GORKI, March 18 (Itar-Tass) – Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Monday, March 18, signed a resiolution ordering additional financial support to leading universities in Russia.
“I have signed a resolution on measures of support to leading Russian universities,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his deputies. “They are different but there are leading ones and there are ones that are led.”
“We will provide nine billion roubles from the budget to this end. Subsidies will be distributed after a review of universities’ programmes aimed to make them more competitive,” the prime minister said.
According to Medvedev, these programmes shold be mobile, up-to-date and effective. “Specialists have to be hired, including foreign teachers, of course. And universities should certainly keep young teachers who are engaged in scientific work and research projects,” he said.
One of the tasks is to increase the number of students who come to study in Russia from other countries. “Because this is the quality mark of our universities,” he added.
“The Council for Increasing the Competitiveness of Leading Universities will deal with this,” the prime minister said.
