"System" Charity Funding launches a new project “Universities of the Future” as a part of All-Russian program "Lift to the Future”. The project is aimed at applicants and their parents and consists of a series of bright and instructive video reports about Russian universities, and what education and career perspectives are ahead of future students of various Russian universities.
The project is developed and implemented with the government support, the grant of the President of the Russian Federation dated 29.03.2013 № 115-рп awarded in the contest organized by the All-Russian Social Organization “Russian Youth Union”.
The key goal of the project is to promote and popularize technical and engineering professions of capital and regional universities. The project aims to highlight the activity of regional universities, describe technical faculties that prepare experts in accordance with the world tendencies in the integration of science, education, and production.
Video reports describe the history of foundation and development of universities, their specific and competitive advantages of technical majors. The short but concise footage includes key information about a university: key figures (number of government-financed positions, and passing grade), information about the Open Day, interviews with professors and students).
The ‘Universities of the Future’ project invites the faculties of Russia’s leading research and technology universities that conduct applied researches to support the innovative development of the country. At the first stage they have chosen eight faculties implementing innovative educational programmes in key Moscow and regional universities.
