- Although the problem of integration of a higher education institution and its region is not new for Russia, it is relevant to consider the "new regionalization" associated with the increased engagement of universities in the life of their regions. Participation of universities in regional development is connected with the transformation of universities' mission in the global and Russian practices. The new mission of "serving the community" ("a third mission") includes innovative regional development, production of human capital and social participation. Universities that revisit and revise their institutional mission and identity as well as develop their "active regionalism" have received a special status of "flagship universities" in the Russian Federation. The program of establishing flagship universities is not only aimed at developing individual universities but also at the evolution of regional systems of higher education and regional development.
