Moreover, meetings with representatives of administrations of cities, districts and provinces interested in establishing strong ties both with the Irkutsk region in general and with BSU in particular were of great importance.

During these events with the administration of Ningbo city it was possible to discuss the possibilities of implementation of BSU students and teachers mobility programs in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as the implementation of joint scientific research.
