The introduction of the best Russian and French educational practices is intended to increase the respective countries’ competitiveness in relation to the modern Anglo-Saxon educational system. The penetration of new technologies into Russian and French universities stimulates innovation in the educational process of both countries. Russia and France are undergoing similar processes in terms of reforming their university systems in search of a new identity. Are these similarities only superficial in nature? Or are these systems truly similar and mutually complimentary? Will university clusters and new campuses make education in Russia and France more attractive for foreign students? Can the two countries offer competitive working conditions for lecturers and researchers? What can they do together? Are the existing academic exchange support mechanisms sufficient? How is the Russian-French roadmap in education and science being implemented? What is the role of the Trianon Dialogue, which named 2019 the year of “education and enlightenment”, in this process?
