The leaders of the rating in the field of "agriculture" were the Timiryazev Academy, Stavropol State Agrarian University and Peoples' Friendship University of Russia. The formation of the final lists was influenced by three factors - the level of applicants, scientific publications, as well as assessments of universities during reputation surveys.
It is worth noting that the Timiryazev Academy is included in the ratings of the 75 most influential universities in Russia and the hundred best universities in Russia according to RAEX.
Handball competitions were held, as part of the IV Moscow Beach Games. According to their results, the women's team of Timiryazev Academy won the gold medal, and the men's team took 2nd place. In total, 7 teams took part in the sports tournament.
"Our athletes managed to win in rather difficult fight with the team "Territory of sports." We hope that in the future our women's team will remain in the lead." - said Alexey Peredelsky, mentor of the men's and women's team, acting head of the Department of Physical Culture.
"Our young men also confidently claimed leadership, but in the final lost to the Krasnodar team, whose players are members of the Russian national team. The opponent is very formidable and so far invincible, so we got silver medal. But we will strive for victory!"
