New Double Master Contract with the University in Kazan

Signature of Contract
Yesterday, the TU Bergakademie concluded a new contract about double master programmes in the field of palaeontology and stratigraphy with the Russian University in Kazan. From 16 to 23 December, a delegation from Kazan is in Freiberg.

At 18 December, the dean of faculty 3, Prof. Klaus Spitzer, signed a new cooperation contract about double master degrees for the next three years and gave the master awards of the three recent double master students of Kazan in Freiberg to the Director of the Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies of the Kazan Federal University, Prof. Danis Nourgaliev.

The joint double master degree programme with the Institute for Geology and Petroleum Technologies of the Kazan Federal University, belonging to the ten leading universities in Russia, existed since 2010. Currently, TU Bergakademie is hosting master students from Kazan for the third time. In 1989, the collaboration in the field of paleontology and stratigraphy started with research and the organisation of international conferences as e.g. the International Congress for the Stratigraphy of Carbon and Perm 2014 or the International Kazan Golovkinsky Stratigraphic Meeting in 2014, 2017 and 2019.
