The International Universities Conference
23-24 March 2012, The Savoy Hotel, Moscow, Russia
The representatives of International departments of different universities from 25 countries were summoned at the conference.
The main goal of the conference was successfuly achieved through discussions of cooperation between universities in the following directions:
- Academic exchange of students between universities (free or partially paid tuition fee) for university development and promotion.
- Tutors exchange. Teaching a specific course to students at their university instead of bringing groups of students to the foreign tutor’s university (fully or partially paid).
- Creating joint educational programs. Providing interactive courses.
- Joint grant applications. Exchange of educational products.
It was the first time that the unique workshop format (prescheduled online B2B appointments) was used for meetings between universities. All participants noted that this was the most efficient way for establishing cooperation and now it has become the main feature of the future IUNC conferences.
