Revival of the Pacific Floating University: The Foundation for Training Scientific Personnel for the Arctic and the Far East
5 September 2022
15:00—16:00
The session is dedicated to the development of the floating universities movement, the revival of the Pacific Floating University, and the promotion of the experience of the Arctic Floating University of Northern (Arctic) Federal University and the floating universities of Moscow State University and the Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Floating universities are a Russian educational technology that is consistent with the Learning through Research formula. It is most effective for training personnel in marine sciences for environmental organizations and manufacturers involved in the exploration and production of minerals, as well as for scientific and educational institutions with expertise in studying the seas and oceans. It involves teaching both students and graduate students the theoretical foundations of marine sciences, ensuring they directly master the practical aspects of such sciences, and also radically improving the skills of young researchers as well as scientific and pedagogical workers by solving applied problems as they take part in scientific expeditions.

Key discussion topics
