НГТУ им. Р.Е. Алексеева стал опорным университетом

The Expert Council of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation determined the winners of the second stage of the competition for creating basic universities. Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University n.a. R.E. Alekseev is among 8 universities that will receive co-financing of the development programme at the federal level. The other 14 universities that are included in the second group will receive audit and expert support from the federal center and grants from the regional budgets.

The universities-winners of the second stage of the competition were selected after consideration of 86 applications.

The Minister of Education and Science Mrs. Olga Vasilieva speaking about the results of the second stage of the competition for creating basic universities, noted that the members of the Expert Council individually reviewed each application taking into account the development programmes of each university, as well as the regions’ position on their relevance and further support.

From the point of view of NNSTU Rector Sergey Dmitriev the purpose of the modern university is to be an integrator of scientific, educational and social activities in the region. NNSTU has already done a lot in this direction: the university not only trains engineers for leading enterprises of the region, but also successfully collaborates with them in the fields of research and development. NNSTU scientists conduct serious work on a number of relevant research trends including those focused on the programme "National Technological Initiative". These requirements apply to basic universities, which status NNSTU has awarded, and it will be definitely an incentive to continue work at a new level.
