The contest finals are traditionally held in Moscow, where, apart from the onsite round, the finalists make themselves familiar with the latest achievements of Russian educational technology adopted by educational institutions in Russia. An interesting edutainment itinerary has been planned for the finalists in Moscow, plus the gifts have been in store – the rare 3rd edition of the Atlas of New Professions. 

The primary goal of the contest is to enhance the social and professional status of teachers from Russian schools abroad, to discover, support and incentivise the talented educators from Russian schools abroad who develop and implement the educational methods and aids in the field of HR training for the digital economy. While participating in the contest, the teachers share experience with their peers from different countries, get unique opportunities to proliferate their teaching methodologies and aids via the digital technology. 

The mission of Rossotrudnichestvo is to secure Russian geopolitical interests by promoting cultural exchange, education and new technologies as well as to build strong relations and cooperation worldwide at the highest level of professionalism, efficiency and sustainability.
