What we do
Center for International Youth Projects and Initiatives provides a great variety of activities to support international collaboration in academic, research and business fields
Center for International Youth Projects and Initiatives
CIYPI is a structural unit of Saint Petesburg State University of Industrial Technologies and Design – PROMTECHDESIGN.
Center was established in 2022 as part of the International Projects and Educational Programs Department. The main goal of the Center is to support youth innovative projects and initiatives that contribute to the competitiveness of graduates by shaping project culture and mastering teamwork skills in an international environment, as well as promoting cooperation with foreign universities and organizations.
What our Students Do
Every year, undergraduate and graduate students work on hundreds of research, creative, and social projects. More than 50 startups developed their ideas into real products in the following areas:
More then 50 online and offline events are held every months. Here you can find photos from meetings, hackathons, presentations, competitions, courses, etc.
We Help Ideas Find Teams
One of the hardest challenges is to find a team member that will share the project's vision and mission. We created Project Exchange where every student can open a call and recruit team members with the particular competencies. Also, we encourage industrial partners to place their orders to international teams
Universities and Industrial Partners
We are open for collaboration with companies and organizations from around the world. Our students in international teams do research and develop new products for our international industrial partners. We have more than 60 international agreements.
