National University of Science and Technology MISiS
Participation in this competition began with the recommendation of the teacher of the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration. Two projects were chosen for sending - "Travel Quest" which took 20th place in the qualifying stage and "RANHIGS (Schedule)" which took 7th place in the qualifying stage and gave me the opportunity to get to the finals and present its full functionality.
According to the rules of this Olympiad, the finalists' travel must be sponsored by the universities they study at, so I was provided with tickets and lodging in Moscow for the duration of the final. The program of the final included a trip to Skolkovo, many lectures and master classes, and on the final day the closing ceremony and awarding of the winners. I liked everything: the tour to Skolkovo showed me what technological innovations have been recently developed in Russia, the lectures and master classes delighted me with their interest, and in the final my project was fully appreciated and awarded an honorable second place.
