- Konstantin Gennadyevich, what is the purpose of your visit?

- We are working together on a BRICS project within the framework, which is aimed at developing new materials for construction, including transport construction. Three countries are involved in the implementation of this interesting project: India, China and Russia, and each country is doing some part of this project.

The second purpose of my visit is to discuss the establishment of two international academic journals. Both of them will be included in all international databases. The journals will be published in Russian and in English.

The second international academic journal will be published in cooperation with the Chinese and Indian scientists. The publication will be in English with an annotation in Russian and Chinese.

- I studied at NRU MGSU, graduated with a degree in «Civil engineer». After graduation, I worked in a factory of reinforced concrete pipes in Moscow. After that I did postgraduate studies at SRC named after A.A. Gvozdev. In 1993 I defended my thesis «High-strength concretes with mineral additives». After that I worked in different research organizations in Turkey, Cyprus, Mexico.

- How do you assess the education level in Russia and how does it differ from the American one?
