Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Another New Year is about to come, ands just like the passing one it is going to be full of bright events, meetings with interesting people, new achievements and victories. I stay sure of that as the entire huge academic family will never reduce the pace just like they will never stop at where they have advanced so far.

Now, looking back, we will get surprised seeing how much we have done within this year – breakthrough results in organic chemistry, IT, food biotechnology, nanomaterials, several large conferences and even the huge Student Spring Festival.




This year has brought us several prestigious grant awards, including that from the Russian Research Foundation, as well as we have had dozens of articles by our experts published in most respectable journals all over the world. More than a few of our students and young researchers have won numerous awards at various contests, and I am sure I am within my fullest right to say that our team and every single member of that does have a lot to be proud of!

The year 2018 has improved NCFU’s position and image both in Russia and abroad – we have joined the top 30 universities in the QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) ratings out of the 250 best universities of the BRICS countries, and we are still on running 19 priority projects to promote the strategic development of our university. I would like to express my gratitude to the entire staff for the contribution that every single of you has done. I am grateful for your capacity to join effort and never stay indifferent through tough times. And I am happy to wish each of you a lot of health, mutual understanding and a lot of warm time with your closest ones!

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!
