W kategori

W dniu 10 grudnia 2018 na Uniwersytecie w Vinh odbyła się wyjątkowa uroczystość. Uczelnia po raz pierwszy w swojej historii nadała doktorat honoris causa naszemu pracownikowi profesorowi Cao Long Van. W uroczystości wzięli udział prof. Marek Trippenbach z Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego pełniący rolę promotora doktoratu honorowego, prof. Dinh Xuan Khoa – rektor Uniwersytetu w Vinh (były doktorant prof. Cao Long Van), prorektorzy, kierownicy jednostek, wykładowcy oraz studenci. Warto nadmienić, że Uniwersytet w Vinh będący jedną z największych uczelni publicznych w Wietnamie (a największą w środkowej części Wietnamu) położył wielkie zasługi dla nauki i edukacji wyższej Wietnamu. Przez prawie 60 lat kształciły się na nim setki tysięcy nauczycieli szkół średnich w Wietnamie, a także wielu wybitnych naukowców wietnamskich.


Collection of Interviews by Marek Oramus, (among others) with our colleague

W kategori

We are pleased to inform that the collection of short interviews with polish scientists has just been published. All conversations were led by well-known writer and publicist Marek Oramus and the entire collection entitled On Heaven and Earth was published by the publishing house Fronda. Each of the 27 chapters introduces exciting topics of contemporary science through conversation with some of the polish leading researchers. As Marek Oramus says: the idea of these interviews was to show what the world is like. Most interviews appeared over the years 2009-2016, mainly in “Wiedza i Życie”, and also in “Plus Minus” (the weekend edition of “Rzeczpospolita”) and Fantastyka.
For obvious reasons, we suggest the interview No. 6 (in the part “On the Earth”) entitled "Huge Construction Site" that is partially available on the "Wiedza i Życie" magazine page.
