Charitable Programs for Science and Education
The Foundation focuses its support for science on fundamental physics. After winning places in the Foundation's programs, dozens of young scientists and scholars have the opportunity to continue their research and training at home in Russia.
The competitively based program gives young scientists working in different areas of physics an opportunity to participate in short-term thematic programs of the world's leading scientific and educational institutions that specialize in organizing programs in fundamental physics.
Over 450 conferences and seminars on physics have been held with the financial support of the Dynasty Foundation.
This program aims to help young mathematicians pursue mathematical research at home in Russia.
In 2011, the Foundation started a support program for conferences on mathematics directed at supporting small high-level international conferences in Russia.
One of the goals of the program is integrating young Russian biologists into the international system of research work.
In a program started in 2012, the Dynasty Foundation supports Russian biologists who won the competition to participate in practical courses organized by the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and European Molecular Biology Organization.
The first molecular and theoretical biology school was held at the Pushchino RAS Scientific Center laboratories
13–28 August 2012.
The goal of the competition is to increase the quality of teaching computer sciences, mathematics, and physics at Russian colleges and broaden scientific perspective and professional contacts for senior undergraduates, graduate students, and young teachers.
Competition for Supporting Seasonal Scientific Schools in Biology, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry
The competition is held with the purpose of supporting seasonal scientific schools in biology, mathematics, physics, and chemistry and broadening scientific and professional contacts for students, graduate students, and scientists.
The goal of the program is to assist Russian physicists and mathematicians in making international scientific contacts.
Since the Foundation is focused on getting high school and university students involved in science and scholarship, we also support the most talented teachers in Russia. The key component of this program is a nationwide grant competition open to high school math and science teachers.
This program assists the most promising projects run by organizations that work with gifted children.
In 2008, the Dynasty Foundation supported the creation of a list of experts in physics and astronomy who enjoy the professional trust of their Russian and foreign colleagues.
The Foundation supports the New Economic School (NES), whose goal is to graduate world-class economists who combine a deep knowledge of their discipline with an intimate grasp of the Russian economy.
The Dynasty Foundation supported the creation of a modern demographic research center in 2011.
The main goal of the Center for Demographic Research is to bring the level of demographic research in Russia closer to internationally accepted standards.
The Foundation supports the European University at Saint Petersburg, Russia's leading graduate school for the social sciences.
The Electronic Repository for Russian Historical Statistics operates on the principle of a historical data-hub, bringing together data extracted from various published and unpublished sources in one place, standardised and made accessible online.
This project was completed in 2015
Because one of its goals is to make it possible for internationally recognized Russian scientists to conduct research in Russia, the Foundation provided funds for the creation of a research laboratory in Moscow headed by Professor Yevgeny Nudler.
Competition for Young Scientists' Participation in Conferences and Seasonal Schools in Computer Sciences
This project was completed in 2015
The goal of the competition is to provide an opportunity to participate in seasonal schools and conferences to the best young scientists involved in computer sciences.
This project was completed in 2014
The teacher training directed at developing biology in high school is conducted at the scientific center of Konstantin Severinov's laboratory at the Institute of Gene Biology (RAS) in Moscow.
This project was completed in 2013
The foundation supports the work of scientific groups headed by the competition participants. The groups must include graduate students and/or young scientists under 35.
This project was completed in 2012
The goal of this program is to recruit the most talented high school and university students to careers in science.
This project was completed in 2011
Thanks to the Foundation's joint project with the Institute for Mathematical Science, Imperial College, London, young scholars from Russia and the CIS had the opportunity to do research as postdocs in London.
