Russia and the European Union countries ought to retain research and educational partnership
It said Mark Franco, European Commission Russian office head. He was addressing a Moscow seminar on, "The 4th Environment of Russia-EU Rapprochement". "Russia ought to carry on research and educational partnership with European Union countries. To do that, they need a sort of Road Map-both sides will benefit of it," he emphasized. EU countries have ample chances to improve education, recognize many other countries' education certificates, and coordinate related efforts with Russia. All that will not take considerable sums, reassured Mr. Franco. Research and education will be entitled to the biggest allocations in 2007 into 2013, he added. Russian-EU cultural, research and educational contacts are extremely promising, pointed out the prominent European Commission officer. Mutual confidence in specialist training quality is a practical stride to get Russia and the European Union closer together, Andrei Fursenko, Russia's Education and Research Minister, said in his turn. The EU is growing to realize ever clearer that confidence in other countries' professional education quality is necessary, added the minister. "As we see it, progress toward integration is to proceed not from formal arrangements-that is, education certificate recognition, but from essential confidence. I mean confidence in education quality," he substantiated his point. "Research costs are increasing with every passing day. Applied research can pay its own way, to an extent. Fundamental researchers, on the contrary, are working at a loss, as before," stressed Mr. Fursenko. Theoretical research ought to be funded through partner countries' pooled efforts, while international foundations will reimburse fundamental science expenditures, as he sees the desired arrangement. Russia is well aware of its priorities, and is willing to join hands with the European Union wherever both Parties share priorities, said the minister
