Dr. Irina Bogdanovskaya Awarded Status of Tenured Professor
On June 22, Irina Y. Bogdanovskaya, head of International Laboratory for Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law, was awarded the status of Tenured Professor at a meeting of HSE Academic Council.
The HSE Board of HSE Tenured Professors was established in 2003. So far, this position remains unique to Russian universities and is conferred only at HSE, although a similar honorary title has been granted for many years by Anglo-Saxon universities.
The honorary status of Tenured Professor is awarded to teachers in the position of professor, who have made special contributions to the university. The Board of Tenured Professors is an independent and self-governing body which deals with the strategic, personnel, moral and ethical legal issues of the university.
At the most recent meeting of the Academic Council, HSE Rector, Yaroslav Kuzminov, noted that the number of the Board members and their research fields, as well as the process itself, is similar to the election process at the Russian Academy of Sciences. On the eve of the meeting of the Board of Tenured Professors, each section put forward several candidates, who were then included in the final list.
