Memorandum on Cooperation signed by the International Union of Railways and PGUPS


On September 9, the Memorandum on Cooperation was signed by the International Union of Railways (UIC) and Emperor Alexander I St. Petersburg State Transport University (PGUPS).

Earlier, the signing was being planned during the visit of the UIC delegation to Russia, but due to the circumstances caused by the pandemic, the Memorandum was signed during a teleconference between the UIC Headquarters in Paris and PGUPS in St. Petersburg. The teleconference allowed UIC Director General François Davenne to meet PGUPS Rector Alexander Panychev.

During the conversation the issues of cooperation were discussed between the UIC and the University in the scientific and educational fields.

UIC Director General F. Davenne and PGUPS Rector A. Panychev signed the copies of the Memorandum on Cooperation, which will now be exchanged by mail.
