One of the functions of the IISNC is to assist in training research workers, in particular young researchers. Therefore, our institute in cooperation Mongolian University of Education has been organized the Summer School since 2003 accordingly. During the Summer School, an international scientific conference has been held among the participants of the Summer school involving young Mongolian researchers from research institutes of Mongolia since 2004 on an annual basis. We think that this conference renders them an opportunity to seek common interests on the matters of Mongol studies and gives a potential for cooperation that would encourage them to exchange information and knowledge and to promote Mongol studies in other countries.
At present, the Institute has 13 workers and has its own Information center. Five of them are technical workers and their salary is funded from the Mongolian Government budget. 8 of them are scientific researchers and their salary is funded from academic research projects, which are financed by the Science &Technology Foundation, Mongolia.
At present time within the scope of training activities for the staff of IISNC and capacity building of the Institute, three scientific researchers (B.Ankhbayar, P.Chultemsuren and B.Zoljargal) studied in Russia and PR of China for their doctoral and master degree programs.
Our mission is to study on an international level, nomadic civilization, to study, preserve and popularize the tangible and intangible heritages of the nomads and to bring together the efforts of the International researchers in this field.
The IISNC’s priority area is to conduct research that is in conformity with the objectives of the Conventions on UNESCO’s 2003-2005 cultural heritages and protecting and promoting of diversity of cultural expressions.
