Funding from the topics presented by YSU was guaranteed: "Development of flexible gas sensors based on carbon nanotubes and nanocomposite compounds", "Asymmetric organocatalysis synthesis and activity based on azoles", "Development of biosafety capabilities in Armenia." "Mammals as disease vectors", "Metal-resistant bacteria as a means of environmental recovery" and "Establishment of a scientific-educational center for nanostructures modeling and simulations".

In a conversation with us, Yeranuhi Manukyan, Head of the YSU Scientific Policy Department, said that the purpose of the announced competition is to support the creation of new scientific groups and laboratories, as well as to strengthen the existing scientific laboratories or departments.

 

During the event held at YSU Hall after Palyans, the Dean of the Faculty of Law Gagik Ghazinyan greeted those present and said that although the cooperation between the Red Cross and the faculty has a long history, but until now there was no legal document on it.

 

Ghazinyan stressed that the programs envisaged by the memorandum will first of all contribute to the development of humanitarian law at the faculty.

We talked to Mr. Saghyan about his ideas for the development of science in Armenia, the RA draft law on "Higher Education and Science" disputed in the Constitutional Court, the scale of cooperation with universities and the Artsakh Scientific Center.

According to Ashot Saghyan, as a result of optimization, scientific-research, scientific-production, scientific-technological as well as scientific-educational centers can be created. "The process can take place either through the merger of institutes or through the creation of research networks, within which, according to global research directions, research groups will merge and start working."

Ashot Saghyan stated that the academy has traditionally been responsible for basic research, but today the demand is different. "Today, the prospects for economic development, the military-industrial complex, environmental and other global issues require a gradual shift from basic research to applied research. That is, to make sure that the results of basic research go to the field of application and are commercialized. "

According to Ashot Saghyan, we should try to restore and expand international relations. "These relations should not be direct contracts on paper, but mutually beneficial, operating contracts."

 

"Climate change and children. Impact, Rights and Participation ”three-day international conference at YSU Center for European Studies.

The conference, co-organized by the Global Campus for Human Rights, the Higher Living Foundation, UNICEF Armenia, the Austrian Development Agency, ShareMusic & Performing Arts and the Small Theater of Armenia, is organized by the Human Rights Global Campus and YSU Center for European Studies within the framework of a regional master's program in the Caucasus.

 

Arthur Ghazinyan, Head of the YSU Center for European Studies, greeted the participants, emphasizing that the aim of the conference was to unite experts and scientists to discuss climate change on an international scientific format.

YSU Vice-Rector for International Cooperation and Public Relations Arthur Israelyan said that due to modern technologies, it was possible to organize an international conference. Regardless of the circumstances, the scientific field must be active and respond quickly to all problems.

Yerevan State University participated in the project From Theoretical-Oriented to Practical Education in Agrarian Studies (TOPAS) Erasmus+ KA-2. The TOPAS project aims at filling the gap within a common former soviet inherited agricultural sciences higher education system in Ukraine, Armenia and Uzbekistan, introducing and improving vocationally oriented practical programs based on a learning outcomes and competencies approach, targeting new and old graduates, with flexible learning pathways and permeability among the different agrarian management programs, while fostering partnership between universities and stakeholders (farm industry and associations), and practical training in real working environment to provide a better match between job market needs and the qualifications offered.

Progress and performance must be measured to attest a development in the project. With few, but carefully selected indicators, it is possible to get a good overview on the progress and performance.

Among those indicators there are several indicators dealing with satisfaction of key stakeholders – students, teachers and employers. Those indicators of satisfaction are: 1) % of satisfaction from employers and educators with content of new curricula and new key qualifications; 2) % of students’ satisfaction with teaching competences; 3) % of students’ satisfaction with competences acquired; 4) % of teacher’s satisfaction with resources available. The Consortium believed that the best way to gauge how much those stakeholders are content with situation as of today was to resort to qualitative research methods, e. g. surveys.

YSU participation in the project allowed to present results of the study according to project activities. Thus, in the workshops, organized in HEI presented YSU participants expiriens in

  • Distributing classroom study materials one week before the lecture and discussing these with students during the lecture (flipped learning)
  • Distributing between students envelopes with results of assessments related to their written answers to previous questions (peer learning).
  • Using Microsoft Access Management for the management of the information from the agricultural single data base file.
  • The Desktop application has been written in Scala programming language
  • Assessment of teachers activities to organize student centered classes at YSU
  • Restructuring of agricultural economy  education in YSU:   
    Master program in Data Science for Agriculture Business
  • Datacollection for Machinery-Data

Activities of YSU participants presented in workshops organized during project implementation.
