RuSciTech Newsletter – October 2013


October 2013

News of the Russian-Speaking Science and Technology Community

Welcome to the October edition of the RuSciTech Newsletter. As you might be aware, September was rich with conferences and other events, including, the Russian Innovation Week in the USA. We believe that similar events will be taking place in the future in other regions as well – to encourage international collaboration in the area of science and technology. Also, it is good to hear that a number of our Russian-speaking colleagues living outside of Russia have participated in Russian projects and events recently. We are keen to hear about your collaborations with Russian organisations, and we would be happy to feature them on our web site. Our subscription base keeps growing – thank you for joining our Russian-Speaking Science & Technology community. We are always interested in the news and announcements from you – to share your news and achievements with our subscribers. We look forward to hearing from you at:
