HSE Among the Leaders in Project 5-100

HSE has become one of three Russian universities to receive maximum points for the implementation of the Russian Academic Excellence Project. These results were announced following a meeting of the Council on Enhancing the Competitiveness of Leading Russian Universities among Global Research and Education Centres.

The meeting of the Council, which includes leading Russian and international experts, was held on March 17-18 and chaired by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets.

During the Council meeting, Vadim Radaev, HSE First Vice Rector, discussed HSE’s results and prospects for development. He noted that HSE has improved its position in international rankings, including subject rankings, due to participation in Project 5-100. He also outlined the steps taken to attract international students and lecturers, new research projects, strengthening interdisciplinary relations, interdisciplinary studies at the university, and other innovations.

The Council assessed the universities’ achievements in pursuing competitiveness enhancement programmes under this project.

Following the Council meeting, the universities received expert recommendations which they will apply as they develop road maps for the 4th stage of Project 5-100, to be defended before the Council in October 2017.

The amount of funds allocated to universities for implementing competitiveness enhancement programmes under the 4th stage of Project 5-100 will be determined by the Council.
