PSU scholars have systematized information about ethnic autonomies from all the continents: a large-scale map, a database of 150 variables and descriptions of each territory.
The Atlas covers all ethnic regional autonomies existing in the modern world, as well as those disassembled ones from the recent past. In Russia, according to the atlas, there are 32 republics, autonomous areas or regions. Six of them no longer exist on the contemporary map of Russia.
Several teams of SAU EcoOil won Russian Science Foundation grants. One of them was the High-Performance Distributed Systems Lab which presented its project “Mathematical modelling of multiphase multicomponent non-isothermal filtration in deformable porous medium”.
The Center for Stem Cells Technologies was opened at the Institute of Cytology of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
