrations, business representatives, NGOs and government agencies) at the level of universities, cities and and the country as a whole. The organization of "VuzEcoFest" is carried out by ANO "Territory of Sustainable Development" with the support of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation.
This year, six structural subdivisions of our Flagship University, as well as educational institutions of Orel city, take part in the festival. In total, more than forty events are planned within the framework of the project, including lectures, master classes, student competitions, etc.
One of them was film "Waste recycling and utilization technologies as a factor in ensuring environmental safety" representation, held for students of the Institute of Economics and Management. During the session, the students watched two documentaries about states with diametrically opposed ecological situations. This is Ghana, which is called the "land of garbage" and Scandinavian countries such as Sweden and Finland, which implement the most modern methods of waste recycling.
“In a developed economy, in a developing economy and in a problem economy too, ecology is important. This is not to say that there are states without environmental problems. But there are states that know how to turn these problems into pluses and get positive economic and social results from them. And there are states that, having environmental problems, do not have the opportunity to direct them in a positive direction, and to solve them in such a way that it is useful for the state in general, and for the population in particular," said Olga Fedorova, Associate Professor of the Department of Economics, Finance and Accounting.
The students were able to discuss their impressions of the film and compare the methods of waste recycling in different countries at the round table “Using modern environmental technologies: Russian and foreign experience”.
According to students opinion, the main reasons for such differing environmental situations in countries are their mentality, government policy, and the economic level of development of the country. However, in order to start moving in the right direction, it is necessary, first of all, to start with oneself and to realize the importance of ecology as one of the main factors affecting the population quality of life.

Art of Costume and Textiles.
Vitaly Terekhov, Director of the Resource Center for Career Guidance, told applicants and their parents about the admission rules in 2021. Note that this year the Polytechnic Institute has a total of 100 budget places, and due to the fact that the exams required for admission are not on the most popular subjects, the chances of entering the budget places are very high.
After that, the teachers conducted an excursion for applicants to classrooms and laboratories, which are equipped with the facilities necessary for studying specialties and obtaining practical skills.
For example, the educational infrastructure of the specialty "Land Transport and Technological Means" includes modern technological equipment, full-size construction machines, computer stands for operator workstations, a modern laboratory for hydraulic and pneumatic drives and automation, visual aids of car components and assemblies, software and hardware for multimedia information display. Laboratories with modern equipment, on which students can do something with their own hands and see all the details of complex mechanisms, are available for each area of training.
During the excursion, the schoolchildren were able to communicate closely with the teachers, ask their questions about the learning process and even try themselves as a tower crane operator. Fyodor Gogolevsky sat in the simulator's chair - despite the fact that he is now in the tenth grade, he has already decided on his professional activities:
“Today I liked everything very much, the teachers explained and showed everything in great detail! I myself am engaged in various equipment, I repair motorcycles. This is very close to my heart. So I practically decided on my future profession,” Fedor shared his impressions later.
It should be pointed out that graduates of the Polytechnic Institute named after N.N. Polikarpov are in high demand in various industries: automobile manufacturing, rocket production, aircraft, shipbuilding, drilling machinery building and many other areas.

faculty of physics and mathematics doors open day
OSU named after I. S. Turgenev continues to hold open days of its Institutes and Faculties. The Faculty of Physics and Mathematics became another structural unit that opened its doors for school graduates and their parents.
At the meeting, the guests were greeted by the Dean of the Faculty, Tatyana Mozharova, who spoke about its history and the ongoing areas of training and specialties.
“The Faculty of Physics and Mathematics is one of the oldest Faculties of the University - we stood at the origins of the creation of our higher educational institution. The Faculty grew and developed together with the University."
In 2021, the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of our Flagship University is recruiting future students on eight Bachelor degree programs:
Mathematics (profile: Mathematics for Big Data Analysis);
Applied Mathematics and Informatics (profile: Digital Technologies in Fundamental and Applied Research);
Mathematical Support and Administration of Information Systems (profile: Mathematical Support of Intelligent Systems);
Physics (profile: Medical Physics)
Physics (profile: Semiconductor Physics)
Applied Informatics (profile: Cognitive Technologies);
Pedagogical education with two training profiles: Mathematics and Informatics
Pedagogical education with two training profiles: Informatics and Mathematics.
The heads of the respective educational programs told the applicants in more detail about each direction of training. This year, for the first time, the Faculty is recruiting "Physicists" with two training profiles: Medical Physics and Semiconductor Physics.
“Our direction is new, but extremely promising. The simplest thing you can do is servicing high-tech medical equipment. Medicine now is not at all what it was 15-20 years ago; it needs other competencies. Therefore, the 3d-4th years is devoted to the study of medical technologies and such subjects as anatomy, physiology, etc.
As part of the profile, you will learn methods for studying living systems, the use of physical technologies in medicine and computer technologies in data processing and visualization," said Alexander Zakharov, Head of the "Physics (profile: Medical Physics)" educational program.
Particular attention at the Open Day was given to the Admission Rules 2021. Vitaly Terekhov, Director of the Resource Center for Career Guidance of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev, spoke about the admission procedure and innovations.
The main differences are the fo;;owing: the ability to combine subjects for admission and one wave of enrollment instead of the usual two. Now the applicant must pass two compulsory subjects and one optional from the proposed list. For example, when applying for the direction of training "Mathematics (profile: Mathematics for Big Data Analysis)", you must pass specialized mathematics and the Russian language, and also choose one subject: Computer Science and ICT or Physics.
“You can apply to our University simultaneously for five areas of study. This allows you to cover almost all your requests and increase the chances of getting on the budget form of education,” noted Vitaly Vasilyevich.

GOLDEN DOMES OF BOLKHOV CITY
Traditionally, foreign students of our University have a unique opportunity to discover the pages of history and culture not only of Orel city, but also of Orel region as a whole. This allows them to understand better the country with which the wonderful years of student life are associated. Our teachers and staff are always ready to help students from Haiti, Indonesia, Nigeria, Congo and other countries in this endless process of learning the culture of another country.
So, this year in April , when spring became generous on a warm and fine day, a group of foreign students of OSU Law Institute, students of Medical and Philological Institutes could see in all their splendor and grandeur the temples of the ancient Russian city of Orel region, Bolkhov, with which more than one page of the history of Russia was historically connected. The excursion took place under the wise mentorship of Albina Agaeva, a teacher of OSU Law Institute, and an active expert on cultural values of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, candidate of art history Marianna Komova, associate professor of the Department of Theology, Religious Studies and Cultural Aspects of National Security of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev.
The history of the city begins in 1196, when Bolkhov suffered from fires more than once during the medieval wars between the feudal lords.
On this day, the students visited the following Bolkhov temples: The Transfiguration Cathedral, with a unique, stunning visitors with its volumes, shapes, two-story layout; Holy Trinity Church located in the center of Bolkhov near the central square, where five centuries ago stood the Bolkhovsky Kremlin-the central fortified place of Russian cities.
In one of the churches preserved from the Monastery of the Nativity of Christ, the students met a man of a complex and remarkable fate. The former naval officer, who has passed a long life path, after completing his service, returned to his native city, where he became an Orthodox priest, the Father Superior of one of the churches. Welcoming the guests from foreign countries, he told them about his life choices and answered students questions, many of whom had relatives make the same choice of serving God in their lives.
The eventful excursion day ended in the Bolkhovsky Trinity-Optina Convent. The students were met by the abbess of the Monastery, Abbess Euphalia, and the nun Augusta, who previously worked in the worldly life of the famous Museum of Ancient Russian Art named after Andrey Rublev.
The Abbess of the Monastery invited the students to taste the dishes of Russian Lenten cuisine. The tradition of introducing foreign law students to the culinary culture of Russia, which was started in the fall of last year, continued there, using such fertile occasions as numerous secular and Orthodox holidays.
During the tour of the Monastery, students learned about its unique history, which connected our Orel land with the dynasty of Russian tsars, who revived the Russian state after the time of troubles and raised it to the scale of world imperial power.
And the last event that completed this memorable day for all participants was the indescribable view of the old Russian city, crowned with golden domes of churches, which opens from the observation deck behind the Trinity Church.

- Guys, tell us more about the task set out to you at the hackathon?
“We were set out a task called "Optimization of the planning process for tourism solutions". We needed to create a mobile application. Some of the criteria necessary for the mentor were already known, but it was necessary to come up with something of our own. Simply said, we need to combine everything and present it in a new and interesting coverage so that the business can apply it in the future. "
- How much time did you have for implementation?
"We worked at the hackathon for two days for 25 hours."
- Who did you work with in the same team?
“We were combined with a team of students from Moscow, where there was already a designer and two product managers. We acted as developers. "
- It turns out that previously you were not familiar with other team members. Did you manage to work together?
“We had a very cool team! The guys are just great! They even exceeded the work they needed to do. We worked well together, everything went in a friendly atmosphere. Also, other team members acted as motivators for us, we did not want to lag behind and let them down. We came up with the general idea together, but then our work was divided. Vlad and I were engaged in the technical part, and the rest of the guys were designing and adding new ideas to the application. "
- This is your first hackathon. Was it difficult?
“On the one hand, it was difficult, especially when you are awake for such a long time, but interest compensates for everything. This is a unique experience for us, we liked the hackathon! Before the second day, we did not sleep almost all night. In the morning, when there was no strength at all, we looked at what we had done and received just great satisfaction, forgetting about tiredness. The atmosphere of the event is also very conducive to work. Everything took place at the Luzhniki Sports Palace in the Gymnastic Center of Irina Viner-Usmanova. A huge arena, a lot of people ... The scale is such that it will take your breath away! You feel like a participant in sports ".
- What emotions did you have when you found out that you took first place?
“We didn't even think we could take first place, because this is our first hackathon. We understood that we could perform well, but not that much. It was important for us to show ourselves and not let the team members down. All day after the announcement of the results, we were on a powerful emotional uplift! We even completely forgot that we won the money prize."

Megagrant Research During the Visit of the Leading Scientist
During the period of March 1 to March 21, 2021, Professor, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Abramov Andrey Yurievich (leading scientist from the Institute of Neurology, University College London, Great Britain)worked at the Cell Physiology and Pathology Laboratory. During this period,the laboratory staff conducted a series of experiments under his supervision to complete a number of project tasks of the Federal Government megagrant aimed at the implementation of the project "Mitochondria as a Target in the Mechanism of Neurodegenerative Diseases".
The laboratory staff performed their research on modern high-tech equipment, including one of the most powerful confocal microscopes in Russia Carl Zeiss LSM 900 Airyscan 2 (Germany).
The obtained research results were heard and discussed at weekly seminars in the new conference hall named after Dr. V.I. Turbin (room 314).
In the video received by the leading researcher of the laboratory, Ph.D. Berezhnov Aleksey Valerievich, presents the result of an experiment to find new ways to protect cells in neurodegenerative disorders, in particular, in Parkinson's disease (PD). In a confocal image of fibroblast of a patient with a hereditary form of Parkinson's disease (mutation in the PINK1 gene), mitochondria are stained red using a voltage-sensitive dye, and the cell nucleus is green. The cells were treated with the RTA-408 natural antioxidant defense system activator. The normal morphology of the mitochondrial network, characteristic of fibroblasts in healthy people, and the absence of pathological forms of mitochondria (so-called mitochondrial "donuts"), characteristic of the cells of patients with hereditary PD, are noted. Thus, our preliminary data on cell cultures show that antioxidant therapy can be an effective means of restoring the morphology of the mitochondrial reticulum under PD conditions.
On March 10, 2021 Head of the Laboratory - Professor, Doctor of Biological Sciences Abramov Andrey Yurievich, delivered a lecture "The role of the transcription factor NRF2 in the control of bioenergy and redox state" for the project staff, as well as for students and teachers of OSU Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology.

