The International Academy of Agrarian Education is called upon to actively promote the development of agricultural education and science, the integration of the scientific and pedagogical community to create a single educational space. The Academy operates in the territories of the Russian Federation, the Republic of Kazakhstan, Poland, Germany, the Republic of Moldova, the Republic of Ukraine and other states. The Academy in its activities is guided by the Constitution, the current legislation of the Russian Federation, generally recognized principles and norms of international law and the Charter of the Academy.
The Academy operates on the basis of the principles of self-government, voluntariness, equality of members, legality, transparency, democracy, independence of science, alternative solutions to scientific and educational problems, links between science, education and practice. MAAO participates in the certification and training of scientific and pedagogical personnel, organizes, in the manner prescribed by law, higher educational institutions, departments and research organizations for the purpose of training specialists, conducts educational and scientific activities, publishes scientific, popular science, educational and methodological, advertising and other literature, institutes prizes, medals, scholarships and other awards and encouragements for outstanding work in the field of science and agricultural education. MAAO creates regional branches, branches and representative offices. MAAO promotes the integration of scientific forces for the implementation of international programs in the field of ecology, biology, biotechnology, genetics, breeding, crop production, agriculture, reclamation, mechanization, electrification, chemicalization and plant protection, land management, economics and management of the agro-industrial complex, livestock and veterinary medicine, radiophysics, biophysics and radio engineering.
MAAO is a legal entity from the moment of its state registration, owns separate property and an independent balance sheet, can, on its own behalf, acquire property and personal rights, bear obligations and make transactions, conclude agreements and contracts.
The Academy operates on the basis of the principles of legality, publicity, democracy, independence of science, alternative solutions to scientific and educational problems, links between science, education and practice.
