Siberian Federal University
One can hardly find a place in Russia with such an impressive number of implemented national projects as in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Our most focused “development points” have been determined in industry, power engineering and energy, research and education. Siberian Federal University, as a response to regional developmental challenges, was established in 2006 to train highly qualified specialists capable of working in any region of our country, including severe conditions of the Northern areas.
Siberian Federal University was founded by merging 5 major Krasnoyarsk institutions of higher education. Among the members of the University Board of Trustees there are representatives of large companies, politicians and scientists. The Chairman of the Board is Dmitry Medvedev, the Prime Minister of Russia.
The mission of Siberian Federal University is to create an advanced education, research and innovation infrastructure and to promote new knowledge and technologies to meet the challenges of social and economic development of the Siberian Federal District, as well as to form the human resources potential — competitive experts in the priority areas of the Siberian and Russian Federation development, corresponding to the modern intellectual requirements and meeting international standards.
The university campus in Krasnoyarsk includes 30 dormitories, 24 study buildings, a building accommodating the library and the university administration offices. A University Assembly Hall is to be put into operation in 2015.
SibFU provides unique opportunities for both research and education. Since the university foundation its material and equipment base has been enlarged 5 times due to special-purpose investments.
The SibFU research analytic Common use center “Knowledge-intensive research and analytic methods of new mineral raw and and nano-materials”, which is the infrastructure element of the university innovative system, allows to handle massive cross-disciplinary problems in the field of hi-tech.
