The Krasnoyarsk Territory administration has presented a large-scale project for reforming the region's higher education system
The system unites 14 state and two commercial higher educational establishments and 9 branches of other higher educational establishments throughout the country. The project provides for opening a single national university in the region in 2007 on the local scientific center's premises. The projects' authors contend that a national university would make it possible to exclude unwilling financial outlays and duplication in training specialists simultaneously in different higher schools and thus train elite specialists who will be real leaders in technological progress. Estimates indicate that by uniting several already existing higher educational establishments, the Krasnoyarsk National University will be able to admit 50,000-60,000 students. Krasnoyarsk Territory governor Alexander Khloponin told reporters that the region, which has strong potential in raw materials and industry, "will soon need a serious influx of highly skilled specialists adapted not only to a market economy, but also to high technologies." The Scientific and Industrial Association of Applied Mechanics in Zheleznogorsk, which produces up to 70% of different Russian space vehicles, could serve as "as a fundamental platform," project authors said. The project was highly rated by Russian Minister of Education Andrei Fursenko who is marking his second day in Krasnoyarsk heading a ministry group of leading specialists. Mr. Fursenko learned that the reforms are not universally popular when two young men approached him, shouting "No to the educational reform!" and threw eggs at him at his meeting with students at the Krasnoyarsk House of Teachers. Mr. Fursenko remained calm, removed his coat and asked the audience not to react. "Dialogue is important in principlein any reform," he said. The Main Interior Department of the Krasnoyarsk Territory reported that the two men had been detained and brought to a police station in Krasnoyarsk's central district. The suspects called themselves "young Komsomol members."
