The event is traditionally held annually by Rector Ilshat Gafurov.
This year, however, the meeting moved from a conference room to various labs and offices. The University’s employees remembered the Russian proverb “better to see one time than to hear a hundred times” and escorted the journalists through the numerous facilities.
The first stop was at the Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology. Director Andrey Kiyasov showed everyone what the tomorrow of national medicine looks like.
The focus of the excursion was showing our guests how the University implements the interdisciplinary approach in its everyday practice. Many of them are KFU’s alumni, and they were visibly surprised by how drastic the changes in the educational process and equipment supply are since the day they had left the walls of alma mater.
Of course, everything could not be covered in one visit, therefore – quite expectedly – the guests decided to make one more visit to the Rector soon and just overall make the meeting more frequent. The next time will be dedicated to the observatory, physics and chemistry labs, Islamica excellence center, and many other facilities.
