For the first time China hosts SCO Education Week. RUDN University intends to extend the list of joint programs with SCO countries
First results of the Week- “Education without borders” conference, negotiations with the authorities of Dalian University of Foreign Languages, round tables on “Regional studies”, “Ecology”, “Energy production”, “Nano-technology”, “IT”, “Economics” and “Teaching science”. RUDN University is represented by Larisa Efremova, Vice-Rector for international academic mobility talking on “SCO University – innovation project of multilateral cooperation”.
The Week is a dialogue of representatives of SCO state bodies, lecturers and managers of SCO universities. They analyze joint Master’s programs, curricula, effectivity of network cooperation, reveal problems and make suggestions and recommendations for SCO ministries of education to correct development concepts. The Week is a site for signing bilateral and multilateral agreements. We think we will sign a number of agreements and initial new joint programs in Economics and Teaching sciences. Here we should understand that a good graduate student is first of all a good undergraduate student and SCO University project should be strengthened in the field of joint Bachelor’s programs. We also aim at activating preparatory courses and continuing education programs and coordinating and recognizing educational standards. This will strengthen research and academic cooperation of our countries and provide highly- qualified staff for social and economic development of SCO countries.

The initiative was brought forth by Russia – for 9 years the Week has been held in different regions of Russia – Moscow, Belgorod, Altai, Ufa, etc. The agreement was signed 10 years ago and after 10 years of active cooperation it was agreed to hold the meeting in Dalian University, China.
