On behalf of the Russian Federation Ministry of Science and Higher Education please accept my greetings on the coming New Year 2019!
Traditionally when seeing the Old Year out, we do the accounting of what has been done. And the New Year we meet with our plans and expectations. We all understand that our future successes first and foremost are the result of the work which we have completed in the past and the present. But the New Year holidays are special since they invariably make us feel like there is magic in the air, make us believe in wonder, and give us optimism and energy.
The year of 2019 promises to be eventful. Russia is preparing to host the World Winter Universiade, and the fulfilment of ambitious national projects on Science and Education will start. The new year will definitely set new tasks and goals before us. I am sure that by our joint efforts we will achieve great successes and high results, and we will add bright and meaningful pages to the history book of 2019.
My most sincere wishes of good health, peace, happiness and wellbeing to you and your nearest and dearest in this coming year!
