Within the framework of cooperation, the company allocated financial resources to the New Economic School (NES) for the purchase of an educational building. The corpus is specially designed for educational activities and is situated at the territory of Skolkovo Innovative Centre.
NES is currently using a 4,800 m² space in the new building. It includes 13 classrooms, designed for 15-110 seats, a computer class with sets of multimedia equipment, a library, offices of teachers and staff, meeting and archive rooms.
“For the first time in almost 30 years of history, we have our own campus. Finding our own home became possible only thanks to the generous support of partners and friends of the school. We are grateful to RNG JSC for the assistance provided to fulfill our dream,” noted Ruben Enikolopov, the rector of the New Economic School.
The charity program of RNG JSC support for NES started in September 2020. Over two years of cooperation, 50 students from different regions of Russia received grants to study at the country’s leading university, another 103 students were provided with a hostel on preferential terms, and two nominal professorial positions were also established.
«NES occupies a special place in the scientific community. The challenges of the time require a competent and professional approach, for many years, the university has been graduated specialists of the highest level. I am sure, that moving to the new building will give impetus to the development of economic education and will contribute to new scientific achievements,” said Vladimir Rakitin, General Director of RNG JSC.
