Russia and India continue to strengthen cooperation in various areas. Education, culture and science are important areas of cooperation, therefore, joint research, student exchange, and cultural events help strengthen friendly relations between the peoples of the two countries.

SPbPU regularly participates in educational exhibitions in India. As part of its work to promote Russian higher education and strengthen scientific cooperation, the Polytechnic takes part in a large-scale specialized event – the Russian-Indian Educational Summit, which started on April 11 in New Delhi.

The head of the SPbPU International Cooperation Department, Vladimir Khizhnyak, represented our university at a round table dedicated to technical universities. The summit participants got acquainted with educational programs and areas of cooperation between the Polytechnic and technical universities of India.

We believe that it is necessary to unite the efforts of universities in the BRICS countries to solve a number of complex problems. For example, we propose to jointly develop immersive education programs. This is an extremely effective way of teaching and learning, which is a pedagogical approach that uses immersive technologies, including realistic simulations and scenarios that allow students to apply knowledge and skills in a practical context, noted Vladimir Khizhnyak in his speech.

At the panel discussion “Russia-India-BRICS”, Vladimir Dmitrievich shared the successful experience of scientific and educational cooperation of SPbPU within the organization.

Anyone can visit the Polytechnic stand, participate in discussions and negotiations on a wide range of issues of promising formats of scientific and educational Russian-Indian cooperation, especially relevant against the backdrop of Russia’s chairmanship of BRICS this year.

In the era of a multipolar world, where one of the main players is the association of BRICS countries, SPbPU sees in cooperation with Indian universities, industrial enterprises and scientific clusters an opportunity to create sustainable partnerships that contribute to the promotion of Russian education, as well as the development of science and technology within the international community. This strategic direction of cooperation opens up new horizons for innovative discoveries, research and exchange of experience, which allows us to create a future based on mutual understanding, respect and teamwork,” Dmitry Arsenyev, Vice-Rector for International Affairs of SPbPU, emphasized the importance of partnership between the two countries.

Today, among the 12 partner universities of SPbPU are the Indian University of Technology Bombay, the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chandigarh University and many others.

Deputy Head of the Department of International Scientific and Foreign Economic Relations Olga Vasilyeva told the summit participants what joint projects the Polytechnic University is implementing with Indian universities and research centers. These are the development of new materials and nanotechnologies, information technology, agriculture, ecology, waste recycling, biotechnology, etc. For example, Polytechnic researchers are involved in projects that are relevant for India, such as the creation of new semiconductor power electronics devices applicable in energy networks, electric vehicles, high speed trains. They are also developing modern diamond processing technologies and conducting research on the domestication of agricultural crops.
