A comment

From Mikhail Mishustin’s opening remarks at an operational meeting with Deputy Prime Ministers, January 24, 2022

“Creation of educational and industrial clusters is envisaged as part of new socio-economic initiatives that have been developed to achieve national development goals approved by the President,” Mikhail Mishustin noted at a meeting with vice-premiers on January 24.

The clusters will be created as part of the new federal project “Professionality”.

All this will help to bring the system of secondary vocational education as close as possible to the needs and demands of employers, will allow to form a flow of specialists in areas that are in demand by business, and for graduates to find a job faster.

In total, over the next three years, it is planned to create 210 such clusters in the country – 70 clusters annually. 100 million rubles will be allocated from the federal budget for each of them. This money will help colleges purchase special educational equipment and develop new educational programs together with enterprises. Part of the funding for the development of clusters will be invested by the enterprises themselves.

Applications for state support will be sent by the regions, as well as federal executive bodies in charge of institutions of secondary vocational education. The recipients of subsidies will be determined by the Ministry of Education based on the results of a competitive selection.

The federal budget for the next three years provides for 21 billion rubles to support educational and industrial clusters – 7 billion rubles annually.
