Professor of BSU delivered a speech at STAR-NET in Vienna

An expanded meeting of the General Assembly, the Presidium and The Regional Network for Education and Training in Nuclear Technology (STAR-NET)was held at the headquarter of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna. Dean of the Faculty of Physics of Baku State University, Professor Mahammadali Ramazanov and Associate Professor Flora Hajiyeva represented Azerbaijan at the event, which was attended by 25 delegates from 10 countries. Professor Mahammadali Ramazanov spoke about the importance of participation of member countries in joint international scientific and education grants and has made some important proposals. The discussions mainly focused on the importance of the use of nuclear technology, the preparation of highly qualified personnel to overcome the future side effects of nuclear technology, and the activities of the IAEA in this direction.

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.

The presentation of ECONANO project of EU was carried out in Baku State University


The first stage of Econano Project coordinated by Sapienza University of Italy in collaboration with Baku State University has finished. On this stage, invited European and local university professors and lecturers were delivering Econano students lectures, practical, laboratory materials related to nine subjects of six moduli within three months. Professor of the Sapienza University Di Rome Luca di Palma has examined students during 21-22 January. Nine students, which successfully passed exams, have been chosen to continue their education in the Sapienza University of Italy, two of them to Panepistimo University of Patras of Greece, and one student - to the University of Paris 13 of France for three months. Econano Project will finance the all expenses of students during education period. Prof. Luca di Palma expressed his gratitude to administration of BSU, and coordinator from Azerbaijani side prof. M.A.Ramazanov for successfully carrying out the project.

The presentation of ECONANO project of EU was carried out in Baku State University 03/03/2014. On this presentation participated the collaborators of the project from Azerbaijani side: Baku State University, Ministry of Education of Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan Architectural and Construction University, Caucasus University and AZECOLAB company; from EU side under coordination of Sapienza University Di Roma (Italy), University Paris 13 (France) and Panepistimo Patron (Greece).
