One can hardly find a place in Russia with such an impressive number of implemented national projects as in the Krasnoyarsk Region. 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.
The 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 serve the needs of the Region by providing high-quality practice-oriented higher education by means of close integration between education, business and research/innovation, enabling the graduates to successfully market themselves both locally and globally.
