Within the framework of a scientific project, we understand the implementation of research and development work aimed at solving topical theoretical and practical problems of sociocultural, economic, political significance. Research projects provide science-based technical, economic or technological solutions.

Initiative projects are often aimed at solving specific problems, which can be social, environmental, economic, etc.

Scientific research at the university is carried out not only through grant funding, but also within the framework of initiative scientific projects. Initiative scientific projects are carried out in the areas of training specialists and in accordance with current scientific areas and topics of higher schools registered with the NSTC. Over the past 3 years, 20 initiative projects have been completed at the university, more than 35 projects are being implemented.

Registration of cards in electronic form in the state and Russian languages for state accounting of initiative projects and projects carried out by concluding contracts with the organization  is registered through the information system.
