Russian universities and institutes will declare themselves in Serbia and Turkey

The large-scale project called “Russian Digital Cooperation at Universities and Institutes” will be launched on 25-28 October 2019 in Belgrade (Serbia) and on 12-15 November 2019 in Ankara (Turkey).

The Russian Digital Cooperation at Universities and Institutes project has been developed with the support from Rossotrudnichestvo under the Human Resources for the Digital Economy Federal Project of the Digital Economy of the Russian Federation National Programme.

How to enrol to a Russian university or institute? How to become an IT professional without the knowledge of the Russian language? How can business cooperate with the educational sphere? All these questions will be answered at the international exhibitions by Russian universities and institutes to be held soon in the Russian centres of science and culture. 

The programme is extensive. It is not simply about displays and presentations. Visitors in Belgrade and Ankara will be offered open lectures, master classes, round tables – more than 20 events! They could talk to the representatives of Russian universities and institutes in person. School graduates will have a perfect chance to learn the most interesting things from the source.

  • universities and institutes as platform for training of human resources for the digital economy
  • Transformation of universities, institutes and educational programmes as part of the digitisation process;

 – The IT sphere actively develops in Russia. As early as today, we teach the new digital technologies to the youth. But creating it something new is not enough. We must share the technologies. It should become one of the milestones of the modern international cooperation of universities and institutes of Russia and other countries, commented Mikhail Popov, Director of the Scientific and Educational Project Management Department of Rossotrudnichestvo. – Arranging and running the foreign exhibition is a perfect way to establish partner relations between the systems of higher education in various countries and consolidate the image of Russia as a progressive and professional participant of global projects, including those implemented in the digital economy sphere.
