MIPT Rector Nikolay Kudryavtsev has commented on the results achieved by the Institute in the Times Higher Education BRICS & Emerging Economies University Rankings 2017. He stressed the growing prominence of MIPT as a driver of technological progress: “MIPT focuses on the challenges laid out in the Strategy of Scientific and Technological Development of the Russian Federation. Last year, the Institute became a national center of competences in the field of artificial intelligence — one of the pillars of the digital economy. The AI research conducted by the center will be commissioned by major companies such as Sberbank, Rostelecom, and Ruselectronics. Another research focus is on the technology necessary for the Arctic region development. Along these lines, we are working on technologies for the energy industry, navigation, mineral exploration, and medicine adapted to the harsh Arctic conditions. The foundation for this and other MIPT research centers was laid thanks to Program 5-100, which saw over 70 fundamental and applied labs established at the Institute over the past five years. In this effort, we were joined by both our long-time and new partners: the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as tech giants and leading companies in the information technology industry. In 2018, we are planning to remain on the same track, opening 10 more laboratories with RAS to attract additional competencies and enhance this cooperation. By focusing on priority areas and promoting collaboration with the industry, we have increased the amount of research 1.5 times, to 2.2 billion rubles, over half of which come from major high-tech companies in Russia.”
The Times Higher Education (THE) Emerging Economies University Rankings 2018 comprises a total of 378 universities from 42 countries‚ across four continents. The scores are calculated from judging: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume‚ income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff‚ students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).
Russia is the fifth most represented in the table‚ with 27 institutions ranked — up from 24 in the previous year‚ and led by Lomonosov Moscow State University‚ which retains its position at number three, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology at 11th, up one place, and National Research Nuclear University MEPhI at 19th.
