Russian Science Foundation (RSF) announced the results of 2018 contests for grants "Initiative research by young scientists" and "Conducting research by scientific groups under the leadership of young scientists" of the Presidential research projects program. It is developed by the Foundation on behalf of Russian President Vladimir Putin and aimed at supporting long-term projects of leading scientists, as well as creating career paths for promising young researchers.

Following the results of two recently concluded competitions, the Foundation supported 503 initiative projects of young scientists in total amount of 1.5-2 million rubles annually and 313 youth scientific groups with 3-5 million rubles funding.

Vyatka State University representatives are among the winners of both competitions. Projects "Parallel algorithms and software for performing BLAS-operations of multiple accuracy on high-performance computing systems with a hybrid CPU / GPU architecture" by the leading researcher of the Department of electronic computers Konstantin Isupov and "Development of the method of automatic detection of roads by satellite and aerospace images" of Ekaterina Kurbatova, associate professor of the Department of Radioelectronic Means received RSF grants by the results of the contest "Initiative research by young scientists", whose goal is to support young people aged by 33, defended their Candidate’s Dissertations (Ph.D. theses).
