The 23rd Student IT School "Technologies + Business"
Under the supervision of Dr. Alexey Umnov, the 23rd Student IT School "Technologies + Business" began its work at Lobachevsky University. In the course of three weeks, more than 50 young researchers from different universities in Nizhni Novgorod, Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities of Russia will improve their knowledge in the IT field and carry out their own projects. The focus of this year's projects is on "smart city - smart campus". This year, the IT school offers a pleasant bonus to its participants: it has been accredited as the semifinal stage of the UMNIK competition held by the Fund for Promoting the Development of Small Forms of Enterprises in the Field of Science and Technology http://umnik.fasie.ru/.null This means that school participants can present and defend their projects under the UMNIK program right here, at the IT school.
The IT school has been held annually since 2003, with more than 1 000 persons taking part over these years. 12 commercial technology companies have grown out of the projects created at the IT school.
