MINSK, 30 October (BelTA) – Belarusian State University (BSU) will get €31 million from the World Bank to set up an interdisciplinary research center, BSU Rector Andrei Korol told the media on 30 October, BelTA has learned.
In June, Belarus and the World Bank signed an agreement on a €100 million loan (a project to upgrade higher education in Belarus). The funds will be also used to develop a modern educational environment at universities, introduce innovative approaches, teaching and learning technologies, and also expand reforms in management and ensuring high quality of education.
“BSU will get €31 million from this sum. A part of it will be used to set up an interdisciplinary research center. The center will be located in the BSU building in 7 Kurchatova Street. The campus also includes three university departments and a number of research institutions and centers,” Andrei Korol said.
He said that the work on the project had already been launched. “These are the funds that will let us get the most advanced equipment for the development of key scientific areas,” the rector said.
