ASU Researchers and Their Kyrgyz Colleagues Will Compare the Caspian Sea with Issyk-Kul Lake

Anna Fedotova, ASU Vice Rector for Research Activities, represented our university atthe meeting ofthe Russian-Kyrgyz Consortium ofTechnical Universities. ASU has actively joined the network cooperation and proposed its research projects.

Astrakhan State University joined the consortium in 2012. The union of technical universities accounts for 24 Russian and 8 Kyrgyz higher educational institutions. It focuses on network cooperation in training students of engineering and technical majors. The consortium gives BA and MA students an opportunity to receive a double-degree diploma. Astrakhan State University has now prepared draft agreements with all 8 Kyrgyz universities and is planning to sign them in the near future.

«These agreements will mainly cover network cooperation in preparing and implementing large-scale research projects,» Anna Fedotova says, «We also count on support of Rossotrudichestvo that actually guided the foundation and functioning of the consortium.»
