According to the results of the exam, 30 students were selected for the third stage, and 26 of them successfully passed it.

In particular, they take an active part in projects of the Laboratory of Information Technologies, Laboratory of High Energy Physics, Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, Laboratory of Nuclear Problems.
Organizers of the School realize that the economy and science sector of the country requires specialists in data analysis and processing (Data Scientists); it is an extremely wide field that covers all new areas. So, organizers expand the cooperation with resident enterprises of the Special Economic Zone “Dubna” and other companies.
