I spent one semester in Germany and carried out a study of crustaceans in cooperation with Doctor Frank Scholze and Professor Jörg Schneider. Now I am a research fellow at the university and I am pursuing my postgraduate studies. This year in Germany I managed to work with a collection of conchostracans using a state-of-the-art microscope and make a few sketches of shells for further measurements. The program provides invaluable experience in working with world-class scientists".
During the visit the staff of the Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies of KFU signed a number of joint research agreements with the Faculty of Tectonophysics and Geothermochronology, the Laboratory of Organic Petrology, the Institute of Drilling and Mining Operations, the Institute of Mineralogy.

German colleagues who have wide experience in this area were impressed by our unique equipment.  During the meeting with Director of the Faculty of Tectonophysics and Geothermochronology Professor Lothar Ratschbacher and its staff, a decision was made on collaborative work in this area including research staff exchange", said Danis Nurgaliev.
