UTMN takes leading positions for popularizing science
A rating of Universities participating in Project 5-100 with the most prominent press presence during 2019 was released.
Valery Falkov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, comments:
"It is difficult to overestimate the importance of popularizing science ... The Ministry believes that this issue should be prioritized in our future work ... At present, human intellectual capital determines the success of not only a single university or region, but also the country as a whole".
Indicator portal, information and service portal dedicated to science, has published a new rating evaluating universities of the 5-100 project in terms of effectively popularizing scientific research during 2019.
Compared to last year, the University of Tyumen moved up by three positions.
The study estimated the effectiveness of universities' coverage of their scientific activities in media. When compiling the rating, a few aspects were taken into account: the number of scientific press releases (including in English), the frequency of updating the science news section of the university's site, research coverage in university's social media, in Russian and foreign mass media.
