Full Text:


The launch of the Russian-Germany interstate project (the Russian-German Year of Scientific and Educational Cooperation 2018-2020) sets new requirements for the agenda formation for interstate cooperation in the field of education and science. The “Russian-German Roadmap for Cooperation in Education, Science, Research and Innovation” (the Roadmap) defines new opportunities for expanding cooperation between states in the educational and research fields, as well as developing economical innovations. The key directions of the cooperation are: “Large research infrastructure”, “Priorities”, “Young talents”, “Innovations, science and society”. The expansion of bilateral cooperation on a wide range of topics, the development of large research infrastructures and joint research projects in particular, will be carried out in the areas that are priority for both countries. By means of the Roadmap, young scientists should be supported, and the academic mobility of researchers, students and postgraduate students should be increased. It is also planned to enhance the transfer of research results to the real economy, as well as increase the advanced innovative business involvement in the partnership. One of the tasks that the organizers of the year face, is to create conditions for the public presentation of specialized events, as well as the dissemination of cooperation practices in the academic environment. For this purpose, a special website to gather the information from participants and organizers of events implemented in both countries, was launched ( The inclusion of innovative business in the year’s action field will create conditions for the formation of joint teams, both in the academic and professional environment, aimed at tackling new problems of states economies' innovative development.
