BERLIN, May 22 (Itar-Tass) — More than 300 joint projects have been implemented in the Russian-German Year of Education, Science and Innovations, Free University of Berlin President Peter-Andre Alt said on Friday.
The year aimed to display the powerful potential of Germany-Russia interaction in education, science and innovations, German Education and Research Minister Annette Schavan said. In her words, the mission was accomplished.
Russian Weeks were held at 60 German schools, the minister said. “That was a dynamic year full of new ideas and projects,” she said.
“A lot has been done over the past year,” ex-Russian Education and Science Minister Andrei Fursenko, appointed as a presidential aide, said. “This is not the end of the year, but a phase in our cooperation. Germany is the main partner of Russia in research and development,” he said.
The two education ministries signed a cooperation agreement. The Free University of Berlin and the St. Petersburg State University agreed to interact.
