The project for education modernization, initiated by the political party “United Russia”, started in Bashkortostan. The solemn ceremony has taken place in Ufa, in the House of the Government RB. The deputy Prime-Minister of the Government RB, the acting Minister of education Zugura Rakhmatullina, the Chairman of the Union of Rectors RB Murat Guzairov, representatives of the Republican institutes and employers have taken part in it.

The presentation of the project’s concept, held by the deputy curator of the project “INFO-VUZ”, the leading expert Alexander Zatesa, has taken place within the frames of the ceremony.

“Per se the project represents the all-Russian student’s network, available both for the students, the school-leavers, their parents and even the employers, welcomed to take part in the project as partners” – AlexanderZatesa explained – “In our understanding education doesn’t meant just an institute and future professions but the connection of culture, science, public society and its history, so to our opinion the institutes have to be responsible for those members of the society, which are formed at them. This model is the base of our project”.

The project “INFO-VUZ” uses the world experience and methods, worked out by the leading Russian and foreign experts, which positively recommended themselves in the everyday practice of the leading Russian institutes.

Earlier the project successfully started in Ural federal district. The Ural Federal University has become the main site for launching the project in Ural zone. On November 19 the project was launched in Buryatia, on November 26 – in Tyumen region, on December 10 – in Udmurtia, on December 13 – in Murmansk region and in Tatarstan and on December 14 – in Republic of Komi. It is planned the project will be launched in all Russian regions during six months.

A similar project is already working in Bashkortostan – the information and educational portal “Bashkortostan”, opened at the Bashkir State Pedagogical University by M. Akmullah. This is the unique channel and both teachers and pupils, irrespective of their residence, may get the access to the systematized book funds.
