The mission of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University is to contribute greatly to the benefit of Mankind through the pursuit of learning, interdisciplinary research, and education.


Kantiana: uniting Epochs and Countries.
From personal success to national excellence.


Strategic priorities

The University is named after Immanuel Kant, not only as an honor to the great philosopher but also shaping the prism through which we look at the world. The research priorities we have selected reflect the Kantian humanist ideals and touch upon the most important spheres of life.

Health culture:

The Kaliningrad region has significant recreational potential, thus the development and implementation of biomedical technologies and other technologically advanced forms of healthcare correspond to the strategy of regional development. Since both social and technological spin in healthcare, as well as maintaining the quality of life and increasing life expectancy are among the University's priorities, we focus greatly on both the contents and organization of healthcare.

Material culture:

The new, digital world is being shaped today, thanks to additive technologies and new materials, and independent control systems. This priority has both theoretical and practical importance for the University and the region: new products and technologies will be needed in a variety of spheres, from medicine to urban development.

The University science mission

The mission is to make the University a national leader in three interdisciplinary areas based on breakthrough achievements in prioritized interdisciplinary research fields. By achieving this the IKBFU will become a trendsetter in technology thus being able to train internationally competitive professionals.

The interdisciplinary priorities are as follows:

  • neurotechnologies;
  • genetic engineering;
  • marine microbiology;
  • nanomaterials;
  • applied engineering technologies;
  • fundamental mathematics and informatics;
  • information security.

These areas make it possible to integrate all the competitive areas into IKBFU's classical structure. Innovative results have been achieved in these areas.

The strategic goal of IKBFU

IKBFU aims at increasing and securing competitiveness in the national and global markets of university education and R&D through developing competencies in new areas. All these will become possible by making breakthrough research in the field of biomedical, neuro-, and nanotechnology as well as in social sciences and the humanities.
