Nazarbayev University presented the Association of Young Scientists
Nazarbayev University has created a new research platform. A new Association of Young Scientists is helping the local researchers have a networking opportunity and be able to find partners for conducting interdisciplinary research and developing joint projects. The association has already brought together more than 100 young scientists, including graduate students in philosophy, humanities, social sciences and engineering. 5 million tenge was allocated to finance this association from the Nazarbayev University's Corporate Social Development Fund.
SAYAT NUSIPOV, SPOKESPERSON, CORPORATE ‘SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT FUND’ OF NAZARBAYEV UNIVERSITY:
- We are ready to support the projects of young scientists. We will help those who have interesting ideas that are useful for the society. This association is not exclusively for Nazarbayev University. Scientists from all over Kazakhstan can join it. The association can grow to a global scale.
ASIYA YERMUKHAMBETOVA, CHAIRPERSON, ASSOCIATION OF YOUNG SCIENTISTS:
- Young scientists who have just graduated from universities and are just starting their independent research, have more difficulties than those who already have certain experience. They usually do not have access to sources of financing for their projects. So we want to create networking opportunities for them.
