SUNRAISE long-term cooperation

Cooperation agreements implemented under SUNRAISE

SUNRAISE is aiming at a long-term cooperation, both in terms of academic collaboration (academic mobility, research exchanges, joint supervision of masters' and PhD students, joint research and use of equipment and experimental facilities etc), and also interactions between stakeholders engaged into sustainable management of natural resources in the Arctic and high mountains, and their environmental protection. To ensure the longevity of the SUNRAISE collaboration, the partners are preparing strategic cooperation agreements addressing a broad range of arrangements for keeping the partnership alive, and recognising the continous cooperation as an important priorities. The agreements are still pending. The information on their delivery will be available here below.

Facilitation of academic mobility in Russia

While concrete measures to facilitate physical and credit mobility according to EHEA standards have been discussed within the Russian segment of SUNRAISE, the Federal government of the Russian Federation has made an important move towards the implementation of its Bologna commitments, and developed specific policies supporting mobility arrangements:

  • Order of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the Ministry of Enlightment No. 882/391 of 5/08/2020 "On the organisation and implementation of educational activities for network-based educational programs"
  • Order of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the Ministry of Enlightment No.845/369 of 30/06/2020 "On the approval of the Regulation for recognition by educational organisations of courses, disciplines, modules, internships, non-degree educational programs offered by other educational organisations"

Following up the new regulation, all the universities in Russia had to develop their own policies based on the new Federal requrienments. SUNRAISE teams at partner universities played an important role in the new developments and provided all the input summarising relevant discussions in project working groups. As a result, three Russian partner universities adopted internal regulation adhering to the new Federal requrienments as well as SUNRAISE objectives (original texts in Russian):
