The paper "title" is an excellent example of a research paper on marketing. This paper attempts to provide the fundamentals of academic collaboration between the UK and Russian Universities through the formation of joint ventures for supporting the educational system in Russia. Universities are exclusively placed as they are specifically involved in all such processes because of their primary role in the areas of research and development, education, and training of individuals. We have also endeavored to explore the current educational system of Russian education, the strengths and the problems existing in it.

The theme of foreign direct investment has been studied and presented along with its contribution to the Russian education system. The role of UK Universities and their academic collaboration with Russian Universities have been analyzed in-depth and the reasons along with benefits of such collaboration have been presented in the paper. Chapter-1 Introduction Introduction Foreign direct investment is the global movement of capital for particular investment purposes in the scenario when the foreign investor acquires authority and control over the specific investment asset. It emerges when foreign companies are establishing or buying operations in some other country.

Foreign direct investment encompasses innovative and new projects, activities of mergers and acquisitions, and expansions of current projects. Foreign investors are mostly attracted by a country’ s general business environment, the strength of research and development base, availability of skilled and non-skilled labor at cheaper rates, wider range of different cultures in the country, economic and political stability, regulatory and tax regime and softer elements like diverse lifestyle and education system. (Brenton, P. 1998) In this paper, we attempt to penetrate the academic collaboration between the United Kingdom and Russia, the environment and the education system currently in place, the nature of collaboration and support of both the education system to each other and the role of foreign investment for boosting up the activities in the education system.
