Each applicant has excellent and good estimates in all terms, as well as profound scientific developments and achievements (grants, patents, victories on contests, Olympiads and conferences).

Among the recipients there is the Institute of Physics and Technology student Evgeniy Boretskii which is developing a safe hydrogen fuel storage for automobiles and drones. In the storage hydrogen is “packed” in carbon tablets that exclude risks of spontaneous explosion.

The RF Government Fellowships were also granted to developers of a mobile sign language interpreter for hard of hearing – graduates students from the Institute of Cybernetics Vitaly Vidman and Alexandra Repetskaya. The polytechnicers are developing a mediate application for conversation with hard of hearing. The software will translate speaking into sign language and display animation on the smartphone screen.

Sergey Mirtov, a sophomore from the Institute of Cybernetics is backed as well. He has created a timekeeping system intended for fixing and processing results in high-speed sports competitions. The development has already successfully tested at the ice climbing stage of the Russian Cup. The student is going to adapt the system to operate at low temperatures.

Totally, the recipients of the RF Government Fellowships were called 14 students and 4 PhD students from the Institute of Power Engineering, 15 students and 2 PhD students from the Institute of Physics and Technology, 8 students and 1 PhD students from the Institute of High Technology Physics, 9 students from the Institute of Cybernetics, 6 students and 1 PhD student from the Institute of Natural Resources and 1 student and 1 PhD student from the Institute of non-Destructive Testing.
