Zimin Institutes started working with Quacquarelli Symonds (QS, the leading advisory firm focused on analyzing higher education institutions*) and became a part of the 2023 QS Future17 SDG Challenge, a program designed for students from top universities worldwide.
A group of selected students will conduct research and identify the most promising healthcare and biotech applied research directions for the next decade in the context of Zimin Institutes. So students will receive guidance and mentorship from QS and a group of professors and industry experts from QS partner universities.
This project will allow Zimin Institutes to get independent external inputs that will help to clarify the Institutes’ strategy for the coming years. This cooperation with QS also will increase the project visibility – QS will conduct a global PR campaign to promote this project through its key channels.
* QS is globally recognized in the university domain. Among the most notable projects of QS are World University Rankings (www.topuniversities.com) and the QS international higher education network, connecting universities, business schools, and students.
