Perm Natural Science Forum 2021

Science and Global Challenges of the XXI Century

In 2022, the central theme of the forum is Innovations and Technologies in Interdisciplinary Applications

This forum is a natural continuation of the forum "Mathematics and Global Challenges of the 21st Century", held in 2016 and dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Perm State National Research University.

In the jubilee year for the Perm State National Research University (PSU), the forum became a significant event that attracted a large number of leading scientists from Russia, near and far abroad. Thousands of participants attended symposia, conferences, exhibitions, master classes, round tables, seminars, open lectures of the forum from a rigorous international scientific symposium dedicated to differential equations to an exhibition of digital art and a championship in robotics.

The main goal of the forum is to understand the tasks and problems facing science, education and the entire society in the context of the globalization of civilization processes on the planet, to propose solutions and directions of action to realize opportunities, counter threats and manage risks. Global challenges defining the main trends in the development of social and economic life of humanity in the XXI century requires combining the efforts of specialists in various fields of knowledge, production and the economy. Therefore, the main principle of the formation of the forum's program is interdisciplinarity, the formation of end-to-end innovation chains: fundamental and applied research, technology development, implementation in practice, widespread use of information technologies.

This year, at the Science and Global Challenges of the 21st Century forum, which has become an annual event, it is planned to hold a wide range of events that will bring together scientists, schoolchildren, students, graduate students, teachers, managers and specialists in production and business. The main platform for the forum will be the PSU campus. And at the same time, many events of the forum will go beyond the university campus to the sites of other universities and enterprises of the Perm region. Joint activities with a number of Russian and foreign scientific and educational institutions are planned by videoconference.
