MOSCOW, DECEMBER 17, 2021. PIR PRESS. “The internship at PIR Center helped me find myself and realized that I was capable of many things. I got an invitation to become part of PIR Center team after having received endless rejections from potential employers; I had failed in professional and scientific competitions and practically lost any hope of converting my academic achievements into something more tangible and practically applicable. Here, at PIR Center, I saw that what I was doing could make a difference. I realized I had a lot to strive for and that all I had been through wasn’t for nothing”, – Artem Kvartalnov, PIR Center intern (2020-2021), currently junior research fellow of Nuclear Nonproliferation & Russia Program of PIR Center.
