Starting from August 22, 2017 Lindau (Germany) became the “center of economic sciences” in the world. For a period of almost a week more than 300 young talented economists from different parts of the world had a great chance to meet 17 Nobel Laureates on Economic Sciences.
The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings – established in 1951 – provide globally recognised forums for exchange between Nobel Laureates and young scientists. This year the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings organised the 6th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings interact closely with a global network of academic partners to identify highly-talented young scientists and to nominate them for participation.Having passed an international, multi-stage selection process among thousands of applications, Dr. Rustam Abduraupov joined a team of scientific elite of the future.
During the Meeting Rustam Abduraupov participated in lectures and panel discussions together with Robert J. Aumann, Peter A. Diamond , Lars Peter Hansen , Oliver Hart , James J. Heckman, Bengt R. Holmström, Finn E. Kydland, Eric S. Maskin, Daniel L. McFadden, Sir James A. Mirrlees , Roger B. Myerson, Sir Christopher A. Pissarides, Edward C. Prescott, Myron S. Scholes, Christopher A. Sims , Jean Tirole and other peers and guests.
One of the most inspiring lectures for Rustam Abduraupov was Professor Oliver Hart’s “Should a Company Pursue Shareholder Value?” After the discussion of the topic, Oliver Hart and Rustam Abduraupov agreed to work together on the future publications.
Dr. Rustam Abduraupov says: “The 6th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on Economic Sciences was one of the most exciting events in my life. It was a unique opportunity to meet 17 Nobel Laureates at once during a week, a wonderful full of meetings, speeches, lectures, panel discussions, seminars and joy. We [young economists] were invited to come together in Lindau to learn, share ideas and experience, network and make friends.
The coming Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on Economic Sciences will be held in 2020. I hope more of my colleagues from Westminster International University in Tashkent apply for attending this event to gain invaluable once-in-a-lifetime experience that hopefully has a lifelong impact.”

On August 31st WIUT Social Department organized a special event dedicated to the beginning of the new school year. On this occasion, 1st year schoolchildren, along with their parents among the university staff, gathered at the main WIUT campus.
It has already become an annual tradition to give small gifts, containing essential school supplies, to schoolchildren to encourage young scholars to take first steps into education. During the event children sang songs and read poems, which they have learned by heart.
Highlighting the focus and tireless work of the country towards development and modernization, it is essential to support every new step on the path of preparing a new generation of highly educated and intellectual citizens.
WIUT is a multilingual environment in which Uzbek, English and Russian as well as the first spoken languages of some of the students all have a role to play on campus, inside and outside the classroom. In such a rich language ecology there can be misunderstandings not only about what language is expected / appropriate in what context but also relating to the various identities projected by the language choices made by students, academic and non-academic staff. Despite the variety of languages used, the university does not have an explicit language policy. In order to develop such a policy, some prior research needs to be carried out.
The objective of the Language Policy Project is to: carry out fieldwork in order to explore the ‘lived reality’ of language at WIUT; develop a credible and workable statement on language (a language policy); explore the issue of language planning in this unusual language environment as an object of research in itself. The research will be based on questionnaires and interviews with academic and non-academic staff and with students. On the basis of the gathered data and a thorough analysis of it, a language policy for WIUT will be proposed to the executive board in the academic year 2017-2018.
The adoption of an explicit language policy for WIUT will be led by Professor Andrew Linn (UoW, project director) and two research assistants, Anastasiya Bezborodova and Saida Radjabzade (WIUT, Global English department).
