TOMSK, Dec 26 – RIA Tomsk. Creation in Tomsk one of the 15
world-class research and educational centers (REC), which should appear in

Under the decree of the president at least 15 RECs should be created in
Russia until 2024 on the basis of the integration of universities, scientific organizations
and enterprises in the real economy sector. In 2019, the Ministry of Education

expects, there will be a lot of competition between the regions.
"We must make efforts to get into the first five RECs as early as 2019.
The victory will be a well-deserved recognition for the scientists of the Tomsk
scientific and educational complex and regional authorities who are striving to
make the Tomsk region a reliable element of the new framework of scientific and
educational activities and the Russian economy", – the rector shared his

He emphasized that Tomsk needs to be actively involved in the struggle in
order to take leading position "on the map of Russian drivers". At
the same time TSU is ready to adjust its development program and assume the
function of integrator of the REC.
"We are able to gather around us all universities and research centers. We
need the support of the regional authorities and industrial companies. Thus,
the next five-year plan’s task is – to preserve the values of the imperial
university, to make a bold new step in another level of responsibility for the
university and for the region", – Galazhinsky said.
