  • (1888PressRelease) November 11, 2017 - The main subject of the Forum was the development of human capital. One of the most important topics discussed during the large-scale event was the collaboration between Russian and Kazakh universities in the sphere of research.

    Vladimir Putin came forward with a proposal of establishing joint Russian-Kazakh research centers on the basis of the leading higher educational institutions of two regions. As an example the President cited the collaborative development of Ural Federal University with the partners from Kazakhstan in the sphere of reducing the energy intensity of production. He underlined that its large-scale implementation will allow not only to conserve energy resources, but as well to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which is of significant importance for a number of regions both in Kazakhstan and in Russia.

    The President noted that Russia and Kazakhstan agreed to extend relations between regional universities and added that education is a key sphere of the human capital development.

    Another important initiative discussed by the Presidents of two countries was the organization of joint Olympiads for school students of Russia and Kazakhstan in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. This proposal was put forward by Nursultan Nazarbayev in the course of his opening speech at the Forum.

    This initiative might open up new opportunities for the development of academic collaboration between two countries. Today 928 students from Kazakhstan study at Ural Federal University.
