Mission Statement

The main objective of this workshop is to foster rich creativity in students’ research works and to encourage students to participate actively in open discussions with their colleagues. This event is a place for the first scientific presentations of the best students of the universities participating in this project. This workshop creates the necessary conditions to keep international scientific contacts at the student level. We do hope that some of students participating in this workshop will tightly collaborate in their future projects.
