The results of the work show that all our initiatives, as well as the initiatives of our Asian colleagues, are connected by the desire to preserve our common roots, borrow the best scientific and educational practices from each other, and jointly respond to the challenges of the future.

According to the rector of Altai State University Sergey Bocharov, the leading role of Altai State University in the Association of Asian Universities is well-deserved due to the initiatives offered in ties with its partners in the context of the goals of scientific and educational integration.


“The very geographical location of our university in the cross-border region of the Greater Altai, which links the territories of several states with historical ties, obliges us to be a fulcrum for joint research in Central Asia, forming a single Asian educational space, promoting academic mobility and expanding cultural ties between universities in the Asian region,” said Sergey Bocharov.
