The IV Plekhanov Professors & Lecturers Forum was held on December 17, 2015. The main themes were issues about university staff potential and development. The forum was attended by over 70 people, representing 15 universities of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk, Tashkent, Moscow region, and Belarus.

There was a lively discussion in connection with reports about university staff motivation in research, integration into the international scientific society, including increasing activity in academic and professional networks. Moreover, reports about attracting and retaining young teachers and scientists drew participants’ attention.

Maybe these decisions, which were made at the IV Plekhanov Professors & Lecturers Forum, will contribute to improving the quality of Russian education system.
