International Cooperation. Our Partners

The Department cooperates with all leading Universities of Russia, Ukraine, Poland and educational scientific centres of other foreign countries in the field of ecology. Together with other Universities of Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary the scholars of the department participate in the international project of Tempus program.

Project results:

- programs for bachelors-specialists have been analyzed and updated; new courses have been  prepared and improved, training of faculty and students has been conducted;

- a curriculum for the Master’s Degree "Environmental Management" was developed; A textbook “Forest Management” was published; The representatives of the department took part in the meetings  of the consortium of project partners and were trained at partner universities;

- the project contributed to the establishment and development of international interuniversity cooperation, including the signing of memorandums on further cooperation in the field of bachelor / specialist training; Students of the 2 nd stage / masters and post-graduate students;

- the material and technical base of the Department of Industrial Ecology was updated, software was purchased to calculate the dispersion of pollutants in the ambient air and to evaluate the life cycle (SimaPro 7.2 Analyst).
