The main topic of the meeting on March 20 at Polytechnic was the development of interaction in the network of Russian-national (Slavic) universities, the possibility of transferring the best practices, taking into account the experience of Polytechnic University as a coordinator of cooperation with Belarusian-Russian (BRU) and Russian-Armenian (RAU) universities.

The Administration of the President of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation pay great attention to this project, considering it one of the most effective mechanisms for promoting Russian education and science in the key regions for Russia, said Vadim Smirnov. We highly appreciate the successful practice of what Polytechnic University has already done and your initiatives to promote, first of all, engineering education.

The main topic of the meeting was the development of interaction in the network of Russian-national (Slavic) universities

The mutual integration of Russian and national (Slavic) universities has been growing significantly over the past few years. Polytechnic University has initiated a number of projects not only for BRU and RAU, but also for Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University (KRSU) and Russian-Tajik Slavic University (RTU).

We believe that we should direct all our potential, all our experience and opportunities to maximize the role of Slavic universities in their countries and regions. To make these universities a model, a showcase of the best of Russian education, a point of attraction for the most talented students of our brotherly countries. As the leading engineering university in the country, Polytechnic University will make every effort to develop the technological and engineering potential of the Slavic universities, — emphasized Andrei Rudskoi at the meeting.
