The strategic development of Abai Kazakh National Pedagogical University as a pedagogical research university is ensured by addressing tasks such as:

Establishing a competitive research-oriented university based on the integration of university and academic science, and implementing new scientific achievements into the educational process.


Conducting research across a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines, particularly in areas prioritized for the development of the socio-cultural sphere within the frameworks of the grant and program-targeted funding projects, and addressing issues within the national education system through the transfer of research results into innovative teaching methodologies and educational technologies.


Developing human capital by incentivizing young scientists, educators, and students, and attracting highly qualified specialists from leading research organizations into the teaching and scientific design sphere.


All of these objectives can be achieved through the integration of efforts between university collectives and national research organizations. Concrete organizational forms of integration could include:
Joint creative teams implementing scientific projects funded on a competitive basis, and potentially evolving into startups.
Centers for advanced research formed based on collaborations between the university and national research institutes.
Scientific and educational consortia comprising the university and research institutes, aiming to provide problem-based learning for students, graduate students, and doctoral students under the guidance of leading scientists from national research institutes on contemporary scientific issues.

Abai Kazakh National Pedagogical University has a certain level of experience in such collaboration. This idea was conceived during the scientific-practical conference "Integration of Higher Education and Science" on May 21, 2019, where directors and leading scientists from 19 republican research institutes were invited as guests and speakers. The outcome of the conference was the decision to implement joint scientific projects and the signing of memorandums of cooperation.


In 2020, Abai Kazakh National Pedagogical University funded 15 integration projects through grants totaling 50 million tenge. In 2021, based on the performance, 8 projects were extended for a total amount of 39 million tenge. These integration projects are conducted by scientific organizations such as the Ch. Valikhanov Institute of History and Ethnology, the Institute of Philosophy, Political Science and Religious Studies, the Institute of Mathematics and Mathematical Modeling, the Scientific Center of Microbiology and Virology, the A. Baitursynov Institute of Linguistics, and Research Institutes and Centers of al-Farabi Kazakh National University.


The collaboration resulted in publications in international journals indexed in the Scopus (Web of Science) database with high percentiles and the acquisition of significant scientific data for the preparation of dissertations for doctoral students at Abai Kazakh National Pedagogical University.
