Dmitrii Vladimirovich Ivanov (born June 15, 1977) is a Russian mathematician, Dr. Sci. in Physics and Mathematics; expert in the field of radiolocation and telecommunication systems; corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS); Vice-Rector for Science at Volga State University of Technology (Yoshkar-Ola, Russia).
D.V. Ivanov developed the theoretical basis of the protected information communication due to the use of the effect of high-order frequency dispersion of broadband and ultra-broadband HF radio channels; the problem of the creation in the Earth’s ionosphere of broadband HF radio channels ensuring increased security of information communication has been solved; a unique mobile system of frequency allotment for broadband HF communication based on the technology of software-configurable radio systems has been developed , which allows solving the problem of ensuring the operation of cognitive communication systems in dispersive media.
D.V. Ivanov is the author of more than 200 publications; his scientific achievements have been noted with awards at various national and international fairs and exhibitions.
D.V. Ivanov is engaged in teaching activities and training of scientific personnel.
D.V. Ivanov is the Head of the Commission “G”of URSI Russian National Committee; member of the RAS Scientific Council on the problems of computing, radiolocation and telecommunication systems; member of the RAS Scientific Council on Propagation of Radio Waves; chairman of the specialized Dissertation Council; member of the Expert Council on electronics, measuring equipment, radio engineering and communications of the Higher Attestation Commission; chairman of the editorial board of the journalVestnik of Volga State University of Technology. Series Radio Engineering and Infocommunication Systems.
The main reasons for the growing attention to the problem of the formation of science literacy of various strata of society are as follows:
worldview–science literacy is an important tool for understanding the world, contributing to the formation of people’s worldviews, their ideas about the environment;
political–science literacy creates the basis for the development of a national political system orienting its power structures at the adoption of effective scientifically and socially sound management decisions regarding the prospects for the development of all spheres of life in the country;
economic–science satisfies the need for knowledge necessary for solving problems arising in all spheres of life;
social–science literacy contributes to the socialization of individuals strengthens their identification status, and influences their choice of behavioral strategies;
educational–associated with the increasing role of the intellectual capital as the basis of the system of social reproduction.
In the current context of active development of all areas of scientific knowledge the issue of science literacy development among the population is one of the priorities for the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Union of Scientific and Engineering Associations. The organizations solve the following tasks: detailed characterization of the barriers preventing science literacy development at the levels of general, professional and additional education; elimination of ambiguities and inaccuracies in understanding the phenomenon of science; combating the spread of pseudo-and para- scientific knowledge; changes in cognitive potential and structure of sciences; differentiation and integration of sciences.
The Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Union of Scientific and Engineering Associations address the issues associated with obtaining new knowledge and new types of problems. The organizations contribute to increasing the body of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research, as well as to combining the efforts of state, public and business organizations to fulfill the basic institutions responsible for the formation and enhancement of science literacy among the population. Among the institutions, educational ones (general education schools, colleges, universities), socio-cultural organizations (national and public libraries, museums, palaces and intellectual development studios, etc.), and business structures (enterprises, companies, corporations) should be singled out. A special role is assigned to bookpublishing organizations (including grant support for authors and publication of monographs containing new scientific knowledge), propaganda of new knowledge through the media, and the development of international relations of scientists from different countries.
Particular attention is given to the development of a regional network approach by creating a structure of houses of science and technology, involving with educational, socio-cultural and business organizations in their activities. They are regarded as an effective tool for the development of science literacy. The idea of creating an information and communication platform for the open exchange of new knowledge and dissemination of electronic educational resources within the network is being developed.Improving science literacy among the population is one of the main tasks of the state, contributing to the harmonious and sustainable development of the country, region, enterprise. The joint efforts of academic, research, and scientific and technical organizations, governmental bodies, educational institutions, and business communities can solve current and future global and local challenges towards the further socio-economic prosperity of all mankind and global sustainable development.
