During his visit to Italy, A.S. Linnikov, Vice-Rector for International Cooperation, visited the Ministry of Education of Italy. He met with Maria Assunta Palermo, the Director of the Department of Regulation of Educational Activity and Assessment of the National Education System.

During the negotiations, it was decided that the FinU would develop the Continuing Education Concept at the primary level (high school) by involving the Lyceum of the Financial University in international activities and international scholastic exchange. Such a project will give the high school kids new exciting opportunities and provide broader prospective to their professional future. A.S. Linnikov and M.Palermo have also discussed ways to engage Russian and Italian schools in joint initiatives, including introductory missions and summer schools.
