As the new academic year kicked off, copies of Skoltech’s new White Paper, “Technologies for the Restoration and Enhancement of Human Brain Resources”, were delivered to university libraries. Skoltech voiced hope that the new paper would be useful in preparing the brain basic research program announced by President of RAS Alexander Sergeev on September 29.
Prepared by Skoltech’s Analytical Department of Science & Technology Development in collaboration with leading scientists and experts, the paper covers a wide array of topics at the forefront of neuro science and technology along with real-life applications. 300 copies of the paper came off the press at the end of March.
This is the fifth paper in the Department’s White Paper Series called “Public Analytical Papers”. Papers in the series include: “Advanced Manufacturing Technologies” (2015), “Advancement of Photonics in Russia” (2016), “Cutting-edge Oil and Gas Development Technologies and Trends” (2017), “IoT Market Outlook” (2019), and “Technologies for the Restoration and Enhancement of Human Brain Resources” (2020).
Each paper typically comprises two parts: the first one deals with economics, politics, market evolution and national policies with regard to technology areas in question and is based on inputs from field experts and businesses operating in the relevant market segments. The second part focuses on specific cases, providing in-depth analysis of frontier research areas, such as neuro science and biomedical technology.
“The White Paper Series serves an educational purpose, offering a unique genre of writing that combines economic and science policy research with expert analysis of advanced science as seen by top scientists. We made it our mission to acquaint broad audiences with the prospects of science and technology areas pursued at Skoltech. White Papers are broadly distributed among research organizations, universities, ministries, and development institutions. They can also be used as handbooks in the teaching process,” says Department Head Irina Dezhina.
Copies of the new paper are already available to users at Skoltech’s partner universities and participants to industry events. The e-version of the paper can be downloaded through the Department page on Skoltech’s website (in Russian). Negotiations are underway with LitRes about including the paper in the provider’s audiobook collection.
On October 22, Philipp Khaitovich, a professor at the Skoltech Center for Neurobiology and Brain Restoration (CNBR), will deliver a lecture, “Evolution and the human brain”, followed by a presentation of the new paper at the Skoltech Lecture Hub at ARHE.
