Solar veil and heated jacket. How the Year of Science is changing reality

Field National projects

2021, declared in Russia the Year of Science and Technology, bears concrete results in the form of new revolutionary developments. And their authors are not venerable scientists, but students. To be specific, college graduates who have become participants in the Startup as a Diploma program.

According to the rules of the program, students, already during their studies, participate in the creation of a real business and protect it from potential investors. This thesis format allows for the involvement of graduates from completely different directions in technology entrepreneurship: managers, programmers, biologists can be in the same team. & Nbsp;

Washable electronic textiles & nbsp;

For example, Olavi Sikki, Undergraduate Faculty of Technology Management and Innovation, ITMO University creates a startup for the production of functional smart textiles based on nanotechnology and printed electronics technology. The young man aims to transform the market for sports, ski and tourist clothing, as well as work clothing for work in cold weather. The existing models of heated jackets and suits on the market are either too heavy or not safe enough. And the new technology of electronic textiles eliminates these problems, because it does not use threads: the heating elements are safe and are printed on the fabric itself. The students have already created a new generation of heated jacket and the same mittens. They can be washed and ironed.

In turn, & nbsp; student of Tomsk State University Institute of Economics and Management Vladislav Ryabukhin develops a startup for the development and production of rapid microbiological tests for quality control in craft breweries. The difference in this industry is that companies prepare small batches of the product. Therefore, as a rule, they do not have their own laboratory. However, even a small contamination with 'superfluous' microorganisms can alter the taste of the product. The student offered manufacturers a new method to quickly check the quality of goods using express microbiological testing and packaged it in a 'box'. solution.

Another student from & nbsp; TSU & mdash; & nbsp; Kristina Klyueva & mdash; created a startup for the production of new ultra-light and extra strong carbon-titanium bicycle frames. After studying the market, Christina found out that the production of bicycles with a carbon frame is very expensive (about 5 million rubles). Therefore, it was decided to split the technological process: one company involved is preparing carbon tubes, the other – & mdash; titanium assemblies on a 3D printer, and the startup is responsible for the assembly. & nbsp; “ It will be a flexible production, the first in the Russian Federation. The prototype is already ready, there is a potential customer. According to plans, an improved prototype will appear in a few months, and in a year or two we will go into production ',' ' says Christina Klyueva.

From eco-cafe to railway diagnostics

The students of the Institute of Gastronomy of the Federal University of Siberia develop & nbsp; the eco-cafe , whose concept is & mdash; Conscious consumption: rejection of disposable plastic, the most environmentally friendly materials in interior and production. According to & nbsp; startup participant, 4th year Federal Siberian University student Victoria Vylkova, & nbsp; in high season, the coffee already receives 1 to 2 orders per minute. The high school students were involved in all stages of the work: acquiring equipment, furniture, crockery, interior design, finding employees and marketing. ; a diagnostic system of the technical condition of the railway and have already managed to secure the first venture capital investments for this project. According to Mark Denisenko, principal investigator of the Design Center for Microelectronic Component Base for Artificial Intelligence Systems at SFedU, the system is able to record and recognize faults in engineering structures: machines, mechanisms, technological equipment and structures. At the heart of development & mdash; artificial intelligence algorithms that will accelerate the transition to advanced digital production technologies in industrial companies in Russia.

Solar sail and its creator

Anastasia Khramtsova, graduate of FEFU, laureate of the online accelerator student Startup as a Diploma , is working on the project solar veil , whose mission will be to converge small satellites in low earth orbit. The second iteration of the sail deployment system has already been developed and its prototype was made using a 3D printer. In collaboration with the Institute of Automation and Control Processes of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the material of the sail was determined. Designed and commissioned with grant funds for the satellite, which will control the vehicle in orbit. Work is underway to prepare the launch of the vehicle with on-board systems to test them in real operating conditions. Upon successful completion of the mission, these boards will be used for the solar sail vehicle. Anastasia admits that she immerses herself completely in all of her plans: she wakes up and goes to bed thinking about how to solve a particular problem. And she, like other young Russian scientists, succeeds, among other things, thanks to the national Science and Universities project. One of his key tasks & nbsp; & mdash; an increase in the share of young researchers under the age of 39 in Russia: today young scientists receive grants and the opportunity to work on the most advanced equipment, the main laboratories. & nbsp;

2021, declared in Russia as the Year of Science and Technology, has a monthly gradation … June, according to plan, & nbsp; & mdash; months of new production technologies and new materials. Young engineers and scientists develop and use new fabrics, alloys and polymers. As part of the national project “ Sciences and Universities '' World Class Science Centers (NTSMU) and Science and Technology Initiative (STI) Competence Centers are being established, carrying out research on the priorities of the country's scientific and technological development. All together, it gives a start in life and a powerful start to talented students and young scientists, whose ideas are already advancing scientific progress before our eyes.
