Russian Polytechnic University to open Information Center in Spain

March 31, 2017

On April 19, Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), one of the leading technical universities in Russia will open the Information Center in Madrid, Spain.

The major aim of the University's Information Center is to boost cooperation between SPbPU and scientific and educational institutions of Spain entailing academic exchange of students and teaching staff, as well as joint participation in scientific and technical projects. On April 19 at 9:30 delegation members of SPbPU will have a meeting with the Director of the Universities of the Government of the Madrid Autonomous Region (Dirección General de Universidades e Investigación) Jose Manuel Torralba Castelló dedicated to the Information Center opening and collaboration opportunities.

In the framework of the Information Center opening, from April 19 to 21, the 'SPbPU Days in Spain' will be held at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, UPM). Scientists and professors of both universities will discuss the most promising areas for scientific cooperation in the field of nanotechnology and telecommunications, computer science, civil engineering and construction.

On April 19, at 16:00, the rectors of SPbPU and UPM will sign a new cooperation agreement indicating intentions of both parties to participate in the student exchange program ERASMUS + (application has already been submitted to the EU), to exchange professors, contribute to Master's programs and Summer schools. An exhibition of Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University's student art-works will also be opened on April 19 at 16:50 within the frameworks of the 'SPbPU Days in Spain'.

The Information Center of Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University will be operating on the basis of the Spanish public foundation "Alexander Pushkin" (Fundación Alexander Pushkin), which has been contributing to the development of friendly and cooperative relations between Russia and Spain for more than 25 years. There anyone can get information about educational programs of SPbPU, its achievements in scientific areas, enrollment for courses and for Summer school modules. It is also expected that the Information Center will become a meeting venue for Russian and Spanish specialists interested in joint participation in scientific, technical and industrial projects. The opening ceremony will be held on April 19 at 18:00 at the Spanish public foundation "Alexander Pushkin", and will be followed by welcome reception at the Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain (April 19 at 19:30) where a number of agreements on cooperation with Spanish universities will be signed.
