International Projects


 

Implemented international projects of KSTU in 2020 under the ERASMUS plus program

Development of PhD and research potential of scientists of Kyrgyzstan (DERECKA)

Coordinator: International University of Kyrgyzstan (Kyrgyzstan)

Aims and Objectives:
Support eligible Partner Countries to address the challenges facing their higher education institutions and systems, including those of quality, relevance, equity of access, planning, delivery, management, governance.
Support the modernisation, accessibility and internationalisation of the higher education field in the eligible Partner Countries.

Project Summary:
In Kyrgyzstan, low budget of research led to massive outflow of highly qualified scientists & lowering their prestige.
The quality & potential of scientific research expertise has declined leading to the mismatch of the existing scientific & innovation potential and production needs in the use of promising technologies, to the rupture of links between science & industry.
The project is aimed at the strengthening research and innovation capacities in Kyrgyzstan through promotion of PhD degrees.
The project consortium includeds 4 EU Universities with big expertise in research methodology and running PhD studies and 7 Kyrgyzstani Universities. The KG partner universities are the core of the active working network established during cooperation started in the project piloted by the Kyrgyz Ministry of Education & Science to introduce first PhD programs.
To achieve the aim, the project consortium will conduct the following activities:
1. Modernisation of existing PhD studies and development of new innovative PhD program compliant with EU standards on specialties that are priority for the socioeconomic development of the country and meet society’s needs.
2. In order to enhance research competences of academic staff and to build innovative research expertise in Kyrgyzstan, the EU partners will provide comprehensive training trainers sessions PhD supervisors and teaching staff on needed topics covering Renewable Energy Technology, Agroeconomics, Public Health, Food Technology & Safety and others.
3. Improvement of administration of PhD programs by training administrators of local PhD programs
4. Promotion of PhD culture amongst academic & non-academic stakeholders and wider society in Kyrgyzstan.
