Fifty-one Russian universities have acquired the status of innovation and technological centers in their respective regions. This decision was taken on the basis of the results of the competition, which was attended by 121 universities from 63 regions. These universities were appointed the centers of innovation development and growth points for the economy and social development of the regions.
The selection of universities has been implemented on the basis of two expert evaluations. One of them was conducted by Russian employing companies, and the second one – by experts from the professional community and representatives of the universities. The flagship universities become the premises for various innovative engineering centers, and develop socio-economic, engineer, and pedagogical educational programs.
