During the visit, an agreement was reached to start implementing the joint master’s programmes as early as this year.

According to ASU Vice Rector for Digitalization, Innovations and Priority Projects Aleksey Titov, it is important that our universities complement each other in the logic of the project. It is obvious that MSUFP is developing with the support of the industry, and new laboratories and spaces for collective use are being created.

A return visit of the MSUFP delegation to Astrakhan State University is scheduled for the second half of March.
