4 5-100 projects is an initiative of comprehensive academic excellence for Russian universities which aims at the deep transformation of institutions in accordance with the best models and international practices. Without losing traditions consolidated over centuries resulting in a proud academic reputation of scientific research at the highest level, it reinforces a position within the global education market. The project was launched in 2013 to support the best universities of Russia scheduled for an eight-year plan.

Increasing the appeal of universities in order to recruit the most brilliant international professors and scholars and attracting the most talented students from all over the world as well as promoting education and research. This transformation has three key objectives.

1 2 3

Changing the University´s environment by upgrading to an international firstclass level through the creation of extensive communication in the English language; establishing a wide variety of international educational programs. New accommodations and services in a more practical and comfortable campus, attuned to the objectives pursued. Reforming the University´s research: partnering with leading international research teams to boost universal enrichment; increasing presence in the most prestigious international research journals and developing a more active collaboration among universities, companies and the industry. Increasing demand for our technology transfer in the global market of innovative products. Increase the appeal of universities to brilliant international professors and thus attract the most outstanding students from all over the world to promote education and research.



To achieve these objectives, we have implemented many international practices such as the supervision and approval of strategic and financial plans of all universities adhered to project 5-100. Other practices included are to ensure the reform of the universities´ strategic plans of development, management and autonomy.


The challenge? Be among the 100 best universities of the world We want to take advantage of the experience of the Russian scientists who were actively involved in the discoveries that have shaped the modern world. The universities participating in the project are very diverse, but share the same goal: to be amongst the best in Russia in a specific field and develop outstanding potential in this field worldwide. Historically, mainstream research in Russia has been channeled through the research institutions of The Russian Academy of Sciences. Talented international students want to study at the universities where the new knowledge that the market demands are generated and where students can participate in cutting-edge research and entrepreneurship or start their own research projects. Most international professors are looking for the same thing. We welcome you to Russia to our project 5-100 universities. The Russian Federation has set itself to positioning five of its educational institutions among the 100 best universities in the world by the year 2020, as well as the enrollment of 15 per cent of students and at least 10 percent of academic staff from abroad.


7 The initiative of Academic Excellence Project 5-100 aims to improve Russian higher education in all aspects. It has a clear goal and has progressed steadily from the first year of implementation. The success of the Project 5-100 is also measured based on the number of students and international professors and academics. Some institutions are already showing significant progress in this area, for example, the High School of Economics has increased its international staff by more than 50% in the last year, and St. Petersburg Polytechnic University is only three percentage points off the goal of the project by which at least 15% students must come from other countries. There is a long way ahead, but universities have been provided with important resources that will allow the advance of Russia in the world rankings.

The ambition is becoming reality Timoteo OConnor, vice-rector of academic affairs of the National Research University of Science and Technology MISIS (NUST MISIS) of Moscow, says: “A profound change in institutional culture is taking place; the various parties have agreed on the strategic goals of the project, as well as on the roadmap to achieve them. A new entrepreneurial spirit of participation and commitment has arisen�.



And what is the main message of the project 5-100 for the global academic community (and your future students)? As Charles Darwin stated: “Species that have learned how to collaborate have prevailed”. Through this project we want to boost long-term collaborations among Russian and international universities so that the institutions are enhanced by the collaboration and synergies of both, academics and students.. But what can Russia offer that others cannot? OConnor says: ” A sense of urgency to improve education and science has permeated in Russia, with unique opportunities for institutional growth as well as professional and personal development. There is a great desire to try new ideas and take calculated risks concerning the improvement of the quality of education and Russian science. We are willing to accept the change and are open to new approaches and methods to enhance learning and foster the community, we have opened a new educational scenario in Russia”.
