On May 26, 2020, within the International scientific and technical online conference "Spatial Data in the Context of Digital Transformation", the video forum "Modernization of the MIIGAiK postgraduate school: pro & contra" took place in virtual format.
The issues of modernizing post-graduate studies was not arisen right now – this process has been agitating the academic community for a long time, at least since 2013, when the Ministry of Science and Education RF decided to make the postgraduate education by the third stage of higher education. This means: PhD curricula in accordance with the Federal State Educational Standards (FSES), a final scientific qualification thesis that is not equal to the defense of a PhD thesis, and a number of "innovations" that the reform brought to the traditional process of researcher training.
MIIGAiK is the national coordinator of the international project ERASMUS+ "Modernization of postgraduate education in natural Sciences and improvement of pedagogical methods" (MODEST, 2018-2021)
