The site of the SibFU in Russian Academic Excellence Project 5-100
In October 2015 the SibFU joined the federal Project 5-100, which is supposed to enhance the international competitiveness of the Russian universities among the world’s leading research and education centers. The project involves 21 universities now.
For joining the project, the SibFU has developed and presented the Program to improve the international competitiveness, which continues the SibFU Development Program for the 2011-2021 in the part of the arrangements aimed at the University to access the global research and education market. Applied significance of the program — the promotion of the SibFU in the international rankings.
Overall, the expected result of the Project 5-100 by the year 2020 is the entry of at least five Russian universities in the first hundred of the global education rankings.
Target model of University Development: SibFU as a world competence center of innovation, development and heritage preservation of northern (taiga and arctic) territories. Siberian Federal University-Corporation combining high level of basic and applied research with the training of personnel for high-quality production and sole proprietorship.
The Mission of the Project 5-100: comprehensive maintenance of rational use of unique territories rich in renewable resources, this maintenance is to combine balanced approach to the application of Eco technologies and energy-efficient technologies of natural resources management in the context of maximum environmental protection; creating of advanced educational research and innovation infrastructure; new knowledge and technologies advancement; creation of high value added production to facilitate the solving of crucial economics tasks.
The International Advisory Council is a new institution for the University formed for the purpose of supporting significant expansion of its international activities up to, and beyond, 2020.
Its role is to provide the University with high-level guidance on all aspects of increasing of the University’s competitive position in comparison with established international universities.
The Council monitors and reports the University’s progress towards internationalization and provides feedback, advice and recommendations to the Supervisory Board (the ‘Governing Body’) on re-positioning the University’s global reputation and growing its international network over the next six years.
The main tasks of the Council include:
position: Regents’ Professor, University of Arizona, Laboratory of tree-ring research (USA), Fellow of American Geophysical Union, Fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAA)
Herman H. (Hank) Shugart
position: W. W. Corcoran Professor of Environmental Sciences and Director of the Center for Regional Environmental Studies, the University of Virginia (USA), Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Fellow of American geophysics Union, Fellow of World Innovation Foundation, Fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAA)
Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Christiane Cornelia Schmullius
position: Chair, Department for Earth Observation, Institute of Geography, Faculty of Chemistry and Earth Sciences, Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena (Germany)
position: Professor, Director of the Institute of Dendrology, Polish Academy of Sciences (Poland), Research Associate and Graduate Faculty Member of Forestry, University of Minnesota (USA)
position: Chair Professor in Theoretical Chemistry, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (Sweden)
Prof. Joel Guiot
position: Director of Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), at European Centre for Research and Teaching of Geosciences (CEREGE) (France); Director of the interdisciplinary center for environmental studies ECCOREV; Director of the laboratory of Excellence OT-Med on Global Change and natural hazards in Mediterranean
The purpose of the StrAU development is:
To make a contribution to the development of efficient climate policies and economics of carbon both in Russia and other countries by means of advanced scientific research and training of highly qualified professionals with innovative business in interdisciplinary areas such as biogeochemistry of ecosystems, low-carbon economy, sustainable forestry and environmental management.
Siberia is a region with the unique biological diversity, various landscapes and ecosystems from steps to the Arctic area. Its geographical location is a challenge but allows developing the specific network of expedition centers, field research stations and involvement for globally international research and educational community to study and work at North Eurasia.
The purpose of the University internal development is to form a multidisciplinary subdivision involved in a wide range of international initiatives. The StrAU “BIOM TAIGA” will enhance SibFU position in specific subject ranking systems such as QS Environmental Sciences (top-200), QS Agriculture & Forestry Sciences (top-100), QS Earth & Marine Sciences (top-200).
The StrAU “BIOM TAIGA” will allow consolidating activities of SibFU various departments that are 40% of all the University international work, involving a wide scope of participants from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology to large transnational companies and international public organizations.
The StrAU participants have the best scientometrical index among SibFU research staff.
The School of Ecology and Geography will cooperate with many institutions of the Russian Academy of Sciences and will be involved into global initiatives and programs such as International Geosphere-Biosphere Program, IPCC, Montreal process, International forestry association, International Boreal Forest Research Association, UArctic, etc.
To improve the quality and duration of human’s life and the living standards under harsh environmental conditions, through the development of biotechnological and biomedical fields of studies such as genomics, microbiology, biopolymers and bioluminescence, biochemistry and physiology, biotechnologies, ecosystem productivity and nourishment quality.
(the aims, goals and target indicators achievement of the university competitive recovery program among world leading research educational centers and “roadmaps” for the period 2016-2017)
“Bioengineering cluster” StrAU is founded on the basis of the School of fundamental biology and biotechnology, which is the research and educational core of the SibFU biological field. The further formation of Cluster for fundamental and applied biology and biophysics will help to boost the concentration of research and advanced educational programs. More than 30% of Master and PhD programs, as well as PhD SibFU program, will be held within the integrated program of the cluster research area.
The StrAU provides high scientometrical results. For the recent 5 years period about 1/3 of all publications in Scopus have been made with these fileds, 40% of international agreements have been signed by the cluster participants. 3 projects of 5 megagrants are being carried out with the support of the Russian Federation Government .
The concentration of human, organizational and financial resources on the key research and technological tasks will allow increasing the number of international faculty members and students up to 25% in the nearest future.
The cluster structural subdivisions are the leaders in using e-learning and teaching in English at the university.
