In June 1999 in Bologna, Italy, the Education Ministers of 29 European countries signed the ‘Declaration on European space for higher education’ (Bologna Declaration). Since that time the ‘Bologna process’ is the name by which the process of voluntary cooperation of educational systems of different states, aimed at the creation of a common educational and scientific space, has been known.
The Bologna process facilitates the movement of those studying and holders of qualifications within countries which are signatories of the Declaration; promotes cooperation between higher education institutions in educational and research activities, as well as the expansion of cultural ties and the strengthening of economic cooperation between the participating countries.
Russia officially joined the Bologna process in 2003, thus confirming its intention to join the common space for higher education, and to follow the principles of the Bologna process.
The February 15 2005 Order of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, ‘On Implementation of the Regulations of Bologna Declaration in the System of Higher Professional Education of the Russian Federation’, is the document which sets out in detail the activities in the framework of the Bologna process.
This document defines as one of the aims of the development of higher education and the implementation of the principles of the Bologna Declaration: ‘...Promotion of the development of academic mobility of students and professors of Universities...’

«.....academic mobility is an international movement of scientists and teachers in order to implement research and teaching activities, exchange experience, the presentation of research results, as well as for other professional purposes...’ Extract from the document: ‘The Concept of State Migration Policy of the Russian Federation for the period until 2025’(approved by The President of Russian Federation)

International educational programs are an instrument for ensuring academic mobility in Russia in implementation of the principles of the Bologna Declaration, as well as the need to enhance the competitiveness of educational services of Russian universities both on the European and world market.

The largest international educational programs that are open to Russia and which provide financial assistance to the development of academic cooperation between universities are:

• Tempus
Tempus (Trans-European Mobility Program for University Studies).
