The results of the competitive selection of world-class science and education centers were released. Among the winners is SEC "Engineering of the future", one of the active member of which is Ogarev Mordovia State University.

"Five centers have been selected, most of which are interregional. These are "Engineering of the future", "Advanced production technologies and materials", "Russian Arctic: new materials, technologies and research methods", "World-class Eurasian science and education center" and "Tulatech". All of the above have high research and human resources potential and advanced infrastructure, said Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin at a session of the Government of the Russian Federation.

This is the second batch of «fantastic» five. The first five centres are situated in the Perm region, Nizhny Novgorod, Tyumen, Belgorod and Kemerovo.

It is a firm belief that the development of such centers will add momentum to domestic science to bring it in line with world science as well as to bolster the scientific potential of Russian regions. SECs are believed to be instrumental in handling cutting-edge research, as well as in training qualified staff able solve large-scale scientific and technological problems.

It bears reminding that following the President’s decree at least 15 world-class science and education centers should be created in Russia in the coming years.
