The strategic objective of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University is to provide human resources and technological support for the innovative development of the Russian exclave region on the basis of clusters formed in the Special Economic Zone of the Kaliningrad region.
The mission of the University is to train competitive and qualified specialists, applying the latest technologies in order to ensure sustainable social and economic development of the Kaliningrad region.
To reach its strategic objective, the University focuses on several priorities. First of all, it is education and training of highly qualified and competent specialists for the innovative branches of the economy of the Kaliningrad region. It is also necessary to create favourable conditions for attracting experienced specialists to the region. The University modernizes its infrastructure and installs unique and most sophisticated equipment in order to involve young scientists in fundamental and applied research. I believe that further development of innovative educational programmes and research will change the image of the region, and significantly improve the quality of life both in the Kaliningrad region and North-West Russia in the years to come.
And finally, the University strives to protect and promote Russia's interests and cultural heritage in the Kaliningrad exclave and the Baltic sea region.
