What Was the Most Important Event of 2021 at RSU?
Although this year has passed in the shadow of COVID-19, life has continued in all areas and industries – writers have published new books, artists have written songs and created works of art, athletes have trained and participated in competitions, researchers have worked hard in laboratories conducting research and making significant discoveries.
RSU lecturers and students have expressed their opinion on which event, achievement or discovery has been the most significant this year at RSU.
RSU Research Week. A lot of teamwork, high quality and excellent organisation, modern technologies and solutions, scientifically sound results, presentations, discussions, interesting guest lectures, new cooperation opportunities, experience exchange, unforgettable meetings with conference participants, local and international experts.

I am glad that RSU entered the Times Higher Education (THE) 2022 ranking and was ranked among the top 501-600 universities in the world. Participation in THE and QS rankings for several years affirms that RSU complies with international education quality standards.

In my opinion, it was the B-Space Business Incubator's Demo Day. This was our incubator's first "graduation". It proves that we as a university are moving towards smart innovation and business development.
