On March 20, Vadim Smirnov, an assistant from the Office of the President of the Russian Federation for Interregional and Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries, visited the Polytechnic University. The main purpose of the visit was a meeting with the rector of SPbPU Andrey Rudsky and holding a meeting of the working group on the “Slavic Universities” project.

An agreement on a visit to SPbPU by a representative of the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation was reached during negotiations atWorld Youth Festival, held in early March. Then the rector of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Andrei Rudskoy acted as a key speaker at the events of the festival’s business program – round tables “Youth Policy 2030: the contribution of Russian-national (Slavic) universities in the CIS countries” and “Convergence of sciences in the EAEU: the potential and opportunities of Slavic universities.”

The main topic of the meeting on March 20 at the Polytechnic University was the development of interaction in the network of Russian-national (Slavic) universities, the possibility of broadcasting best practices, taking into account the experience of the Polytechnic University as a coordinator of cooperation with the 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 key regions for Russia,” noted Vadim Smirnov. “We highly appreciate the successful practice of what the Polytechnic University has already done and your initiatives to promote, first of all, engineering education.”

Over the past few years, the mutual integration of Russian and national (Slavic) universities has been noticeably growing, including the impetus given by the first “Slavic Horizon” summit, held in May 2023 at St. Petersburg Polytechnic University. The Polytechnic Institute initiated a number of projects not only for the BRU and RAU, but also for the Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University (KRSU) and the Russian-Tajik Slavic University. Among them are the opening of “Boiling Point” spaces at Slavic universities, the launch of a number of engineering and technical research projects, and holding design and analytical sessions in each of the Slavic universities to increase efficiency and focus the implementation of their development programs.

We believe that we must direct all our potential, all experience and opportunities to ensure that the role of Slavic universities in their countries and regions is maximally strengthened. So that these universities become a model, a showcase of all the best that is in Russian education, a point of attraction for the most talented students of our fraternal countries. As the country’s leading engineering university, Polytechnic University will make every effort to develop the technological and engineering potential of Slavic universities,” Andrei Rudskoy emphasized at the meeting.

During his visit to the Polytechnic University, Vadim Smirnov also got acquainted with the areas of work and projects carried out by leading scientific and educational centers of SPbPU.
