Professor of Kumamoto University-Japan Ihara Hirotaka visits Baku State University

The President of BSU, academician Abel Maharramov met with Hirotaka Ikhara the professor of the Kumamoto University of Japan, and at the meeting the President gave information about the Azerbaijan-Japan relations, the study of Japanese language at Baku State University, Cooperation on science and education issues. During the meeting, were discussed establishing of new and continuation of old relations and student, master and PhD exchanges between Kumamoto University and BSU. Then, Prof. Hirotaka İhara has been to NanoResearch Center and together with Prof. Mahammadali Ramazanov has discussed about the outline of the research work that PhD. Student Rahimi Almara will undertake during her visit to Japan. It was decided that she will deal with the synthesis of the polymer coating on the surface of SiO2 nanoparticles as a result of polymerization of monomers and subsequently carbonization as a result of thermal processing. Discussions about the construction the drugs on the surface of such substances and about possible prospects of application of these materials in the targeted drug delivery in the future were held. The application of such materials as luminescent material was also noted. In the future, the use of this technology to transport drugs to cancer cells has also been discussed and agreed on the carbonization of the surface iron oxide nanoparticles and the construction of the drugs on the surface of nanoparticles. We would like to note that the second employee of the Nanotechnology Center is conducting fundamental research in Kumamoto University of Japan.

He was delivering  a public lecture at Baku State University during 2 – 6 Aprel. Lectures were open to  the public. A lot of Students, masters and PhD’s were taking part in the lectures. In 5 th of April prof. Maccone gave a presentation  in Nanoresearch laboratory. In his presentation he covered many interesting aspects of Quantum Physics and answered asked questions. Discussions will be held for further collaboration.

PhD student of BSUNanoresearch laboratory conducts research in Japan

PhD student of BSU Nanoresearch laboratory, AlmaraRahimli, carries out research work at the Applied Chemistry and Biochemistry Department of Kumamoto University, Japan. The visit takes place through the invitation by Professor of Department Head of Applied Chemistry and Biochemistry Hirotaka Ihara and all visit expenses are covered by Japanese government. At the frame of internship AlmaraRahimli will investigate the technology of acquisition and stabilization of TiO2 nanoparticles by the use of new carbon modification method. She will also study the possible applications of these novel hybrid materials. It should be noted that at the Baku State University recently, special attention is paid to the dual management issues of PhD students. The supervisors of the PhD student AlmaraRahimli is Dean of the Faculty Physics of Baku State University, Professor MahammadaliRamazanov, and Professor of Department Head of Applied Chemistry and Biochemistry Hirotaka IHARA.

The next meeting of project ECONANO


The next meeting of project ECONANO in the frame of implementation European Union TEMPUS program was held at Baku State University 08 -10 July 2015. The representative of the Ministry of Education, participants from European Union side: University of Sapienza, Italy, Paris 13, France, the University of Patras, Greece, and from Azerbaijan: Baku State University, Azerbaijan University of Architecture and Construction, Caucasus University, AZECOLAB company attended the meeting. Have been carried out the discussions of the creation of a new master's program Environmental Engineering and proposed the creation of this specialization in accordance with European education programs designed for the Republic of Azerbaijan. The new master's degree program will include only specialty-oriented subjects. The post master theses on the researches carried out in universities of Italy, France and Greece in the frame of ECONANO project were presented and discussed on 9 of July 2015. An international commission evaluated each of the 12 postmasters theses. The Rector of Baku State University, academician Abel Maharramov emphasized the high level of made presentations and noted that it became possible thanks to intensive and hard work and effort under supervision of their supervisors. He also noted that such successful implementation of this project is the real example of integration of Azerbaijan education system into the European educational area. Project leader Professor Luca Di Palma, and coordinator from Azerbaijan side Professor Mahammadali Ramazanov reported on the work done and the planned next activities was discussed. During the seminar the representative of the Ministry of Education of Azerbaijan Ilham Humbatov highly evaluated the implemented activities in the frame of ECONANO project and in connection with further preparation of "Environmental engineering" master's program said that the Ministry of Education highly values ​​ such projects, and always support it. At the end, certificates were successfully handed to masters’ students. At the meeting took part 11 professors from the European Universities.
