The University mission is to develop interdisciplinary research and education answering global and local agendas that will serve as the basis for critical reflection for the benefit of Humanity


Kantiana: uniting Epochs and Countries.
From personal success to national excellence.


Strategic priorities

The University is named after Immanuel Kant to honour the great philosopher and to shape the prism?
The University is named after Immanuel Kant, not only as an honour to the great philosopher, but also shaping the prism through which we look at the world. The research priorities we have selected reflect the Kantian humanist ideals and touch upon the most important spheres of life.

Culture of health:

the Kaliningrad region has a significant recreational potential, thus the development and implementation of biomedical technologies and other technologically advanced forms of healthcare corresponds to the strategy of regional development. Since both social and technological spin in healthcare, as well as maintaining the quality of life and increasing life expectancy are a priority, the University focuses both on contents and organization of healthcare.

Material culture:

Additive technologies  and new materials, as well as independent control systems  are already creating a new material world. This priority has both theoretical and practical importance for the University  and the surrounding region: new products and technologies will be needed in a variety of spheres, from medicine to urban development.

The University science mission

It is to develop into a national leader in three interdisciplinary areas based on breakthrough achievements in biotechnologies and neurotechnologies; materials science and nanotechnology; information and communication technologies; to become a trendsetter in technology; to train internationally competitive professionals.

There are several  interdisciplinary priorities within the three major research areas:

  • neurotechnologies;
  • genetic engineering;
  • marine microbiology;
  • nanomaterials;
  • applied engineering technologies;
  • fundamental mathematics and informatics;
  • information security.

The three interdisciplinary areas make it possible to integrate all competitive areas developing at IKBFU as a classical university. Innovative results have been achieved in these areas.

The strategic goal of IKBFU

It is to increase and secure competitiveness in the national and global markets of university education and R&D through developing competences in new areas and activities in line with the breakthrough achievements in the field of biomedical, neuro-, nanotechnology as well as in social sciences and the humanities.
