Together with UUKi we are planning an outward mission to Russia in November 2018 to take part in a high level bilateral policy dialogue to discuss and agree future higher education collaboration.
This delegation will be led by CEO British Council Sir Ciaran Devane and is part of the ‘UK–Russia year of Education and Science 2017’. The Russian government has launched the National Technology Initiative, a long-term, large-scale investment in areas such as quantum communications, bionics, neuroethologies, big data, artificial intelligence and others. However, the UK is currently in 4th place, behind the USA, Germany and France for collaboration with Russia.
