UTMN Stays in the 5-100 Second Group

Project 5-100 30 October 2017
A meeting of the International Council on Competitiveness Enhancement of Leading Russian Universities was held in Yekaterinburg. For 2 days, the Council members examined universities’ roadmaps for 2018-2020, analyzed results achieved and probed the clarity of their development priority system.  

As a result of the meeting, 21 universities were allowed to continue participating in the 5-100 project. 

“The results of the universities’ work demonstrate progress,” commented Olga Golodets, Chairman of the Council and Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation. “Almost all participants have shown stable growth, therefore each university stays in the programme and will receive further financial support”.

The Council divided the universities into 3 groups, defined by their performance.

The University of Tyumen firmly maintained its position in the second group.

The second group also includes Kazan Federal University, RUDN University, I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University, Tomsk Polytechnic University, and the Yeltsin Ural Federal University.

According to the Council, the top group of universities consists of the National Research University Higher School of Economics, ITMO University, National Nuclear Research University MEPhi, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Novosibirsk State University, the National University of Science and Technology MISIS, and the National Research Tomsk State University.

The other participating universities were placed in the third group. 

“No radical changes have happened. The top group was defined long ago, and this is unlikely to change. Members of the second group never agree with their position and want very much to enter the top group. And the third group consists of universities which entered the programme later than everyone else. That is why they face more difficulties,” commented Deputy Chairman of the Council, Andrey Volkov.   

15 universities have been part of the Project since its inception in 2013, with the rest, including UTMN, joining in 2015.

10 billion rubles is granted annually to finance the development of the universities participating in the project. Universities from the top group receive 780 million rubles per year, and the rest is distributed between the second- and third-group universities. The allocated funds are used to improve international exchange, recruit international professors and enhance citations per faculty.
