Pavilion F, conference hall F20 (2nd floor)

The internationalization of education has become a defining feature of the competitiveness of higher education institutions, both externally and internally. It ensures the integration of national, intercultural, and global standards in collaborative research and the provision of services by universities and higher education systems. The new realities are creating new challenges for Russia’s educational and scientific community that need to be met to contribute to a successful equitable dialogue between Russia and its foreign partners. How will the Russian educational and scientific community collaborate with its foreign partners from ‘unfriendly’ countries? What are the main barriers for Russian educational organizations to enter new international educational markets? How can the experience of network universities be used for the internationalization of Russian education? What needs to change in the regional activities of Russian universities? What are the positive and negative aspects of the internationalization of higher education?
