"In a consortium, as well as in any association, it is always necessary to find a middle ground so that the interests of each partner are respected" Larisa Efremova, Vice-Rector of RUDN University for International Affairs
"In a consortium, as well as in any association, it is always necessary to find a middle ground so that the interests of each partner are respected" Larisa Efremova, Vice-Rector of RUDN University for International Affairs
September 16, Larisa Efremova took part in the panel discussion “Partnerships, consortia and network interactions in a new educational reality”. The topic of consortia was discussed by heads and experts from leading Russian universities.

In her speech, Larisa Efremova raised the topics of cluster cooperation and the importance of competencies that will help manage the international process in the field of networking. “First of all, we need to understand why the consortium is being created and what issues it solves.” The speaker noted the importance of communication between educational organizations, dialogue and respect for the interests of each partner. “The consortium should be partnership, where the interests of each university are taken into account, but they all follow a common goal.”

“Why did it take a long time to select partners for the consortium? All participants must be able to negotiate, develop and present common programs. After all, we represent a single face of the country!” said Larisa Efremova, Vice-Rector for International Affairs, RUDN University.

“I am telling you on the example of the African continent that we have highlighted things of particular interest to our African partners. As a business, as an education system and as a science. This is how thematic clusters were formed. And under this ideology, we were able to move on: to recruit students and build contacts.” said Larisa Efremova.

Vice-Rector presented a program of thematic clusters, which highlights things that are interesting to each specific partner (as a business, as an education system and as a science), and on the basis of these studies, further interaction is formed. “In the network space, respect and the ability to engage in dialogue are essential. And it doesn’t matter who your partner is — a small or a large business structure. ”

“International composition of students and teachers is important: we learn from each other to communicate,” noted Larisa Efremova, Vice-Rector for International Affairs, RUDN
