MOSCOW, January 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's President Vladimir Putin will visit the MIFI national nuclear research university here on Wednesday, the Kremlin press service reports.
"At a tea-party, the Head of State will meet with scholarship-recipients and winners of scientific competitions to discuss higher-education and studentry-related matters of current importance," a press service official pointed out. Students of MIFI proper and those from the university's branches in Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk, Tomsk, Kaluga, Nizhny Novgorod, and Rostov Regions have been invited to the meeting.
MIFI (Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute, the abbreviation is kept intact without codification) is one of the first institutions of higher learning to be granted the status of a national research university several years ago. MIFI conducts fundamental research. It has established close contacts with the Rosatom Corporation in the training of specialists for the nuclear power sector, and maintains permanent contacts with foremost foreign institutes.
Putin's meeting with students will be held in the run-up to the Tatiana Day -- the Day of Russian Studentry -- which is marked on January 25. The President regularly meets with students, on the occasion of their "professional" holiday as well.
Last year, for example, on the eve of Tatiana Day, the Head of State met with representatives of student sports clubs. A year earlier, Vladimir Putin, the then Prime Minister, had visited Tomsk Polytechnical University on Jan. 25 and met with students of Tomsk-based higher learning establishments.
