MOSCOW, August 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union’s sanctions have not affected Russia’s international scientific cooperation development, the Russian Education and Science Ministry said on Wednesday.
“All the events planned within the framework of the Russia-EU Year of Science 2014 are held as planned,” the ministry press service told ITAR-TASS.
According to the ministry, the annual meeting of the Russia-EU joint committee on science and technology cooperation was successfully held in Moscow on June 20. The international conference Science of the Future, an upcoming event of the Russia-EU Year of Science will be held according to schedule, on September 20.
The EU sanctions have also unaffected the Global Education program. Using this program that was approved by the Russian government on June 20, 2014, Russian citizens who entered leading foreign universities can count on full compensation of their education. “Not a single foreign university from the list approved by the government has refused to participate in the program over the sanctions,” the project manager Kseniya Ivanenko told ITAR-TASS.
The Russia-EU Year of Science 2014 launched last November is the initiative of the European Commission and the Russian Ministry of Education and Science. Its goal is to demonstrate scientific achievements and improve the Russia-Europe fruitful technology cooperation potential.
