About the Conference

The concept of "Cultural Transfer" is based on the ideas of transnational material and ideological exchange, global flows and the mutual influence of worldviews. Nizhny Novgorod has historically been a territory of cultural transfer, first as a border town, and later as the founding city and coordinator of the largest trade event of the Russian Empire, the Nizhny Novgorod Fair, and the keeper of its traditions. In the twentieth century, the development of the city as a major center of industry and education contributed to the maintenance of the phenomenon of the Nizhny Novgorod cultural transfer.

Founded in 1996, the Nizhny Novgorod campus of the Higher School of Economics, over 25 years of its development, not only establishes high modern educational standards, but also demonstrates an example of multi-vector interactions of higher education with institutions of business, industry, culture, and government at the regional and federal levels. The mutual transfer of ideas and solutions is based on the principles of openness to new trends in society, economy, science and technology, the foundation of which was laid by the age-old traditions of Nizhny Novgorod entrepreneurship and innovation.
