In 2014, the Bauman Growth Lab was launched at Bauman Moscow State Technical University as a new center for entrepreneurship and innovation. The center features events and activities to bring together undergraduates in technical sciences with students in management, law, business, and economics to create teams for business projects. Bauman University is among Russia’s top engineering schools, and the Growth Lab is one of the Russia’s first centers devoted to establishing entrepreneurship-focused curriculum for engineering students.
During their study tour to the United States, representatives from Bauman University visited leading U.S. engineering programs and innovation centers to learn best practices for entrepreneurship education. The discussion for “The Future of Commercialization for Russian Science” will feature perspectives from Sergei Borisov, the Bauman Growth Lab’s Director, and a discussion on the long-term challenges and opportunities facing US-Russia cooperation for science, technology, and business with Ann Domorad, Senior Managing Director at the American Councils for International Education.