"Human Resources Policy of the Light Industry Cluster 2021" Session was Held at OSU named after I.S. Turgenev
In the showroom of OSU Fashion Industry Department, a strategic session "Human Resources Policy of the Light Industry Cluster 2021" was held. Orel Region Cluster of Light Industry was created in December 2019, it included the enterprises of the region, including our Flagship University.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss issues of personnel training for regional enterprises, development of directions of interaction between enterprises of Orel Region Light Industry Cluster with the Fashion Industry Department and the formation of the Cluster's personnel policy. The session was attended by heads of regional light industry enterprises, heads of educational programs "Designing of light industry products", "Technology of products of Fashion Industry Department" and "Art of costume and textiles" directions.
Working groups within 6 hours identified problems and looked for solutions to the issues of providing qualified personnel for light industry enterprises in the region.
Svetlana Lebedeva worked with the meeting participants as an invited facilitator.
“The Light Industry Cluster has a large number of problems related to the recruitment, retention and development of personnel in industries. Accordingly, we decided to assemble the Cluster so that representatives could understand the essence of the problem and ways of solving it. Our main goal is to provide further comfortable work for the staff.
Today I am doing facilitation. Its classic difference from training is that during facilitation it is impossible to plan what people will take with them on the way out. There are two ways: the participants individually come to conscious decisions or a common understanding arises among the whole group that the problem can be dealt with,” Svetlana explained.
The results of the session allowed the Сluster representatives to formulate its personnel policy and outline the main measures to increase the prestige of the industry's professions.

