RUSSKY ISLAND, Primorye Territory, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Far Eastern Federal University “must become a strong intellectual base – the region has no future without it,” Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday, summing up the results of the conference on the use of the heritage of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) and development of Far Eastern Federal University.
“We cannot have standard universities. But we will use here the most contemporary standards, quite often ahead of our practice,” the premier said. “What has been accumulated in our educational system for ages must be reflected here,” he said.
“I do ask you to treat this as a common cause of state importance, the task of the development of Russia’s Far East,” the premier said.
Students of Far Eastern Federal University could have received education at Moscow State University or other high educational establishments, said Viktor Sadovnichy, the rector of Lomonosov Moscow State University, speaking on Thursday at the conference on the use of the heritage of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) and the development of Far Eastern Federal University. He dwelt on “Lomonosov and the future” program.
“A student holding two diplomas is preferable for work at the university,” Sadovnichy stressed.
The Moscow University rector said the program of integration, interaction between universities deserves being named after Lomonosov. He noted that Mikhail Lomonosov studied at several European universities.
Sadovnichy believes that post graduates need not necessarily move to Moscow. There must be dual scientific tutorship, the way this is already being done in cooperation with France.
The rector of Moscow State University made assurances that the Council of Rectors undertakes attracting teaching staff to Far Eastern Federal University.
Alexander Braverman, the head of the Federal Fund for Housing Construction Assistance, said that work would start as early as in February on the project for the construction of low-rise economy-class housing with the floor space of 480 square meters for university teachers in the Patrocles Bay. Another project to build housing with the floor space of 580 square meters will be undertaken in Trudovoye settlement.
Braverman suggested that the premier’s initiative for offering a low-interest mortgage system to researchers be spread to young teachers. This refers to modification of the Savings Bank’s 10-10-10 program (ten percent initial contribution, ten percent annual interest and repaying the loan in ten years).
