Dmitri Medvedev has conferred with students and teachers of the key universities of Krasnoyarsk
First Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev has conferred with students and teachers of the key universities of Krasnoyarsk and discussed with them the prospects of the creation of the Siberian Federal University. It will be created on the basis of the Krasnoyarsk State University, the Krasnoyarsk State Architectural and Building Academy, the Krasnoyarsk Technological University and the University of Non-Ferrous Metals and Gold. According to Medvedev, “all the organising resolutions for the creation of the Siberian Federal University have been adopted and the needed documents have been issued.” At the same time, he warned against the risk of procrastinating the fulfilment of the project, of turning it into formality and of reducing the whole work to the merger of the four universities without achieving a new quality level.” Medvedev urged the organisers of the Siberian Federal University “not to bury the unique idea.” He reminded that only two such educational establishments would be created in Russia – the Siberian Federal University in Krasnoyarsk and the Southern Federal University in Rostov-On-Don. He stressed that those two universities “should really become the universities of the 21st century, to which students from all parts of Russia would come to study. Foreigners will also be able to study there on the basis of exchanges within the framework of the ’Bologna process.” “All those who will study at those unique universities should be proud of the diplomas they are going to get.” “Each university, to be integrated in the Siberian University, has its own history, its own accomplishments and its brand. It is very important to preserve all the positive aspects in those brands, and to make the name of the new university even more famous, than the names of its component parts.” According to Medvedev, the diplomas of the federal universities should be well known all over the country, so that their graduates will not have to explain that they studied at some educational establishment, created to replace the old ones. Before meeting students and teachers, Medvedev visited the information centre of the Krasnoyarsk Technological University, to be integrated in the Siberian University, and saw the accomplishments and finds of the key universities and colleges of Krasnoyarsk. He was shown space and aviation equipment, designed at the universities. It is used in fighter planes of the latest generation. Medvedev saw as well the unique chemical developments, which are already used in Krasnoyarsk, and the projects implemented in the development of mineral deposits. The heads of the universities stressed that all those instruments and chemicals had been created with the participation of students. Specialists from the Krasnoyarsk universities hope that “their research work will be continued after the creation of the Siberian University.” At the same time, they admit some efforts will have to be exerted for promoting their scientific finds under the new brand. Medvedev was shown a model of a student campus of the Siberian University, which is to accommodate 55,000 to 60,000 people, including students, teachers and their families. The Siberian University is to become an integrated complex combining education, scientific research and business, a centre for the development of innovation technologies and for the training of specialists of the international level. According to the plans of its organisers, the Siberian Federal University and the Southern Federal University should be put on the list of 100 best universities of the world by 2020.
