North Ossetian State University has presented a development project for participation in the state program to support universities “Priority-2030”, aimed at creating a new model of universities – centers for scientific, technological, and socio-economic development of the country.

Implementation of the program will transform North Ossetian State University into an innovative type of university, ensure the training of highly qualified personnel capable of combining research, project, and entrepreneurial activities, and contribute to the socio-economic development of the region in priority areas.

As part of participation in the “Priority-2030” program, North Ossetian State University will be able to implement two strategic projects.

The first project involves the development and production of pharmaceuticals, parapharmaceuticals, and cosmetic products, which will increase the scientific and industrial potential of North Ossetia.

The second project is dedicated to the ecosystem for the preparation of pedagogical personnel in the field of natural and exact sciences. It involves the development of a concept for continuous pedagogical education in the field of natural and exact sciences “School – University – Region”, expanding the network of specialized and pre-professional classes in the field of natural and exact sciences, and increasing the number of students involved in research and project activities.

“North Ossetian State University’s participation in the ‘Priority-2030’ program will impact the region’s development, provide an opportunity to strengthen personnel and create new products that will be in demand by industry. We have chosen the main development vectors, taking into account the needs of the republic and business. Firstly, creating an ecosystem for training personnel in the field of natural and exact sciences in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania. Secondly, transforming the results of scientific activities into industrial projects, producing and commercializing knowledge-intensive products. Our priority is pharmacy and biotechnology: in these areas, we are supported by industrial partners,” said the rector of North Ossetian State University, Alan Ogoev, presenting the university’s development program.

Eighty universities have participated in the selection for the “Priority-2030” program to support universities. The results will be announced in April of this year.
