In the next 10 years, Russian universities – the winners of the federal program “Priority-2030” are planning to create more than 300 new specialties. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko.
The Deputy Prime Minister noted that the work of universities to transform and create new areas of study is a response to the request of the real sector of the economy for training personnel with digital competencies.
“The training of highly qualified personnel is the most important tool for achieving national goals, which were defined by Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is important for the Government that our universities, which received mega grants of 1 billion rubles under the Priority 2030 program, not only presented transformation programs, but also provided for the creation of new faculties and areas of study. I think this is a worthy answer to the market’s demand. In total, over 300 new specialties are planned to be created in these universities in the next 10 years.
