SPIEF-2021: "Coadaptation Issues from School to University"


4 June 2021

June 4th, the session "Coadaptation Issues from School to University" unfolded in the framework in the section dedicated to “The Human Factor in Responding to Global Challenges” of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2021.

Lifelong learning and a focus on the requirements of a fast-changing world are leading to a transformation of secondary education. Schools provide people with the foundation needed for higher education and professional development. It is therefore more crucial than ever for them to be able to react quickly to emerging needs for particular practical skills. There is also a growing need for the educational process to be developed in cooperation with universities. What challenges does the education system face in this period of uncertainty? What factors should be considered when developing new educational frameworks and fresh instructional design initiatives? What international experience exists in terms of bringing school and university education into alignment, and personalizing school education?

The meeting was moderated by MGIMO Rector A.Torkunov and had for speakers the Minister of Education S.Kravtsov, the Head of the Talent and Success Foundation; member of the Presidential Council for Science and Education of the Russian Federation E.Shmeleva, the General Director, HR Director of Yandex in Russia E.Bunina, the Executive Officer of the General Delegation for the French Language and the Languages of France Paul de Sinety, the Director of the Gorchakov Lyceum of MGIMO R.Kotov, the partner of BCG A.Stepanenko and the Deputy Head of Rossotrudnichestvo P.Shevtsov.