OSU Foreign Students Got Acquainted with Traditions of Russian Maslenitsa
On March 11, 2021 teachers of the Department of Russian as a Foreign Language and Intercultural Communication Professors Elizarova L.N. and Belskaya M.I. held a socio-cultural event "Maslenitsa: Traditions and Customs".* Due to the fact that students are on distance learning, this event was held in online format based on ZOOM platform. Such events are of no small importance for the perception of socio-cultural characteristics, customs and traditions, national symbols of the country in which foreign language is taught.
*Maslenitsa (also known as Butter Lady, Butter Week, Crepe week, or Cheesefare Week) is an Eastern Slavic religious and folk holiday, which has retained a number of elements of Slavic mythology in its ritual, celebrated during the last week before Great Lent, that is, the eighth week before Eastern Orthodox Pascha.
Students of group No. 10D got acquainted with the traditions and customs of the Russian national holiday "Maslenitsa"; learned why this holiday is called Maslenitsa, when Maslenitsa is celebrated; how long Maslenitsa lasts, what dish is traditionally prepared during Maslenitsa, what is the name of the last day of Maslenitsa. Students from Syria, Egypt, Iran and Yemen read recipes for baking pancakes, listened to Russian folk ritual songs, and discussed why Maslenitsa is one of the favorite folk holidays in Russia.
On March 11, 2021, students of 8D group of the Foundation courses at the Faculty for work with foreign students of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev (teachers: associate professor T.N. Korshunova, associate professor O. Denisova) an extracurricular educational event was held (online) dedicated to Maslenitsa holiday.
Purpose: to acquaint listeners with the traditions, customs and rituals of the ancient Russian holiday and to expand the ideas of foreigners about the way of life and way of life in Russia.
The presentation contains slides with the necessary thematic vocabulary, accompanying the visual series, as well as reproductions of paintings by Russian artists of the 19th-20th centuries, dedicated to each of the days of the Cheese Fare Week. The slide show was accompanied by lexical and grammatical work, in which future students took a direct part.
As part of the event, a video film "A Brief History of Maslenitsa" was shown, which presents a retrospective of ancient customs and rituals of Russia, preserved in one form or another to this day and accompanied by a voiceover explaining what is happening.
Observations and feedback from the audience revealed a sincere interest in the ancient holiday and the desire of foreigners to come to Russia and get to know the life of Russians in real life.
Development of Cooperation Programs with Educational Institutions from China
Orel State University Department of Design led by Dmitry Anatolyevich Khvorostov, launched an active work on finding ways to interact with educational institutions from the People's Republic of China, knowing that our eastern partners appreciate Russian education in the field of art. Interaction with colleagues from Weihai Vocational College began back in 2020.
Weihai Vocational College is a public vocational training institution established by the government of Weihai City, Shandong Province in 2000. The college became one of the Provincial Advanced Educational Institutions, and was one of the first to be awarded the title of Advanced Education Unit in Shandong Province.
There are about 18,000 students and 1,280 teachers in the College. The College campus covers an extensive area of 203.2 hectares. The library has 119.7 million copies of paper books and three million copies of electronic books.
Weihai Vocational College has highly developed areas of training such as Design and Art. This is how the craftsmen pass on to students the cultural heritage of such traditional Chinese crafts as artistic paper cutting, inlay on teapots, embroidery, making ship models, shell inlay, and art products made from jiaodonghua dough. Working studios and institutes of intangible cultural heritage were established specifically for these purposes. Due to these circumstances, the desire to interact with the Department of Art and Graphics of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev is quite understandable.
On March 10, 2021, an online meeting of two teams was held, dedicated to cooperation and coordination of issues related to the signing of a general agreement, which should subsequently be supplemented with more specific memorandums.
On the Russian side, the meeting was attended by Director of the International Relations Department Svetlana Anatolyevna Aronova, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Graphics Shulgin Mikhail Mikhailovich and Head of the Design Department Dmitry Anatolyevich Khvorostov, thanks to whose efforts this meeting became possible.
From the Chinese side, the meeting was attended by the Head of International Affairs Sun Aijun, Dean of the Faculty of Architecture Sun Gang, the Secretary of the Party Committee of the Faculty of Architecture Duan Jun, the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Architecture Liu Yongjuan, the leader of the architectural design group Wang Chen, the leader of the environmental art design specialty Wang Huanjie, the leader of specialty of engineering technique of architectural design Dong Yuanlin's.
During the meeting, the parties spoke about their educational institutions, areas of interest for training, discussed possible areas of cooperation. Colleagues arranged a settlement to sign a general agreement on holding a competition of works, in which representatives of both Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev and Weihai Vocational College may take part. They also discussed the possibility of postgraduate studies at Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev for teachers from Weihai Vocational College, as well as the possibility of conducting classes by teachers of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev for students of Weihai Vocational College.
At the end of the meeting, the Head of the Department of Design Dmitry Anatolyevich Khvorostov was awarded the Diploma of Honorary Professor of Weihai Professional College by the Head of International Affairs Sun Aizun, so far virtually and in electronic form. The same honor was given to the Director of the International Relations Department S.A. Aronova.
"Ideas Generation" Program is Gaining Momentum. Participants Share Their First Impressions
Since February 21, "Ideas Generation" acceleration program has been started at Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev. It was developed by the Business Incubator for university students. The number of participants was really impressive! 34 people have registered for the program.
Some students "entered" the project with already formed ideas and a desire to bring them to life. Among the ideas, the participants articulated the following: opening a tea cafe, getting a food delivery service underway (with step-by-step recipes for preparing certain dishes), opening a beauty salon.
An introductory meeting and the first three-hour online lesson have already taken place within the framework of Ideas Generation. Today we are going to meet one of the project teams. They are 1st year students of the Institute of Economics and Management Olga Zueva and Ekaterina Bykova.
- Ladies, tell us how you found out about the Ideas Generation Program?
“We learned about the program from our teacher Olga Firsova. Last semester Olga Nikolaevna taught us the subject "Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship". We think she saw our capacity and offered to participate. Of course, we agreed without pausing to think! "
- Have you previously been interested in entrepreneurship?
“Yes, there were thoughts of becoming an entrepreneur. My mom did this for a certain period of time. Therefore, I had an interest and a desire to connect my life with this,” said Ekaterina.
“Thanks to Olga Nikolaevna's subject, I learned about the basics of entrepreneurship and after that I started thinking about realizing myself in this direction. Also, Katya and I were doing a common project and somehow everything worked out. We got along well and approached each other according to our abilities,” Olga said.
- You came to this program with an idea. Tell us more about it.
“Our idea is to create a QR code, thanks to which children will be able to learn more information about water and about such a global problem as its shortage. This idea originated during the subject course of Marketing. We had a task to develop a drinking water bottle design,” Olga began her story.
“It was followed up with the purchase of juice for my sister and the package had a QR code. She clicked on it and played a game on her phone. At that moment, we thought, why not present cognitive content in the same way,” added Ekaterina.
- Do you think such a business idea will be successful?
“We suppose it will be. Moreover,we are sure of success."
- As we know, you have already participated in the Young Professionals Championship with this idea. Why did you decide to do this?
"We wanted to test this idea and, of course, bring it to life."
- What are your expectations from the Ideas Generation Program?
“When we came to the program, we only had sketches of our project. We wanted to understand how to move on, in which direction and where to start. Already now our expectations are fully justified. Alena Yaroslavovna helped us understand how to better apply our skills and move forward. We can say that thanks to the "Generation of business ideas" our idea took shape. "
- You had your first lesson, and you had a week to work. What have you done this week?
“We were able to clearly understand what we need and what we want. Now our project is at the stage of developing a hypothesis. "
- Do you currently need any specialists for implementation?
“Yes, we definitely need an IT specialist. We can create a QR code ourselves, but we do not have the skills to create an application yet, but we need an application by all means."
- Please share your impressions after the first lesson.
“They are extremely positive. We didn't even notice how the whole three hours flew by! We did not expect that we can get to such an event. It all happened so quickly. The first lesson motivated us. There is an understanding that we have a heart for it."
- Does the program interfere in any way with studies at the university?
“No, it doesn’t interfere. We have a lot of extracurricular activities in which we are involved. It can be difficult, but we learn to combine everything efficiently."
- What advice would you give to those people who want, but, perhaps, are afraid to come to such events or feel insecure?
“We believe that you have to go 100% and try. You can go to an introductory lesson, listen, take a closer look. What if it’s really yours, and you don’t go and miss a lot. Some guys are afraid to take responsibility, but you need to understand that all life is responsibility, it is not only in business. "
The activities under the Ideas Generation Program continues. We are going to get acquainted with other participants.
"Experts in Germany" Quest at the Department of German of the Institute of Foreign Languages
On March 4, 2021, the third floor of the Institute of Foreign Languages building for an hour became a field for conducting the scientific and practical quest "Experts in Germany", which was prepared by students of group 74(Pedagogic direction) and the German Language Department.
The participants,second-year students of the German Language Department, completed the tasks of the six stations of the quest with passion and inspiration, demonstrating their intelligence and creative abilities, competing with each other in knowledge of the country of the target language. Quest tasks, such as geography of Germany, culture, famous personalities, were varied; but most importantly, they were interesting, not boring, and the students were looking for and finding answers very actively.
The winners were students of group 94 (Linguistics), who scored almost the maximum number of points. Participants and organizers also cordially congratulated the group 94(Pedagogics) on the second place in this competition.
We hope for further interest of students in such events, which allow them to understand the strong connection between the studied language and culture.
Special Issue of the Diagnostics Journal
A special issue of "Optical Diagnostics in Human Diseases" of Diagnostics (Q1, IF 3.11) was published. Andrey Dunaev, a leading researcher at the Research and Development Center of Biomedical Photonics and the Сell Physiology and Pathology Laboratory, was its guest editor.
Diagnostics (ISSN 2075-4418; CODEN: DIAGC9) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on medical diagnosis published monthly online by MDPI.
This issue of the journal highlights the advantages and unique aspects of using optical diagnostic methods in identifying and assessing various pathological conditions. The issue includes 4 articles prepared at the Research and Development Center, which were based on the results of the implementation of 3 RFBR projects (The Russian Foundation for Basic Research) and 1 RSF project (Russian Science Foundation). It should be noted that 2 articles were carried out jointly with doctors from 2 departments of Orel Regional Clinical Hospital - endocrinologist G.I. Masalygina and a surgeon, candidate of medical sciences, associate professor A.V. Mamoshin.
The article “Machine Learning Aided Photonic Diagnostic System for Minimally Invasive Optically Guided Surgery in the Hepatoduodenal Area” is devoted to the development of technical implementation and assessment of the application of machine learning methods for differentiating healthy and malignant tissues of hepatoduodenal organs by fluorescence spectroscopy. The introduction of this approach is aimed at increasing the efficiency of minimally invasive surgical operations by providing additional diagnostic information in real time. The development of the experimental system presented in the article and data collection were carried out within the framework of the project of the Russian Science Foundation No. 18-15-00201 "Clinical and experimental substantiation of multiparameter optical biopsy of the hepatopancreatoduodenal zone organs during minimally invasive surgical operations" in cooperation with the surgical department of the Regional Clinical Hospital.
The article "Optical Diagnostics of the Maxillary Sinuses by Digital Diaphanoscopy Technology" is devoted to the development of digital diaphanoscopy technology for the diagnosis of inflammatory diseases of the maxillary sinuses, taking into account the anatomical, age and gender characteristics of patients. The proposed approach may have significant prospects for screening assessment of the state of the maxillary sinuses both in a hospital and medical institutions, and remotely in the absence of otolaryngologists and diagnostic doctors. This study was carried out within the framework of the RFBR research Postgraduates project No. 20-32-90147 "Clinical and experimental substantiation of digital diaphanoscopy technology for diagnosing pathologies of the maxillary sinuses." The work was done in collaboration with the German company "Art Photonics".
The article "Laser Doppler Spectrum Analysis Based on Calculation of Cumulative Sums Detects Changes in Skin Capillary Blood Flow in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus" is dedicated to the development of a new signal processing and data analysis method for digital laser Doppler flowmetry. The main practical result of the study is the development of classifiers that allow, on the basis of the presented diagnostic algorithm, to identify typical patterns of blood microcirculation in healthy volunteers and patients with diabetes mellitus. This study was carried out within the framework of the research RFBR project for Postgraduate students No. 19-32-90253 "Method of decomposition of Doppler broadening spectra of laser radiation to assess the distribution of microcirculatory oscillations" in collaboration with the endocrinology department of the Regional Clinical Hospital.
The article "Body Position Affects Capillary Blood Flow Regulation Measured with Wearable Blood Flow Sensors" is devoted to the study of changes in microcirculation parameters when changing body position using a distributed system of wearable laser Doppler flowmeters. The importance of taking into account the position of the body in space when monitoring physiological parameters interrelated with the microvasculature is shown. The results obtained may be of particular interest for the possibility of integrating the laser Doppler flowmetry channel into wearable electronics in order to monitor the state of the cardiovascular system. The study was carried out within the framework of the RFBR scientific project No. 20-08-01153 "Development of fundamental foundations for the creation and use of wearable multichannel laser Doppler blood microcirculation sensors for diagnosing cardiovascular disorders" in cooperation with the National Medical Research Center for Therapy and Preventive Medicine of the Ministry of Health of Russia and the Institute biomedical problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
We congratulate the authors on their publications and wish them further success in their scientific research!
The Formation of Youth Entrepreneurial Competencies Was Discussed at the Round Table
On the basis of OSU Institute of Economics and Management, an online round table meeting "Formation of youth entrepreneurial competencies for future professional self-determination and career building" was held as part of the V Regional Championship "Young Professionals" (WorldSkillsRussia).
The event was held with the aim of exchanging experience in organizing work with youth in the field of entrepreneurship. The features of the functioning of the regional infrastructure for running youth business (availability, opportunity and effectiveness of contacts with small business support institutions, government and other organizations) were considered.
The round table was attended by representatives of Orel City Administration, Orel Chamber of Commerce and Industry, representatives of business, youth organizations, OSU students and schoolchildren. The participants discussed various aspects of the development and support of youth business in Russia and Orel region, factors hindering youth entrepreneurship, ways to improve functional literacy and involve young people in business.
Irina Alekseevna Maslova, Acting Director of the Institute of Economics and Management, opened and hosted the event. She noted the relevance of the declared topic and the special interest in it on the part of students and schoolchildren around the world.
Alla Mikhailovna Ashikhmina, Deputy Head of the Financial and Economic Department of Orel City Administration, greeted the audience. She noted that “among the successful entrepreneurs, the prevailing belief is that it is impossible to teach entrepreneurship. However, speaking about the entrepreneurial activity of young people, it should be noted that by conducting seminars, trainings, master classes and other types of events, you can stimulate young people to express themselves, you can increase their level of competence, and, accordingly, self-confidence, and the desire to start personal business".
Alena Yaroslavovna Uvarova, Director of the Innovation Policy Department, spoke to the participants of the round table. In her report, she focused on the importance of entrepreneurial competencies specifically for young people. “The topic of youth entrepreneurship for Orel State University has not lost its relevance for many years. We started with the Presidential Management Training Program, within the framework of which the ideas of the students grew into the possibility of opening a new direction in business. The next area of work in this sphere is career planning for students. Employers make a request for the formation of entrepreneurial competencies among students, it is internal entrepreneurship that is the leading demand in the market, so the answer to this request was the Internal Entrepreneurship program, which our University implements through the Business Incubator. Another project is WorldSkills in the Entrepreneurship competency, which allows students and schoolchildren to go all the way from generating a business idea to its implementation in practice. Our University acts as an open platform for the implementation of youth entrepreneurship development programs. We are always open to dialogue."
Firsova Olga Nikolaevna, a certified WS expert in the Entrepreneurship competence, spoke about the WS movement in our university. “The history of championships for our country began in 2012, the University joined this movement in 2018 and mentors immediately began to prepare students and schoolchildren for participation in championships in the Entrepreneurship competency. At the moment, those girls who stood at the origins of this movement are already experts themselves and share their experience with new participants."
One of our participants received an offer to join the expanded composition of the National Team.
Olga Firsova noted: “Our Juniors joined the competition in 2018, by 2019 they were able to pass the qualifying championship and reach the National Final held in Kazan. Currently, five teams of schoolchildren are participating in the V Regional Championship "Young Professionals" (WorldSkills Russia)."
The representative of Orel Chamber of Commerce and Industry - Chairman of the Committee for Support and Development of Youth Entrepreneurship, Kirill Vladimirovich Simonov, shared the successful practice of developing youth entrepreneurial competencies in Orel Chamber of Commerce and Industry through the implementation of several directions at once: a youth entrepreneurial award "Business Generation", a youth forum for beginning entrepreneurs "Startup Days”, business quest “Startup on the Knee”, regional online entrepreneurship Olympiad and many other educational events.
Sergey N. Kutenev, General Director of Cable Factory "EXPERT-CABLE", noted that “the WS movement is the development of human capital throughout Russia, and not just an increase in the number of blue-collar workers. Any success depends solely on the soft skills of a person and on his desire to achieve something." He stressed that it is necessary to all together decide the issue of creating appropriate conditions for young people to realize themselves in their country. It is well known that how and to what extent the potential of young people will be realized - this will be our future.
Klimova Zhanna Nikolaevna, Acting Director of the Graduates Employment Assistance Center, presented the results of research on the modern labor market and the prospects for its development to the participants of the round table. She noted that in order to achieve the ambitious goal of our state to get into the top five economies of the country, it is necessary to focus on the "locomotive" of such rapid growth, namely, on youth entrepreneurship. However, as the study showed, according to entrepreneurs themselves, our country ranks 48th out of 50 in terms of opportunities for starting a business, and this is very indicative. Our country is uncomfortable for business, which is why in order to stimulate the development of entrepreneurship, it is necessary to develop an appropriate infrastructure for supporting entrepreneurial initiatives.
Shkodina Olga Aleksandrovna, Chief Economist of the Economic Department of Orel Region Branch of the Bank of Russia Central Administration in the Central Federal District, spoke about alternative sources of financing for small businesses, the peculiarities of the functioning of crowdfunding platforms and the possibilities of concessional lending to representatives of small and medium-sized businesses.
Anna Aleksandrovna Ivanova, head of the Resource Center for Volunteering in Orel Region, shared with the participants the experience of conducting projects in the field of social entrepreneurship, noting that it is young people who are most active in this area and the volunteer center contributes to the development of entrepreneurial competencies of youth in the field of social entrepreneurship.
The topics that were discussed during the round table meeting will be proposed for discussion at the discussion platforms of the upcoming conferences, planned by the Institute of Economics and Management. It was decided to exchange information between all participants in the process and actively involve students, schoolchildren and representatives of the business environment in the discussion.

