One can hardly find a place in Russia with such an impressive number of implemented national projects as in the Krasnoyarsk Region. Our most focused “development points” have been determined in industry, power engineering and energy, research and education. Siberian Federal University, as a response to regional developmental challenges, was established in 2006 to train highly qualified specialists capable of working in any region of our country, including severe conditions of the Northern areas.

One can hardly find a place in Russia with such an impressive number of implemented national projects as in the Krasnoyarsk Region. Our most focused “development points” have been determined in industry, power engineering and energy, research and education. Siberian Federal University, as a response to regional developmental challenges, was established in 2006 to train highly qualified specialists capable of working in any region of our country, including severe conditions of the Northern areas.

Public Private Partnership in the Field of Science and Education

Siberian Federal University is an example of effective public private partnership in the field of education and science. The strategic objectives of the Krasnoyarsk krai development have determined the areas of government and business cooperation. The Federation, Krasnoyarsk krai government and private organisations take part in the development of the University. Today the University has about 70 agreements with strategic partners- employers.

For the 3-year period the University has been consecutively pursuing the policy of close cooperation with the largest Russian and international companies functioning in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Such cooperation includes not only specific requirements to the competence level of the University graduates, but also establishment of basic departments at enterprises, awarding of personal scholarships, organization of summer internships, involvement of company specialists in educational process and establishment of joint research and production centres like Gulidov’s Nonferrous Metals Plant.

The pilot project of human resources development for the largest oil producing company “Rosneft” could be considered as a striking example of such partnership. The company has been constructing the building for the Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Institute at the territory of the University campus having invested 890 million rubles in this project. The first stage of the institute construction development has been finished in September 2010. In its turn, with the active assistance of the Territory government and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, the University provides students’ training in accordance with the new requirements in the field of technology and specialisations. At the same time the company supports training of schoolchildren - the University prospective students - by organizing special “Rosneft” classes.

Last year the University won the “Vankorneft” company contest for ecological monitoring of the environment conditions during construction and operation of the oil-trunk pipeline part. Several large-scale projects have been launched in cooperation with JSC Information Satellite Systems - Reshetnev Company in order to promote the GLONASS satellite positioning system, to design on-board radio-electronic equipment, etc. The University develops projects on open pit mines reconstruction and determines gold-mining potential for such mining companies as “RUSAL-Achinsk” and “Vasilievsky rudnik”. SibFU has implemented joint projects with the National Foundation of HR Development and the Federal Space Agency.

The University has been awarded NATO grants for the establishment of regional research and educational network and the grant from the Federal Agency for Science and Innovation for the development of nano-industry infrastructure in the Russian Federation. Siberian Federal University students were among the winners of student project contests “Energy of development - 2009” organized by “RusHydro”.

Graduates with engineering education can easily undertake internships in large companies and get employed, while such plants as “Krastsvetmet”, “Rusal” and “Nornikel” are ready to hire them. Besides, young engineers from Krasnoyarsk are increasingly in demand by the enterprises of Saint-Petersburg, Kostroma and Novosibirsk. At present, the majority of engineers at the plant of Krasnoyarsk Institute of Nonferrous Metals and Gold named after Gulidov are the graduates of SibFU Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals and Material Science. Today, prospective specialists in mining engineering, geology and geotechnology undertake internships at “Taimyrsky” and “Oktyabrsky” mines, Norilsk nickel plant, “Talnakhskoe” and “Norilsk-1” mines.

The partners of the University support talented students and postgraduates by awarding 315 personal scholarships of 12 million rubles in total. Partner companies also sponsor academic exchange and educational activity programmes. Private companies and university graduates complement to the increasing of the Target Capital Fund.

Scientific development and the advancement of knowledge at Siberian Federal University are part of a long tradition of research that dates back to the early years of four universities that formed the basis of the merger. Basic or applied, theoretical or practical, research at Siberian Federal University covers the full range of modern thought and encourages interdisciplinary research.

Academic and socio-economic priorities are closely connected. Siberian socio-economic priorities suggest the following major research areas:

  • Mineral Exploration and Geological Engineering (Oil, Gas, Non-Ferrous and Precious Metals), Timber Resources
  • Hi-Tech Industries and Innovative Science Practices
  • Transportation
  • Satellite Technology and Telecommunications
  • Northern Community Development and Relocating
  • Environmental Engineering and Management
  • Local Economy and Management

Siberian Federal University, with close to 3 500 billion roubles ($140 million) in prospective research funding, will excel in outstanding research and creative activity that fuel discovery and advance knowledge. Research is undertaken in 36 faculties and helps to develop the dynamic and collaborative spirit of SibFUs research teams made up of professors, researchers and graduate students.

Research takes place both on campus and at the Institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Siberian Branch) making use of knowledge and skills of the faculty doing research at nationally and internationally recognized scientific centres. In addition, the university research is expected to benefit from the participation of international scientific community.

To reinforce its identity as a research intensive university, Siberian Federal University makes strong efforts to enable faculty members and students to perform their work at an internationally recognized standard. The university is expected to develop several basic research areas in collaboration with the Russian Academy of Sciences (Siberian Branch) and to create 20 new chairs and 55 new laboratories conducting research in crystal physics, physical and chemical biology, basic ecology, non-organic materials, physics, chemistry, computation.

Siberian Federal University is publishing its own journal which is supposed to involve prominent scholars in contributing to its content.

Graduate education and research go hand-in-hand. The great discoveries of the 21st century will undoubtedly come from the creative efforts of university faculty working closely with bright and motivated graduate students. Graduate students, particularly those pursuing the doctoral degree, broaden the knowledge base of their disciplines in countless ways. SibFUs students work one-on-one with the SibFUs faculty on selected research projects.

The universitys graduate programs have produced generations of professionals in a wide variety of disciplines, many of whom have risen to positions of prominence in Siberia, Russia and the world.
