The agreement sets the terms of student and academic staff exchange programmes, joint research projects, academic and cultural programmes, and exchange of scientific journals. The agreement also implies exchange programmes, projects and grants for students of partner universities.
– Voronezh State University has been working in close collaboration with China for many years. There is a Russian Language Centre at the Qiongzhou University, opened together with VSU. A group of VSU chemists has recently taken part in a conference on technology in Qingdao. Over 2000 specialists from China have studied at VSU during the last 10 years. Managers’ training is an important issue both in China and in Russia. VSU is one of the 20 Russian universities whose graduates get senior positions at the federal level. There is a Presidential Managers’ Training Programme in Russia, and VSU is one of the universities actively participating in this programme. Establishing a partnership with China is an important strategic step, all the more important considering the present political situation in the World. We are eager to work in collaboration with Chinese organizations and universities aimed at the prosperity of our countries, – said Dmitry Endovitsky.
