On April 10-13, 2018 in Moscow, National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE), with the support of the World Bank,will be holding the19th April International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development. The Conference’s Programme Committee is chaired by Professor EvgenyYasin, HSE Academic Supervisor.
On September 14, the Higher School of Economics is again welcoming guests at Moscow’s Gorky Park to celebrate HSE Day – an extraordinary event that has become a tradition of citywide proportions. HSE Day has a lot to offer for everyone and is open to international students and faculty members.
HSE is only 25, so as a young university we love everything, new, fresh and high-tech. Since we are all one big family, it’s time we asked you, as family members, for advice on one key question: what does HSE lack? What should we have that we don’t yet? Have you been struck by something you’ve seen in practice at another university, that we don’t offer, but should? Why reinvent the wheel, if we can rent them, and if we come to like them, we can always keep them. We’ve prepared great prizes for the most interesting initiatives – real bikes!
Run √25, the first fun run organized by HSE, will take place on May 28 at Gorky Park. Our University is now 25 years old, and we’ll run 5 km together to celebrate this anniversary (or rather, our ‘anti-versary’) - along Pushkinskaya Naberezhnaya and Andreevskaya Naberezhnaya, from the Green Theatre to Luzhnetsky Bridge, and back again. Think of it as running from the darkness of ignorance, unbelievable stupidity, and bad grades as fast as we can!
The HSE Look is happy to promote HSE Teaching Excellence programme which gives an opportunity to organize workshops for HSE teachers with colleagues with extensive teaching experience from universities abroad. Such visits aresupported by institutional funding through applications made by academic programmes.The call for applications from HSE degree programmes for HSE Teaching Excellence visits is open until June 1, 2017.
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 email@example.com.
A great number of student associations and clubs at HSE involve students in a variety of activities from historical re-enactment to yachting. Fly HSE, a paragliding club, recently joined the list. The HSE News Service learned how you can get in, the time required to prepare, and whether you can fly in winter.
This is the second time the HSE Extreme Sports Club has organized a trip to Krasnaya Polyana in the month of February. This time, the trip will take place on February 5-12, 2017. Everyone who likes mountains and wants to spend a week in great company is welcome to take part. This year, the participants will be staying close to the ski lifts, which means that they will be the first to ski on fresh snow slopes.
In its 30th issue The HSE Look is focusing on the latest developments in research and teaching strategies at HSE. It provides a brief overview of Strategic Academic Unites and introduces the new post-doc researchers and their topics of interest. Concerning the teaching process, The HSE Look presents a new funding opportunity for inviting colleagues to share the best teaching practices, as well as teaching advice from international faculty members who’ve been at HSE for several years.
