Future cooperation for Science and Technology
The possibility of opening the Kazakh-French Institute of Science and Technology was discussed at a meeting with a delegation from France led by Mr. Gilles Thibault.
During the visit to KazNU, foreign guests got acquainted with the activities of the Kazakh-French Center of «GeoEnergetics», established on the initiative of Presidents N. Nazarbayev and N. Sarkazi in 2010. During this time, many undergraduates and doctoral students of the leading Kazakhstani University were trained at HEIs in France, including under the double-degree program.
The Center is constantly expanding its activities, involving new Universities and French companies in the process of training specialists for Kazakhstan.
Representatives of the inspectorate of the French Foreign Ministry praised the activities of the Center of «GeoEnergetics» and put forward a proposal on its transformation into the Kazakh-French Institute of Science and Technology.
The creation of such a joint Institute will attract investment from French companies operating in Kazakhstan to the implementation of mutually beneficial projects, and it will increase the level of scientific and practical training of students, and will also facilitate the employment of graduates.