The choice of the city of Orel as the venue for the Scientific Forum, according to him, is absolutely justified and fair, because "Orel region is an original native Russian land with a heroic history, rich in cultural and spiritual traditions."
“I am sure that our Conference will give a new impetus to the detailed study of the topic, and your thoughts, theses, concepts will become a prologue to a systematic analysis of the image of the future,” the Governor said in conclusion.
The head of the Communist Party faction in the State Duma Gennady Zyuganov addressed the participants and guests of the Forum via videoconference. The main emphasis in his speech was made on the fact that a decent future is possible if conditions for full-fledged work are created for the citizens of the country. According to him, "maximum social cohesion is required and a very energetic search for answers to all pressing questions."
According to the Deputy of the State Duma Olga Pilipenko, funding for scientific research is insufficient today. “In order to make those breakthroughs that would become a reserve for the future, we need a completely different budget for science,” she stressed.
Olga Vasilievna also added that when shaping the future, it is necessary to talk about human potential - it is necessary to attract young scientists to science. She mentioned that in recent years there has been a decrease in the number of graduate students in universities. This suggests that interest in science is waning. "If there are no young scientists, then it will be problematic to shape both socio-economic development and the breakthroughs that we need now."
At the end of her speech, the State Duma Deputy wished success to the Conference participants and expressed hope that such events would become a tradition.
During the Conference, speakers discussed the following topics:
"Methodological and theoretical aspects of studying the image of the future";
"Images of the future in the past of Russia";
"Images of the future in modern Russia";
"Images of the future in a variable cultural context."
OSU named after I.S. Turgenev took part in the All-Russian Action "Tolles Diktat 2021"
Institute of Foreign Languages of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev became one of the sites for the All-Russian action "Tolles Diktat 2021", the purpose of which is to popularize the German language and culture.
This year, the action is held from 19 to 24 February as part of the celebration of the Year of Germany in Russia with the support of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.
On February 19, 2021, teachers of German Language Department held a dictation with students studying German as a first and a second foreign language. The dictation was conducted in groups according to the level of the participants' German language proficiency: from beginner A1 to advanced B2.
More than 30 students took part in the action. Now their work will be evaluated by an expert jury, and the participants will receive diplomas and certificates.
The students of Flagship University started the second stage of training within the framework of "Mechanical Technician" program
Faculty of Secondary Vocational Education of Orel State University launched a project for the implementation of the vocational training program "Mechanical Technician" in January. The program was created at the request of the employer LLC "Orlovsky Steel Rolling Plant"(OSPAZ- Orel production unit of Severstal-metiz)
Orlovsky Steel Rolling Plant is a part of Severstal-metiz, the Severstal hardware group. Public joint-stock company Severstal-metiz is a group of enterprises that unites the hardware assets of Severstal. It is included in the TOP-5 European manufacturers of hardware products in its segment. PJSC Severstal is one of the world's largest vertically integrated steel and mining companies with assets in Russia, Latvia and Poland. The company's shares are listed on the Russian trading floor MICEX-RTS, global depositary receipts are listed on the London Stock Exchange. In 2020, the company's revenues amounted to $ 6.870 million, EBITDA reached $ 2.422 million. In 2020, 11.3 million tons of steel were produced.
Two months of training, which took place on the basis of the Faculty of Secondary Vocational Education, are already over for 17 senior students. Now they start to master the program already on the territory of the employer. The training is designed for four months and will end in May. During this time, students will go through three stages of the project from theory to practice and work at the plant. For the period of the program, each student will be officially employed and will receive a salary. The plant also covered all expenses related to the training and education of young specialists. Upon completion of the project, students will pass a qualification exam, acquire a new profession and be able to make the final decision on employment.
According to the OSPAZ administration, the need for such a project is long overdue, since training in a number of specialties in demand in industry has been discontinued in the region. The labor market is experiencing a shortage of some specialists, most of all - repairmen. It was for the training of these specialists that this project was created. While it is a pilot, and if it turns out to be successful, it will be applied further, including for other professions.
“Interaction with the employer is very important for the University, because the employment of students is our priority. And the program, created on the initiative of Orlovsky Steel Rolling Plant, provides good opportunities for senior students. They are trained in a new profession together with an experienced mentor, gain practical skills and can be immediately employed. This is a great start for a future career," commented Director of OSU Innovation Policy Department Alena Uvarova.
Andrey Korneev, Dean of the Faculty of Secondary Professional Education, congratulated the students on the beginning of the second stage of the project:
“Dear friends, you are starting your training within the framework of "Mechanical Technician" program but already on the territory of the employer OSPAZ LLC. Four exciting months of immersion in the profession await you. As the dean of the Faculty, I congratulate you on this event. I wish that new competencies are easy to master, the work brings moral satisfaction, and your expertise grows more and more every day. Listen carefully to your mentors. We believe that working at Oryol Steel Rolling Plant will be a great start to your career path!"
On the first day of the second stage of the program, the students took a tour of the fastening shop floor, where they will work, and were also introduced to the curator and mentor in the person of HR-curator Tatyana Kalinina and the Head of the mechanical and electrical service Andrei Yevtushenko.
OSU students meet the employers at the Flagship University. Interviews with chief executives
At Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev, a meeting with employers was held together with the Center for Graduates Employment Assistance, the Business Incubator and the Department of Information Systems and Digital Technologies. In order to attract new IT-personnel, representatives of two companies spoke to the students:Head of the Investment Department Dmitry Shalimov and Head of the Recruitment Department Irina Shalaeva of Cable Factory "EXPERT-CABLE", as well as Director of ABSOLUT-TRADE company Mikhail Shumilin. At the meeting, they spoke in detail about their companies, current vacancies and working conditions. Director of OSU Business Park Oleg Dorofeev and Acting Director of OSU Center for Graduates Employment Assistance Zhanna Klimova were also present during the acquaintance of the students with the heads of enterprises.
Correspondent of OSU Information Policy Department managed to communicate with employers and ask them a few questions:
Dmitry Shalimov, Head of the Investment Department of Cable Factory "EXPERT-CABLE": “We are interested in the University as a place that graduates specialists, and we try to pick them up at the stage of training”.
- Please tell us what request you have applied to OSU named after I.S. Turgenev?
- At the moment, we have applied to the Flagship University with two requests. The first request is a direction related to IT developments, or rather, with the creation of an information platform, on the basis of which trade will be carried out according to 223 and 44 Federal Laws. The platform is already at the stage of deep development. For further development, we need IT specialists. We want them to help the company develop, maintain this system and, possibly, participate in the development of new advertising products. Our second inquiry is directly related to the activities of Cable Factory "EXPERT-CABLE" itself. Now the activities of the cable industry plant as a whole are characterized by high-speed, but low-margin business. Therefore, in order to increase profitability and maintain market positions, deep optimization of all processes existing at the enterprise is required. Since 2019, we have begun to implement a single ERP program based on 1C and, accordingly, now we have a need for additional specialists within the framework of this programming. We already have a large staff of active programmers. We are ready to take several people for an internship with further employment.
- Is there a “personnel gap” at your enterprise at the moment?
- I can say that yes, there is a "personnel gap". Today we came to the University with a request for IT specialists, but our company also needs technical specialists, cable production technologists and a number of other specialists. We have vacancies from time to time. The company is fast growing. Now the staff of the cable plant is about 380-400 people, but it is constantly growing, new specialists are constantly required. We do not grow extensively, but we try to grow intensively, that is, not by the number of people, but by their quality.
- You have been cooperating with OSU named after I.S. Turgenev for quite a long time. How fruitful is this collaboration?
- Our company has been working with OSU for more than two years in different directions. We participated in various educational programs at the University. For example, the "Innovation Manager" program, which was headed by Alena Uvarova, Director of Innovation Policy Department, in WorldSkills competitions. We cooperate to attract a number of technical specialties to our work. Therefore, this is not a new story, but an already developed and well-coordinated system of interaction. We are interested in the University as a place that graduates specialists, and we try to pick them up at the stage of training. I would like to note that this interaction became possible in many respects thanks to the general director of the plant Sergey Kutenev, who promotes this topic, for which he is especially grateful. He always stands for cooperation and the continuous development of competencies within the staff. We have our own and third-party training programs. Not a single person who came to him for help or advice with a desire to learn and develop has never been refused. Therefore, one of our competitive advantages, and perhaps most importantly, is the ability to constantly and unlimitedly learn, which gives us additional competencies and is a driver for growth.
“Our company is always striving for development. We want each of our employees to develop, strive for the best and are ready to provide all the conditions for this. Now we need 2-3 IT specialists. We are looking for young talents. Today we had a conversation with students to interest someone. We will be glad to welcome the students of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev among our employees,” explained Head of the Recruitment Department of Cable Factory "EXPERT-CABLE" Irina Shalaeva
Director of ABSOLUT-TRADE company Mikhail Shumilin: “We understand that these guys are smart, system-minded, and from them it is possible to create a personnel reserve, which in the future would give its "shoots".
- Tell us what brought you to OSU named after I.S. Turgenev?
- We are engaged in the development of tender electronic trading platform, it also has the name "Absolute Trade". At OSU, we applied to create a personnel reserve. We clearly understand that those guys who are now studying have some difficulties in determining their further career guidance. They still do not fully understand in what area they will program and with what environments they will work. But, nevertheless, we understand that these guys are smart, systemically thinking, and from them it is possible to create a personnel reserve, which in the future would give its "shoots". We could employ these guys, and they, in turn, would bring us quite tangible financial and economic results.
- How many specialists do you need at the moment?
- It's hard for me to say about the specific number, but the companies that we target the staff of programmers can be from 120 people. It's only programmers! Excluding analysts, designers and other employees.
- Do you understand that ready-made specialists do not always leave the university and they need some time to get involved in the work?
- I perfectly understand the level with which they leave the university. I myself am a software engineer by profession. I know what a romantic understanding of the surrounding reality, future professional and functional responsibilities is inherent in graduates. Yes, of course, we are ready to wait for some time, to understand, to give them time to figure everything out. I will say more, because the task is not to turn them into professionals in a short time. They will become them in a couple of years. The main task of the company, including mine, is to motivate them to become professionals. I know what programming is and did not stay in the profession. But I am convinced that if at that moment in my life there were people who would give me the opportunity to realize my potential, then I would most likely stay in programming.
- You said that the company's employees will work in Moscow. Tell us more about this.
- The internship will take place in Orel, but they will work in Moscow. Our company as a legal entity is registered in Orel, we tend to develop the economy of our region and pay taxes here, but the headquarters is located in Moscow. It's more convenient for us. And it's not because I live there. So much shorter all connections and communications. Frequent meetings are held in Moscow, the development of complex products must be joint, it can take years. It is difficult, in my opinion, to constantly travel from Orel with a large team.
- Is it your first time applying to Flagship University to search for employees?
- Yes, I apply for the first time to OSU named after I.S. Turgenev. Many of my colleagues are actively cooperating with various universities and quite successfully. So I decided to join this movement.
More information on vacancies from employers Cable Factory "EXPERT-CABLE" and the company "ABSOLUT-TRADE" can be found in the official group of the Center for Graduates Employment Assistance "Your Career in the Region".

