The Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies of Kazan Federal University held the meeting of the Board of directors of the Insitute with Olga Vershinina, Director of the Department for External Relations of KFU. 
Throughout the conversation with Ildus Chukmarov, Deputy Director, Director of the Center for Advanced Training, Quality Management and Marketing and Mikhail Varfolomeev, Manager of the ''Environmental Oil'' priority area, Head of the Department of development and operation of deposits of hard-to-recover hydrocarbons, the strategic areas of international cooperation of the Institute were discussed.
''A great number of international educational and research projects implemented at the Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies and their further development and expansion will require joint efforts of the institute and the Department for External Relations. During the meeting with Olga Vershinina we have defined a new pattern of interaction between the Department for External Relations of KFU and the structural divisions'', noted Ildus Chukmarov.
At the meeting the major projects implemented by the Institute in Cuba were discussed: Cupet's personnel improvement at the Supplementary Education Center, quality management and marketing, the planned retraining program ''Рetroleum Engineering'' for the company's specialists which will be implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.
