The competitiveness enhancement program implementation will be built around the strategic academic units (StrAU), i.e. structures substantially contributing to implementing the outlined measures and achieving target indicators.

   The StrAU development is expected through implementing promising projects, launching and renewing laboratories and research world-class schools in the field of physical and mathematical, natural, medical and social sciences and humanities, as well as through creating a favorable scientific and educational environment for training specialists and personnel pool in the relevant scientific and technological areas of research.

 

StrAU1: "Space Technologies for Countries with Emerging Economies"

 

The Goals of the Strategic Academic Unit:

 

→  Training highly qualified staff for Russia and more than 60 countries with developing economies and applying the results of space activities in various economic areas (geologic exploration, ecology, agriculture etc.)
