In 2014, Rossotrudnichestvo launched a new “Joint Alumni Day” project aimed at developing and strengthening of mutually beneficial relations with the foreign representatives of political, social, scientific and business circles having graduated from Russian (Soviet) universities.
Russian Centers of Science and Culture and Rossotrudnichestvo foreign representative offices conduct events dedicated to the Joint Alumni Day.
The project received support from the Russian Embassies abroad, as well as various associations of foreign graduates of Soviet and Russian universities. The opening ceremonies of the project, already held in the representative offices of Rossotrudnichestvo in Jordan, Morocco, Poland, India, Vietnam, Bulgaria and other countries, were attended by such guests of honor as outstanding graduates of the Soviet and Russian universities, including prominent public officials, diplomats, scholars, intellectuals and many other foreign representatives having achieved great success and recognition in the world. The events were also attended by leading Russian universities’ representatives, using this opportunity to keep in touch with their foreign graduates.
Various activities of the project having been carried out this autumn and having already sparked a great interest of foreign and Russian communities will be held on an annual basis.
