Nizhny and French scientists to start scientific collaboration

17 Feb '14
The Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod (UNN) in the mid-Volga area and the University of Poitiers in France have inked an agreement calling for collaboration in scientific research and education, the UNN press service announced earlier this month.

The agreement is reportedly expected to step up interaction between the two universities in a broad range of areas, including collaboration involving scientific lab teams, students’ exchange programs, summer schools for students, exchanges of professors, and other areas.

According to UNN, the Nizhny Novgorod-based university has been partnering with the University of Poitiers since 2011 when the two joined Erasmus Mundus, an international consortium of Russian and European universities.

Founded in 1431, the University of Poitiers is one of France’s oldest universities. The Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod is much younger (founded in 1916) but has already evolved into a major fundamental research and education hub for the entire mid-Volga.
