The February issue of The HSE Look is focused on how HSE makes its education model more flexible in response to global transformations, and two Academic Supervisors of English-taught programmes share their experience in an interview. The HSE Look also presents a new series of public events for discussions on philosophy, and the upcoming visits of guest scholars and lecturers to different HSE departments, as well as the open call for funding their visits.
Dirk Meissner, Professor at the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge and the Academic supervisor of the Master’s Programme ‘Governance of Science, Technology and Innovation’, told The HSE Look about its development and achievements.
Joint efforts tend to bring better and more interesting results: that’s why the School of Philosophy has launched its Colloquium meetings where HSE faculty (both internationally and locally recruited) and visiting scholars will be presenting and discussing their research.

The following visits are scheduled for February, March and early April 2017. If you are interested in this programme and would like to know details on how to submit a proposal, please, consult your department or firstname.lastname@example.org.
