He noted that TPU is the leading in Russia in terms of engineering innovation, which is reflected in international rankings. For CESAER Tomsk Polytechnic University is interesting because it is geographically located east of all the other members of the association and can act as an intermediary in the cooperation of European and Asian technical universities.

"We decided to change our model of presence in the association and strengthen our role as we are the only Russian university (at CESAER). <...> TPU is also a member of the association of leading technical universities in Russia and China, therefore we launched an initiative that was supported by the Secretary General of CESAER to make TPU a bridge between the two associations", – Kiryanova told.

Details of the development of TPU and CESAER interaction in the new logic, according to the university press service, will be the subject of further discussions. Bohmert did not rule out that the next meeting of representatives of universities participating in the association could be held in Tomsk.

Earlier it was reported that TPU was founded in 1896 by Emperor Nicholas II as the Tomsk Practical Technological Institute. Since 2013, TPU has been participating in the "5-100" global competitiveness improvement program, which aims to ensure that by 2020 at least five universities of the Russian Federation are included in the hundred best universities of the world. Following the results of the last defense of the "road maps" in the fall of 2018, Tomsk Polytechnic University is in the second group of the project.
