World-Class Russian Education!

The goal of Project 5-100 is to maximize the competitive position of a group of leading Russian universities in the global research and education market.


Over the past six years we have organized, or enabled Project 5-100 institutions to participate in, a total of 77 higher education events in Russia and abroad, whose attendees included heads of the Russian government, regions and universities.

Our main areas of expertise are

  • developing event concepts and formats;

  • organizing Project 5-100 universities' participation in tenders for government funding and in major domestic and international higher education events;

  • arranging event visits by delegations from the Russian government, Ministry of Science and Higher Education, Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo), diplomatic corps, etc.;

  • carrying out international activities;

  • promoting Project 5-100 universities at home and abroad;

  • liaising with government agencies;

  • leading projects to design and produce exhibition stands and booths, incl. custom-built ones;

  • preparing tender documents and designing specifications (in Russian and English).

Why Attend?

Attending higher education events allows you to

  • showcase your institution's educational programs;

  • set up partnerships with overseas universities to implement dual-degree, non-degree (e. g., summer school) and scholarly exchange programs, etc.;

  • meet up with existing partners;

  • attract premier faculty and research staff;

  • recruit international students;

  • raise your institution's global profile;

  • participate in core program events (sessions, master classes, round tables) as attendant or speaker;

  • participate in professional development courses included in the core program, etc.

Essential Tips for Participating in Events

Tip #1

If you would like to join an event as a speaker or host your own panel, we recommend that you apply at the earliest possible date. This is because the event program will typically be finalized long before the nominal deadline.

While no application fees are charged as a general rule, all the applications go through a careful review process. Increase the chances of your proposal being selected by choosing a topical issue that would attract international speakers and, ideally, enable you to talk about your institution's unique experience in the field.

Tip #2

Start planning your visit at least three months ahead of the event date.

Schedule meetings with partners, decide which sessions you are going to attend, set up trips to college campuses, map out your communications strategy (think what kinds of publicity to use: social networks, mass media, etc.), prepare handouts in sufficient quantity, book your flight and accommodation – and do it well in advance!

Tip #3

For effective communication, make sure that your institution's delegates are fluent in English, which is the language of most international events.
