Terms of participation
We invite delegations of your educational organizations to take part in IRS 2022.

The 14th International Research School will be held in a hybrid (face-to-face and remote) format.

Organizations themselves select students for their teams and provide them with the assistance of a supervising teacher - the delegation coordinator.

We welcome delegations of talented high school students (14-17 y.o.) interested in science and new knowledge, asking questions and looking for answers, open to communication with people with different cultural backgrounds. We recommend that you give priority to those schoolchildren who have successfully participated in national and international science projects competitions.

The main recommendation to delegation coordinators is English proficiency, as they will not only interact with tutors from different countries, but also take part in an international workshop for teachers organized as a part of IRS 2022. In addition we always welcome the delegation coordinators who are experienced in students' scientific/technical projects supervision and are in a good contact with participants of their teams.

We also consider possible for individual students to participate in IRS 2022 Online if they are motivated and organized enough.

IRS Rules
During the International Research School, we are guided by a set of rules. The leaders of the delegations participating in the IRS are responsible for the observation of these rules by their group members.
What should one do at the IRS?
Participate in all the activities of the School. The IRS program includes work in project groups and mass events. Coming to the School means participating in both. Each activity is directly related to other ones and affects the overall result. You can get the most complete, vivid and memorable impression of the School only if you participate in all its events and activities.
Come to the scheduled events on time. The IRS lives in a very intense rhythm, and it is very important to stick to this rhythm. Being late, you create inconvenience to other participants and miss a part of the event.
Communicate in English. English at IRS is not only the working language, but also the one we use in everyday communication. This should be remembered both during your work in the project group and in other situations. For example, if you want to say something to your compatriot, but next to you there is a participant from another country, please, be polite and speak English.
Show careful and respectful attitude to each other, to local traditions and customs, to the culture and traditions of other participants, as well as to the property on the territory of residence and the environment.
Observe the safety rules:
  • Immediately notify your delegation leader of tutor, if you feel unwell.
  • Do not leave the territory of the IRS venue without permission on days when this is not stipulated by the program.
  • Do not leave your group during the excursions and field activities without a permission of the accompanying adult\adults.
  • While on a moving bus, do not stand or walk. Leaning out or putting your hands out of the bus windows is also forbidden.
IRS Events and Activities
Here we briefly describe the events included in the IRS program and tell you how to prepare for them properly, (that is what to wear, etc.)
IRS: What you will find there…and what you won't find
When applying for participation in any event, we all have certain expectations. If these expectations are met, and we get exactly what we wanted, we like the event. And if it turns out to be not at all the way we thought it would be, then, at best, we may get disappointed, and at worst - very upset and even offended. To help you properly prepare for the IRS, we decided to publish this table. We recommend you to read it to set up your expectations and know what should and what should not be expected from the International Research School.