Photo report from the Day of Russian Science at the Flagship University
On February 8, an official ceremony dedicated to the Day of Russian Science was held at Orel State University. Representatives of Orel Region Administration, the management of the Flagship University, industrial partners and the main heroes of the day - University scientists - gathered in the assembly hall of the University.
The event began with a minute of silence in memory of Fedor Stepanovich Avdeev, the former rector of Orel State University (1992 - 2013), in which he made the way from a student to the Counsellor on teacher education at the rector's office of the present-day Flagship University.
Larisa Nikolaevna Borisoglebskaya, Vice-Rector for Scientific and Project-Innovation Activitie, addressed the audience with a welcoming speech, congratulated the University scientists on the Day of Russian Science, wished them new plans and scientific achievements.
Acting Head of the Industry and Trade Department of Orel region Maxim Igorevich Petrov congratulated the scientific community of the Flagship University on behalf of the Government of Orel region:
“The most pleasant thing that I see here is that science has ceased to be a kind of “thing in itself”. I am now observing a process that our society and our country is leading to more interesting results than just the role of a pioneer. The process of introducing science into practice is in full swing today. And this is great, because your work will not be lost and will not remain a literacy on the wall, but will really change the lives of people in our country for the better. Therefore, I wish you all success, don't give up in no case in front of any temporary difficulties.
This year, our Department plans to hold a competition "The best ideas for the industry of Orel region". I invite you to participate, so that your ideas are implemented in the region and bring concrete results here."
Alexander Vladimirovich Polunin, Senior Scientific Consultant of the Research Institute of the Academy of the FSO of Russia, joined in the congratulations, wishing further fruitful scientific cooperation. Interaction between the two educational institutions began with joint publications and conferences. However, at present, it has reached a completely different level - a joint laboratory has been created related to programming problems and a project dedicated to intelligent systems has been developed.
Another partner of the Flagship University is the Air Force Academy named after Professor N.E. Zhukovsky and Yu.A. Gagarin (Voronezh). On the basis of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev, a research laboratory of intelligent systems was created, on the basis of which a joint project is being implemented to develop automated systems for ensuring the safe landing of helicopter-type aircraft. It aroused the interest of experts during a presentation at the X International Forum "Arctic: Present and Future". The head of the laboratory of intelligent systems, Vladimir Aleksandrovich Malyshev, spoke about the achieved results of the ongoing project, invited young scientists to join the project.
The research teams of the Flagship University were congratulated by the Director of the Department of Innovation Policy Alena Yaroslavovna Uvarova. Alena Yaroslavovna wished scientists new discoveries that will change the world for the better.
The official event was also attended by representatives of industrial partners: LLC IC TCS of OSU and LLC EcoDom.
Within a framework of the event dedicated to the Day of Russian Science, an excursion to the scientific centers and laboratories created during the implementation of national projects and federal programmes was organized for the guests.
On the processing line of the the Engineering Center for Digital Environment Technologies for Integrated Security: Telecommunications, Communication Facilities and Energy Efficiency (TC TCS), guests could see with their own eyes the process of manufacturing printed circuit boards and installing components on them as part of fulfilling orders from industrial partners.
For three years of implementation, the Engineering Center has reached full self-sufficiency and has become one of the best in Russia. It should be noted that the employees of the TC TCS are students and undergraduates of our University, who in practice apply the knowledge gained and at the same time learn new competencies.
Then the excursion continued at the Researech and Educational Center of Intelligent Technologies for Monitoring and Diagnostics of Power Generating Equipment.
The basis of the material and technical base of the REC is a software and hardware complex developed within the framework of an already implemented project to ensure the safety of objects of the power complex and experimental installations for the study of rotary machines.
Currently, work is underway to test the software and hardware complex in the conditions of power generation facilities under the auspices of the industrial partner JSC NPO VEI Elektroizolyatsiya.
The next stop of the excursion was the Research and Development Center of Biomedical Photonics, which is engaged in interdisciplinary research, combining biomedical engineering, medical instrumentation, medical physics, and biology. Several projects of the Russian Science Foundation, RFBR, grants of the President of the Russian Federation, the Fund for the Promotion of Innovations, as well as a "mega-grant" are being implemented here, within the framework of which the Laboratory of Cell Physiology and Pathology was opened on the basis of the REC.
The head of the Research and Development Center of Biomedical Photonics Andrei Valerievich Dunaev and his staff told the guests about the activities of the center, its equipment and the results achieved. Particular attention was paid to the Laboratory of Cell Physiology and Pathology, opened within the framework of the implementation of the "megagrant" “Mitochondria as a Target in the Mechanism of Neurodegenerative Diseases” under the guidance of a leading scientist from University College London (UCL) - professor, Ph.D. Andrey Yuryevich Abramov. The guests got acquainted with the advanced laboratory equipment. For example, a confocal microscope tailored specifically to the needs of the Laboratory is unique in our country.
At the end of the excursion, the guests visited the laboratories opened within the framework of the Summer School “Territory of Success” project (the event “Implementation of pilot projects to update the content and technologies of additional education in priority areas within the framework of the Federal project “Success of every child” of the national project “Education” of the state programme of the Russian Federation "Development of Education"). Laboratories and computer classes of the "Territory of Success" are equipped with the latest technology: 3D printers, laser machines, CNC milling machines, etc. This allows participants to design and immediately create the details of their products.
The culmination of the event was the Awarding Ceremony of the OSU named after I. S. Turgenev research teams with Diplomas. For success in the implementation of projects, the following were recognized:
- Team of the project "Development of intelligent monitoring technology and a prototype of a hardware and software complex for ensuring the security of energy complex facilities", head of the project is Roman Polyakov.
-Team of the project "Mitochondria as a Target in the Mechanism of Neurodegenerative Diseases", the head is Andrey Yuryevich Abramov, co-director Andrey Valerievich Dunaev.

- The team of the Engineering Center for Digital Environment Technologies for Integrated Security: Telecommunications, Communication Facilities and Energy Efficiency, headed by Denis Vladimirovich Danilevich.
The impressive progress achieved during the implementation of the projects is largely due to the young scientists, some of whom are still students. Great interest and thirst for new knowledge is the main incentive for their work.
The work of the Department of Electronics, Radio Engineering and Communication Systems: Mishin Vladislav Vladimirovich, Dontsov Venedikt Mikhailovich, Tyutyakin Alexander Vasilyevich was awarded with Certificates of Honor of the University for the implementation of research projects and training of personnel for enterprises in the region.
Svetlana Yuryevna Bubnova, Valentina Aleksandrovna Osmachkina, Department of Theory and Technologies of Preschool Education, were awarded for the implementation of an innovative educational project: "A step towards a digital information and educational resource for supporting families with young children."
The successes and commitment of the University scientists once again show that the future of science not only in Orel region, but also in Russia is in good hands.
Research within the framework of the Russian Geographical Society grant project
At the Department of Geography, Ecology and General Biology of the Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology, Orel State University, research is being carried out within the framework of the Russian Geographical Society - 2020 grant project (Regional grants of the Russian Geographical Society. Geographical research).
Project title: "Spatio-temporal patterns of erosional transformation of slope landscapes in the Upper Oka basin against the background of climatic changes at the end of the XX - beginning of the XXI century."
Executor - Candidate of Geographical Sciences, Associate Professor Trofimets Lyubov Nikiforovna.
The purpose of the study is to give a quantitative assessment (based on the use of the radiocaesium method) of the spatio-temporal patterns of erosional transformation of slope surfaces in the upper Oka basin from 1986 to the present. During this period, both the moisture conditions and the nature of land use changed: there was a reduction in the plowed areas. At scales 1: 10000 and 1: 200000, author's maps of soil loss due to erosion on slope landscapes will be created.
The project is the result of many years of experimental research carried out at the department with the active participation of OSU students.

On January 25, in Moscow, on the Red Square, a sports student night was held, timed to coincide with the Russian Students Day. The organizers prepared a rich program: a hockey gala match, sports relay races, mass skating, as well as the Battle of the Fans competition. The team of the Student Sports Club "Orel57" became guests of honor of this event, having arrived in the capital in the rank of champions of the last Battle. The students of the Flagship University again had to take part in the battle and defend their title. They coped with this task brilliantly and became the best fans of the country for the second time in a row.
Participation in the meeting of the Association "National Arctic Research and Educational Consortium"
On January 27, 2021 Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev took part in the meeting of the Association "National Arctic Research and Educational Consortium" (NAREC).
During the meeting, the results of the work of the Association in 2020, its roadmap for 2021 and other issues were discussed.
Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev was represented by the Vice-Rector for Scientific and Project-Innovation Activities Borisoglebskaya Larisa Nikolaevna.
Larisa Nikolaevna made a presentation of the project "Control system for the safe landing of a helicopter-type aircraft based on the technology of surface background identification", developed by the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems under the leadership of Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Malyshev V.A. in the framework of the scientific and innovative work direction of the university on the development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation.
The relevance and significance of the project is associated with the increased complexity of delivering people and goods to hard-to-reach areas of the Arctic by all types of land transport, which makes a helicopter-type aircraft one of the most effective means of solving this problem. However, landing a helicopter-type aircraft on unprepared (unequipped, unexplored) sites in conditions of insufficient visibility is the cause of a significant number of aviation accidents (aircraft crashes and disasters). A feature of the project is the development of a helicopter-type aircraft landing control system based on synthetic vision technology, which involves computer synthesis of an image based on information from various sources.
The project "Control system for the safe landing of a helicopter-type aircraft based on the technology of surface background identification" considers the conditions for using a helicopter-type aircraft and the possibility of ensuring a safe landing in conditions of insufficient information content of the cockpit external environment. The study of the properties of the surface background to ensure a safe landing, substantiation and selection of the type of signal of the subsurface sensing radar system for the effective identification of the type of the surface background and the thickness of its layers. Methods for choosing a landing site for a helicopter-type aircraft, methods for remote identification of the state of snow-ice cover have been developed, modeling of a control system for a safe landing of a helicopter-type aircraft based on synthetic vision technology has been carried out.
This development is carried out jointly with “Aviaavtomatika” named after V. Tarasov” JSC. The enterprise manufactures radio-electronic products in the field of avionics:stores management systems, interfacing units, flight data recording systems, operating control for next-generation and modernized combat and civil aircrafts, armored techniques, electric ad electromagnetic actuators, medical techniques.
Based on the results of consideration at the NAREC meeting, the project "Control system for the safe landing of a helicopter-type aircraft based on the technology of surface background identification", developed by the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems, was recommended for presentation at the International Arctic Summit "The Arctic and Offshore Projects: Prospects, Innovation and Regional Development" which will take place in May 2021 in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
Since 2019 OSU named after I.S. Turgeneva has been a member of the Association "National Arctic Research and Educational Consortium".
The National Arctic Research and Educational Consortium is a voluntary association of universities, scientific organizations, enterprises implementing training programs for the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation, conducting research, economic and economic activities in the Arctic territories and on Arctic topics.
The Consortium is focused on creating a common scientific and educational space that provides high-quality information and analytical support for development projects for the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation, including the coordination of scientific and educational activities.
Our foreign students took an online walk around the literary Orel city
Freezing weather did not interfere with an online walk around the literary places of Orel region. It was held on the ZOOM platform for foreign students studying at the Law Institute of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev. The event was initiated by the Theory and History of State and Law Department. It should be noted that the staff of the Institute pays special attention to acquainting students with the history of the city in which they receive education, and conducting local history excursions has already become traditional and is an integral part of working with our foreign students.
These days, the reason for communication was the essay by A.I. Kondratenko - the famous Orel ethnographer and writer - "Literary walk around Orel city". The illustrated guide, published in 2016 by the Kartush publishing house, was performed to the conference participants in a presentation format. Illustrations for the essay were made by junior students of the Art and Graphics Faculty during the summer open-air practice. Plein air is a drawing of landscapes in the open air. Starting to work on a project, students were given the task of depicting specific places or iconic architectural objects of the city associated with its literary past. The practice turned out to be not only useful from a professional point of view, but also educational. In the process of working on the images, the students learned a lot from the history of the city and the lives of the people who made its glory.
The presentation of the book, performed by the head of the Department of Drawing Y.M. Tyutyunova (curator of the project), aroused interest among foreign students. Before their eyes passed places associated with the names of prominent writers of the past: I.S. Turgenev, N.S. Leskov, I.A. Bunin, L.N. Andreev, A.A. Fet and even A.S. Pushkin and S.A. Yesenin, who back in the day visited the city. Passing now along Bolkhovskaya or Komsomolskaya, they may have a different look at these streets. The invariable inspirer of the "immersion" of foreign students in the environment of the city's sights is the associate professor of the Theory and History of State and Law Department A.V. Agaeva. Despite the fact that the guests of our city have already quite well adapted and understand the spoken language, significant assistance in translation was provided by the assistant professor of the Foreign Languages Departmnet I.I. Gulakova.
At the end of the event, the conference participants agreed: despite the forced limitation of "live" communication, distance, in a sense, expands the possibilities of inter-faculty interaction and is able to create a single information field, and even allows to turn over the pages of a bygone era, reminding an old album, following the routes of the classics of literature.

