IRS 2019 Venue
Kaluga region
The Kaluga region (or Kaluga oblast), where the 12th International Research School will be held, is situated in the heart of European Russia, south-west of Moscow and the Moscow region.
Despite being located very close to the Russian capital (it takes only two hours to get to Kaluga - the center of the region – by train) the region still retains a lot of natural beauty, with numerous forests, rivers and a variety of wildlife.
The region is also one of the most historic places in the country. Many of its old cities and towns – including Tarusa, Borovsk, Kozelsk and more – attract numerous tourists every year. Another great tourist attraction in the Kaluga region is Tsiolkovsky State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics. Founded in 1967, it is the world's oldest museum dedicated to space exploration. The museum is located in the city of Kaluga, because Konstantin Tsiolkovsky – the founder of the Russian cosmonautics – lived and worked there for most of his life.
In Russia the region is often referred to as "the cradle of the peaceful atom", since it was here, in the city of Obninsk, that the first nuclear power plant in the country was built.
At the same time, the Kaluga region is one of the fastest developing and one of the most economically advanced areas in Russia. The region is among leaders by industrial growth, investments per capita, growth of real income and level of annually introduced advanced technologies.

IRS Anthem
(now, the official MILSET Anthem)

Around the world where are so many nations
The countries borders tore the earth apart
But borders don`t exist for inspiration
And nothing limits sciences and arts

Chorus:
No more borders we are all together
Doesn't matter what`s your mother tongue
We are here to break the walls forever
No more limits the future`s for the young
No more limits the future`s for the young

And if you seek discoveries and inventions
And if your mind is opened to the new
You can reveal the mysteries of nature
The future of the word depends on you!

Chorus:
No more borders we are all together
Doesn't matter what`s your mother tongue
We are here to break the walls forever
No more limits the future`s for the young
No more limits the future`s for the young
