anniversary, HSE has published a book - Other Cities
- a collection of stories by the University’s staff about over 80 cities throughout Russia and the rest of the world, where the authors used to live and work, and which directly contributed to their personal and academic paths.

It is no wonder that the end-of-the-year issue of The HSE Look at a research university is about research. In the December issue we give an overview of the Research Productivity Assessment monitoring through an interview with Dmitriy Dagaev. The issue also focuses on the introduction of postdoctoral fellows who have joined the university’s laboratories and centres this academic year, and presents useful personal insights by Tim Jaekel in the column “Discovering HSE and Russia”.
In addition to interviews with international faculty, The HSE Lookis launching a new feature – a column about their life in Russia, what they discover in different cities, and interesting venues at HSE and beyond. If you have an interesting experience to share, please contact us at email@example.com. In this issue, we present a column by Tim Jaekel.
