Basic Research and Higher Education Program Conference breaks new ground

Arlington, VA April 22, 2002 University rectors shared the spotlight with graduate and undergraduate students in Krasnodar, Russia April 9-10 during a program-wide conference under the Basic Research and Higher Education (BRHE) program. The conference, organized by the U.S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) and the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation, and hosted by Kuban State University, brought together managers and participants from Research and Education Centers (RECs) in 16 Russian universities to showcase their scientific studies, share problems and ideas, and discuss ways to enhance and improve the integration of science education and research. Particular attention was given to activities that will strengthen communication among RECs and improve ties with international colleagues and industry.

Commenting on the conference, keynote speaker Dr. Yuri Shlenov, Deputy Minister of Education of the Russian Federation, noted that it is extremely rare to have rectors, senior professors, and students all participating in a meeting together.

Participants in the conference agreed to launch an English language immersion summer camp for REC students to improve their ability to take part in international scientific conferences. To foster a sense of community among the RECs, an e-journal will be launched, focusing on REC activities and events. The participants also announced the intention to increase opportunities for the support of young scientists and to move rapidly toward establishing technology transfer offices at the universities where centers are located.

BRHE seeks to transform natural science education in Russia by integrating high-quality research with education in the university setting.

Through three-year $1.05 million grants, BRHE establishes Research and Education Centers in Russian universities which give faculty and students the opportunity to take part in world-class research as a part of und
