IFC METROPOL has helped to carry out major renovations of the premises of the Department of Environmental Management of the Faculty of Geography of Lomonosov Moscow State University

The opening ceremony of renovated premises of the Department of Environmental Management of the MSU Faculty of Geography was held on September 21, 2010. The symbolic red ribbon was cut by Dean of the Faculty of Geography, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor N.S. Kasimov, Head of the Department of Environmental Management, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor A.P. Kapitza, and Head of METROPOL Group of Companies M.V. Slipenchuk.

The Department of Environmental Management (DEM) was founded at the MSU Faculty of Geography in 1987. From the beginning to the present day the department has been headed by its founder, Honored Scientist, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Geography of Moscow State University, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Andrey Petrovich Kapitsa. Alumni of the Department – geographers, environmentalists, experts in environmental management, environmental monitoring and protection of the environment – work in scientific, academic and applied fields.

The DEM premises are located on the 17th floor of the University’s Main Building built in 1953. They had been in need of repair for a long time; however, a renovation was not possible due to modest state funding. The problem was resolved thanks to the initiative of Head of METROPOL Group of Companies Mikhail Slipenchuk, an alumnus of the faculty, A.P. Kapitsa’s former postgraduate student, Candidate of Geographic Sciences.

The renovation was carried out by IFC METROPOL workforce in short time without interrupting the student’s educational process. Renovation works were implemented under the supervision of faculty staff members: Associate Professor D.D. Badyukova and Senior Scientific Officer A.A. Potapov. Renovated rooms have gained additional functionality and become more comfortable for work without losing their main traditional elements (the general layout, drawings, a large conference table, and some other old pieces of furniture).

At the informal meeting following the opening ceremony, staff members and students expressed gratitude to Mikhail Slipenchuk and repair workers. Addressing the audience, Mr Slipenchuk said that the renovation project was his way to express gratitude to Moscow State University, the Faculty of Geography, the Department of Environmental Management, and his scientific supervisor Professor Andrey Petrovich Kapitsa. As a token of gratitude Professor E.I. Golubeva awarded the alumnus and sponsor Mikhail Slipenchuk a PhD badge.
