Perhaps the most important event is the anniversary of the university.  KFU is one of the oldest universities in Russia and in 2014 celebrates the 210th anniversary of its foundation. However, the university is not only proud of its significant past but also looks to the future with confidence. In 2013, in the fierce competition Kazan Federal University won the right to participate in the program of improving the competitiveness of universities of the world's leading research and education centers. The goal of this program is to increase the rating of Russian universities and output them to the top positions. The results of such fruitful work are visible. This year, KFU raised to 50th positions in the rankings QS, and is now part of the group "551 - 600" international ranking. No doubt orientation of the University for a Research Trend, including joint projects with world leaders in this field, influenced on these achievements. Perhaps the cooperation with RIKEN Institute of Japan is a case in point.