The experience of the Flagship University in the collection of papers dedicated to the 10th International Congress of Conductologists
An article by Alexander Kotov, a medical director of Student Polyclinic in OSU named after I.S. Turgenev, under the title "The introduction of European innovative rehabilitation technologies, in particular the complex method of development of András Pető, into the rehabilitation practice of Russia" was published in the collection of materials dedicated to the 10th International Congress of Conductologists, which will be held from November 27 to December 2, 2020 in Budapest, Hungary.
Conductologist is a specialist with knowledge in the field of pedagogy, medicine, psychology, defectology, speech therapy and physiotherapy exercises. Conductive pedagogy is the process of teaching children and adults with disorders of the central nervous system, restoration of motor, speech and mental functions. Depending on the age, a comprehensive programme reflects the lifestyle and rhythm of a healthy child, including his physical, mental and social needs. The method has received wide recognition all over the world, however, there is currently no specialty of a conductologist in Russia.
OSU named after I.S.Turgenev has been closely cooperating with the Institute named after András Pető (the founder of the method of conductive pedagogy) of the Semmelweis University for three years.
“Currently at Orel State University named after I.S.Turgenev a holistic model of sectoral interaction of social institutions (medical, social and educational institutions, families) in the complex rehabilitation of persons with cerebral palsy in Orel region was built, as well as the provision of scientific and methodological assistance in their rehabilitation support. In this model, collaboration is an integral part of the entire rehabilitation process. The constructed model of rehabilitation of children with partner institutions is based on the method of conductive pedagogy borrowed from European experience. This experience was adopted at the András Pétö faculty of Semmelweis University in Budapest (Hungary). The origin of conductive education lies in the work of Professor András Pétö, who founded the National Institute of Movement Therapy, Faculty of András Pétö, Semmelweis University. This faculty is a member and close collaborator of the European Conductive Association (ECA), which is an officially registered body dedicated to ensuring the quality of academic preparation and the performance of conductive work in the EU. ECA is involved in many EU projects and partnerships aimed at improving and disseminating conducting education. Several European projects and partnerships have been implemented with ECA support. It is very important for us to study and use the results and experience of the ECA, because it can help us to increase our competence in the field of Conductive education,”- an extract from the article by Alexander Kotov.
Currently, the Flagship university is testing the method of conductive pedagogy at the site of the research laboratory "Innovative technologies for the complex rehabilitation of patients of various profiles." The laboratory was opened on the basis of the Institute of Pedagogy and Psychology in cooperation with the Medical Institute, the Social Faculty and the Student Polyclinic.

International Conference "Ivannikov Readings" has started at OSU named after I.S. Turgenev
An International Conference “Ivannikov Readings” was held at the Flagship University. It is dedicated to the development of innovative technologies in the field of system programming. A two-day meeting of leading industry experts is held annually on the initiative of the Institute for System Programming of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ISP RAS) in memory of Academician V.P. Ivannikov, an outstanding scientist, founder of the Institute. In 2020, the conference is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of his birth. The conference is supported by the international association IEEE and IEEE Computer Society.
The conference began with a planar session. The moderator was Maxim Safonov, Professor of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA). Maksim Sergeevich noted that despite the difficult time, they decided not to give up the readings and, according to the tradition, gather to exchange views in one of the regions of Russia.
The First Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of Orel Region Valentina Nordstrem made a welcoming speech:
“Good afternoon, dear guests of honor and participants of the International Conference “Ivannikov Readings”! In the name and on behalf of the Governor of Orel Region, Andrey Evgenievich Klychkov, I am glad to welcome you all to the hospitable Orel land. Congratulations on the start of a major event within the walls of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev. Today's conference is dedicated to a highly topical issue. We are well aware that in the age of information technology, the success of the state and society directly depends on how quickly and efficiently we get involved in global digitalization processes, master information technologies, which are becoming the main driver of Russia's development. It is no coincidence that this topic is widely discussed with the involvement of the scientific community, experts, representatives of government and business. This is confirmed by our today's meeting and such a representative composition of its participants. Particular attention is paid to the development of information technologies in the instructions of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Large-scale tasks are set in the national programme "Digital Economy of the Russian Federation".
Valentina Ivanovna noted that in accordance with the instructions of the President of the country, the Government of Orel Region seeks to cover all spheres of the economy and public life with a digitalization programme. First of all to develop the digital economy and transfer public administration to an innovative platform.
“Our region has a strong scientific and production potential in the field of innovative technologies. For example, the IT cluster of Orel region currently consists of more than 50 companies implementing their own innovative and applied developments. We are justifiably proud of the region's research and production potential and opportunities in terms of training specialists in the field of information technology. These are more than 400 highly qualified specialists in programming, robotics, neural network technologies, more than 2 thousand specialists with key competencies of the digital economy. This amount is produced annually. Dear colleagues, we have no doubt that the scientific readings in Orel, your initiatives and expert assessment will help to develop new effective proposals for solving large-scale tasks aimed at further digitalizing the economy," summed up the First Deputy Prime Minister of Orel Region Government.
Director of ISP RAS, Academician of RAS Harutyun Avetisyan noted that this year the forum is being held in Orel for a reason:
“Of course, there are much less participants than in previous years, but, nevertheless, the forum took place. So why in Orel? We have been connected with this city for a long time. There is a wonderful university here, which is well equipped technically. I see the eyes of students and staff alike, and the results are impressive. The idea of "Ivannikov Readings" is not only to simply travel around the regions of Russia and hold such an event. Many years ago we came to the conclusion that it is impossible to concentrate all the leading technologies only in large cities. There should also be centers in regions where a critical mass of specialists can also meet, discuss and share in the common cause. Only together we will be able to answer any challenges ”.
Also, the planar meeting was attended by the deputy of the State Duma Olga Pilipenko:
“I would like to greet all the participants in this event, distinguished academicians, those who aspire to become them, ministers, guests and participants. It is very important for us to host such a significant conference in the region. Today we are talking not only about what problems will be solved, but, first of all, we must deal with the transfer of knowledge that has been accumulated in the best competencies, regions and institutions. The transfer should be done quickly enough, because technology is developing rapidly. In this regard, the State Duma even introduced such a new term as “forced digitalization”. Much attention is paid to digitalization both in the Government of the Russian Federation and in the State Duma. In particular, they discuss issues of new tax maneuvers for Russian IT companies, as well as the absence of VAT. These are really very serious support measures. Today at the conference sites there are representatives of companies, business representatives in dialogue, we will find new opportunities to use the potential of our scientists and commercialize in the future. OSU named after I. S. Turgenev is seriously positioning the region in the areas of programming,IT, and informatization.Historically, since the late 60s and 70s, Orel has been the largest region in instrument making. Personnel continue to be trained, but in a completely new aspect. I would like to wish you success in the work of today's "Ivannikov Readings".
Head of the FSO Academy Pavel Malyshev:
“I am glad to greet all the leaders and the young generation of researchers. This conference demonstrates to us that the IT environment is getting younger. It is nice that the event has grown to an international format and it is doubly pleasant that all this is taking place on Orel land. Today, FSO Academy, as in previous years, is ready to present the results of its research. We are all looking forward to round tables, reports, exchange of views. Once again, I would like to thank you for organizing such an event."
Ruslan Novikov, General Director of the Argumenty i Fakty Publishing House(Arguments and Facts), spoke about the increased trust in traditional media:
“Recently, we have seen a new level of loyalty and trust in traditional media. We received confirmation from a sociological survey. The level is 55%. It is very nice. This reflects our daily work, what we are fighting for. It seems to me that the time has come to think about projects that are aimed at the future and the future is not pandemic, but post-pandemic. This is a very important moment for us news people."
Deputy Head of Roskachestvo Ilya Loevsky:
“In 2015, the Government of the Russian Federation decided to establish an innovative quality institute in order to deal with control issues. We carry out large-scale research and analyze information on various quality issues very carefully and technologically. We analyze products and services. Speaking of trust, to date, Roskachestvo has achieved impressive results in a short time. Trust in our research and consumer education articles reaches over 70%.”
Dmitry Shevtsov, Head of the Department of FSTEC(Federal Service for Technical and Export Control) of Russia:
“I would like to greet everyone on behalf of our service. I am very grateful that we were invited to participate in this conference. Naturally, we could not pass by such an event. The introduction of information technologies in various spheres of life, in addition to benefits, also introduces problems in information security. Therefore, our service is taking the most active steps to comply with the new information security requirements. I will dwell on this in more detail within the framework of the round table. I'll tell you about our innovations and achievements."
Member of the Orel Region Government - Head of the Department of Information Technologies of Orel Region Alexander Pilipenko said that the experience of holding such a large forum for Orel region is for the first time:
“Large forums are held in many regions, many representatives of regions and enterprises gather. We want not only to hold this event, but also to show that Orel can become a center of attraction not only for local, but for IT professionals from other regions. This is the first time we have such a conference. We consider it successful. It was important for me to check if we can organize a reception for so many guests from other regions and is it really possible to create interaction between companies and take their interest in our students. And so far we have succeeded. This is our first step, and by the second we will have even more experience."
After the end of the plenary session, the participants of the International Conference "Ivannikov Readings" went on an excursion to the Scientific and Technological Center of Biomedical Photonics and to the Department of Automated Control Systems and Cybernetics of OSU named after I.S.Turgenev.
Then the Forum programme was continued by round tables on the topics “Medicine of the future”, “The asymmetric response. Information wars of the future ”,“Cybersecurity”.
28 volunteers from Orel Regional Volunteer Resource Center of Orel State University named after I.S.Turgenev helped to organize this event.

