Iryna Kiturka, rector of Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno, discussed the proposals for the development of the University's Strategy with students

Representatives of eight Faculties told the rector about their vision for the development of Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno.
The proposal to participate in the developing of the University's strategy for 2021-2025 was proposed by Iryna Kiturka during a series of autumn meetings with students at the Faculties. During two previous weeks, students developed and discussed constructive proposals in their teams.
– I am convinced that a good result can be achieved when we join our forces. Therefore, for the first time we decided to involve in this process not only the teaching staff, but also students. You have different ways of thinking and, perhaps, a bit different views of what the University of the future should be, – Iryna Kiturka noted at the beginning of the meeting.
The proposals voiced by students concerned improving the quality of the educational process and increasing students ' awareness of the main events in the life of the University. As it turned out, students are still concerned about the strengthening of the training component in education, as well as the activation of contacts with foreign scientists. Iryna Kiturka noted that the organization of meetings with visiting professors will be reviewed taking into account the epidemiological situation. Meetings will be resumed in the near future, but now they can be organized only in online format.
Students expressed interest in including additional subjects beyond their curriculum. This would help to determine the choice of an academic course of the second higher education. Questions about the involvement of students in scientific activities, about providing University classrooms and laboratories with modern equipment were also discussed during the meeting. In addition, the participants of the meeting proposed new approaches to the organization of student self-government, talked about how to facilitate the adaptation of freshmen to their new student life.
– We have already made a big step forward, –the rector said and thanked students for their suggestions. – All your ideas are important; they deserve attention and further discussion. I want you to know that we hear you and support you in everything. The future of the University depends on all of us, on our common interest in achieving the best results.
Iryna Kiturka reminded that she expects to see all the proposals voiced by students in written form by October 25 so that the University management and teaching staff can continue with the developing of University's Strategy for the next five years. In the near future, the rector of Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno will meet students from six other Faculties.

Currently, the construction of a new building of the Science and Technology Park is going on. According to the regulatory deadlines, the completion of the second stage is scheduled for May 2021.

– The main direction of economic development at the present stage is innovation, – the Chairman of the Grodno Regional Executive Committee Vladimir Karanik said during a visit to the Technology Park. – One of the obvious advantages of such Technology parks is that people of different interests and activities gather here. After all, it is at the intersection of the interests of representatives of different spheres that new, most interesting and breakthrough technologies are born.
The total area of the first building of Yanka Kupala State University Science and Technology Park is more than a thousand square meters. With the commissioning of the second stage of the Technology Park for creating innovative products, potential residents will have another 6.5 thousand square meters, while half of the area will be provided for organizing the production process.
– We will provide residents with technological opportunities, and they will be able to place their equipment here and produce an innovative product, –Yury Ramanouski, Vice-Rector for Science at Yanka Kupala State University commented. – At the moment, we continue to form a waiting list and accept applications from residents who wish to rent production facilities in the Technology Park. I would like to remind you of the preferences that residents of the Science and Technology Park can expect: preferential rental of equipment and space, income tax at a lower rate, as well as the possibility of access to University scientific thought.

12 resident companies have already taken advantages provided by the Technology Park. By the way, almost half of them were opened by the staff and students of Yanka Kupala State University. The Chairman of the Grodno Regional Executive Committee was also told that a lot of work is being done at Yanka Kupala State University to attract students and teachers to innovative entrepreneurship during his visit to the Technology Park. Vladimir Karanik spoke with residents and noted that the region has a fairly good industrial potential and the most promising scientific developments, having been tested in small-scale production, can later be launched into large-scale industrial production at enterprises of the Grodno region. Thus, the Science and Technology Park can stimulate the emergence of innovative industries in the region and create new jobs.
