The Conference date
The conference in the field of water supply and sanitation "Yakovlev Readings", dedicated to the memory of Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Sergei Yakovlev, is held annually at MGSU in mid-March. In 2024, the conference will be held for the 20th time.
Sergey Yakovlev made a huge contribution to the development of physicochemical and biochemical methods for the purification of natural and waste waters, water supply and sewerage systems for industrial purposes.
He developed the theoretical foundations for the treatment of natural and waste water and the design of treatment facilities, which are introduced into the practice of design and construction in our country. He created high-load biofilters, biofilters with plastic loading, aeration tanks with regeneration of activated sludge using technical oxygen, a method of aerobic stabilization of activated sludge, an electrocoagulation method, a method of biochemical reduction of chromates and bioreagents, etc.
"Yakovlev readings", which have become a good tradition for the university, are always actively attended by students and graduate students, representatives of the academic community and scientific organizations, specialists in the field of construction and housing and communal services of the industry.
Among industry experts, the "Yakovlev Readings" have a reputation as an important discussion platform for discussing the most pressing issues and problems of water supply and sanitation:
- Aspects of water and wastewater transportation
- New materials in water supply and sewage
- Advances in water purification
- Wastewater treatment and reuse
- Water management

About MGSU
National Research Moscow State University of Civil Engineering
National Research Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (NRU MGSU) was established in 1921. Before 1993 it was known as Moscow Institute of Civil Engineering named after V.V. Kuibyshev (MISI). It is one of the oldest technical institutes of higher education of the Russian Federation.

In 2010 the University was given the status of «National Research University», equally effectively implementing educational and academic activity on the basis of the principles of integration of science and education. The status of «National Research University» is established by the Government of the Russian Federation for the next 10 years to the results of competitive selection of development programs of universities, aimed at staffing of the priority directions of development of science, technology, equipment, branches of economy, social sphere, development and introduction in manufacture of high technologies, for universities equally effectively implementing the educational programs of the higher professional and postgraduate professional education and performing fundamental-detailed and applied scientific research on a wide range of sciences. At the present moment, MGSU is a leading civil engineering institute of higher education in the Russian Federation. The University comprises 8 big institutes, more than 50 departments, implementing the training of specialists in a wide range of scientific areas. There are 40 specialized scientific laboratories; more than 50 innovative structures are making scientific and venture research in the sphere of design and construction of safe and comfortable buildings, structures and complexes, being an innovative pool of new knowledge in civil engineering. MGSU has 1 branch in the Moscow region in Mytishchi.

In 2022 MGSU is receive a special part of the grant in "Territorial and Sectoral Leadership". Being one of the participants of the "Priority 2030" program since its start last year MGSU currently gets the basic part of the grant.

The "Priority 2030" was launched in 2021 as a federal academic leadership program under the "Science and Universities" national project of the Russian Federation. Its main aim is to form over 100 progressive modern universities, centers of scientific, technological and socio-economic development in Russia by 2030.
About Moscow
Moscow is the capital of Russia, its political, economic, and cultural centre. This is the most populated city in Russia and Europe. For many people fr om Russia and other countries the capital of Russia is a city of magnificent opportunities.
European Capital
Moscow is very much like any other European capital as far as its infrastructure and lifestyle are concerned, while its people do not differ much from those living in other metropolises, such as London and New York. That is why foreigners find it so easy to adapt to life in Moscow.
City of Events
There's always something going on in Moscow: exhibitions, festivals, performances, excursions, concerts, quests, marathons... You can have a great time in Moscow and you don't have to spend a fortune either: get a bird's-eye view of the city, take a boat ride down Moscow river, descend 65 metres below ground to the Cold War bunker, take drawing or guitar classes, take a tour around Moscow's bars or take part in wine tasting, enjoy roller skating in a park, or visit a maze of mirrors...
This Is One of the Best Cities in the World for Students
Moscow was included in Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking of top world cities for students in 2014 and 2015. Among other things, the experts evaluated how popular the metropolis is among students, how prestigious its universities are, and whether there are opportunities for study.
City of Sports
Moscow can boast of over 9.5 thousand sporting facilities, including over 4,000 gyms. The Russian capital is a frequent host of sporting events: marathons and competitions on a national and international scale. The Sporting City is a major holiday in Moscow, bringing together over 70,000 students from the capital's institutions of higher education. A huge sporting facility is being built in the centre of Moscow to host over 50 so-called sporting sections. Anyone can try their hand at all kinds of sports – from urban mountain biking to sumo wrestling.
City of Parks
Many international tourists are surprised at the number of parks, gardens, and garden squares they find in Moscow. There are over 120 of them here. We are mostly talking about spacious green areas with everything you could possibly need for comfortable recreation, including benches, Wi-Fi, cafes, pathways, sports facilities and much more besides. The parks always host all manner of interesting activities, including festivals, concerts, and special events.
The Most Beautiful Undeground on Earth
The Moscow Metro is not only a convenient way to move around the city, but one of its main sights, a cultural gem, wh ere even guided tours are held. Its stations are decorated with marble, mosaics, and sculptures. Mayakovskaya, Kiyevskaya, Komsomolskaya, and Novoslobodskaya are among the most beautiful of the many stations. Ploschad Revolutsii [Revolution Square] with a sculpture of a frontier guard and a dog is particularly popular among students. Many believe rubbing the dog's nose before an exam brings good luck.
The Largest Library in Europe
The Russian State Library, which contains over 45.5 mln publications and documents in 367 languages, is located in the heart of Moscow, on Vozdvizhenka Street. Here, you will find computers with internet access, electronic document search, and a cafe. Anyone can join the library; you only have to present a passport with a valid visa, translated into Russian.
Multinational City
Social scientists state, that only 2% of Moscow's population of more than 12 mln people, are indigenous residents. Over the last 20 years, three million people migrated to Moscow from other regions of Russia, and the number of foreigners (excluding the CIS countries) who live here on a permanent basis is estimated to top 300,000 people. People from different countries and religions find life very comfortable in Moscow, with its Orthodox churches, synagogues, mosques, Catholic churches, Buddhist centres, and more. No wonder the British newspaper The Independent called this cosmopolitan city the most foreigner-friendly.