“Today is the defining and final day, on which the winners and prize-winners will be revealed. This Championship is significant. For the first time such a major tournament is being held on the basis of the workshops. Students were looking forward to the WorldSkills to show their skills. The University has a fairly high level in all five competencies. We exchange opinions with certified experts who came to us. Some are watching the process online. Everyone says that in the finals the participants of the Flagship University will make a worthy competition with the contestant from other regions."
The high level of the Championship is also noted by the main expert of the competence "Network Systems Administration" Alexey Kotsyurzhinsky:
“I think the Championship is going well. In my opinion, the participants show good results, but there is always something to strive for and where to grow. Competitions for many will be the starting point for a bright career future. Employers are present at the sites and they look closely at each contestant as a potential employee."
All participants actively worked on assignments and projects without interruption for conversations, but we still managed to communicate with some during the break.
“For me, the Championship is a test of my knowledge and acquisition of new skills. I'v been working up to this for three years. All the mistakes that I make, I will definitely take into account and try to fix it next time. Now we are developing an information system according to the terms of reference. It says that OSU named after I.S. Turgenev asked to develop a system where teachers and students would communicate. You need to write a technical task and develop a website design. When applying for a job, I will proudly write on my resume that I have participated in the WorldSlills competitions"
Chief competence expert Denis Ryzhenkov states that there are plans to move forward. You need to try not to lower the bar.
Marina Pravdina, an invited certified expert of the union in the competence “SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS FOR BUSINESS ON THE “1C:ENTERPRISE 8” PLATFORM” and deputy director of the “1C”company, says that the task is based on a fairly typical business task that is found in most enterprises and organizations in Russia ...
“There is a customer who needs to create an information system, keep records and make a report on certain selections; it is also necessary to create a mobile application for the convenience of work. It's like life here - do what will work. This is the main criterion in evaluating the work,” said Marina Pravdina.
Vladislav Bukhvostov, chief expert of the competence “Development of mobile applications”: "Participants need to develop a mobile application based on the available layouts. Yesterday and today, the guys were actively working on an application for managing a film library with the function of searching for films, viewing information, registering an account and watching a movie. The application must be user-friendly so that the user absolutely does not have any questions about how to work with it."
This year one of the new competencies is “TEACHING IN SECONDARY PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION ORGANIZATIONS”. There is a real need for this profession. In Orel region and neighboring regions, there are about 70 SECONDARY PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION ORGANIZATIONS. The question of staffing is quite tough in them.
“We plan to develop this competence further. While it is presentation, a number of adjustments are determined that need to be made. We will observe how our participants realize themselves in the profession,” noted Elena Kuznetsova, the main expert of the competence.
The results of the IV qualifying Championship according to the WorldSkills standards in OSU named after I.S. Turgenev will be found out very soon. Stay tuned for updates on the site!
The first competition day of the IVth qualifying Championship according to the WorldSkills standards in OSU named after I.S. Turgenev
On September 21, the sites of the Fourth WorldSkills Championship (OGUSkills2020) began operating at Orel State University. In total, 11 competencies are presented. The correspondent of the Information Policy Department of the Flagship university managed to visit some of them and talk to experts and participants.
Svetlana Stepanova, director of the coordination center "Young Professionals" of the Flagship university, spoke about the current Championship:
“Our university has been participating in the WorldSkills movement since 2017. Today the Fourth Championship is taking place within the walls of the Flagship university. Fruitful and systematic work helped to achieve great success. We annually take part in the National Finals of the interuniversity championships according to the WorldSkills standards, demonstrating the high level of preparation of our students, as evidenced by the won gold, silver and bronze medals. Every year we try to expand the list of competencies and develop in the existing ones, taking on the challenges of the present time. Participants in the WorldSkills championships are becoming highly demanded specialists in the labor market not only in Orel region, but also in other regions of Russia. It is a great experience to be a part of such a momentous event. Young people begin to understand their profession better when faced with solving professional problems in real time. Also, the participants have all the chances for career growth. The WorldSkills Standards Championships are a platform to demonstrate highly qualified personnel to employers, where they are able to choose the best of the best."
Polina Bogdanova, a participant of the “Hotel Receptioning” competence, shared her impressions after the competitions of the first day:
“I have never heard of this Championship before. On September 1, an announcement was made for us freshmen and it was said that we could also participate. I thought this was a great opportunity to approve myself. Today, behind reception desk, I demonstrated the work of the receptionist of the GRINN hotel. I had to communicate with a foreign guest in English, issue an invoice for the guest, register a lost item and accept a reservation by phone."
This year, for the first time, competitions in the “Organization of excursion services” competence were organized at the Flagship university.
“For students, this is an incredible impression and an unforgettable experience. Now they feel like professionals in the field they have chosen. The competence "Organization of excursion services" was announced at the university for the first time. We are the pioneers. We are a little scared, but it's fantastically interesting,” said the chief expert Veronika Kozlova.
“I represent the competence “Organization of excursion services”. Emotions are simply overwhelming! This is an unforgettable experience for me. Today I have the opportunity to feel like a real guide,” Dmitry Terekhin, the participant of the competitions, said .
Dmitry also notes that he would very much like to be among the winners in his competence in order to become the participant of the Final of the national interuniversity championship.
Last year, students of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev were awarded a gold medal in "Entrepreneurship competency". Olga Firsova, the main expert of the competence, does not hide the fact that it would be great to repeat this success and parade our skills nationwide again.
“We have team competence. Five teams of two participants each take part. It is performed in accordance with the Test Project module. First, the participants develop a business plan and then practice their skills for each module. They must present their projects, which are being developed in real time,” Olga Nikolaevna said.
Another competence presented at the site of the Flagship university is "Teaching Technology".
Chief expert Valentina Tenetilova: “This competence is presented by future Technology teachers. Basically, among them are students of 2-3 years of study. This is not a team competence. There is an individual fight among the five participants. The tasks are very interesting and have a professional bias. The participants must overcome themselves and adequately defend the project, demonstrating their artistry."
When asked whether it is difficult to perform tasks within the competence, participant Marina Belolitskaya notes that she likes what she does.
“There is a methodology in evidence in the assignments. I need to structure everything, consistently outline the stages and not forget to work out safety techniques. My project is called "Puppet Bird". This is a toy that helps to develop fine motor skills,” said Marina.
All experts note that the epidemiological situation could not but affect the preparation technology for the Fourth WorldSkills Championship (OGUSkills2020). But, nevertheless, active work and interaction with the participants contributed to the demonstration of a high level of knowledge and skills at the current championship.
In the next post, we will tell you about other interesting competencies of the championship, stay tuned!

Training of employees of Cell physiology and pathology laboratory as part of the implementation of "Megagrant"
Last week, in Cell physiology and pathology laboratory, as part of "Megagrant" on the topic "Mitochondria as a Target in the Mechanism of Neurodegenerative Diseases", under the guidance of a Carl Zeiss employee, an in-depth training of laboratory staff was held to work on the Carl Zeiss LSM 900 Airyscan 2 confocal microscope. The basic principles of work on this equipment, the capabilities of specialized software were considered and demonstrated, and a number of experimental studies were carried out within the framework of the specifics of the laboratory.
The video (https://youtu.be/yDxeMTEbZ-8) shows the results of a study of the primary culture of cells of the cerebral cortex by confocal microscopy using two fluorescent probes - MitoTracker Green, which selectively penetrates into mitochondria, and Hoechst 33342, which specifically binds to nuclear DNA. Thanks to the combination of volumetric scanning modes and the study of the process in time, it becomes possible to assess the functional state of mitochondria by the dynamics of the entire mitochondrial network of the cell.The student of Youth Specialized Research School (USNISH) of Orel State University is a co-author of a study published in the SCOPUS world scientific work base
Research work "Synthesis, Microstructure, Dielectric and Ferroelectric Properties of (Na,Bi,K)TiO3 Ceramics" was published in the scientific journal "Surface. X-ray synchrotron and neutron research "(2020, No. 7, pp. 18-22), included in the world database of publications "Scopus". In addition, this paper was published in English in the "Journal of Surface Investigation: X-ray, Synchrotron and Neutron Techniques" (2020, Volume 14, No. 4, pp. 663-667). The unique fact of successful student engagement in serious scientific research becomes known to the whole world. The authors of the paper are a team from several educational organizations:
- Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics
- Lomonosov Moscow State University
- Sirius Educational Center
- Orel State University
- National research University MIET
An Orel shcoolgirl Anastasia Efremova who is a graduate of Youth Specialized Research School (USNISH) "Fundamentals of nanotechnology" of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev is among the authors of this paper. During two sessions she studied at Sirius Educational Center on the "Nanotechnology" direction acording to the program "Big Challenges" (partner of the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs (RUSNANO group).

