XIII Russian Internet Olympiad on Nanotechnology "Breakthrough to the Future": National Student Team Contest 2018/2019 (Basic Guidance Rules)


The National Student Team Contest is a national stage of the International Olympiad on Nanotechnology (International NanoOlympiad, INO) having a goal to select an effective and capable student team for participation in INO with a support of the Organizing Committee of the Russian Internet Olympiad on Nanotechnology (RION) “Breakthrough to the Future”. The 1st INO has been conducted in April of 2018 in Tehran by Iran, Russia, South Korea, Germany, Great Britainn, Malasia, Taiwan with a growing number of new countries joining the INO society.

The INO is an annual collaborative international event which holds an international competition among university level students (Appendix 1 and 2) and could combine a pre-olympic scientific conference for young scientists (Appendix 3) and the Olympiad itself. INO is organized to improve motivation of the students towards deeper knowledge in nanotechnology and better skills for innovative applications of real scientific and industrial problems. It is also a platform for international collaboration and networking in the relevant areas of nanotechnology. Participants propose their competitive ideas and plans as nanotechnology based solutions for focused problems related to global challenges. These rules are based on regulations of RION and take into consideration of the regulations of INO.

The Contest

The NSTC is a competition among bachelor and master students of higher school in Russia considering theoretical, experimental and creative skills based on nanotechnology and nanomaterials subjects. The Contest selects the best national team members for participation in the International NanoOlympiad contest on nanotechnology as determined by annual regulations of INO. The NSTC consists of two main steps – a distant stage demanding preparation of short overviews of a proposed experimental project and its possible practical applications (Appendix 1 and 2) and a consulting stage with experts of RION after selection of the NTSC winners. The sum achievements of both the stages will play the main role for the formation of a Russian Nation Team of Students in nanotechnology assumed to take part in the INO. The NTSC is a part of the RION, by definition. The official language for the Contest is English. PhD level students can join the Contest by special approval to be received from RION.
