Rector, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor Vladimir Trukhachev presented a report at the Second meeting of the of the Russia-Africa Partnership Forum Scientific Council Secretariat. The speech was devoted to the interaction of the Timiryazev Academy with African states. Participants discussed the problems of Russian-African developing cooperation in the field of agriculture, biological resources and medicine. Special attention was paid to teaching and research work of undergraduate and graduate students from African countries. Among the promising areas of cooperation between the Timiryazev Academy and African countries, one can single out the training of personnel at all levels of education, the implementation of network educational programs. For example, the university is considering the possibility of opening a master's program in the direction of «35.04.04 Agronomy - "Agrotechnology in the tropics and subtropics" / "Tropical and subtropical crop production"». It will be beneficial for both parties to create the Information and Analytical Center for Agroecological Testing on the basis of RSAU-MTAA. Such a project will require the support of international organizations such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - FAO, the World Bank, as well as specialized Russian companies.
