E-Quadrat Science + Education team wishes their partners and friends a happy and fruitful New Year. And as a small gift, we asked our experts to share their opinions on what the year 2022 taught us to be successful in 2023.
“Universities, as well as other scientific institutions, cannot be detached from the social and political context of their countries, and they have to be aware of it. Ivory tower is not as impermeable as academia sometimes wants it to be”, states E-Quadrat’s CEO Egor Yablokov.
“Throughout the centuries of their history, this year the university have been able to see that their natural conservatism must be flexible and create change, otherwise it will come from outside; and probably in an undesired way. That the best defense is an attack, and that the future of the academic environment can be defended only through proactive and prospective preparations for possible crises. Also those that are systemic, global, and affect the entire academic community”, says Dr Vsevolod Bylevsky, philologist and social scientist.
