In 2020

Summer School 2020 was the fourth project organized by the Institute of Business Process Management and Economics at the Siberian Federal University.

That year, foreign students from partner universities of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan acceded to the participants from Russia.

Because of the difficulties caused by CV-pandemic foreigner participants could not attend the Summer School 2020, so organizers decided to hold the school on-line. Thus School 2020 became the pilot project in the implementation of distance learning.

However, this format of lectures and seminars had many advantages. The tutors used modern Internet platforms. So, the lectures were held in Zoom, which made it possible to vary and combine different forms of work with students. At the workshops the Miro platform was added, which contained all the necessary tools for creating co-project. The Telegram chat provided prompt communication and support to prevent participants from various difficulties.

It should be pointed out that such a training format allowed to attract more qualified trainers and experts from both Russia and abroad than in previous years.

The school covered issues on the Russian and foreign experience of business projects operating in accordance with the principles of socio-economic responsibility.

In the final task, the participants analyzed Russian enterprises for their compliance with the goals of sustainable development and social orientation. It resulted in working out an action plan for the development of companies in this direction.

In 2019

The International summer school-2019 “Global entrepreneurship in the real and virtual reality: challenges and opportunities for business” became the third large project of cooperation between the Siberian Federal University (Krasnoyarsk, Russia), the Krasnoyarsk regional public organization “INTERRA” (Krasnoyarsk, Russia) and the public association “Frischluft” (Berlin, Germany).

During classes participants of the Summer School-2019 got useful information, and then this necessary theoretical knowledge was enriched by the practice at enterprises under guidance of entrepreneurs. So representatives of socially-oriented entrepreneurship in Krasnoyarsk shared their successful business ideas. Proprietors of the firm “” told about collecting things that had become unnecessary in everyday life, making them marketable and further selling. As for severely damaged things the entrepreneurs recycled them.

The company “EcoDesign Hub” held master classes on making items from recycled materials, which could be safely used in the different interiors.

The representatives of the cooperative society “Kalina-Malina” (united farms of the Novosibirsk and Kemerovo regions, Krasnoyarsk and Altai territories) told about the difficulties which farmers faced making and selling their products, and how combining efforts helped to overcome these obstacles.

The students used the knowledge they received during trainings and in the process of communicating with Krasnoyarsk entrepreneurs in practice working out and presenting their own projects.

In 2018

The International Summer School “Smart technologies in social entrepreneurship” continued the project “Global entrepreneurship in real and virtual space” which took place in 2017. In both cases, the implementation of the idea was carried out in close cooperation with an indispensable German partner — the federal public association “Frischluft”. However, in contrast to previous summer school, which was held in Krasnoyarsk on the basis of SibFU, the International Summer School-2018 took place in Berlin. Thus, students of SibFU were trained by leading lecturers of FOM-University.

The main theme of the school was focused on Smart technologies. Russian students got acquainted with new approaches of integrating information technologies in social entrepreneurship (Square mobile application for managing private businesses; co-working; car-sharing; cloud storage; systems for ensuring the economic security of small businesses, etc.). The main feature of the project was the close interlacement of educational and cultural programs. The Russian students had a unique opportunity to visit the Central office of Microsoft in Germany and participate in a conversation with Thomas Fryberg (HR Manager), who knew almost everything about all the current innovations and trends of Smart technologies. In his lecture he told about such important aspects as the process of digitalization of modern society, the prospects for the development of artificial intelligence, forecasts in the field of professions, etc.

In addition, SibFU students visited the Reichstag, which was a unique combination of an architectural masterpiece and smart technologies that envelop the interior of the building.

Looking at exhibit items in the German Museum of technology Russian students could keep track of the evolution of “smart” technologies from the “devices” of the Stone Age to the modern smartphones.

In 2017

In August 2017, Krasnoyarsk hosted the international summer school “Global entrepreneurship in real and virtual space” – a joint project of the Siberian Federal University (Krasnoyarsk, Russia), the Krasnoyarsk regional public organization “INTERRA” (Krasnoyarsk, Russia) and the public Association “Frischluft” (Berlin, Germany) as part of the Program to improve international competitiveness (5-100).

Russian participants were joined by students from Germany, Italy and Britain. It should be pointed out that it was not the first project supported by the School of Business Management and Economics. Summer school 2017 continued the series of projects “Intertime”, where the organizers were “INTERRA” and School of Business Management and Economics. Starting in 2014 in Krasnoyarsk, the next two years there projects took place in Berlin on the basis of public association “Frischluft”. At the same time, the educational component was increasing each time, and in 2017 “Intertime” turned into a completely new form – the International summer school with a comprehensive combination of educational and cultural programs.

