  • UKRATOP logo1

    Within the Project “Topological order of electrons in solids: New materials, Phenomena & application Concepts (UKRATOP)” which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), we invite applications for several scholarships available for young Ukrainian researchers (MSc students, PhD students, and PostDocs) to support joint research of Kyiv Academic University (KAU) and IFW Dresden/TU Dresden. The applications should be submitted before May 15, 2019. The UKRATOP selection workshop scheduled on May 28, 2019 at KAU.

  • APSS4newsOn April 24-26, 2019, the Kyiv Academic University organizes the Applied Physics Student School which is aimed to demonstrate the advantages of researcher career in physics for the youngest students, the bachelors and masters. The School is organized as a satellite to the KAU Science Conference and the program (will be published soon) features lectures of well recognized Ukrainian and international experts.

    The students are encouraged to present their research results during the open poster session. Тhe authors of the best selected presentations, in particular, will be awarded by excursions to the IFW Dresden, within the UKRATOP project.

  • KAUSciConf19 600x300

    April 22-23, 2019: KAU SciConf 2019 is organized by Kyiv Academic University as a part of the 4th Alumni Forum of KB MIPT / KAU. 

    KAU SciConf 2019 is an International Interdisciplinary Applied Science & Business Conference. It covers Applied Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computing as well as Science and Business relations with the idea to demonstrate the advantages of physical research education for problem solving ability and personal success.
