Long-tail markets    

Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed the national government to move as quickly as possible to close inefficient domestic universities, particularly those which provide low-quality education to their students.

He issued the order during the joint meeting of the State Council Presidium and the Presidential Council on Science and Education on 6 February, which focused on the Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development, adjusting the system of vocational and higher education to “economic requirements, expectations of the state and society” and more interaction between academic institutions, government and employers.