Surface of piezoceramic under the microscope SMM-2000
Yuri Khripunov, one of the authors, director of the Resource Model Center for Futher Education of Children of OSU named after I.S.Turgenev, head of USNISH "Fundamentals of Nanotechnology" spoke in more detail about the progress of the study:
“We have become part of a team that is solving the problem of developing modern piezoceramic materials and refining the properties of already existing piezoceramics. We got involved in this work because we set the task, together with schoolchildren, to enter into a collaboration and work out schemes and opportunities for schoolchildren to participate in such communities. And since ceramics is the basis of motors and scanners of probe microscopes and other precision technology, we decided to work in this direction, since this is accompanied by modern engineering. Here our partners came to our aid, they are the Proton plant (Zelenograd) and the National Research University MIET, who had already worked on this and invited us to cooperate. We were asked to study the surface of the resulting materials. We carried out this work in a team with a teacher T. A. Koksharova and a schoolboy D. R. Kashapov at Sirius; researcher Artyom Loginov from Lomonosov Moscow State University; a scientist, designer, teacher and initiator of attracting schoolchildren to scientific research Boris Loginov from Zelenograd MIET and JSC PROTON Plant; and also together with me as a teacher - with schoolgirl A. A. Efremova, twice a participant in the July scientific and technological program "Big Challenges" in 2018 and 2019 in the direction of "Nanotechnology", organized in cooperation with FIOP (RUSNANO group). Together we carried out studies of the surface of the samples, their morphology on probe microscopes. From the number of frames received, a statistical sample was made: on the one hand, all frames and photographs that need to be submitted to this work, on the other hand, we provided a set of data from their analysis that could be further systematized."
Classes in the probe microscopy laboratory at Sirius Educational Center, Sochi
Boris Loginov notes: “Our cooperation with Orel University has been developing since 2008 and has shown its effectiveness, especially in the direction of joint development of new educational systems and programs in the field of nanotechnology. In my university, special infrastructural solutions for equipping and organizing the educational process are being developed, which we adapt from our scientific departments, research laboratories and even production workshops, which allows us to formulate tasks for children, immersing them in the problems of the entire industry and making them active participants process throughout the country. The publication with the participation of schoolgirl from Orel was a long-awaited proof of the effectiveness of our work in this direction, although there is still a lot to be done "
Yuri Khripunov: “In general, building such collaborations is difficult, but interesting. The most important thing here when isolating tasks for schoolchildren is to build an infrastructure model for solving a common problem (necessary equipment) at first, and then understand what students can do and how long it will take them. And then comes the planning and construction of the scheme of project and / or research activities. An example of such cooperation in the development of an infrastructure model with a wide functionality is the interaction with JSC PROTON Plant
Boris Loginov: “When developing educational equipment, you always need to have feedback from users and understand what tasks they are doing. On the one hand, this allows us to improve the production itself and products, on the other hand, to form "turnkey" educational complexes with wide functionality, including our curriculum and educational content, as well as connect educational programs. An example is the sites on which the research * and the modules of the FIEP model program were carried out, some of which were used as components of the educational route of schoolchildren. It should be noted that the Smart Park of the city of Zelenograd, created on the basis of our university MIET, is testing and implementing our educational programs, including with the participation of schoolchildren in serious scientific research with their co-authorship in scientific publications. After mastering such curricula, schoolchildren are easily included in the scientific and design work that follows in their lives, while our graduation from the probe microscopy and nanotechnology program alone is about 400 students per year, which indicates the possibility of serious scalability of our programs ".
* The research was carried out using scanning probe microscopes SMM-2000 manufactured by JSC "Plant PROTON" (Zelenograd). Educational and research classes based on these microscopes, along with the corresponding educational programs for schoolchildren, are already available in many federal and regional educational centers, including Sirius Educational Center, Sochi, in Orel region - in two regional educational centers - (USNISH) "Fundamentals of nanotechnology" and Вudgetary general education institution of Orel region "Constellation of Orel", and these classes continue to grow for a deeper understanding of the basics of nanotechnology.

New Level of Training in the Field of IT Technology
At Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev, training in continuing education programs according to Worldskills Russia standards has come to an end. For two weeks, the participants intensively studied the theory and immediately applied the acquired knowledge in practice, got acquainted with new technologies for teaching special disciplines according to Worldskills Russia standards. The final stage was the solemn presentation of certificates of advanced training that took place the day before.
Let us recall that not so long ago, the Flagship University won a grant under the federal program “Young Professionals” of the national project “Education” to equip 5 workshops on the basis of the faculty of secondary vocational education in the following competencies: “Network and system administration”, “IT solutions for business on the 1C platform: Enterprise 8”, “Web-design and development”, “Development of computer games and multimedia applications”, “Development of mobile applications”. Three of them hosted the continuing education program for teachers and masters of vocational training at vocational educational institutions of Orel.
“... The creation of these workshops on the basis of the Flagship University brings specialists to a new level of continuous training: conducting career guidance, implementing additional professionally oriented programs for students in IT areas. It will become possible to integrate the educational modules of new competencies in the educational programs of secondary vocational and higher education. Workshop sites will allow for the implementation of various joint projects with the employer, who will be able to choose the best students for employment at his own enterprise based on the results of demonstration exams. Now we are talking about a truly new level of training on a modern material and technical base that can provide this. To implement such a major breakthrough, personnel are needed that can educate students by international standards, provide professional knowledge and promote love for the future profession. Therefore, the continuing education program that we developed for teaching staff and masters of vocational training is primarily aimed at teaching modern training technologies according to Worldskills Russia standards and the methodology of the demonstration exam. These people will transmit knowledge in these areas and together with us will train highly qualified specialists,”- said Alena Uvarova, director of the Innovation Policy Department at OSU named after I.S. Turgenev.
According to participants, the continuing education program, according to Worldskills Russia standards, opened up new directions for them in the implementation of their professional skills:
“It is very pleasant that the University provides an opportunity to improve their skills, to discover new knowledge. I am a teacher of the special discipline “Accounting”, the knowledge gained on working with the platform “1C: Enterprise 8” will greatly help in further teaching. Many thanks to the University for the opportunity”, - said Natalia Burdykina, a teacher at the Orel College of Railway Transport named after V.A. Lapochkin.
“I studied under the continuing education program “Digital Literacy (according to Worldskills Russia standards in the competence “Network and System Administration”). In my opinion, such courses are very useful both for continuing education of teachers and for introducing new professional modules in student learning programs. I think that the courses will benefit me in my professional work, ”- said Svetlana Makhova, teacher at the Mtsensk branch of the OSU named after I. S. Turgenev.
The Worldskills Russia advanced training program is only the initial stage of the grant implementation. Very soon, workshops will be opened, which will become the center for training highly qualified specialists in the field of information and communication technologies. Here, continuing education programs will be implemented, the introduction of new educational modules in open source software programs, seminars and master classes will be held, and, of course, preparations will be made for Worldskills Russia championships. In spring, competitions for five new competencies are planned at the University championship.

Svetlana Aronova, Director of the Department of International Relations, addressed words of welcome to the participants: “We are very pleased that we have such an opportunity to open this Research and Educational Center at the University. The creation of the laboratory is the result of regular cooperation, which began in 1995; when the first project “TEMPUS-TACIS” was going on to create the economic department of OSU, which later grew into the second pre-project in 1997, when Philippe Burny joined the work. It was the lucky moment thanks to which the project won. As far as I know, our project is considered one of the most successful in Russia, and ranks second in terms of success in the entire history of TEMPUS-TACIS existence ... I would like to recall that for a long time the cooperation continued within the framework of academic mobility, some conferences, as part of the ERASMUS Credit Mobility program, in which the Belgian professor was giving lectures to our students these days. It is important to note that scientific contracts for all the years of cooperation have increased, acquired new qualities, and accordingly, interested groups of people have arisen who are interested in the same problems, which, despite the difference in development, in income levels and in output standards, still are common to both countries."
The grand opening of the REC began with cutting the red ribbon. Philippe Burny and Yevgeny Alyokhin were granted the honorary right, since they act as the heads of the Scientific and Educational Center each for his University.
During his visit, Professor Burny lectured to students of the Institute of Economics and Management for two days.
Then the floor was taken by Yevgeny Alyokhin, the head of the REC “Mirror laboratory” for studying consumption standards: regions, industries, digital environment. He explained that the laboratory will have a “mirror” character, saying that its idea is very simple. “The idea is not only to coordinate the work of our two institutions, OSU named after I.S. Turgenev and Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, University of Liege, but to make the work of our universities closer. In fact, it is assumed that this will be a single laboratory, but divided into two parts. One part works here in Orel, and it is me, who do this part, and the second part will be in Belgium in Gembloux, and this part will be headed by Philippe Burny. We have already talked about the possibilities of coordinating our work, agreed on which research areas will be developed. In addition, since it is REC, we agreed on what educational resources we will continue to create together.”
Phillippe Buny, in his turn, expressed a great desire to engage in regional development in his region: “... We want to stress on regional development, and we want to collect data on this topic and compare data on the Orel region and data on the Walloon region (Belgium). This is a kind of comparative research. We will focus on sustainable rural development and environmental protection. We need economic, social and environmental data on environmental. For example, we are very interested in organic farming and the organic food market. We would very much like to collect statistics on initial research. ”
Alexander Stetsenko and HO Thi Minh Hop thanked their colleagues for their fruitful work, expressing deep respect for the work they did together, emphasizing that there will be not less interesting cooperation ahead.
At the end of the event, Svetlana Aronova, on behalf of the rector of the University, Olga Pilipenko, thanked the guests for their visit, expressing hope for further cooperation and that the creation of the “mirror laboratory” would become another successful joint project.

Translational medicine. Experience of scientific research in clinical practice” took place at Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev.
The Conference began with the exhibition of OSU scientific library called “About the past for the future”. The participants and guests of the Conference got acquainted with the medical literature of the late XIX and early XX centuries. Great interest was caused by lifetime editions of famous medical scientists such as I. M. Sechenov, I. I. Mechnikov, I. P. Pavlov and many others. In addition, the structural units of the Flagship University also took part in the exhibition. Many of them presented their developments, which were discussed as part of their speech at the Conference.
According to the results of the preliminary calculation, more than 500 participants registered as attendees of the Conference. Such a large number of people barely fit on the largest site of the University - the Assembly Hall of the Fundamental Library.
“I want to congratulate everyone on this important event in the history of our Medical Institute, I am confident that this Conference will contribute to the further development of medical education, science and practice in Orel region. I want to wish you all successful and fruitful work, interesting and useful communication!", welcomed Irina Snimshchikova, director of the Medical Institute.
“Good afternoon, dear guests, colleagues. On behalf of the University management, I am glad to welcome all of you within our walls at such an outstanding conference. Almost always, experts in a certain field believe that their business is the most important thing. Without builders there would be no houses, without machine builders, whom I myself am, there would be no automation and various mechanisms, structures. But in fact, it is simply impossible to compete with doctors. It is impossible to live without medicine. Such an event, I believe, is of particular importance for our University, for our region. I want to wish an interesting work to all the conference participants! ”– said Sergey Radchenko, Vice-Rector for Scientific and Technological Activity and Academic Personnel Audit.
The possibility of developing translational medicine is the “competitive” advantage of the Flagship University. The fact is that the Medical Institute is a part of the University and gets the opportunity to receive a synergistic effect from cooperation with a large number of specialists in various areas. If we talk about numbers, there are currently more than 300 fields of study at the University, which almost completely cover the professional pool.
The first brainchildren of such a synergistic effect already exist. Thus, the International Quality of Life Laboratory was created at the University, which united humanitarians, physicians, and biologists under the guidance of the Nobel Prize Winner Riccardo Valentini. We should also mention the successes of Research and Development Center of Biomedical Photonics in the field of using the method of laser Doppler flowmetry, which allows non-invasive diagnosis of a wide range of diseases.
The Flagship University has so much to say its colleagues. But OSU experts is always learning and trying to progress in the most relevant areas of translational medicine. That is why the Conference Program included the following workshop sessions:
• Current issues of obstetrics & gynaecology;
• Current issues of clinical medicine;
• Current issues of immunology and experimental medicine;
• Current issues of robotics in medicine;
• Translational technologies in medicine;
• Current issues of the organization of health care, training of medical personnel and medical education;
• Current issues of pharmacology, pharmacognosy and pharmacoeconomics.
The second day of the Conference will be devoted to young scientists scientific research - two sections are organized for them, in which students, graduate students and residents will present their reports to "senior colleagues" and receive feedback. There is also a poster session of young scientists in the hall of the Fundamental Library.
The Conference will end with a Round Table In Memory of I.A. Andreev. The Faculty members will once again recall the first director of the Medical Institute, will tell the listeners about the formation and development of one of the largest structural subdivisions of the Flagship University.
