Our Partners

  • ISEKI Food Association
  • International Dairy Federation
  • HEDG (the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group)
  • MEGA JSC (Czech Republic)
  • Belarus State Universit
  • Technical University of Munich (Germany)
  • Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra (Portugal)
  • University of Gaziantep (Turkey)
  • University of Milano (Italy)

Given the list of our partners we make sure our students and teachers travel regularly to both share experience and gain newer advanced knowledge through numerous academic mobility programs and partnership agreements.

In 2002, our research team (Head – Prof. A. G. Khramtsov) was awarded the Russian Government Prize in Science and Technology for developing technologies to produce prebiotic lactulose, which can be further used in functional food and beverages. In 2010, the Research School LIFE SCIENCES (field – Biotechnology) was officially announced the leading scientific school of the Russian Federation. And these are only a couple of examples of what we are up to.

Our projects have been implemented throughout the world – from Argentina to India, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Germany, Belarus and Ukraine. And even though we take pride in what we have achieved we yet move ahead, each day, every minute, a steep at a time but this is movement.
