The Board for increasing the competitiveness of the leading universities of the Russian Federation among the world's leading research and education centers, chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova, held a regular meeting, where members reviewed the reports of universities participating in Project 5-100 on the implementation of the Road Maps as well as the achievements of the program and the presence of a clear system of development priorities. Following the meeting, the Council recommended the RF Ministry of Science and Education to continue rendering state support to the 21st university.
The winning universities were divided into three groups, each including seven universities. The distribution of universities in three groups provides for subsequent differentiation of the state support provided to universities - participants of the Project.
5-100 Project began its history in 2013, and is aimed at promoting and increasing the competitiveness of Russian education. By 2020, a group of leading universities should be formed. They will be able to comply with global development trends and respond to global changes.
Peoples' Friendship University of Russia (RUDN University) began participating in the project in 2015, following the results of a competition for state support under the Project 5-100.
