The “PROJECT YOURSELF!” project is aimed at forming international teams of talented students to implement projects — when representatives of different Master programs come together to solve a specific interdisciplinary task. In 2020, RUDN University offers two projects: “Environmental Design of a Sustainable Urban Environment”, where Masters of the Faculty of Ecology and the Academy of Engineering and the Agrarian and Technological Institute can participate, and “Human Rights in the Global Economy”, which may be of interest to students of the Faculty of Philology, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Law Institute and the Faculty of Economics.
