Siberian State Medical University joined the strategic academic leadership program "Priority-2030" and became the only medical university in the Siberian Federal District that was selected for the program.
The Ministry of Education of Russia chose 106 universities from 49 Russian cities, including 11 medical ones. These institutions will receive a basic part of the grant equal to 100 mln rubles.
“This is a big step forward for us and a sign that SibMed is developing according to the national agenda. We worked on the development program for a year. All key departments of the University were involved in this process. Today I can say with confidence that this is a victory of the entire team. The main idea of our program is to change the University to form a healthy society. I want to thank all my colleagues for their courage in shaping the future," commented SibMed Rector Evgeny Kulikov.
SibMed aims to become a world-class university, the country's largest hub for the development and implementation of medical technologies.
The SibMed development program involves the implementation of several strategic projects that are aimed at achieving national goals in the field of healthcare.
Universities taking part in the program will develop and spread the best practices in research, innovation and education. Besides, they will make life and work in the regions of Russia more appealing, for foreign students and scientists in particular.
SibMed was also recommended for a special part of the grant in "Industry (regional) leadership". The coming days are going to see a face-to-face defense. The results will be announced later.
