The number of budget places in regional universities will increase in Russia
From 2021, Russia will begin to annually increase the number of budget places in regional universities. Priority will be given to territories that need modern, young, promising personnel. This was announced at a meeting of the Presidium of the State Council and the Council on Science and Education by President Vladimir Putin.
According to him, for four years about 70 billion rubles will be additionally allocated for these purposes. He asked the government to implement a package of measures to modernize the entire system of higher education in the regions. To solve this problem, specialized and other national projects will be subordinated.
The President proposed updating or starting the construction of modern campuses in the regions with classrooms, sports facilities, technology parks, housing for students, graduate students and teachers. According to him, this year 22 billion rubles will be allocated from the federal budget for updating the material and technical base and major repairs of universities.
Putin also agreed to empower the regions to develop not only colleges and technical schools, but also universities located on their territories. The authorities will be able, with the availability of resources, to directly finance the development programs of local universities and their infrastructure, regardless of departmental subordination.