The international summer school “Global entrepreneurship in real and virtual space” began with showing the city and its most significant attractions to the foreigners. This allowed participants from different countries to get closer, finding common interests and common ground.

The supportive environment at the training sessions contributed to fruitful communication and establishing contacts, discovering a lot of unusual and interesting things. Lectures and seminars were held by experienced trainers from Germany and Russia, as well as by the best teachers from School of Business Management and Economics of SibFU. In addition, the participants of the school got acquainted with amazing people of our city — representatives of regional business. So, the students communicated with businessman and politician Konstantin Senchenko, as well as with businessman Anatoly Sergeev and others. The discussion was focused on current topics on trends, strategies and priorities for the development of our region, as well as the global world as a whole. Communication with important Krasnoyarsk personalities was really useful for both Russian and European participants, as many theoretical facts were enriched by examples from personal business experience.
After finishing the International Summer School the participants got a greeting letter from Angela Merkel as she was a leader of Christian democratic Union of Germany which brunch was the public association “Frischluft”.

The University

Today Siberian Federal University (SibFU) with over 35,000 students enrolled in its programmes is one of the most actively developing universities in Russia. Annually more than 200 visiting professors — leading scientists from UK, Germany, Spain and USA — deliver their lectures at SibFU.

The University is a winner of the Russian Government grants supporting research projects under the guidance of top-level scholars from Russia and all over the world.

More information

Academic buildings and dormitories of the university are surrounded by natural forest lands and easily accessible by the public transport.

The City of Krasnoyarsk

Krasnoyarsk is the administrative capital of Krasnoyarsky kray — second largest region of Russia. It is a big industrial and educational centre with a population of more than 1 million people, and also an important junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway.

The city is located on the banks of the Yenisey River in the valley formed by the Eastern Sayan Mountains. Nature reserve Stolby ("pillars") has become the city’s visiting card.

Among the famous people born in Krasnoyarsk are artist Vasily Surikov, opera singer Dmitri Hvorostovsky, biathlete Evgeny Ustyugov, skeletonist Alexander Tretyakov and ice-hockey player Alexander Semin.

In March 2019 Krasnoyarsk proudly hosted the XXIX Winter Universiade.

  • Russian student Andrey Kuzmin (Summer School 2020): “On the one hand the on-line format provided a real chance for people from other cities and countries to participate, on the other hand, the offline communication is preferable for contact with people: nothing can replace live interaction, the ability to see real faces and emotions.”
  • Project manager Armin Pialek: “One of the main tasks facing me as the coach was to unite the participants of the MLSH-2019. Since the team was very diverse it was necessary to develop students' skills of successful interaction in various conditions. This approach increases the level of trust between participants and increases their personal responsibility for the result of a joint project. To achieve this goal, Russian and foreign children spent all their leisure time together. Training sessions flowed smoothly into a dinner, where informal communication participants took place.”
  • Kuwaiti student Aldeewly Mohammed: “The closeness of Krasnoyarsk to a nature reserve forms the identity of your city. It is great that residents can have rest in the nature, without leaving the city. I have always been skeptical about the stereotype that bears walk the streets in Russia, but in Krasnoyarsk I believed it. I have never been so close to nature. The views are striking in their uniqueness.”
  • Kuwaiti student Sakeen Younis: “The most exciting moment in our school was working out own start-ups. We had to pass the information we received at training through creative thinking, use personal experience and come up with our own business idea. But the most difficult thing was to present your project to other participants, because our friends had certain questions and critical comments. I often had to defend my point of view. Although during discussions the participants often offered good advice.”
  • German student Andrea Tedone: “When I was told about the “Summer school” in Siberia, I thought it was joke. Nevertheless, and perhaps against all my prejudices, I didn’t miss the chance. Now I know how warm and strong the Siberian summer can be. As for the environment in the working group, it was probably one of the most important tools that helped our coaches convey a rather different vision of the global world from what we are used to. By the end of the project, we were able to form our own “breeding ground” for the start of something new.”
  • Representative of “Frischluft” Daniel Gerjets: “A big thanks and lots of hugs from all the Germans to all the wonderful people that made the summer school in Krasnoyarsk such a special, mind-blowing and unforgettable exchange project. We are looking forward to 2018!”
